In his keynote speeches Richard de Hoop motivates his audience by calling on them to focus on the strengths of each individual and to place that person where he or she can best use their talents. Just as each instrument in an orchestra has its own musical role to play. He calls this the ‘the Rock ‘n roll of strengths’. Richard de Hoop’s advice to all those who have a motivating leadership role is: ‘look for the sparkle in your employees’ eyes’.

Richard de Hoop on “How resilience makes us future proof”


    Keynote by Speaker Richard de Hoop

    Harmonising together

    • Are you like the calm bass that establishes the rhythm, or do you play the trumpet, full of initiative within your team?   Richard de Hoop and his team have translated the Team Role Theory developed by Dr. M. Belbin to an orchestra.  Just as an orchestra requires a number of musicians to play together in harmony, human teamwork requires different personalities in order to effectively tackle problems and challenges.  Based on modules such as ‘temperaments’, ‘commitment’ and ‘the music in criticism’, they will give your organisation a metaphor you will enjoy for years to come.
    • Richard compares the range and diversity of peoples’ characters to musical instruments. A drum represents an active, motivated, hands-on pacesetter, whereas the horn is the unobtrusive yet observant team player. To create the right symphony all instruments are important – as members in a team are. When people work under a motivating conductor (their superior) a full sound experience and top performances can be reached by the entire group.

    Music of the future

    • How will our future look like? With all the major changes in the world we have to admit that we simple do not have the answer on this question. The insecurity about what tomorrow brings is closely related to the stress and strain many of us experience today.
    • In this keynote Richard adresses the topic from a from a social/psychological angle. He talks about the radical changes and losses in his personal life. Suddenly all these clichés about dealing with change start to give meaning. With this genuine story Richard enables his audience to adapt a different view on resilience and change. He alleviates his audience’s fear of change and demonstrates how everybody can continue to be useful to society.
