Maarten worked as my speaking coach for TEDxHagueAcademy. It was a very enjoyable experience. Maarten gave very helpful suggestions for finding better ways to express myself. His focus on calmness, intonation
and grammar was encouraging. He is sharp, asks challenging questions
that remain respectful, and made me reflect on myself. I had great
pleasure in working together. April 22, 2014

Maarten Mens is een authentieke presentatiecoach. Hij is sterk in het spiegelen op gevoel en gedrag en zet je aan het denken. Hij stelt vragen, is waar nodig confronterend, maar altijd duidelijk en helder. Hierdoor kom jij op je eigen antwoorden en actiepunten om je doel te bereiken. Maarten prikkelt en daagt je uit.
Wat bij mij eerst nog aan de binnenkant onduidelijk voelde, komt gedurende de training naar buiten. Waar ik knelpunten ervoer, heb ik nieuwe inzichten gekregen .
Bij zijn coachen staat vertrouwen en openheid centraal. Met zijn kalmte geeft hij je dat vertrouwen en weet hij met respect je vergaande feedback te geven.

Maarten maakt presenteren leuk!

Maarten is an excellent discussion leader. He really engages his audience, makes people feel heard, is witty, thinks out of the box, keeps people interested and knows when to sum up and move on to a different subject, and (if appropriate) brings in a lot of humour. He is very comfortable facilitating both small and large groups discussions and events. He pays a lot of of attention to preparing the discussions/events with his clients, ensuring their objectives are met.

Research Director at IMR, Bergen, Norway

In March 2011 I organized an international meeting (Bergen, Norway) on the use of MPA (Marine Protected areas) as a tool in the toolbox for management of living marine resources. The meeting was organized in plenary sessions and working groups and participants came with different background and represented 31 different countries around the world. To help on communication between the participants I asked Maarten Mens to chair a debate the first day using the “House of commons” approach. Very few of the participants knew this form of debate, but were pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Personally I was very satisfied with the debate and the enthusiastic reactions from the participants, in addition the debate helped in forming opinions for the following working group meetings. Finally, I have to express that Maarten led the debate in an excellent way. It was of great help for the rest of the meeting.

“In november 2009 kwamen visserijondernemers, beleidsmakers en wetenschappers in Rotterdam bijeen. Het doel was ideeënuitwisseling over visserijinnovatie tussen zes Noordzeelanden inclusief gastland Nederland. Hoogtepunt in het programma was een Lagerhuisdebat. Zoals altijd slaagde Maarten Mens er als discussieleider in om deelnemers op hun gemak te stellen en uit te dagen actief stelling te nemen in discussies over gevoelige onderwerpen. Met dit bijzondere talent heeft Maarten patent op opmerkelijke bijeenkomsten”

In 2008 a consortium of seafood bodies from around the world came together to fund and review organisations that were providing advice to consumers on trade on fish sustainability. Maarten was a core founder of this group and helped define the values of the study as well as steering the group and consultants through the process.
