Previous participants in training courses and workshops


”We offered the candidates of the Fontys Think Bigger Price a pitch training. The training was assessed very positively: pitching is an art after all! Ralf understands this art like no other.”

Jessy Kouwenberg-Popelier

Fontys University

”During Project 1B “the New Business Challenge” at Fontys University we also organized a pitch workshop. This pitch workshop was given by Ralf. It was absolutely great. The way how he interacted with the student was super. The workshops were interactive and fun, the students really opened up, enjoyed it and showed that they also learned a lot from the workshop. In case anybody is looking for a trainer for a presentation or pitching training/workshop I would absolutely recommend him.”
