Speaker and Chairman

Authoritative and scintillating speaker

Gerrien Anbeek is an inspiring international speaker and chairman of the day at conferences and in the business world. Recently, she published her book: Anyone can park a Tesla – Leadership in Digital Transformation.  She publishes articles in Dutch and English on leadership and digital transformation. Gerrien graduated in  Interdisciplinary Social Sciences (MSc), Management & Organisation from Utrecht University and completed the BSc Personnel & Organisation from Hogeschool Utrecht. In 2010, she completed the post master for legal mediator and ADR specialist at the University of Amsterdam. She is a certified coach and non-executive director. Gerrien can be booked as a speaker, chairman and facilitator via Marga Miltenburg of ZijSpreekt.


Gerrien combines humour and content during her presentations and workshops. She is a social scientist and an expert in the field of HR, leadership and digital transformation in organisations. She combines a charismatic way of presenting and connecting with her audience with a wealth of knowledge. It is all about people and their stories, and Gerrien makes sure that they get moving themselves.

For organisations, she can convert the results of a workshop into the joint definition of a vision, mission or strategy, or into the description of an organisation chart and digital transformation process. She responds to the client’s situation and provides concrete customised solutions in the area of leadership development, team building, processes, organisational structure and culture. In this way, organisational development of people and organisations goes hand in hand.

Gerrien has more than 25 years of experience with international complex change projects at clients. At conferences and in workshops she gives a unique insight into current trends in organisations and society. She addresses themes such as leadership, digital transformation, AI, big data, the labour market, the future of work and remuneration.


Her inspired and empathic way of speaking make Gerrien a charismatic and engaging personality. As a speaker and chairman she is accessible, dynamic and entertaining. Her lectures are experienced as valuable and inspiring because of her broad knowledge and expertise, because of the interactive practical cases with which she underpins her vision and because she sets people in motion with her lectures and workshops.

Gerrien has extensive experience as a chairman and speaker at events, off-sites and conferences. Through Schouten & Nelissen she has regularly provided leadership training and team coaching. Together with the client, she will fill in the content and form of the workshop and make sure the day goes according to plan.

Management Retreat Santenay

Gerrien Anbeek and Cint Kortmann offer an innovative concept of management training and retreat in Santenay, Burgundy; the MANAGEMENT RETRAITE. Distinctive is the acquisition of knowledge on topics such as digital transformation, big data and robotics in an inspiring environment, combined with accelerated leadership development. But we do more: By underpinning results and insights about where the organisation is going with smart tools and dashboards, we create instant value and competitive advantage. Leadership development goes deeper and teambuilding and cultural change are better anchored by a concrete spot on the horizon with data visualisation. Visits to leading and innovative wineries enhance the experience and wine tastings provide the necessary joy the vivre.

Gerrien Anbeek

“I like it best when I can add value and make a difference for my audience with my substantive knowledge and experience, such as (digital) transformation and HR, the labour market, cultural change and the future of work. My lectures, publications and book are the perfect medium for this. Bringing new facts and insights and making them applicable for my clients and audience is much more to me than proclaiming all kinds of opinions on trends.”
