EU youth eventhttp://www.rogierelshout.eu/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/25687964643_c639f6d1e8_k.jpg
At the EU youth event I designed and co-moderated the opening, the closing and the High level debate with Commissioner Nvracsics and deputy minister Van Rijn. "Rogier has shown that events can be more to the point, more entertaining and deliver more results! Goodbye boring panels and long speeches, hello interaction and straight forward questions!"

The Netherlands Vehicle Authority organized a conference to kick start their initiative to streamline car-data in the EU. I made sure the day was interactive and focused on getting commitment from participants.
"Despite being a very technical topic, Rogier managed to make the day as light as possible. He advised us in the design, and his methods worked in getting to the goals: getting commitment!"
In 2014 the European Greens held an open online primary to select the two leading faces in their election campaign, in which all Europeans over 16 were allowed to vote. I hosted the presentation of the candidates, and moderated debates in Athens, London and online. The format I introduced favoured style over substance. For some a little too unorthodox, but for most it was a breath of fresh air.

For Reed Business events I moderate events for health-care and governance "Rogier is a professional with authority in the audience, but gives people space to voice their opinions. Rogier keeps the balance in asking sharp questions, challenge and humor, without taking it to far." Ellen Kuerble, Reed Business Events

The province held a two day conference on youth participation which I hosted. I managed to bring the different parties together: the executive, council members, policymakers and young people.

For the union of vocational students I hosted the presentation of a report on educational quality to the Dutch minister for Education. Through careful design of format and set-up of the room I managed to create an informal setting in which students felt free to challenge the minister in an open debate.
