I am convinced that focusing on enthusiasm and flow has a positive impact on the way we interact with each other. It has consequences for the way we run organisations and how we organise society. My presentations, workshops and training courses are a reflection of the ideas in my books. My mission is accomplished if the audience walks out with plenty of energy and useful ideas to work with.

My presentations cover the following subjects

  • The dynamics of enthusiasm: Flame, Flow & Flood
  • Digital Well-being: On being Healthy, Productive, and Happy in a Digital Age.
  • Customer centricity, customer enthusiasm and superpromoters
  • Employee motivation, flow and the internal dynamics of enthusiasm
  • Storytelling & the dynamics of enthusiasm

My presentations contain very little text – mainly images, videos, case studies, practical guidelines and inspiring examples from sport, music and business. Here you can see an impression of a presentation ‘Opening Social Media Week Rotterdam’. They are also offered online, in a webinar format. Feel free to ask for a verbal explanation or request a quotation without obligation via the contact form. I generally respond within one working day.


“Since your workshop on Storytelling, enthusiasm has found a place in our hearts. Your generosity to use your storytelling workshop and pass it on to all our employees is a gift. One of our most valued workshops. For me, enthusiasm is the driving force for real success.”

Gerard Pieterse, Director People Development at Canon EMEA

“Rijn Vogelaar made my day. He is an enthusiastic speaker that tells about the consequences of negativity in our society and what we can do to turn the tide. Well, listening to mister enthusiasm himself is the first step towards a more constructive society as far as I am concerned.”

Anke van Dalfsen-Driessen, MarCom professional

“The time flew by. Fascinating and fun presentation! ”

Rijn was the main speaker at our conference! The theme was: “The power of enthusiasm”.

Our target group for the congress was the entire spectrum of workers in the dental practice. From dentist to assistant, around 300 people in total. He also provided a workshop at our conference in 2018. This was based on his book “Fighting Negativity”. On both events he scored very high in the evaluations. A performance by Rijn has a very positive impact. There is a good balance between content and relaxation (humor, music). In this way he is able  to connect to all levels of his audience. In addition, Rijn is a flexible and relaxed person to work with. And of course he puts his believe in the ‘dynamics of enthusiasm’ into practice. By the way, the extra investment in his side kick, the guitarist James Whelligan, is definitely worth it!

Anne-Pieter van Riet, owner of the Dental Dental Academy

“Just attended a presentation by Rijn Vogelaar about customer focus, enthusiasm and NPS. I must say that I have always been critical about the NPS system but Rijn brilliantly extracts the essence of the theory and builds it up from there. Focus on the intended result and not on the method or system. Positivity and enthusiasm is the key! ”

Joost Geurts, Rabobank, on Linkedin

“Employee engagement is much more than just satisfaction or dissatisfaction. It is about pleasure, feeling safe and supported and being challenged on your strengths. About constant feedback and most importantly, having a higher purpose. Last Friday Mr. Rijn Vogelaar explained to our Management Team all about the Enthusiasm Theory and the “Flame”, Flow and Flood. “An eye opener! Facilitating “The Flow” – in my opinion – should be every manager’s objective. ”

Lotte Mastwijk, LC Packaging, on LinkedIn

“This afternoon I attended a theater lecture at Rijn Vogelaar. Super motivated – and of course bouncing with enthusiasm – I left the theater an hour and a half later.

Ellen Broekhuizen on LinkedIn

“The event on Customer Experience, NPS, Touchpoints was very interesting… but for me keynote speaker, Rijn Vogelaar, was the highlight of the day. As I was the only Flemish participant out of 250, I didn’t know him, but from now on I’m a fan. I have three extra books to read! ”

Podcast with Joe Sejean

Engagement expert Joe Sejean interviewed me on the meaning of enthusiasm. We had a deep discussion on the role it plays in customer centricity and employee motivation, but also in life itself.

Dynamics of Enthusiasm

Summary and step-by-step plan.


On a regular basis I share the stage with musicians or other speakers. You can find a description of some of these co-presentations below.

Co-presentation with James Whelligan on enthusiasm and live music

Musicians experience enthusiasm on different levels. They allow themselves to be inspired, achieve flow with other musicians and if they are lucky, stand before an ecstatic crowd from time to time. Companies can learn a great deal from these dynamics. James Whelligan is a singer-songwriter and frontman of Annexe the Moon. In our presentations, James demonstrates enthusiasm from the perspective of a musician. Not just by talking about it, but also by performing live!

A link to a trailer of a co-presentation with James Whelligan:

If he receives sufficient notice, Jamie is happy to come from London to provide the musical accompaniment and give his perspective as a musician.
