What clients are saying

There are people who change the course of your business and your personal life forever. Ianka is one of them. During a great workshop, she unraveled the secrets of presenting and storytelling. With the skill of a master storyteller, she showed us how to enthrall and convince an audience. But she showed us much more. She showed us that there can be a story and a storyteller in each of us. She is the guide to effectively communicating that message. Thanks to her expertise and knowledge, the spotlight of attention swings in your direction and you can hear a pin drop when you speak. She does that in her unique and infectious way. If your company REALLY has something to say? Then you should definitely listen to this young lady. .... book now... it's that simple

If you have the instrument, Ianka Fleerackers will teach you how to play the stars of heaven. An absolute authority, the Queen of Speech.

Too often I speak at events where the CEO has a great message that is unfortunately lost in a superficial presentation. Being good in management also means being good in public speaking. You can learn how to manage. You can learn how to be a good speaker.. I have seen what Ianka can do with our Nexxworks Bootcampers in just a few hours. Take your time. Not a few hours. The time you need to find your own voice, your own key, your own attitude, your own format, and story.

Speaking with impact is not only useful when you have to give a presentation or give a speech. It is also particularly useful during networking or in daily business (but also other) contacts.It is not an art that is reserved for only a few, anyone who is open to it can learn it. One of the rare ideal teachers in our language area is Ianka Fleerackers.

Training at Thought Leaders Academy with ianka is a great way to speak regularly and to be more aware of it. You always receive honest feedback, which helps to continue working on my keynote, for example. I find it very inspiring, and it is always a fun moment. Ideal for people who have to speak regularly in front of a group. The small group makes it quick and easy to try things out.

"Hello, I am Xaveer and I am an introvert." This was my first sentence in the Thought Leaders Academy of ianka fleerackers. A few months later I gave my first 'TED talk'.

A good speech is not what it looks like, but what it does to us. Thank you ianka, for being my speaking mentor.

Ianka is an inspiring coach and expert who, thanks to her many years of experience, can very quickly make an analysis of your story and encourages you to look for new insertions by offering small, but important, adjustments.

“My goal was to use my public speaking skills for moderating and presenting events. This from both a professional and a personal perspective. The Thought Leaders Academy, therefore, seemed the appropriate platform for me to continue working on this. My experience is very positive in the sense that you get a platform to practice unabashedly and in addition, you get concrete tools to work on content, the structure of your story. I realize that preparation and writing out your texts are extremely important. In the third session, I did this for the first time and you feel the inner peace at the start of your presentation. After the last session, I came home and enthusiastically told my wife about the session and the fact that this is really something that gives me energy, satisfaction, and peace.

Peter van de Veire
Director at Form TS

I have experienced the public speaking training very positively. I especially wanted to get inside tips for better storytelling. And I got it. The training was not only educational, but it was also fun! I can recommend Thought Leaders Academy and working with ianka to anyone who - just like me - wants to give a keynote or presentation where storytelling is central. ”

Straightforward feedback, clear and personal. More boom/boom than bla bla. Applied and relevant towards quickly building up speaker skills.

Thijs Van De Broek

The Speakers Club is an ideal way to challenge yourself to grow as a speaker so that it does not stop with good intentions. The great exercises, the supportive feedback, and the pleasant atmosphere give you more confidence. And occasionally you discover that you can do more than you thought. I was very happy with the end result. I will definitely record TED talks. Thanks.

Informative, not just "an education" but a mega educational way to improve Public Speaking.

Lien Debuck
VP Finance at In The Pocket

I did more than expected. Everything went according to a very practical "just do" mentality. Just stand in front and start, it sounds worse than it really turned out to be.

Thought leaders Academy doesn't give you the standard "10 steps to a good keynote" but very focused & personal feedback. We had to come out of our comfort zone every session, but always in a fun, exciting way without it becoming uncomfortable.

Remi Shoenmakers
Strategist bij In The Pocket

Thought Leaders Academy held inhouse public speaking sessions. I didn't know what to expect, but I am very satisfied. Practical and useful tips that already gave me a clear sense of progress in a small number of sessions.

Simon Raes

Firm but fair. The training was a very confronting journey. Although I suspected what my soft points were, this came up so loud during the talks that you could not help but address them. The mirror is hard but necessary. In a professional context, the focus is often only on the content, while the way you deliver the content lingers longer.

Isabelle Pacquée
Team Lead at Foreach (web developing company)

The Thought Leaders Academy has taught me a great deal about the importance of postural use of voice when giving a speech. I also learned to understand how important it is to make the effort to adequately prepare your talk. There is still work to be done, but the Thought Leaders Academy has given me the hook and points for attention to take my presentation skills to a higher level.
