Collapse summary

Vion

Ronald Lotgerink CEO


“Manuel’s dynamic presence and in-depth knowledge of the industry, combined with his language skills, were excellent during his moderation of our management meeting in September 2018. His presenting skills focus the audience on what's next and he has the gift to repeat and summarize the message for a small or larger audience. Thanks to his preparations in a short time frame he is comfortable to do an interview, comment or get into dialogue with the speakers, while making a smooth transition to the next keynote. An excellent performance!”


BFSE

Andrey Gonta

“Manuel Adamini is very dynamic, engaging and professional speaker. We were very lucky to have him on our Ukrainian Climate Finance Forum 2017 and at the Kyiv International Economic Forum. In fact, he is one of the best speakers I've ever heard or seen. Our audience was actively engaged throughout a long session, due to Manuel’s interactive presentation and his dynamic speaking ability. His speech about the challenge of climate change was rated by a full 97% of our audience as "very good to excellent". We would be very happy to invite him back to our conferences in the future.”


Obvion Hypotheken

Max Bronzwaer

“Gripping, depressing and inspiring: Such is the compelling and impressive presentation that Manuel Adamini gave to Obvion’s green deal team. Combining in-depth knowledge with presentation skills, Manuel delivered a message that is gripping in presenting the inconvenient facts, developments and forecasts; that is depressing in drawing out the daunting consequences if humanity fails to act appropriately in the little time that is left to do so; and that is also inspiring, painting the possibilities and opportunities that we still have for the climate transition and the green financing needed for that. An inspiring presentation motivating and mobilising people to act in order to save the future of our planet.”


Nyenrode Business University

prof. dr. André Nijhof

“Manuel inspired the students in the International MBA programme at Nyenrode. His speech was not only thought-provoking, but it encouraged the students to take action. A great example of what we call ‘the most important work today is both deeply personal and highly systemic’“.
