And why trust is the solution

Hermina takes you as a listener into the world of research on human behavior in a playful and approachable way. Whether it is about motivation, communication or leadership, again and again she knows how to convey a number of findings from scientific research in a clear and accessible way to her audience. Larded with examples taken from life, as well as experiences from her personal life. She does not shy away from critical questions and reservations from her audience and succeeds in allowing everyone to find their own value through her connecting way of communicating.


Frank Vander Sijpe, Director HR Trends & Insights

ABC sounds good. But the power of the terms goes much further. Making ABC a daily reality in your leadership practice is less obvious for some of us. With her powerful combination of scientific foundation and to-the-point examples, Hermina inspired the HR team to make our supportive leadership initiatives - and building a culture of trust - even more focused and meaningful.


Jan Van Acoleyen, Chief Human Resources

I was looking last-minute for a worthy speaker for a webinar around motivation so I ended up with Hermina. She exceeded my expectations. Her pragmatic and flexible approach made for a very well prepared presentation. Moreover, she delivered her science-based keynote in a very pleasant, professional manner. And all that in a short period of time. Hermina is highly recommended if you are looking for a specialist in motivation.


Toon Schouteden, Product Manager

Engagement, motivation ... and how is this linked to well being, performance and retention? Hermina succeeds in communicating recent scientific research in an insightful way. She provokes thought and provides tools to work with this using the ABC method. The great thing is that this can be used in very different target groups. Definitely something we want to explore further.

Ingrid Dierckx, HR director Supply Chain

Hermina is a driven and enthusiastic lady and speaks straight from the heart. With her passion for the ZDT, how motivation works, she easily takes the whole room with her. Her insights are scientifically based and supplemented with numerous examples from business, non-profit and her private life. Motivating your children in the right way is no easy task either. This makes her keynotes very recognizable, directly applicable and inspiring. Hermina makes sure that the ABC of motivation sticks and gives concrete tools that you yourself (as a manager, HR manager, mother or father) can get to work with.
