Speaker, Trainer & Coach

I use my interpersonal skills to help people to regain control over their business, profession, income, and lives by sharing my expertise about change, innovation, technology, science, and entrepreneurship. I feel very passionate to share my stories, knowledge and experiences with others to elevate them and help them grow. When I found that my insights were indeed valuable to others, it felt that I had finally found my purpose in life; speaking, training, counseling, coaching and mentoring. It started with small groups at vocational seminars and in-company training sessions. As my reputation grew I received an ever increasing number of invitations to speak at bigger events. Today, I am fortunate to be able to make a living speaking and training at my own events as well as the events of others.

Good teaching, in essence, is the art of trying to get an idea from your head into another person’s head without causing a catastrophe.
— Alain De Botton

Innovation & Change

With more than 30 years experience managing, controlling, counseling, mentoring, coaching and directing projects, programs, organizational change, and portfolios of change, innovation and R&D, in over 25 companies, I have learned valuable lessons. I love to share these lessons in an anecdotal and practical manner.

Wealth & Financial Planning

Banks need bailing out, governments keep printing fiat money, pension funds are in trouble as well, the real estate markets are volatile, the middle class is shrinking, and when you lose your job you'll soon find out that your house is not an asset. Your financial future is in dire straits and you don't know what to do about it? Then this is for you: becoming financially independent is actually quite easy; all it takes is drive, discipline and knowledge. You should be investing in assets that appreciate in value, generate cash flow and come with tax-benefits. And if you are smart, you can avoid using your own money to acquire them. 

At Dennis van der Spoel Productions we organize events for individuals wanting to become an investor. Ranging from one-day compact seminars to 3-day high value masterclasses, we cover investing in real estate, fine art, precious metals, jewelry, gemstones, paper assets, forex and antiques. RAGS-2-RICHES: Learn About Money, Gold, and Real Estate to Achieve a Wealthy and Healthy life and Become Happy and Whole.


Personal Growth

Aspiring entrepreneurs, investors, leaders, professionals and specialists often find that a higher rank or degree doesn't automatically translate into success. While seasoned managers and entrepreneurs often find loneliness at the top, where the lack of feedback hampers personal growth. People today are no longer impressed or convinced solely by hierarchy, certificates or diplomas. What you bring to the table as a person matters more than the role you are hired to play. To be effective, personal growth must be a constant priority. INFLUENCE-4 IMPACT: Learn How to Use Levers and Principals of Persuasion to Rally People Behind Your Cause, So You Can Leverage Other People’s Time, Money, and Assets.
