About Elsewine Rietveld

Elsewine is a former deer in headlights when it comes to making videos & speaking in public. She was so terrified to record her first video, that she walked straight out of the room where the camera was set up.


Over time, she has found an effective method on how to get comfortable on camera and is sharing techniques from her Confidence Creation Framework with you.


Since 2013 she has been training professionals to speak with confidence in conversations, presentations and on video.


She has worked with CEOs, managers and employees from among others KPMG, Afas, KLM, TU Delft, TNO, Deloitte, local governments, various law firms and close to a thousand business owners.


Her happy place is on top of the Swiss mountains, with nothing more than a chocolate bar and a bottle of water, watching the stunning view after a steep climb.
