What is a Stage Hero?

Being a hero is about using your gift to help others. Being a Stage Hero is about sharing that gift in the form of an inspiring talk, a moving speech or a great business presentation. 

My name is Maja and I founded Stage Heroes because I see so much hidden talent. People who stay invisible because they are not able to present themselves or their ideas. It is my mission to help them find their inner Stage Hero and so that they can make a lasting impact.

Working with Stage Heroes means committing to stepping up your public speaking game. It means letting go of playing small and getting ready to make a lasting impact on others. 

Are you ready?

“I took so much from it! And not only do I feel a lot more confident in myself as a speaker now, but I also love the idea of being on stage, as opposed to freaking out about it.”

Stage Heroes testimonial David Wauters PVH Presentation coaching_speaking in public

“I am finally learning to speak as I was meant to speak. Unleashing the power of expressing myself authentically rather than trying to imitate, through digging deep within. This is exactly what I wanted and what I am now getting from Stage Heroes!”

What others say about us

“Practical. Inspiring. Breaking barriers.”

Tommy Hilfiger EuropeParticipant of presentation training

“Met praktische tips, goed gedoseerde theorie en aansprekende oefeningen is Margreet uitstekend in staat op een aansprekende wijze kennis over te dragen.
Een aanrader!”

Rabobank RidderkerkJos van 't Noordende

“Werken aan mezelf met Margreet was echt een feestje! Haar spontaniteit, openheid en diepere motivatie om mij en mijn verhaal te begrijpen hebben me geholpen om een schitterende pitch neer te zetten. ”

In Between CafeAdriaan Kodde

“New aspects to "traditional training"; tips and tricks to bring a "story" across as interesting, engaging and fun for the audience (even on "dry" topics)”

PVH EuropeParticipant of presentation training

“Het effect gaat verder dan alleen de pitch, je leert in korte tijd zoveel over jezelf dat ik ook tijdens een presentatie bij een klant merk dat ik veel zekerder ben over hoe ik overkom en ook daar een betere indruk achterlaat.”

LivingStatsRachel Gerads

“De opzet was vlot, dynamisch en veilig. Ook mensen die moeite hadden met spreken voor een groep, wist ze mee te laten gaan en vele malen hun pitch herhalen. Net zolang tot deze met overtuiging kon worden overgebracht. Een aanrader!”

OrdinaSanne Pasveer

“I am very impressed by the quality of her training and the positive energy that she brings into the room. This training completely nails the important subject of how one comes across to clients and candidates and how this can have a major impact.”

Vibe GroupEgbert van Beurden

“ Maja manages to make everyone feel they are equal. That everyone has both strengths and areas to improve, that we all have a unique style, and that no one is better than another. That takes the fear away and gives confidence. ”

“Margreet is incredibly inspiring and really knows how to connect. She gave us one of the best days we have ever had as a team”

Tommy Hilfiger EuropeParticipant of presentation training

“The trainer was awesome. This is the type of training that everyone will get benefit from but it worked so well as she connected us all as a group. Everyone opened up and this was really down to her encouraging nature and style.”

Calvin Klein EuropeParticipant of presentation training

“Heel professioneel, met veel humor en liefde. Ik kan het iedereen aanraden! ”

Love your BodyElisa Schipper

“I loved every second of the workshop. Margreet brings so much knowledge and experience that it becomes easy to formulate an authentic pitch.”

CoachHennia Cheour

“Very personal and practical training, with tools that you can clearly apply to your working life”

Participant of storytelling trainingPVH Europe

“Teksten herschrijven, ademhaling, visualisaties, methodes om mijn tekst te leren,... Ze kunnen het allemaal. En ze kunnen het ook nog eens geweldig uitleggen. Ik ben intens dankbaar en denk oprecht dat mijn TEDtalk niet zo goed gegaan zou jullie.”

Lily van BelleTEDxWomen spreker

If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time – a tremendous whack.

Winston Churchill

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Maya Angelou

Pretend that every single person you meet has a sign around his or her neck that says, ‘Make me feel important.’ Not only will you succeed in sales, you will succeed in life.

Mary Kay Ash

"Be a voice, not an echo"

Albert Einstein

"All great speakers were bad speakers at first"

Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Make sure you have finished speaking before your audience has finished listening"

Dorothy Sarnoff

"There are only two types of speakers in the world. 1. the nervous and 2. the liars"

Mark Twain

"No one ever complains about a speech being too short!"
