It’s time to meet Robert Hoogenboom who is in charge of logistics & guest liaison for TEDx Maastricht.

So Robert, what gets you out of bed in the morning?
My dog. Every morning. 7 days a week. 52 weeks a year. Since I have her sleeping in has become just a distant memory…

What drew you towards TEDx Maastricht?
I felt –and feel- that a TEDx event is a must-have for a city like Maastricht with its international ambitions.

What can we wake you up for…
Chocolatecake! Or limoncello. Or both.

What is your role in the TEDX Team?
Started in the communications team, then moved to organizing the pitch nights and general logistics and guest liaison at our main event.

What is your favourite part of being a TEDx Maastricht team member?
I get to hang out with awesome, smart & funny people: teammembers, volunteers, audience and of course our speakers.
