Howard Lettinga is on a mission: to create ripples of good and positivity on the sea of life. He thinks a combination of respect, humility and critical thinking together with good writing and presenting skills can build a better world. Howard helps people present their ideas with impact – to create those ripples.
The magic of language
As a child, Howard fell in love with the poetry and the magic of language. He became a published author at 11 years old as a winner of the New York Times Children’s poetry contest. That was the start of a life-long journey in writing, communication and presenting ideas.
Words that describe Howard: energy, humor, generosity, unshakable optimist. There are those who call him the Ultimate Communicator.
There are so many inspiring people. Voltaire, a father of The Enlightenment. Thomas Jefferson, who co-authored the American Declaration of Independence. Hunter S. Thompson, the great free-spirit and critical-thinking Gonzo journalist. And my biggest hero, Ada, my granddaughter born on 4 August 2020. She is one of the millions of heroes who will shape our future.
Howard loves to watch great communication happen
Howard has over 30 years’ experience as a corporate communications professional. He is also the curator and former senior speaker coach at TEDxVenlo. He loves working together with smart, ambitious people to find the ideas, stories, sentences and words that make a great presentation.
