Rick van der Kleij
Debate moderator, Masters in Moderation
In 2013 the Dutch meeting industry awarded Rick as the Most Talented Moderator of the Netherlands. A business ethicist by training, an entrepreneur by trade and a political geek at heart, he is driven to help companies thrive in their ever-more demanding societies. So he helps to engage stakeholders with sustainability issues worldwide, no matter how complex or controversial. For this purpose, he has moderated hundreds of interactive meetings such as conferences and debates with participants from all industries, disciplines and cultures — from hackathons to C-suites, from the Dutch polder to the Saudi desert. Rick lives in The Hague where he enjoys the beach with his wife Masooma and son Ilias.
