Diederik has been a welcome speaker at many festivals, including Cannes Lions, Spikes Asia, Promax, LIA, and Adfest, to name but a few.

LIA is my favourite festival by far, and it has been immensely gratifying to present for and work with the amazing group of young creatives you had invited. To inspire the young is all we can aspire to do, and the feedback I have received by so many of them has been absolutely heartwarming. I was also warmly reminded of how many wonderful and loyal friends I have in the international creative community. I will happily fulfill Jury duty next time, as well as presenting for the young creatives again at Creative LIAisons.
