TAILOR-MADE speeches


`Fabulous Facts and Amazing Anecdotes´, the most popular of the offered presentations, is a unique mixture of a lecture and a pub quiz, developed by Marko and ideal for both companies and groups.

On a specific subject, provided by the client, Marko puts together a program in which participants share their factual knowledge and personal anecdotes in a light-hearted quiz. In answering the questions, wit and originality are more important than being right or wrong.

'Fabulous Facts' is interactive and educational. Its social character makes it highly suitable for company trainings, introductory rounds, network events and staff outings. The quiz can be held at various locations.




Regularly, Marko Kassenaar gives keynote speeches at exhibitions and presentations at special events.

April 2018, Marko opened the exhibition 'On Prescription', on 500 years of medical science, in Rijksmuseum Boerhaave in Leiden, The Netherlands.

He also acted as a speaker for ABN AMRO Bank during the visit of the Patrons of BOZAR Art Centre (Brussels) to the bank´s art collection. Furthermore, he acted as a host at various special receptions at the Rijksmuseum, The Netherlands´ national museum.
