Ilka Groenewold is your choice for your event - whether it's a trade fair, congress, panel discussion, awards ceremony, summit, event or TV production. The Hamburg native is one of Germany's most sought-after event presenters and can look back on over 1,800 live moderations. In addition to her work on stage, Ilka Groenewold works for the Hamburg TV station and coaches both companies and individuals in the areas of rhetoric and stage presence. She began her career in 2001 at VIVA, where the station hired her to host a programme. With her charming, empathetic and at the same time sporty manner, she manages to captivate the audience. It is therefore not surprising that major DAX companies such as Mercedes Benz have been successfully organising events worldwide with Ilka Groenewold since 2012. See for yourself - book Ilka Groenewold for your event. In German, English or in the best Frisian dialect. And optionally with singing! Your event is guaranteed to be a success!


"The art of presenting is to keep the common thread of an event in your hand so that individual sections of a show become a well-rounded whole," says the presenter. "And of course: capturing the audience's attention!" Presenter Ilka Groenewold achieves this with a unique blend of charm, humour, eloquence, likeability, seriousness, freshness, authenticity and professionalism, which simply goes down extremely well with both young and old. Ilka's strengths include familiarising herself with a wide range of topics.

"Once again a big thank you, it really was a great presentation at the opening of the Technology Centre for Vehicle Safety in Sindelfingen.

CORPORATE PROTOCOL & EVENTS, DAIMLER AG


"Her voice sounded fascinating from the very first call. And indeed, the lady perfectly complemented our congress with a mixture of charm, Hanseatic humour and perfect preparation. There's no question that we immediately booked this tough bundle of energy again for 2018. Thank you very much for your professional work. We look forward to working with her again." MARKETING MANAGER, STARFACE GMBH
