Jan van Betten, Founder Nudge Global Impact Challenge:
"Martijn Lampert delivered the keynote speech at the 9th Nudge Global Impact Summit at the Peace Palace in The Hague. Based on his impressive global research he identified the changemakers who can make the difference in realizing the Sustainable Development Goals. Martijn’s message not only resonated strongly with the young changemakers and activists in the room but also with the participating CEO’s and board members. He revealed the movement, struggles, and transition that they are all part of. I would definitely recommend having Martijn as a speaker if you want to be inspired and find out which audiences to mobilize and how to mobilize them for your cause."
