About our guest

In 1998  after giving some lectures convinced by his close friend Ruth Vermeij, Maximilian let go of his commercial years in advertising.  Soon from a communication specialist in advertising, he turns into a communication specialist in dance, a performance coach who loves finding the strengths that lie in the couples he works with. Having gathered more experience, he decides to put his knowledge into books to help dancers communicate better and find ways of relieving the stress and coping with it especially during competition times.
