Online Marketing Director

Peter is an online marketeer in heart and soul. He loves to organise events, in truth he would rather not do anything else the entire day than to coordinate, inspire and be inspired. He’s a big fan of Ted & TedX as the knowledge and networking it offers add greatly to the development of you as a human being.

Iulia Romana Pop

Online Marketing Director

Iulia is an Erasmus+ student at Windesheim University and a TEDx enthusiast. During her short stay in Zwolle she would like to discover more about the Dutch people and their culture. She is passionate about social media, traveling and innovation. If you happen to talk to her in Dutch at the event, she might not always be able to reply – but you’ll surely hear a proper pronunciation of  ‘gezellig’.
