Marc Lammers uses his background of many years as a top-level field hockey coach and his innovative practices to engage audiences on topics relating to diversity, leadership, and team building.
Although acclaimed as a hockey coach, Marc’s innovative approach saw him bring video glasses, new, improved hockey sticks, heart rate monitors, analysis software, and even earphones, to the game.
Marc Lammers, who played in five internationals, is more commonly known as a coach. It was in this capacity that he prepared the Dutch women’s team for over 280 international matches.
Before this, however, he coached the Spanish team, taking them from the twentieth to the fourth place in the world’s ranking list at the Sydney Olympic Games of 2000.
From there, Marc went on to coach the Belgium national men’s team. His efforts saw the team come first in the Hockey World League in 2012, and win a silver medal at the European Championship in 2013. Belgium won the Olympic Gold in Tokyo in 2021, which is amazing and remarkable for a country with only a population of only 40,000 people.
His innovations in the game of hockey led to a verb being named after him: Lammering.
Marc is also an accomplished writer. He has authored three books: YES! Een Crises Top Coaches (YES! One Crises Top Coaches), Coachen do je samen (Coaching is a team effort), and Flow Van Goed Naar Goud (Flow From Good To Gold).
Marc has a clear vision pertaining to coaching, and he carries this over to his audiences by means of his innovating, interactive, and lively style of speaking. His affiliation with ARPA Learn Institute allows him to bring across his experiences geared towards a business environment. Whilst field hockey has been Marc’s background, his high-performance coaching methodology and innovation is applicable to all organisations seeking to go from ‘Good to Gold’.
