Who is Erika Van Tielen?
Erika was just 19 and still studying Communication Science at the Catholic University of Leuven when she was given the chance to join children’s channel Ketnet as a wrapper. Over 10 years later, she is a familiar face in the Flemish media landscape. For instance, she has been a presenter for VTM, travelled around the world for travel programme Vlaanderen Vakantieland and hosted various radio programmes for Qmusic and Studio Brussel. These days she is a fully fledged actor, in programmes such as Familie. She also features in commercials and writes about her life and parenting experiences on her blog, erikavantielen.be.
But presenting live on stage remains her biggest passion. Erika is always perfectly prepared and ensures a well-balanced mix between seriousness and spontaneity. “The better you know what you’re talking about, the better you can improvise; and that’s what I love. My ultimate goal is to make everything appear easy, so people think I am making things up as I go along.” <laughs>
The whole evening went very well and we were very pleased with how Erika Van Tielen managed the evening as presenter. It was a very pleasant experience, mainly because she was so open towards staff and friendly towards the company and management.

We have just completed a fantastic 2-day event, in which Erika Van Tielen did an admirable job as presenter. She has a very pleasant personality and was the ideal host! I am already looking forward to the next time we work together.
Erika was our host during an international event. She had prepared well and appeared to be very comfortable with the subject matter. Her natural flair and fluency on stage ensured the perfect presentation. The organisers, as well as our international guests, were delighted with Erika's performance as host. We would certainly recommend her to others.

Erika Van Tielen was the right presenter for the right occasion. Her presentation was perfect and contained nice, refreshing references to the various short contributions to the film. Just like artist Piet Peere, I was very pleased that we had selected Erika. Thank you for your help, and see you at the next event.
