At Houthoff, we like to see the silver lining in every precarious situation. Even in these challenging times, we believe we can offer you more than just our legal services.

In the Netherlands, many of our events are held at the theatre of our friends from Dutch National Opera & Ballet (NO&B) in Amsterdam.

There are many parallels between the world-renowned NO&B and Houthoff. We believe the knowledge and expertise that NO&B leaders use to inspire, motivate and energise others align with the values we share in corporate leadership. Together with NO&B, we have created a series of masterclasses to help with the challenges that come with remote working.


Good leadership requires adaptability; every situation asks for a different approach. Yet one essential element in leadership is always important: focus. Matthew Rowe, music director of Dutch National Ballet and principal conductor of Dutch Ballet Orchestra, shares his leadership technique and experience to successfully lead his team through the crisis.

Leadership Masterclass | Collaboration

If the corona crisis teaches us anything, it is the value of working together. By talking and exchanging ideas with others, we can support and learn from one another. Ted Brandsen, director of Dutch National Ballet, and Lisette Heemskerk, commercial director of Dutch National Opera & Ballet, share their most important lessons on successful collaboration.


Days spent on back-to-back online meetings make you increasingly dependent on your voice. Learn more about how to use body language and tone of voice to create engagement and maximum impact. This masterclass is led by Ching-Lien Wu, artistic director, and Lorenzo Viotti, chief conductor at the National Opera.
