Three challenges and a new business
I stopped touring in 2000, not so much because I wanted to put down my Maglite, but because clients approached me with challenging requests that appealed to my background as an industrial psychologist.
After a successful tour with Wadaiko Ichiro in 1996, Van Baasbank & Baggerman asked me to join them as their technical coordinator. Working with international companies seemed to be a challenge that fitted me like a glove. » read on about The launch of TOT
The heartbeat of TOT
The technological, organisational and events centre point. All interests on the same page. Clear proposals, practical interventions and bold actions: this is where the strength of TOT lies, as well as its core services.
The broad outlines and detail
The broad outlines are important, but the smallest details are too. Take a concert, for example. The musicians and the visitors must have a fantastic evening, which is only possible if the technology is scheduled properly. However, the ambience in the foyer, the cloakroom attendant’s smile and the ease of ordering on the website play just as important a role. » read on about Vision – The technological, organisational and events centre point
Buy new software and all your problems are a thing of the past; all your wishes are fulfilled. Every program demonstration promises this. But is it really true? Perfect applications do not exist, but optimal combinations of people, requirements and techniques do. How do you know whether a particular program is the most suitable one for your business? Do you really need that particular program, or do you already have something that can do the job and are simply unaware of it? And how will the change impact the organisation? TOT is an independent party that utilises a range of different programs and suppliers. TOT is looking forward to helping you. » read on about Applications
The world of culture revolves around performances and events. Just as much for theatres and concert auditoriums, as for event venues and museums. Under no circumstances should an auditorium be double-booked, or the technicians have a start time scheduled that is different from what the visitor hears at the box office.
This is why when a cultural organisation initiates automation event scheduling is often addressed first. Other internal business processes can also benefit, but often later. » read on about Event scheduling
An eye on communication
Communication is everything: in the world of culture, just as everywhere else. Yet it does not always happen on its own. Seemingly opposing interests, different cultures, new legislation and regulation or organisational growth are all potential areas of conflict or friction.
At TOT, Marijcke Voorsluijs combines her industrial psychology expertise with more than 20 years of work experience in the cultural sector. She has resolved many issues for her clients, either on her own or in collaboration with other specialists in her network. » read on about Project management
DeLaMar is a contemporary two-auditorium theatre (more than 1500 seats), a Grand Café and various foyers that are also suitable for events. An exceptional photo collection hangs in the foyers. Janine van den Ende purchased various works, but in particular commissioned five prominent Dutch art photographers with the theme of ’theatre’. Erwin Olaf, Viviane Sassen, Hans Eijkelboom, Cuny Janssen and Koos Breukel each provided their own interpretation of this theme. » read on about DeLaMar Theatre
Personal encounter with the (ab)normal
Museum Het Dolhuys wants to leave visitors with a positive and lasting impression, one that contributes to the de-stigmatisation of people with a psychiatric disorder. It does so by creating a personal encounter with the (ab)normal. In the museum you interactively experience the boundaries between lunacy and run of the mill, normal and abnormal. » read on about The Dolhuys Museum
A monument with an impressive history
With sky-high ogive arches and magnificent art treasures, the recently restored Pieterskerk in Leiden is an awe-inspiring building that boasts a fascinating history, making for an unforgettable setting for each and every event – whether a grand dinner, congress or exhibition in the sanctuary and the nave, a concert under the stained glass windows, or a private meeting in the seventeenth-century period room. » read on about Pieterskerk Leiden
