My way of working is fun. It gives you a digital mind-set fast and lots of positive energy

As digital marcom expert, founder of We love communities and co-founder of IncludeNow. and WomenTalkTech, I’ve noticed that a lot of companies have difficulties to successfully leverage communities in order to achieve, maintain and grow their business. They just don’t know how to do it. I am convinced communities are needed for the creative industry to stay relevant. Communities strengthen us. Therefore I am writing a book about the power of communities. To help others to start and activate a successful community to create a positive impact and grow their business. Besides that, as a digital strategist and consultant, I am helping directors with their digital transformation.

People around me say that I am energetic, inspiring and decisive. I am not afraid to think outside of the conventional box and am creative in problem-solving. I also am reliable, emphatic and a connector. Other than my work, I like to ride a motorbike, dance and kickbox. Kickboxing has unexpectedly taught me a lot about myself: how I react to others, what my strategy is and how I can push my boundaries without going past them. “Out of your comfort zone is where the magic begins”.

With 18 years of experience in ‘digital’, I am very familiar with the digital ecosystem, digital trends and discruptive technology. I work, or used to work, for among others, KLM, Heineken, RTL, Peugeot, Nationale Postcode Loterij, Weborama and Schiphol. As a freelance digital strategist, I enjoy transferring that knowledge in the form of 1:1 coaching of members of upper management and in strategy assignments. My specialty is explaining difficult innovative technology in everyday English. I have a special preference to work for companies that apply Corporate Social Responsibility.
