Born and raised just outside Amsterdam, but with an ever present international focus. After completing an International Business Management study with an emphasis on marketing I decided to start my own business.
SeventeenThirty helps companies, organizations and governments to take a strategic approach to Social Media, focussing on human capital and process management.
I have a very positive approach to life and work and belive that this attitude helps to achieve goals and also have fun in the process.
This attitude also reflects in my talks and workshops, combined with a good sense of Dutch humor.
Im honest, direct and to the point, which might take a bit of getting used to for some people, but in the end benefits everybody.

Social Media Workshops
In order to get your staff to adopt Social Media, it is very important to make sure everybody has the necessary skills to do so. Social Media Workshops are designed to get all attendees up to par. This can be done in general or platform specific.
How to uses Social Media to make the difference
Social Media is great of course, but it has to become an integral part of the way your organization works. Setting up platforms is the easy bit, getting people excited and maintain focus is the real challenge. Ill show you how!
The possibilities with Social Media are endless. To get to a solid strategic base, management and boardmembers need to be completely on board and committed. In order to do so, a knowledge/brainstorm session is often the best way to get a solid foundation in place where the rest of the strategy can build upon.
