What clients say

”Together with two colleagues and the location director, we followed a series of media training sessions with Christine. Almere Jungle, part of Nieuwland WTZ, was experiencing strong growth. There were also plans for further expansion. With those future plans and the fact that we were increasingly approached by the media, media training was desired. Important issues were, for example, how do you present yourself and the company to the medium and how do you deal with the media in crisis situations. It was a pleasant mix of education and role plays where we could immediately put the tips and tricks into practice and also received good feedback from Christine and each other. In addition, we jointly created a Q&A which is still a lively document that is being applied. As soon as the media comes into the picture, the tips that we received during the training pop up again. Highly recommended!”

“As director and founder of Blink, I often struggled with wanting to tell too much out of enthusiasm, so that the core of my message was lost. Christine gave me concrete tips in her media training to be much more concise and clearer in my message. In addition, Christine helped us with the PR for ‘Het nieuwe lezen’, an initiative with which we call for a radically different approach to reading at school. The launch campaign was a great success and an inspiring example of how we will now set up PR in-house at Blink. Christine helps us in this process. I think that is a special quality: that an external party does not try to hold on to you for as long as possible, but is explicitly aimed on making us independent as soon as possible.”

“We asked Christine to be moderator for the plenary part of our online network meeting on sustainable tourism to France. The purpose of the meeting was to bring our French partners into contact with Dutch travel professionals. Christine came up with ideas for the content of the program and she helped us with the implementation. The session went smoothly, relaxed and very structured thanks to Christine. We experienced the cooperation with Christine as very pleasant.”

“As a publisher, we offer a complete range for various secondary vocational and higher professional education courses. We want to take our business a step further and have asked Christine to help us realize our goals. She conducted an external analysis and provided insight into trends and market developments, and our position in relation to the competition. Together with Christine, we have linked the most important opportunities and threats to our strengths and weaknesses. This identified strategic priorities, which form the basis for our 5-year plan. It was an inspiring journey that Christine took us on. With her enthusiasm and structured approach, she put us on the right path with a clear goal in mind.”

“CONO Kaasmakers, a small farmers’ cooperative known for the Beemster cheese brand. With a cheese factory, in the Beemster polder, where climate-neutral cheese is made. The farmers and cheese makers have had the ambition to make the tastiest and most sustainable cheese for more than a hundred years. The taste and quality are the highest priority. A few years ago we asked Christine to support our Beemster brand in particular with public relations in an innovative way. Not only in the traditional way, but also contemporary.

We do have other brands, for which Christine is a great sparring partner too. She immerses herself in our subject matter and provides valuable advice.”
