Let me help you with your media ambitions!

Media strategist & digital expert

Looking for a futureproof audio, video or OTT strategy? A holistic media strategy? Or rather a hybrid content approach? With my 25 years of experience in creating and implementing successful media strategies I can help you!

  • Due to my holistic approach I create strategies that really connect with your whole organisation, product or service. Always aiming for maximisation of your ambitions and business revenues.

    My method is no-nonsense, efficient and effective with a proven quicker lead time. I always deliver the best, holistic media solution that fits your culture.

    Recently I worked for:
    * Voetbal International
    * the content and videostrategy of Pepr
  • * the audiostrategy for KRO-NCRV – together we improved the connection between lineair and on demand audio content and outlined the consumer centric approach;
    * the digital marketing strategy for SFTJO.nl – together we made a conversion and digital marketing plan to maximise subscriptions on this mental health platform;
    * the crossnavigation strategy for NPO 1 – together we created and implemented a crossnavigation strategy. As a result younger and more diverse audiences are now watching NPO 1 on television and NPOStart and they move more easily within the NPO mediamix.
    * OTT-strategies for international vod-platforms – business cases, strategy for cutting churn etc.
  • Furthermore I worked on media, digital and content strategies for: Media.Monks, NPO Klassiek, Dutch Basketball League, Radio 538, Radio 3FM and NPO.

Interim executive

Need a lead in your (digital) transformation project, an interim Officer, or a professional that implements your strategy? With my experience in media executive roles like Digital Officer, Creative Officer, Marketing Officer and Channel Manager I can help you realise your ambitions.

  • During my media career I have built up a track record of successful senior executive roles within the sport, media and sports industry. My strong suit is that I translate a strategy to a practical plan, get all stakeholders and teams on board to implement your transformation together in the most perfect way.
    My approach for digital transformations is first of all getting familiar with the current status. With a so called Quickscan I map out the current situation. Match it with your ambitions. And after that creating a implementation plan that fits your team, internal expertise and culture. Together we going through all steps to finally reach the KPI’s set.

    Recently I worked on:
    * digital transformation Helden Magazine – after rolling out a Quickscan I created a digital strategy to broaden their business model with a new mediamix and revenue streams;
  • * the marketing transformation of 24i – due to Covid-19 it was difficult for 24i to connect with their potential clients as event marketing was their most important tool. Due to my digital marketing plan they re-connected with their clients and are flourishing at the moment;
  • * the digital transformation of Q-dance – implementing an ID & subscription system for their fans. Result is that Q-dance is not only connected with their fanbase in the Benelux, but they are now digitally connected with their global fans. Consequently: profiting from a range of new revenue streams and also able to organise events in new countries with huge, new fanbases.

    Furthermore I was responsible for digital transformations of Trust, TrustxGaming, AT5, NH, Radio 538, WNL and NPO.

I am a member of several supervisory & advisory boards.

Cobra Museum

Eurosonic Noorderslag

Since January 2024 I am a member of the supervisory board of Eursonic Noorderslag with Media as speciality.

ESNS (Eurosonic Noorderslag) is a non-profit organisation and independent platform dedicated to the promotion and discovery of new European and Dutch music.

Each January, ESNS showcases 350 emerging European artists to over 40,000 visitors. The festival and conference attract over 4,000 music industry professionals, including 400 international festivals. 

Cobra Museum

Cobra Museum
(2022-2023)

From October 2022 till October 2023 I was a (voluntarily) general member of the supervisory board of Cobra Museum with digital as speciality.

The Cobra Museum of Modern Art Amstelveen focuses on the art and ideas of the Cobra movement. Cobra is part of the canon of art history, but the ‘spirit’ of Cobra is still very much alive.

An alternative culture, based on international solidarity and creativity, is perhaps more relevant than ever in the world we live in today. The Cobra Museum therefore actively links the collection and history of Cobra to contemporary artists, modern art movements and current affairs.

Between 2010 and 2013 I was a (voluntarily) member of the Advisory Board of the start up 22tracks with international expansion as speciality.

Over the years 22tracks worked with an incredible roster of curators, won multiple awards, hosted numerous events and even their own festival. 22tracks.com and apps gave millions of music lovers in Amsterdam, Brussels, London, Paris, and the rest of the world a chance to hear the best new music.
