I count my blessings. 

I have had the opportunity and privilege to work in marketing and communication for almost 25 years.
I have worked in agencies, start-ups and marketing teams in the Benelux. I have learned from truly inspiring people and worked on amazing projects. 


Today I am an all-round freelance marketing and communication expert through my company ANNO77 bv. Nothing gives me more energy than help companies - big and small - to create or finetune the storytelling, the positioning and brand identity.  I have the skills (strategy, research, copywriting) and I know the tools (ATL, digital, content, production) to make it all happen.
