Who is Bert Hagendoorn?

I am proud to be recognized as Amsterdam’s leading brand positioning and communication strategy adviser, working mainly with creative and digital agencies. I help creative agencies with my six-step plan for positioning and communication strategy, workshops and coaching sessions. This gives them focus, direction, strategy, a sharper story, better visibility and ultimately more business. I work for the leading agencies in Amsterdam and have assisted many of these with their growth strategy. 

Also, I am the founder of Dutch Digital Design, part of Dutch Digital Agencies (DDA). We showcase the very best digital work from Dutch digital designers and agencies, and widely publicize the Dutch design mentality behind it - via publications, press, social media and events inside and outside the Netherlands.

My network is as large as it is varied - I love bringing organizations, agencies and individuals together. I am co-initiator of Dutch creative trade missions such as the ‘Embassy of Dutch Creativity’ during Cannes Lions and organize events such as ‘Digital Dinner Amsterdam’. I’m an advisory board member at the Dutch Design Week, moderator of creative events and jury member of many creative awards. Also I support graffiti and street art initiatives.
