Who is Bert Hagendoorn?

I am proud to be recognized as Amsterdam’s leading brand positioning and communication strategy adviser, working predominantly with creative and marketing communications agencies. I help creative entities put their best foot forward through solid positioning and the provision of strategic communication plans, that clearly define and tell their story. I work for the leading digital, design and advertising 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 like bringing organizations, agencies and individuals together and love meeting people. 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.


Organizations, brands and events

Over the years, I helped many creative and digital organizations, events and brands with support on local or international activities - through my network of agencies, speakers, brands and other connections. These organizations are, among others; Creative Social, FITC, Awwwards, Advertising Week, Digital Podge, The Next Web, Design Yatra, Adobe and Microsoft.



I work for the leading digital, design and ad agencies in the Netherlands and help them to sharpen their positioning, develop the best possible communication strategy and advise them about events, awards and press. Amongst the clients I worked for and work for are:
