I am Inge, an avid reader, a love for writing and an optimistic dancer!
I am passionate about life. I believe in the need to create systemic change and the potential of contributing to that through communications and the power of connectivity.
A life-long activist and feminist, I was born in the Dutch town of Winsum to Jewish-Protestant parents who nurtured my belief in co-creation and love, but with a clear push on atheism. That obviously determined me quite a bit. Nowadays I would call myself agnostic and with a growing interest in spiritualism and the ‘old religion’ in which the law of nature is the pivotal focus.
I am the Communications & Engagement Director at IWA – the International Water Association (UK registered charity, operational HQ in The Hague): www.iwa-network.org.
My over 20-year professional experience includes international organisational communications, strategic media relations, crisis/issues management, PR events, speakers’ management, internal communications and brand management. I have worked for Greenpeace International, Motorola, Philips Electronics, P&O Nedlloyd, Statoil and led the Dutch branch of Burson-Marsteller.
