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.

    • Thanks for leaving this comment Christoph. I totally agree that water is one of the most pressing issues facing us. That is why I joined the International Water Association, is it is in our mission to ensure the right water solutions for a sustainable world. We work with water professionals globally (thus putting real structural solutions into place) and with anyone concerned with the future of water. Trust you appreciate, 🙂 Though the Greenpeacer inside of me is totally alive, 🙂
