What do you bring to EPPA?
Stijn: With an academic background in China studies and International Relations, I first gained experience in an international working environment, such as the EU delegation in Hong Kong and WorldPride. After that, I also worked in the advocacy department of the VNG.
Veronique: My passion for social issues started during my studies in European studies, after which I gained work experience at various NGOs. For example, I was previously a PA advisor at an organisation working for people with disabilities.
What are your first impressions?
Stijn: EPPA is a nice office where everyone works together to best inform and advise our clients on their advocacy, stakeholder management and strategic communications. It is a close-knit team where there is also room for a chat and a drink.
Veronique: I am falling head over heels in this exciting election season and I am enjoying conversations about politics with colleagues and clients.
What are you looking forward to the most?
Stijn: I look forward to contributing my experience and enthusiasm to exciting projects and learning even more about public affairs and strategic communication.
Veronique: I am really looking forward to using my experience and dedication to social issues at EPPA. Let's take on great projects together and celebrate successes!
