background
  • “"LUCIE IS A NETWORKER””

    I worked with Lucie as program manager expat policy in 2008 – 2010. Lucie is a networker pur sang, enthusiastic, reliable and good to work with. Thanks to her networks we could develop an expat policy with active participation of the expat community.

  • “"LUCIE'S ENERGY AND IDEAS SEEM LIMITLESS"”

    Lucie has helped me raise the profile of my small business aiming at kids’ education, despite the specificity of my market segment which at the time was only aiming at expatriates. Lucie has in less than a month given a lot of visibility to my activity and helped me meeting new customers from her extensive circle! Lucie’s kindness and professionalism come very naturally for her, and as a result she is a highly trusted networker and business partner in the expatriate community in the Netherlands. Her energy and ideas seem limitless and she is therefore a real asset for any entrepreneur who would hire her to gain visibility.

  • “"Lucie kan deuren voor je openen"”

    Lucie is een gedreven, deskundige professional met een groeigerichte mindset. Bovendien is ze oprecht en betrokken. Je kunt dus op haar bouwen en haar vertrouwen. Ze heeft een goede kennis van Delft en kent veel mensen. Ze stond dit jaar niet voor niets in de lijst van de 100 bekendste Delftenaren. Als je met Lucie werkt, kan ze deuren voor je openen. Als ze een idee deelt of promoot, kun je rekenen op meer draagvlak. Lucie legt niet alleen verbindingen tussen mensen maar ook tussen wensen. Ze is dan ook sterk in het bedenken van projecten en het vinden van mensen die samen een antwoord vormen op een/mijn algemene vraag. Ik heb veel waardering voor het feit dat ze goed kan samenwerken in uiteenlopende teams. Lucie is praktisch ingesteld, ziet ieders kwaliteiten en weet deze naar boven te halen en aan te spreken. Al jaren huur ik Lucie/ Delft Business Consultancy dan ook in voor verschillende projecten van mijn bedrijf Albedo communicatie. Bescheiden, is ze haar prijskaartje meer dan waard!

  • “"LUCIE IS DEEPLY PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT SHE DOES"”

    Lucie is a true professional, I met her during the World in Your Classroom Programme where I was a volunteer Guest Lecturer. She was always available to answer all my questions and coordinated so well the entire process in order for us to be well prepared and be in touch with the schools. This has been a great experience for me and I need to thank Lucie for it! Lucie is also a great networker. She is very well connected to both expat and local communities and thanks to her I met key professionals who helped me develop my own project. I am extremely happy to have met Lucie. She is such a kind person, very resourceful and deeply passionate about what she does.

ABOUT ME

STIMULATING THE PARTICIPATION OF INTERNATIONALS IN THE NETHERLANDS

Why do companies and individuals hire me?

I am a multilingual adviser, connector and facilitator who provides strategic advice to make projects for and PR campaigns to internationals a success.

With more than 10 years’ experience, I have been supporting internationals in the Netherlands as a community leader through my volunteer work as founder or board member of several organizations.

I have helped many internationals on their way to volunteer or paid work, or to their own businesses. I share information on social media to encourage internationals to attend local events and courses, or consume locally.

With 2,2000+ links on LinkedIn and 1,400+ followers on Twitter, I have an extensive network within Dutch institutions, non-profit organizations and businesses as well as international associations (not only native English speakers) and expat media in the Netherlands. All these connections will be useful for your projects.

BA in English as a Second Language with a minor in Spanish
Master’s degree in Women Studies from Université de Toulouse le Mirail in France
Erasmus Grant to attend linguistics classes at Sussex University in England
Staatsexamen NT2 Dutch as a second language certificate (university entrance level)
Leadership programme Stuurvrouwen Delft for highly educated foreign women to become board members of non-profits, associations or political party.

Awards:
2007 Volunteer of year in Delft (4 years after moving to the Netherlands),
Top 3 Expat of the Year the Netherlands in 2010
Top 2 Expat of the year Netherlands in 2011
Jury member Expat of the Year the Netherlands in 2012.
Voted as number 35 in 2017 (only 22 women) on “100 top most famous Delft inhabitants” list

I look forward to working with you on achieving your company’s or personal goals.
