In het Engels

Omdat in veel bedrijven en organisaties Engels de voertaal is. En omdat ik me daar happy bij voel, daarom werk en train in ook in het Engels.  

My qualifications: Proficiency in English (BLTC Amsterdam, Babel), several projects and training programmes in English (Digital Transformation Communication @ Enza Zaden, Effective business writing @ Janssen Biologics, Copywriting in English @ XYZTEC).
