Minke Havelaar

Freelance communication specialist and trainer


Minke Havelaar - Social Media Marketing Training, juni 2012 Simone Schoutens

I am an independent marketing communication specialist with a special interest in the social web. In 2011 I founded MINKE HAVELAAR - Agency for Contemporary Communication. My mission is to empower organisations to bridge the gap between creativity and commerce.

I am most passionate about sustainability, fashion, design, arts and culture. My clients include cultural centre De Brakke Grond, sustainable denim brand KUYICHI, knowledge organisation Transvorm and social/ cultural centre Corrosia.

Together with my business partner Suzan Huesken I run social media agency SUMI. We work for sustainable trade label UTZ certified and cultural festivals such as Read My World and Theater Na de Dam.

Based in Amsterdam, I share a studio in New West with designer Aliki van der Kruijs and my dog Raf.

Until July 2011 I worked as communications & PR manager for Mediamatic Lab and Kom je ook?. Before that, I worked as a marketing manager for an international publishing company and studied communication sciences and, oui oui, French.
