Pleased to meet you, my name is Nienke D. Nijenhuis. I was born in the Netherlands, but I have lived in Vejle, Denmark, since 2019. I am an experienced communication professional with a passion for science and technology.

I provide value-based communication services: Integrity is the key to becoming your trusted advisor. Strong in building relationships, I find the best communication solutions. Learning and understanding are the cornerstones of my work. Equally important is taking responsibility, doing the right thing at the right time. Work with me and you will find yourself working with a loyal ally.

My strengths are in strategic thinking, empathy and activation: I am inquisitive and eager to learn. My international experience enables me to take another perspective.

Building strong relationships is key to getting the work done. I motivate a team by making the first move.

As a communication advisor I help you to convey expert knowledge in the context of science, technology and society. Through structured communication, I contribute to supporting cooperation within your organisation and with external partners. My aim is to build trust through professional communication.
