Nicole in Den Helder, Netherlands

I am currently busy getting my Bachelor in International Marketing and Communication and already work as a freelance PA.

I'm currently re-organizing my company from the name to the services offered. I started the company a year ago, but the structure/strategy was not successful; mainly due to the fact that I live in an area in The Netherlands that is very reserved and I was naive about the target market.

The objective is to offer concierge and event planning services to person’s visiting/Expats in The Netherlands and/or Europe. I am constantly hearing I am throwing my net to wide, but I believe if I focus on gaining exposure from international clients that over time I will attract Dutch Client.

The reason I have started this discussion, is to network/partner with International Vendors and Event Planners who may be interested in working with me ... be it just by having a link on my website that will soon be up or allowing me to assist you with information or assisting clients that may be visiting The Netherlands and may require some assistance.

Please feel free to share any advice or become a contact; it will truly be appreciated.

Nicole

For the past three years I worked at Oakland Hills Country club as the assistant Catering Director and I am currently the head of the Catering department at Red Run Golf Club. I am looking to expand my experience, expecially in different locations. I would love the opportunity to work in Europe and am seeking any available chances. Please let me know any information.

Thank you,
Rachel

Hello Nicole and Rachel. I am starting a small wedding planning business in Greece which will primarily be aimed at Greek-Americans/ expats who are interested in planning a wedding in Greece but are new to the area or are planning from a distant location. Rachel I was born and raised in Windsor Ontario and moved to Athens a few years ago! Nicole I think your idea is a good one, it just depends on how common the Netherlands are for a destination wedding or for expats returning there for a wedding. In any case, if either of you wish to contact me here is my email: info@elitalaios.gr
