Katrien VollemanPartnership Developer
Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.
Bringing together private and public parties around a common goal has been the recurring theme throughout my studies and career. I strongly believe in the need for collaboration to work towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Being a partnership developer at NLWorks means I can do exactly that. Help entrepreneurs create profitable business while making social and environmental impact!
For most of my career I have worked on aligning stakeholders’ varying interests and bridging the gap between the public and private sector, mainly in the construction and energy sector. As a public affairs consultant I gained valuable experience in Dutch politics and governance, as a project manager at the Dutch normalization institute, NEN, I learned the importance of stakeholder and relations management. These experiences have made me understand that building long-lasting partnerships is never easy, but that together we can achieve so much more than alone!
