    Interview with VERTOV’s Martijn Winkler in the redesigned and newly launched Communicatie Magazine - the authoritative publication in the Netherlands for marketing, communication and pr professionals.

    Vertov is showcased as an example of the new trend for established agencies (like Coebergh) to create specific ‘labels’ for digital campaigns and creative content. Martijn talks about the benefits this has for clients and for the added effectiveness to (digital) campaigns.

    In another article, Martijn shares his strategies on how to reach Millennials - the sought after new generatiuon of consumers that do not respond to ‘traditional’ TV advertising - with lots of inspiring examples.

    Do check out the magazine, here at VERTOV HQ :-), perhaps at your office, or order a copy via their website.

    [Excerpt from Studio MAX Live on Public Television, interview with Martijn Winkler at 2:45]

    Since our creative director Martijn Winkler is an active board member for the Dutch Directors Guild - the network for professional film and television directors in the Netherlands -, he participated in an extensive protest of the audiovisual industry on December 17. The protests were aimed against the Governments’ proposed removal of the Mediafonds, which finances most Dutch documentaries, films and e-culture.

    Martijn was media spokesperson for the protest, which featured more than 200 of the best filmmakers of the Netherlands (including Oscar-winning directors), and explained the protesters’ point of view to an array of key media, including news broadcasts of the major channels. This was certainly storytelling on another level!

    Branding agency Vandejong Amsterdam met with Vertov’s cofounder, Gervaise Coebergh, for their series of interviews with inspirational people on the subject of brands, marketing and PR. (in Dutch)

    VANDEJONG INTERVIEWT:
    Gervaise Coebergh

    Door Vandejong

    In de wekelijkse serie ‘Vandejong interviewt’ vragen we naar de visie van inspirerende personen op merken en branding. Vorige week maakten we kennis met oprichter van Mediamatic Willem Velthoven, vandaag interviewden we Gervaise Coebergh (46) founding partner van Vertov, Coebergh Communicatie & PR, Spice PR en Spice Agency.

    Hoe ben jij in je huidige werk beland?
    Gewoon, zelf begonnen. Letterlijk driehoog achter. Ik heb daarvoor veel ervaring opgedaan bij VVV Rotterdam, waar ik verantwoordelijk was voor de perscontacten. Het was geen eenvoudige opdracht om toeristische journalisten in die tijd voor Rotterdam te interesseren – maar daarom juist wel leerzaam. De verhuizing naar Amsterdam, mijn grote liefde achterna, vormde een natuurlijk moment om voor mezelf te beginnen.

    Wat drijft jou in je werk?
    Het plezier om dingen tot bloei te brengen, gecombineerd met een grote nieuwsgierigheid in hoe dingen in elkaar steken.
