Vicky Fasten

Coaching, financiële bemiddeling, training

I joined DNA in 2015 as the Partner heading DNA Business Coaching & Training Services as I fully believe in Damaira’s vision of creating a powerhouse of talented professionals, headed by senior line managers to assisting start-ups, self employed professionals as well as mature, well established professionals and brands from the creative sector with all their needs by listening to their hearts and by creating the first ever global online community for this sector.

My connection and passion for the creative sector is personal. When I finished the Art Academy in Amsterdam and Art Policy & Management Master in Utrecht I got interested in entrepreneurship and finance. Creative minds still inspire me a lot, however I feel more at ease in a business role where I can help creative entrepreneurs realise their dreams. The last degree I have is in Financial Planning. I developed myself as a consultant with a strong focus on finance and strategy.

I strongly believe that the creative industry has valuable assets and is ready to move forward. Customer demands are changing and the creative industry is able to meet this demand with clever innovations, such as DNA Community, which provides full service for creative entrepreneurs to accelerate their road-map to success.

 


 

Peggy Walker

Personal coaching & branding

I joined DNA in 2014 as the Partners heading DNA Personal Coaching & Branding Services as I fully believe in Damaira’s vision of creating a powerhouse of talented professionals, headed by senior line managers to assisting start-ups, self employed professionals as well as mature, well established professionals and brands from the creative sector with all their needs by listening to their hearts and by creating the first ever global on-line community for this sector.

I am a natural born creative person – as private person I am always busy with interior, styling, decoration, design, photography and much more. Creativity is my passion but as it was a “smarter choice” I have chosen for a career in the national and international banking sector.

I focused on helping start-ups setting-up their businesses and on assisting existing companies to grow their businesses and to realize their financial and commercial goals. This is my talent. However, as my creative part was “calling” me as well, I became, in parallel to my career in the financial sector, a self-employed professional in the creative sector: I have developed myself from Decorator to Window Dresser to Stylist.

While working in the creative sector I discovered that the business part was often left unattended by creative professionals while it is essential to building a successful and sustainable business.

This discovery resolved my personal puzzle:

I decided to combine my talent and ten years experience in the financial sector with my passion and seven years experience in the creative sector.

My decision resulted in coaching professionals from the creative sector to realize their dreams in a structured manner that leads to successful business and financial prosperity.

Annet Sabander

Fashion promotion

I joined DNA in 2014 as the Partner heading up DNA Fashion Promotion Services, as I fully believe in Damaira’s vision of creating a powerhouse of talented professionals, headed by senior line managers to assisting start-ups, self employed professionals as well as mature, well established professionals and brands from the creative sector with all their needs by listening to their hearts and by creating the first ever global online community for this sector.

My connection and passion for the creative sector is personal. As a child I knew I would end up working in the creative industry. Also a lot of relatives and friends have worked and still work in this field, from musicians and photographers to fashion designers, artists and fashion stylists. Although I started in a complete other line of business, the creative industry kept working as a magnet and it was only a matter of time that I would take the first step in making the switch.

After a short time of assisting in fashion event productions I developed myself as a talented and dedicated producer of mainly fashion events. Over the past four years I have produced several events and photo shoots, such as topmodel Kim Feenstra’s birthday party for charity, the launch event of a special edition of Dutch high end sneaker brand Mason Garments, the Into Fashion Shopping Event in the luxurious Wyndham Apollo Hotel in Amsterdam, the lookbook shoot and co-production of the runway show of the emerging French fashion label Crabe Design. In November 2014 I launched the brand new creative concept Five Hours of F.A.M.E., a platform for creative startups in the fields of fashion, art, music and entertainment which contains an event and a pop up store & gallery.

 


 

Loes Kok

Art sign & management

My connection and passion for the creative sector is personal: As I a child I loved drawing and painting. Although I didn’t follow any creative studies, my interest in design and art has always existed and developed. As creative professional I started a silkscreen studio and printing workshop named ‘Untitled’ in Amsterdam in 1998 wherein I produced print work for many artists. My former partner had two interior design shops in Den Haag where we exposed the print work and organized exhibitions with original artwork from several artists. As this became a winning combination we added a frame workshop as well as digital publishing company to the business and by early 2000 we became one of the first art dedicated Dutch digital publishers. In 2002 we opened our own art gallery in Rotterdam.

 


 

Jennifer Delano

PR-partner

As a child, I started creative writing and won multiple prices such as the Youth VSB Poezië prize. I also published stories and books. When I started working with my creative talents I explored, beside writing: acting, presenting, modeling (Amsterdam Fashion Week (AMFI and Haruco-Vert) as well as fitting model at Tommy Hilfiger for the entire spring collection), producing (eight episodes of the TV program Basic Fashion and a short film that which made it to the Cannes Short Film Corner Film Festival), singing (produced a full album including the underground hit “Amsterdam”) and much more. During the process I found out how important visibility is for creative professionals and discovered that creating visibility for other talented creative professionals is my biggest talent. It was then that I realized that becoming a PR agent was the only choice I had…

I have built my professional experience in the field of Public Relations since 2002: from consulting businesses and individuals in approaching the press to full A to Z planning and execution of branding, marketing and sales campaigns.

My professional education and skills include, amongst others: Communications Management (graduated 2012), Online Marketing University (graduated 2012), Ravisie (graduated NLP Practitioner (2013) and NLP Master (2014)), investing in communication by using NLP and taking two courses of sign language at GGMD (2013).

Gaining all this knowledge helped me winning the JCI Internet Award and being recognized by Viva400 as one of the 400 most important businesswomen.
