Westland's Tamara van den Berg has started her own marketing agency named Tamarketing. "With my company I will tell the story of their company, brand and product, together with the grower. Entrepreneurs can show their pride more online. That strengthens your market position on several fronts."
Tamara's affinity with horticulture was originally fostered by her father, who was also a grower. As a little girl, her interest in flowers and plants was planted as a seed. After graduating from Hogeschool Rotterdam, it soon became clear that she wanted to combine her work with horticulture. Over the past eight years, that small seed has been growing. Tamara worked as a communications consultant and trade marketer at Decorum Plants & Flowers.
"When I start a conversation with an entrepreneur, I soon see it: that twinkle in the eye, the love for the profession often radiates from them. The passion of entrepreneurs is not always expressed in images and text, and this is where I would like to make a change. I like to be the connecting factor for sharing information and inspiration via social media and mailings. That's what makes my heart beat faster. Short lines of communication, switching quickly and putting companies in the spotlight. That is what I stand for. Everything you give attention to, grows. With the right knowledge and experience, I have the confidence that I can help others to flourish."
