Growing Minds

A challenging yet fun ride.

“It has been – and still is – a ride with lots of changes, fun, deadlines, drinks and team events. The best choice I could have made was joining this great, ever-growing agency in the heart of Amsterdam.”

Fleur became part of the Growing Minds family in September 2019. Before joining the team, she studied Communication and Journalism after which she worked at TELEAC SchoolTV (now NTR:) as creative editor for a popular TV show. This job was what first awakened her interest in fundraising and the “good cause”. Working in digital fundraising became Fleur’s safe space for over seven years.

“After a while, I came to the realisation that I missed the fast pace, deadline-facing projects and high-energy work. That is when I decided I wanted to join Growing Minds. Luckily, in my role I still get to work daily with lovely nonprofits while enjoying the perks of working for Growing Minds”. 

Fleur points to the clients, the colleagues, the creative projects and the never-ending opportunities to learn Marketing Cloud and Salesforce as the main reasons for choosing Growing Minds.

On the job.

Within Growing Minds, Fleur is one of the Marketing Cloud Consultants focusing on helping nonprofit organisations. Her days often include coming together with clients to discuss and brainstorm fundraising projects and campaigns. She also forms part of the Fundraising Experts team, a team dedicated to defining and creating creative fundraising packages for clients.

Her main goal in her work is to create new projects and plans in order to be the best possible partner to clients. As for what keeps her challenged? “Keeping up with the never-ending updates and skills for Marketing Cloud and Salesforce can be pretty challenging at times; that being said, the challenge is the thing that drives me the most”.

Staying zen through gardening and yoga.

Fleur lives in Amsterdam and is “married to the best person in the world”. She loves gardening and learned as a child that the best part is digging in the sand with bare hands; she still does it as often as she can! Her second passion is yoga, “the stuff where I can freely do handstands and headstands”. 

She also enjoys meeting new people. “I have a few very good friends in my inner circle who I cherish very much. But I also love meeting new people, listening to their stories and hearing about their perspectives on life.” A milestone she hopes to reach one day in the far future is to cherish her friends (even if it is from a distance) far after they have become “grey and old”.

Fleur’s advice to others is to “just keep being the best version of yourself and all will be alright”.
