Veronika Uhl

I was born and raised in Austria and have been living in the Netherlands for twenty years. After studying Economics at the University of Amsterdam I went to work for KLM. The company gave me an opportunity to fulfil a wide range of positions, such as market researcher and Product Manager Business Class.

In 1994 I decided to take the plunge and set up my own business; the marketing project management agency Himmelblau. My customers are mainly in the service sector but increasingly also in the non-profit sector. I develop marketing plans and strategies for them, work out positioning issues, and prepare branding policies.

For the past eight years I have been intensively involved in Net4kids, an internet platform for child aid projects. There I gained valuable knowledge and experience in the field of corporate philanthropy and development aid, enabling me to advise and assist companies and organisations in the relatively new domain of corporate giving.

I am consequently able to combine my knowledge and experience of marketing, social goals and development aid, in both the profit and non-profit sectors, with my personal passion for contributing towards a better world. That gives me a tremendous sense of fulfilment.
