My name is Rob Speekenbrink, and I live in Delft with my girlfriend and two children who are currently studying. I’m one of the founders of Noscura, a communication agency that specialises in online communication in the education and research sector. Since 2010, I’ve been working at and for educational institutions, focussing mostly on complex communication processes, crisis communication and strategic advice.
At the UvA, I’m responsible for internal and external communication relating to Recognition & Rewards at the university. Moreover, I sit on the programme committee of the national Recognition & Rewards programme, in the role of communications adviser.
I like the academic sector, and I’ve devoted a large part of my working life to communication issues in the world of teaching and research. I enjoy getting to grips with the complexity of issues and organisational structures, and I like to celebrate successes.
Clear communication with regard to setting up and embedding Recognition & Rewards at the UvA. I’m really eager to start activating natural Recognition & Rewards ambassadors so that they can begin telling their sincere and open stories
