A heron with ambition

iNA! Oome Miss Marketing

Miss Marketing

A unique, very colorful bird

I came across this photo thanks to my love for flamingos. And after laying eyes on this beautiful image, two things happened: I suddenly saw the similarities between this flamingo and a heron, and realized my love extends to the countries where they live.

Only the tropical flamingo would rather eat shrimp than fish, prefers the sun over the rain, and wants to see more than the Dutch waters. This unique, vibrant bird loves living on the other side of the world.

My family has lived in the Netherlands for generations, and I am a proud descendant of "Rinus the Heron"*. Yet I love Bonaire (an island territory of the Netherlands off the coast of South America), where I happily sit in the sun and enjoy everything it has to offer. That is why I live with one foot in the Netherlands and one in the Caribbean.

My passion is building marketing relationships on a contract and or project basis for Dutch, Caribbean, and American clients. That way, I can enjoy the best of all worlds!

That makes me, Ina Oome Miss Marketing, a heron with ambition, or in other words, a flamingo!

*Rinus the Heron was the nickname of my paternal grandfather. He owed this name because he often stood on one leg when working on the ship.

Ina was instrumental in getting our website up and running. She is a pleasure to collaborate with on a yearlong project. We had many meetings where she kept our team focused and on task. She listens attentively to varying viewpoints but also knows how to realign the focus to accomplish hard deadlines. She is knowledgeable, has excellent communication skills, complex problem resolution skills, as well as, creative and adaptable to any situation. I highly recommend Ina as your go to Marketing Resource.

Marijke Vreugdenhil – Sr. B2B Marketeer | Tech to Market
For hands-on and result-oriented marketing coaching is Ina the right person. She has coached two successful assignments where I was also involved and therefore I can say from my own experience that it is pleasant to work with her.
Thijs Torreman – Education Manager | Avans+
“The first words popping up when thinking about working with Ina, are ‘smart’ and ‘smooth’. Clear communications, open and honest intentions, right balance between listening and speaking up. Ina and I worked on customer journey and persona research for a complex matrix organization with multiple in,- and external stakeholders. Ina’s attitude and approach helped me to quickly understand the business and organization dynamics. Turning complexity into clarity. She can constantly switch between strategy and operations. Understanding how to stick to strategic priorities & having instant business impact. When working on new projects, exploring new opportunities the soft side of projects is super important. Ina always made me feel comfortable to speak up and strive for the best together. Thankful for having met Ina as a person and marketing professional!”

Ina has worked on several brand campaign projects within my team and has at each occasion demonstrated herself as a great marketing communications professional, always on the ball, highly results driven and well organized!
Nanda Huizing – Head of Brand Communications & Digital | Philips Benelux
I worked with Ina during my interim period at Philips. Ina is very professional and dedicated, but most prominent qualities are the ownership she takes and decisive way of working. Based on a very good (online) marketing and communication knowledge she is able to plan and act in a very pragmatic way.
Mark Jansen – Sr. Product Manager | Philips Health
We hired Ina to fill in during the maternity leave of our Manager Internal Communications. In that period I got to know her as a very pro-active, knowledgeable and no-nonsense Marketing-communication professional who, besides offering a hands-on approach, is also fun to work with.
Jeroen Schuitemaker – VP Head of Consumer Segment | Signify
Tino Appels – Co-Owner | Cargo Logistics
Ina and I have crossed our paths on several occasions. She has shown to be a reliable business partner on all those projects.
