Engagement strategy

Advise & concept development

You have a great idea, but you’re not sure how to get your message across? Looking for help to better understand what stakeholders need to make change happen?

Whether it’s advise or concept development for engagement, I’m ready to help. Together we’ll find the best strategy to connect with the people with whom you want to make a difference.

Connecting with people requires empathy and trust. I’d love to work with you to hear, see and reach the people with whom you want to make a difference. To listen to their needs and concerns, find a sense of the possible and create the space to make change happen.

I’ve provided advise and online engagement productions for a.o. the Dutch National Programme Open Science, the European project FIT4RRI and artist collective Moving Arts Project.

I can highly recommend to work with Ay Mey. We hired her for two different video projects and she took care of each single step on the way to great outcome. She is very professional and always knows which questions to ask to get to a perfect result. Her calm charisma took away all nervousness from our interviewees and in the end we did not only have a simple conference video, but a real story, received well and shared widely by the community.

Co-artistic director Moving Arts Project

We have been working with Ay Mey for many years with great pleasure. This has everything to do with the open and honest way in which she communicates, her focused dedication and optimistic curiosity. She closely understands the mission and vision of our artist collective and knows exactly how to articulate the core of our organization.

I have had the pleasure of hiring Ay Mey for quite a few projects. Working with her is always a joy. She is reliable, accurate, flexible and very professional in her (online) communications. Next to that she is a team player; she is very experienced in concept development and brainstorming; this is feedback that I get from clients as well. During video shoots she knows how to instruct inexperienced people in a very professional, pleasant manner, and she is always in control even at long, hectic days. I can fully recommend Ay Mey for all kind of creative project management assignments!

For our series of publications, Ay Mey coordinated the complete creative process. She turned our basic idea for a newspaper into a beautiful publication that told our story and managed the project with oversight. We love working with her as she couples great story-telling skills with a hands-on, getting things done mentality.
