Let’s talk!

Her spirit of discovery for innovative topics, her passion for a successful human exchange and her professional talent to connect people in a target-oriented way are important anchor points of her career path.

In her previous positions, Chérine De Bruijn was Managing Director of a large industry association and has promoted the networking of the digital economy in the region. Since then, she has been one of NRW's „101 Digitale Köpfe” ("101 digital minds"). As Press Officer and Head of Corporate Communication, she was previously responsible for the corporate communications of various companies (internal and external), including one of the largest owner-managed digital agencies in Germany.

Chérine De Bruijn supports her clients as an "igniter", also in the context of business events – both behind the scenes as a source of inspiration and with her craft, as well as live on stage.

“A moderation should consider four facets: on the one hand it should inform and inspire, on the other hand it should be motivating and entertaining for the guests. This combination, combined with suitable program highlights, makes for a good event that will be remembered for a long time to come.”
— Chérine De Bruijn, Founder CORPORATE KITCHEN®

Full of energy, exchange and messages...

"With Chérine and CORPORATE KITCHEN, we have transformed the public demodays of our international corporate entrepreneurship program into formats full of energy, intense exchange and clear messages. The basis for this was, in particular, Chérine's professional preparation of all relevant appointments, her effective briefing of the speakers and her inspiring "moderation". – Johannes Nuenning, Vice President UQBATE/Deutsche Telekom AG
