Meet Nadia Antheunis

Live life to the fullest

My name is Nadia Antheunis. I was born and raised in Zeeland, but I’ve been living happily in Soest for many years. My partner Sicco and I have three daughters: Caro (18), Romee (16) and Jackie (11). We’re a lively family, so there’s never a dull moment at home. I’m very proud of the girls. They’re completely different to each other, but they all have their own drive and like to do things that are fun and are important to them.

What I like? Good food, cooking together and fine dining. I actually eat everything, but Italian food would be my favorite if I had to choose. I love Italy, I think it’s a beautiful country. I like the people, the wonderful language and the passion that shines through in everything. Italian food is pure, simple and fresh – delicious! And I’m also secretly jealous of the motto of the Italians: Il dolce far niente – Sweet idleness.

I really enjoy my job

I’ve been working as ValueBlue’s Marketing Event Manager for over a year and I love it! After graduating from the Hotel Management School in Leeuwarden, I worked for a few years in the hotel sector. Then I had different Marketing & Communication jobs in various sectors and most recently I worked for eight-and-a-half years as a Senior Project Manager at DDG Smart Marketing (a European full-service marketing communication bureau). In all those years, I organized lots of fun and special events for large international IT-organizations such as IBM, Informatica and Oracle. In April 2019, ValueBlue hired me as its event manager. I really enjoy my job in the (mainly male) Sales & Marketing Team.

ValueBlue is a fantastic organization to work for. Great colleagues, all of them passionate about helping ValueBlue to grow and develop. ValueBlue is a horizontal organization with a no-nonsense culture in which results are important and people really listen to each other. We have lots of fun together: during lunch, while we’re working and when we see each other after work, such as at dinner parties or on boat trips or kart racing evenings.

A fantastic team and a great product

In my opinion, BlueDolphin is powerful as collaborative platform on which processes, data and applications are combined because it doesn’t just visualize and provide insights but also helps organizations to make the right decisions to achieve their defined goals. That’s when a product really makes a difference!

I believe we’ll be the market leader in 5 years’ time. After all, we have a fantastic team and a great product. And by then, our focus will be even more international, our events will be held on several continents and I and my team will be happy to organize them.
