Who we are


A fresh and curious communication agency

Kweek Communicatie is the communication agency of Tilburg. Because we are affiliated with Tilburg University, we bring the knowledge from our lectures directly into practice. ‘Kweek’ stands for growth. Growing is what we have been doing since 2008. Four motivated students run Kweek every academic year and put their own spin on it. This year, it’s our turn:

Suzanne van Strien


Suzanne is starting with her master’s degree in Business communication and Digital Media this year. As president of Kweek she is the first point of contact and keeps the overview. At Kweek she can express her interest in writing, social media and business communication and she can apply the knowledge of her study in practice. Together with her fellow board members she is looking forward to an educational and challenging board year! 

Lisa Koolen

Vice chair

Lisa is doing the Pre-Master’s program in Communication and Information Science. As vice-chair, she is mainly involved in the finances of Kweek Communication, such as keeping track of payments and contacting the accountant. Kweek offers the perfect opportunity to gain practical experience alongside her studies.

Geertje Kandelaars

Project Manager Web & Media

Geertje is currently studying for a Master’s degree in Business Communication and Digital Media. She likes to put the theories she learns in the lectures into practice. She sees herself working at a communication agency in the future. That’s why she chose to work as the project leader web & media. As the project leader web & media, she is responsible for the communication between students and clients. Additionally, she takes on all the other tasks involved in running a communication agency.

Siënna Kolkman

Project Manager Language & Text

Siënna is a third-year bachelor’s student in communication and information sciences. Planning, writing and language are passions she wanted to put to use in a position. During her year at Kweek Communicatie as project leader, she feels like a fish in the water. In this role, she ensures a good collaboration between students and companies and that the projects run smoothly. She also represents Kweek together with the other board members at events and they keep the social media channels up to date.

The four-member board of Kweek ensures that the assignment that comes in is carried out by a suitable student. This allows the student to gain practical experience and will be able to immediately apply their knowledge from their studies. This is advantageous to you because students have the most up-to-date knowledge. By working this way, the student can gain work experience and learn a lot and the customer benefits from the soft price. Customer happy, student happy, Kweek happy!

We Love Coffee!
