About the speaker

My name is Heike, I am the founder and SEO specialist at VA Creative Media which is a creative agency with a focus on SEO, Web Design and Branding.

Originally, I am from the Netherlands but live already since 2017 here in the UK, I am a father of two girls called Valentina & Aaliyah – and I am keen supporter of the disabled community due to my youngest having a rare genetic disorder. Which is why my company is a Social Enterprise, and we have a strong social mission to support this community as company and employer.
