Welcome! You've made a smart choice

Content marketing, storytelling, editorial production and creative direction in English for non-native professional audiences: that's the name of the game. Coopercomms (Mike Cooper, and associates if required) provides communications consultancy and editorial content for clients based in the Netherlands. All project dialogue can be in Dutch if required. Most recent repeat clients are in the agribusiness, higher education, smart home tech and cycling sectors. But whatever the subject, it's all about the best native English-language communications, with a Dutch touch.
Please note: the "previously" projects are not all by Coopercomms

Stakeholders are talking about it

You want your stakeholder communications and content marketing to deliver information to the right people in the correct tone of voice. We have wide experience with internal and external communications. Online, offline, events (dagvoorzitterschap) for both B2C and B2B clients.

You'll never guess what happened...

You want your stories to be well-told and engaging as well as journalistic and clear. I work alongside you get the right messages across. I also know some great designers, illustrators and video crews if you need a full-service creative team.

This is why we're different

My content strategy, editorial concepts and content are often created for people who are not native English speakers. Clients today seek the best English in a creative, international context. Pure native English can be over-complicated. English content written for non-natives is clear, simple, effective and still very correct. The only people who can do this well are those who understand what does not work for non-native English audiences and why. I am bi-lingual English/Dutch, which can be helpful for communication during projects.

That's me in the corner.

Thanks Floris!
