Thank you for your interest in Meeting Strategist.

My name is Marcel van de Hoef (“I”, “my”, “me”). I am the curator of the Meeting Strategist blog and host of the eponymous podcast. As a former journalist, transparency is very important to me. That’s why I have laid out here what personal information I collect, when this happens, for what reasons, how I use it and how I keep it safe.

I will only do this once you have submitted a newsletter request and confirmed your email address through the link you have received in your inbox. I will not use your email address for other purposes.

Furthermore, I use Squarespace Analytics as a reporting platform to get insight into how my website is performing.
