Together with Mayke van Keep, Sybrig founded De Issuemakers in 2007 after working in politics and public affairs for over 25 years. As a managing partner, Sybrig focusses on issues management, strategy, public affairs, political agenda setting and stakeholder management. Her biggest assets are her pathos, strong analytical ability and far-reaching curiosity and knowledge. She knows exactly how policy is composed in government, politics and trade & industry, and when to approach and involve stakeholders. In her work, Sybrig continuously aims to unravel what really matters to your organization and is constantly looking for new challenges.
In 2017, both Sybrig & Mayke van Keep were included in the prestigious TheNextWomen100, a list of women who dare to be great and take risks, and who have become role models for the next generation of ambitious women. Moreover, Sybrig is involved in VNO-NCW’s women’s network and the Entrepreneurs Organization in Ouder Amstel.
