Danielle Batist

Journalist, inspired by changemakers.


Nice to meet you.

I’m Danielle and I’m a journalist first and foremost. Alongside journalistic work (English and Dutch) I work as a consultant for old and new media organisations, with a focus on innovation, non-profit sustainability, crowdfunding and membership models and re-inventing storytelling to engage audiences.

I also deliver media workshops and launch and manage editorial projects using the latest digital storytelling tools. After fifteen years abroad – including 10 in the UK – I’m now based in the Netherlands, where I work for a range of national and international clients.

I love bringing stories that matter to the world and finding the most engaging ways to do so. While both the medium and the message are changing, the need for good journalism is perhaps stronger than ever.
