We are Bind

Following many years of individual experience within the field of community management, Kirsten Wagenaar and Peter Staal set up a joint agency, Bind, at the start of 2017.

We are all driven by a great passion for the job. This is why we prefer working with organizations that share our conviction in our methods and, just like us, are willing to put effort into fostering communities. A community cannot be created overnight, and because the process is rooted in behavioural change and a different way of working, the job is never quite done. But for organizations willing to make the investment, the benefits are immense.

Kirsten Wagenaar


Since 2008 I have been involved in a professional capacity in the development and management of dozens of communities. Empowering both community members and organizations through community development makes the impossible possible.
Peter Staal


I believe strongly that the whole is more than the sum of its parts. This conviction, along with a great affinity with the ways in which digital resources can be used in its fulfilment, is what gives me such great pride and pleasure in my work. Our goal at Bind is to allow organizations to utilize their social capital as effectively as possible. People are the heart of our business,which means there’s never a dull day!

Job Valkenburg - Community Consultant

Creating positive connections between people has been my biggest passion for many years now. By uniting people with the same interest in music, games or artists I’ve learned the value of doing so.

Evelien Janson - Community Consultant

I am a natural connector and know from experience that communities don't thrive without support. Especially in today's individualistic world it is important to understand how to create the right conditions that enable people to connect. And that's what I love to do most, both on- and offline.

Tamar Berger - Community Consultant

Communities have always been a part of my life. In 2010 I started working with communities on a professional level. Connection is something that everyone longs for and I love that I get to facilitate organisations in designing and implementing an approach based around human connection.
