Philippine (Flip) is responsible for all marketing / communications related areas of IPNLF; both internal and external communications, campaigns, and relationships. Her connection to the ocean is not by study or trade, but by being a competitive sailor ranging from short distance sailing and being a sail instructor in Europe, to long distance sea sailing. She believes that growing up with three brothers has made her a communication and negotiation expert from an early age.
Prior to working for IPNLF, she started her career as the Community & Marketing Manager launching Yelp in Europe, before moving into the role of Marketing & Communications Director being responsible for all communications, marketing campaigns, PR, event organisation, and public relations. After waving goodbye to the review platform, she created her own roles working independently in structuring and positioning companies. Through these roles she has worked for KIA, Corporate Sports Events, We Are Eves, and many more. Alongside working for IPNLF, she continues working on her independent projects and opening her own bar & restaurant in Amsterdam.
