WHO WE ARE

Bird's Eye Communications is a small consultancy firm dedicated to helping clients phrase effective messages tailored to audiences they target. We also assist in finding the right channels to get them across.

Our bird's eye view enables us to always remain focused on the big picture. In today's world's communications, less often means more, since audiences are already overloaded with information. That makes it essential to get to the heart of the matter, to phrase it concisely and effectively without loosing important nuance. Bird's Eye Communications uses decades of broad media experience to do just that.

At Bird's Eye, we care not just about how and when your message should be delivered. We take particular pride in wanting to understand fully what information you have to offer, no matter how complicated the issue. That, and the fact that with us you always know with whom you'll be working, sets us far apart from much of the competition.

Bird's Eye Communications was founded by Peter Vermij, a biologist, former reporter and science journalist with extensive experience in Europe and the United States. As a journalist, he used to write for leading international journals such as Nature Biotechnology and Nature Medicine, among others. As a consultant, he has worked with numerous high-level clients at major organisations. Peter's broad science background enables him to really understand clients' experts and to build strong bridges between them and their lay audiences. For more on Peter's background, please check out his CV. An extensive clippings archive will give you a good sense of his English-language writings back when he was a reporter. (Dutch clippings can be accessed through the Dutch-language site.)

Where needed, and in full agreement with clients, Bird's Eye will add or assign other consultants or communicators to projects. We have an excellent media network with extensive connections in the Netherlands and abroad.
