N2P is a communication and training agency run by Marcel van de Hoef.



As a former financial journalist, I use my writing, research skills and understanding of the media to help organizations communicate with more clarity and focus. I thoroughly enjoy immersing myself in complex subject matter to produce appealing stories in a language that people can understand.


Over the past 15 years, I’ve developed a strong interest in interpersonal communication. I develop theory and train professionals to help them get more out of meetings. My approach works best with those who deal with complex subject matter and are typically the ones asking the questions.

Think clearly, communicate effectively
