    Ellen Bokkinga is founder of The New Verbalizers.

    A New Verbalizer verbalizes the sign of our times into valuable solutions, while simultaneously giving a glimpse of a (better) future. “See, this is how we’re going to live, work and learn from now on”. These leaders live in vision and are able to verbalize what they envision. The initiative The New Verbalizers is founded to celebrate the imagination and hails everyone who dare to speak up and change the future.

    The New Verbalizers works at the crossroads of sharing knowledge, visioning and social change. Our activities range from organizing events, developing DIY tools, setting up collaborations and writing about idea development. The New Verbalizers is founded in 2009 by Ellen Bokkinga, independent concept developer and creative.


    TNV believe that no barrier must exist between a brilliant idea in someone’s mind and the execution. Every idea idea owner should be given the ability to develop, tell and spread their ambition. We want to give idea owners the opportunity to discover and realize their ambition. Our mission is to help all idea owners to verbalize and execute what they envision.
