Angl is Patrick van der Hijden’s one-person company.


I develop and program events like seminars, debates, talkshows and conferences and brainstorms. And I develop storylines for brands, films and exhibitions. I’m a seasoned host for debates, seminars and talkshows.

Creativity, proactivity and a keen eye for relations and organisational culture. That’s what I bring to the table. I’m at my best in situations that ask for change and when cooperation is important and sometimes hard. My best roles are: moderator, strategic advisor, developer, pioneer and project lead at te starting phase of projects.


Angl is a single-seater company, but I hardly ever work alone. Together with other professionals, from consultants to designers, we realise the full potential of our clients’s projects. Angl’s partners also help in forming and tweaking ideas and concepts. That’s why Angl is part of a network of other good companies and shares its office space with other small-and-beautiful companies.

Patrick van der Hijden did an MA in art history, he is fluent in Dutch and English

(Angl: it’s a fantasy name, suggesting both oversight (the right angle) and sharpness (‘angel’ means ‘sting’ in Dutch))
