The average day

Ha! Who are we kidding? Average… A day at Typhoon is thinking you've got your to-do list down for the day and end up doing a bunch of other stuff. It's brainstorms and meetings with drinks after. It's coming up with the perfect newsjacker and sending it off into the world wide web an hour later. It's pitching faster than Walter Johnson. It's creating the things, we ourselves didn't even think were possible. Just, the average.

Our teams

Though usually we avoid thinking inside boxes, we divide our Typhoonies into four functions: DO | MAKE | TELL | LIKE. DO makes sure sh*t gets done. They're account-, project- and event managers all wrapped-up in one. DO finds a trusty companion in TELL. These PR managers simply can't stop telling, mailing and sending. And while TELL talks to press and bloggers team LIKE uses social media to get in touch with guests and consumers. And MAKE? Whatever these other folks - or their own creative minds - dream up, these Picassos and Shakespeares of the modern day make it happen.

How to licensee

Though we've got our cunning plotting and moustache twirling down, we can't dominate the world all by ourselves from our HQ in Amsterdam. That's where our licensees come in - international talent to shape, leverage and distribute the best local hospitality stories to the world. Being a licensee is like owning a business with the help, facilities, back-up and knowledge of the established Typhoon Hospitality brand and its team of experts. Wanna know more? Drop us a line.

The Woman with a Plan

The 'Never Forget' experience

I ended up in the kitchen of a Cuban mama. Law only allowed her to feed us chicken, rice and beans. But after 3 weeks of just that, she sneakily prepared us 2 fresh lobsters. The best ever.

The 'Never Forget' experience

Sipping a cocktail. On a rooftop. In New York. While being practically blind because of double eye infection… I had to be sheep dogged through a club, and it was still the best night ever.

Quirky eating habit

When I do groceries, I grab a fresh bread roll from the bread department and eat it while I do my shopping. At the register, I pay for an empty 'broodzakje'.
