I'm Michel Daenen

I was born and raised in the Netherlands. But that did not automatically enable me to understand Dutch culture. Only after I had traveled and lived abroad I discovered the typical things about my home country. I am a sociologist and have been teaching and coaching people from all walks of life for more than 25 years. I love to support newcomers to understand the things that help them to live and work happily in The Netherlands.
