The Monkey Network does not have permanent staff, and we do not work with fixed office locations. There are plenty of opportunities to work wherever you want (watch the videos below for some inspiration), and there are also plenty of workplaces that you can use flexibly.
The Monkey Network heeft geen personeel in vast dienstverband en we werken ook niet met vaste kantoorlocaties. Er zijn volop mogelijkheden om te werken waar je wil (bekijk onderstaande video’s maar eens voor wat inspiratie) en er zijn ook genoeg werkplekken die je flexibel kan gebruiken.
We encourage our customers to regularly step out of their bubble (or even ivory tower) and keep in touch with their target audience. You will discover how René does that in this video. In addition, our founder René van Dijk is a great lover of nature, but to his great sadness, more and more wildlife is disappearing to make people's lives as comfortable as possible. His love for flora and fauna also made René embrace the monkey as a symbol for his agencies.
The Roots Room where Eckard Wintzen came to insights.
At the start of the corona crisis, René occasionally started working from one of the flex rooms at Better Meetings in Austerlitz (municipality of Zeist) on the west side of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug National Park. This building is a former forest shed of Staatsbosbeheer, a gym for students and a hangout for hippie and Origin BSO founder Eckart Wintzen.

In 1804 about 18,000 soldiers of Napoleon's army gathered in these forests under General de Marmont and built (partly out of boredom) a 17-meter high pyramid. A year later, Napoleon defeated the much larger armies of Austria and Russia at the Battle of Austerlitz in the Czech Republic. His brother and future King of Holland Lodewijk Napoleon Bonaparte named the pyramid after that city of Austerlitz.
It is the ideal place for the workshops that Monkey Inside organizes for groups of employees of customers who purchase a B2B Scale-Up Bundle. Upon entering, you must turn off your phone and hand it over to Kim, after which René first takes you for a walk of more than an hour through the forest between Austerlitz and Soesterberg. When we return, we go to work with an empty head but full of inspiration. Then, the beautiful people of Better Meetings, with the help of students who could use some extra support, prepare an organic lunch.
We also have an office in the newest tower of the WTC on the Zuidas in Amsterdam, next to the Amsterdam Zuid train station. From here, you are in the heart of downtown Amsterdam or at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in only 10 minutes. Zuidplein has an underground parking garage, restaurants and café De Blauwe Engel for appointments at the end of Friday afternoon.
Our Utrecht branch is in Villa De Oorsprong, where the river Vecht seems to have originated. The villa lies next to the Oorsprongpark bus stop and is close to the A27 and A28 highways. There is space to park on the perimeter.
Digital nomad René regularly opens a temporary office abroad.
For inspiration, have a look at his video reports from Brazil, Eswatini, Georgia and Ireland.
