A rare mix; incredibly professional and talented but human and so engaging too. I have used 22Midnight for a number of marketing and video commissions, and every time the response is quick, detailed and they always ooze very clever ideas. I’d have no hesitation in recommending – just fabulous!

Annelies is great at compartmentalising my thoughts and then giving me practical ideas on how to turn them into authentic content. My followers have increased by 40+% and my engagement rate to 300% in the 3 months that I started working with Annelies. Highly recommend Annelies’ down to earth yet pragmatic approach to personal branding.

Annelies is such a joy to work with, her energy and enthusiasm is truly infectious and she puts 110% into everything she does. I had the pleasure working with her on several filming projects and I also asked her to train my team on social media, branding and photography. Basically, there is nothing she is not great at!

I love working with Annelies! Not only is she incredibly professional and a perfectionist in her work, but she always understands our needs, the audience and has the patience and creativity to make the end product fabulous! She has quickly got to grips with our business, branding, objectives, etc. She is generous with her time and advice and is passionate about her work. She is also fun and easy to work with, puts those at ease in front of the camera and goes out of her way to help. Highly recommend!

Annelies is passionate about helping people define themselves, be noticed and build connection through personal brand and videography, although she does all sorts of other things too. She set up her business in 2018 and has flourished being her own boss, mainly because she gets to do it her own way. Annelies is the host of Colleagues Getting Coffee, co-author of The Female Edge and co-curator of TEDxSouthampton. She is always seeking new adventures both professionally and personally. If you are interested in collaborating, particularly on co-authored projects in the future, then get in touch!

Exploring, creating, experimenting & doing since 1987. I have always been very curious about the world and why things are the way they are, not being afraid to challenge the norms. I think my parents would describe me as determined, independent, stubborn and maybe a little bossy!

As someone who under performed at school, with no interest in college and moving from one job to another due to the lack of stimulation to grow but also to continue to challenge my own ability and push my boundaries. One thing that has been very consistent is the urge to go it alone and have my own business. Having more recently experienced life changing situations my mind has shifted from being super career focused to a drive for self- awareness, which I believe must come first in order to create the lifestyle your desire, then followed by the things to make that happen, i.e. starting your own business.

In 2019 the LDV brand was born, an idea that has evolved over time however the fundamental principle hasn’t changed. To live in a world more personally and business aware, leaving a positive impact on others whilst creating a more fulfilled life.
