— Hello, I'm Chared. Here's
Hi, I'm Chared.
I use communication science to improve the sense of belonging in the workplace.
A journalist-turned-communication professional, I have 20+ years of experience in storytelling, external & internal communication. I bring with me a diverse portfolio that spans continents & industries having worked on projects with the United Nations, European Commission, Booking.com, Signify/Philips Lighting, international nonprofits, member-based life science organizations & news bureaus.
In 2021, I built Good Comms with the mission of creating a more inclusive world through effective communication. I now specialize in strategic inclusive communication and deliver belonging-focused workshops based on my own research & lived experience.
I hold an Executive MSc in Corporate Communication, MA in Development Communication & postgraduate certificates in internal and change communication. A certified transformational coach and LEGO Serious Play facilitator, I am dedicated to creating workplaces of belonging and positive social impact.
When not designing communication strategies or mnemonics, you’ll find me with my nose in a well-researched nonfiction on behavioural science and strengths psychology or charting ultralight travels with her family.
Born and raised in the Philippines, I live in South Holland, The Netherlands with my Dutch urban farmer husband & biracial son. I am fluent in English, Filipino and Dutch languages.
