Welcome to DLA Consulting!

Welcome to my website. My name is Niek Alofs, and this is my company DLA Consulting. DLA Consulting is an independent consultancy firm that specializes in international business development, market entry support, and geopolitical intelligence. Based in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, DLA is a specialized consultancy agency with several years of international experience, both for multinationals as well as government agencies. As such, DLA Consulting offers an extensive range of services designed to help your organization realize its international ambitions.

Note: I am not available for any assignments until early 2019. 

About the founder

My name is Niek Alofs, and I am an experienced government affairs professional with work credits for international organizations such as the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Heineken International, Royal Philips and Dutch regional government (East Netherlands Development Agency).

I am passionate about learning new things about the world, and I am dedicated to learning about new cultures and ideas. I am a creative, independent thinker who loves to tackle complex issues. I am passionate about learning. I am excited about getting to know as much as possible about the world, and the way things are connected. Therefore, I studied (political) history at the Radboud University and obtained a master’s degree (MSc) in International and European Politics from the University of Edinburgh, one of the leading Universities in the United Kingdom.

Working for leading organizations with a substantial international presence such as the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Heineken, and Philips, I felt immensely privileged to work within these networks and to learn how to become a government affairs professional. I want to share my knowledge and experience with others, in particular for SME-companies, startups as well as research facilities, to help them navigate the world and achieve their international ambition.
