My name is Berna Bakker, and I am the inspirer and realizer of new retail and hospitality concepts.

From a Marketing Management education to becoming a Concept Realizer, I have over 16+ years of experience as a high-quality Project Manager. From the very first sketch on the drawing board to closely overseeing construction, it is familiar territory for me. I have had the opportunity to open approximately 50 new and renovated stores, ranging from trendy boutiques for cosmetic brands and fashion stores to cozy coffeehouses and stylish takeaways.

Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with renowned concept agencies and leading A-brands, and I am rightfully proud of that. Projects for NS Retail, AH to go, HEMA, Mooi Parfumerie, Rituals, Sissy Boy, Paperchase, and NS StationsHuiskamer are some of the beautiful projects I have been part of.

Recently, I returned to Utrecht with my family after a 4-year adventure in London. This has not only provided me with valuable experience in the Retail world but also an Interior Design Qualification.

With the experience and knowledge mentioned above, I understand the rapidly changing retail and hospitality sector well. Therefore, I have developed a Concept Realization Program specifically for ambitious entrepreneurs and managers in Retail and the Hospitality industry.

With my 6-month program, you can expect a seamless execution of your ideas, from start to finish. As your dedicated Concept Realizer & Project Manager, I ensure that your concept becomes a reality within the specified budget, agreed timeline, and with the highest quality.

Let’s collaborate to bring your ideas to life and leave a lasting impression on your customers. I am also available for Project Management assignments and organize Inspirational Tours in London.
