What's in the name?

D1 Consultancy was founded by Astrid Deen in 2010. A 'D' and a '1' may be read as 'Done' in English, in Dutch it is read as 'Deen'. Together with the Consultancy, the name was born.

To date D1 Consultancy is still a one (wo)man company with the same ambition as it was founded with:
deliver quality projects, first time right.

With a steady growing network D1 Consultancy is able to get support from other consultants when needed.
