At the beginning of the new year and with great pride we announce that Glocalities has become a separate company called “Glocalities International B.V.".
The Glocalities program uses the experiences and values of international audiences as its starting point. The program has everything in place to help clients in making the right choices to be able to grow in a challenging international playing field. We advise many leading multinationals, NGOs and governments with fact-based insights in the areas of positioning, dealing with cultural differences, communications, and (digital) marketing.
Thanks to the rich Glocalities database, the fast-growing team of 12 international experts, and our international experience and publications in media worldwide, we have established a solid base for our further development in the world market. The Glocalities philosophy – “Step into the shoes of your audience” – builds on the success of Mentality research in the Netherlands and responds to the rapidly changing international demand for cross-cultural knowledge and advice. We believe that strategic and tactical insights must be ‘unlocked’ digitally, be visually appealing and offer practical input for activating target audiences. The unique “World of Glocalities” application makes all this possible, in combination with deep-dive analyses and consultancy.
The management team of Glocalities International B.V. consists of Pieter Paul Verheggen and Martijn Lampert. Motivaction and Glocalities are and will remain closely connected. The Glocalities team will remain at the same address as Motivaction in Amsterdam.
We look forward to further international growth with great confidence. Are you curious about our latest projects and how we can help you to push your limits and enter new markets? Feel free to visit our office for a cup of coffee and a chat!

International Values-Research of Motivaction Now Independent Company: Glocalities
Amsterdam-based research agency Motivaction announces a new milestone: the international insights program Glocalities has become a separate company called Glocalities International B.V. The new company focuses on facilitating international growth with in-depth insights into the values and lifestyles of international target groups.
Pieter Paul Verheggen (CEO Glocalities & Motivaction): “Five years ago, Motivaction took the first serious steps towards creating the Glocalities research program, an international podium for values and lifestyle based research and marketing communications. Since then, there are numerous clients who use our insights to serve international audiences successfully, and to enter new markets. Over the past years, in context of Glocalities research, more than 165,000 people from 27 countries have been questioned in depth about values, lifestyles, trends, consumption behavior, sustainability and cultural differences: from Sweden to South Africa and from China to Canada. By placing the Glocalities program in a separate company, we can give even more attention to our clients and expect to be able to grow faster.”
Martijn Lampert (co-founder and director Glocalities) explains: " The Glocalities philosophy is ‘Step into the shoes of your audience’. Our international research builds on the success of the Mentality research program in the Netherlands and taps into the rapidly increasing international demand for cross-cultural knowledge and advice in the field of marketing, policy and communication. Strategic and tactical insights must be ‘unlocked’ digitally, be visually appealing and offer practical input for activating target audiences. The unique World of Glocalities application makes all this possible in combination with in-depth analyses, consultancy and tailor-made research."
Glocalities uses the experiences and values of international audiences as its starting point. Thanks to cross-cultural insights from the rich Glocalities database and a rapidly growing team of experienced international experts, Glocalities advises many leading multinationals, NGOs and governments in the field of positioning, dealing with cultural differences, communication and (digital) marketing. Examples of Glocalities-research are contributing to the development of a sustainability strategy for Unilever, a study on financial ‘empowerment’ for ING, a study on the public awareness of extreme poverty with Global Citizen in context of Nelson Mandela's centenary, and worldwide research on millennials and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Many Glocalities reports, for example about Trump, Nike and China, are freely available at http://www.glocalities.com/reports.
Currently, twelve consultants and data analysts are active at the new organization. The management team of Glocalities International B.V. consists of Pieter Paul Verheggen and Martijn Lampert. Motivaction and Glocalities are and will remain closely connected as part of Motivaction International Holding (MIH), and both companies are operating under one roof at the Marnixkade in Amsterdam.
