Leo Houtman

Junior consultant

"Sinking your teeth into political and societal transitions, and taking ownership of them, constitutes a task that never allows for a dull moment."

Having started at Publyon in 2024 as a junior consultant, Leo focuses on political monitoring and strategic advice.

During his bachelor’s in History at Leiden University and his Master’s in International Relations at IBEI in Spain, Leo was actively engaged through various committies within student assocations. Subsequently, he participated in a trainee program at the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and gained working experience at the Dutch Embassy in Hanoi, Vietnam. These experiences have solidified his knowledge, curiosity and dedication to societal issues and transitions.

In his spare time, Leo periodically spends time with young adults who are distanced from the job market. Additionally, he enjoys cooking, reading historical books and can often be found in the cultural heart of Amsterdam.
