MY PASSION

“My entire life, I have been combining technology with sales & marketing. I love to solve the complex puzzle of matching technology with unknown and future market needs, and I get passionate when I have to define a strategy to get an entire organisation enthusiastic about creating value for clients.”

MY BELIEF

“I believe businesses can and should be relevant to society. I also believe this is not even difficult. Let’s start with a strategic client value and ensure that the entire organization (people & processes) are geared towards delivering such value to real clients. Then upwards define your social relevance, and you’ll be surprised how much easier the business becomes.”
