2014 – today
HePaDaQ SOLUTIONS in Hoensbroek.
As owner of this company, I am working in the entire Benelux.
This by, for example operating as an advisor for purchases and sales in various market segments or as Rep. Agent for different manufacturers and companies.
During my employment history, I have experienced that there is a lot of misunderstanding about long-term business.
Main problem : by increasing pressure from management at all levels in their sales organisation, they often believe they will get better results, but unfortunately this is not true.
If you don’t motivate, or explain and communicate, the opposite will happen in the entire company..
My motto is very simple:
Discuss and put on writing what you expect from everyone and make sure that you do as you promised.
Be honest if something is not possible, and communicate about this.
this to your customers as well as your employees.
