Creative Business Developer at Hewlett-Packard B.V.

Startupbootcamp Smart City & IoT Amsterdam Mentor

I have more than 20 years of experience within the IT industry and have been the Creative Business Developer at Hewlett-Packard for the past 4 years. Before Hewlett-Packard, I was an employee of BT, KPN and also of startups like Nltree and QMagic within the Marketing, Sales and Management sectors. Passion for customers, willing to win, out of the box, focus on achievable solutions and ideas; in practise, not theory. Above all: networker!

Skills: Business Development, Marketing, content creation, building networks, identifying key trends & new market and business opportunities, alert to potential threats, results-oriented and I always try until I succeed.

Top Skills
1. Entrepreneurship, out of the box, focus on new business opportunities
2. Active in the community internal and external
3. Marketing & Sales

Sharing my knowledge and experience will work both ways. As I assist startups to focus on their overall objectives, business development, marketing and sales, I get inspired with their new ideas, beliefs and enthusiasm. My first advise: expect problems along your way, but eat them for breakfast!
