M2M Global Business Development Manager at Vodafone
Startupbootcamp Smart City & IoT Amsterdam Mentor
Very old and battle-hardened entre- and intra-preneur; I have worked in UK, France, Germany, Belgium and Netherlands as an aerospace engineer, corporate researcher, sales director, IT developer, new business account manager, internal consultant, managing director and CEO. I have started 5 companies (4 of which failed, 1 was sold profitably). I currently work in the M2M/Internet of Things space for Vodafone where I am responsible for Smart Home, Smart Building, Smart City and Security.
Top 3 Skills
1. People optimisation
2. Technical/Business Synergy
3. Value Analysis and Engineering
I like to work with, and mentor, startups as most have capabilities and opportunities that they are not aware of. By discussing and debating we can free up the additional value that is lying dormant in the project.
