My Profile

Welcome to the Strategic Analysis Services BV website and thus a bit to my digital home.  Any company is a shadow of its leader, but a small company like mine certainly is. Hence, I hope it contributes to your assessing what you can expect from working with Strategic Analysis Services BV when you get the opportunity to get to know me a little bit better. As you will see below, I put and have put learning above all. Clearly, wherever I go I look for opportunities to create insights to improve myself but most of all the quality of decision-making of my customers. In my working with customers I apply three non-negotiables rules.

1. Your relation with me is a critical success factor

When there is no personal click between you and me from the start, let’s not waste each other’s time. I shall not try to work with you as customer without you benefitting from my passion for doing the work with and for you.

2. Your value is what I am after

During our investigating whether or not to work together I want to see the value I can create for you. When I don’t see your value, I shall not accept your order, because the work I’d be doing for you would not satisfy you in the end.

3. Experience is what you get

As a customer, you may ask anything. I will, however, only offer work that I am sure I can do to your full satisfaction, meeting my own high standards. When I work, it shall be in fields I truly master.

When it appeals to you to get a supplier that works guided by these rules, let’s connect and see what value we may create together.
