In November 2017 I decided to quit my job at my employer and start working as a a 100% independent freelance consultant. Exciting? Absolutely, but I have all the confidence that my knowledge and network are extensive enough to get me new and exciting projects.
My area of expertise is Microsoft cloud technology, in particular Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement. This is the business application formerly known as Dynamics CRM. I have been working as consultant in this area since 2010.
As many more from my generation, I grew up in a time where technology became more and more important in our daily lives. I’ve always had a great interest in technology; how things work, why they work in that particular way and how they can be improved to make our lives a little bit easier.
Technology should serve mankind and not the other way around. I’m always looking for improvements. Very often that involves technology, but at least as important is the human side. The combination of technology and mankind fascinates me. I believe that is also where my strength is. During my study Business & IT at the Twente University I obtained profound knowledge about technology (systems design and architecture, programming) and organization (business administration, process analysis, managing skills) as well. I’m comfortable around IT and people.
In the past few years I’ve been applying this in my job as Dynamics 365 Consultant; implementing Microsoft Dynamics 365 (previously Microsoft Dynamics CRM) at a great number of different companies and organizations. Because of this, I have obtained great knowledge of the application, what it can do and what its limitations are. I’ve been involved in over 30 projects, varying in size, scope and complexity. Always striving for the best possible result for the customer, within the project scope. Because of my technical background, I’m also capable determining the right technical approach, using standard techniques where possible to prevent complex custom coding and resulting in hard-to-manage solutions. Furthermore, I’d like to thing of myself as precise, pragmatic, patient and not afraid to ask questions or admit that I’m wrong.
I’ve been involved in projects in a lot of different roles as well; from solution architect to developer, from analysis to execution, from pre-sales to aftercare and from trainer to lead consultant and project manager. Besides that, as a Senior Consultant, I’ve been coaching and guiding my junior colleagues into (hopefully) great consultants.
In December 2017, I made the decision to start working as Freelance Dynamics 365 Consultant and Developer. Would you like to know more about me? On the Contact page you’ll find all the information you need to get in touch!
