Front End Developer – Globis

I had the privilege to work for Tom at FunkyTime and enjoyed it very much. He taught me so much in such a short period of time. His years of experience in IT and Customer Success Management is something that will always give his team members a boost and huge knowledge base to learn from.

Nelis Braems (BE)

Head of EMEA – Annex Cloud

Tom and I worked together for almost 2 years, starting up the Selligent branch in Munich. Like paratroopers we went into the jungle and survived extremely successful. Tom had the pioneer spirit to get his team started, keep them motivated and go all the way. Very persistent, sometimes stubborn but always with solid product knowledge and customer success focus.

When working with Tom I found his enthusiasm contagious. Not only is he dedicated to the project and a success driver, but he is also a great communicator.

Keynotes

I originate from a drama family. On all branches of my family tree you will find professional actors, just actors and would-be actors. So, genetically I belong on stage. However, as an entrepreneur I shouldn’t I guess, because of other priorities. But quite honestly, I like sharing experiences, knowledge, my numerous failures and far less successes with a lot of passion and humour. Along the way you might have seen me @

  • DMA 2015 – New York (USA)
  • Dell Boomi World Tour 2017 – London (UK)
  • Pulse 2018 – London (UK)
  • Engage 2019 – Paris (FR)
  • Altares 2020 – Paris (FR)
  • Dun & Bradstreet 2020 – Kaatsheuvel (NL)

Nowadays you will find me sharing my views and vision on Digital Transformation of organisations and how Customer Success Management is key for any business in today’s subscription and recurring revenue-based economy. All of which is reflected in 2 key notes:



1. Digital Transformation is Cooking!


  • An entertaining keynote how digital transformation is also about transformation and not just technology.
  • How the difficult part in digital transformation is often human and not digital. Why it’s important to make the psychology fit the technology.
  • What pitfalls you might encounter when building a digital transformation journey within your organisation.
  • How your organization can successfully take a digital transformation and built the customer journey of the future.
  • Why digital transformation is cooking and tips & tricks on how to save the menu of your transformation.
  • Specifications:
    • Available online and in person.
    • 30 minutes motivational speech for a large audience or a full organisation.
    • 60 minutes in depth keynote for C-level and digital transformation professionals. More focus on strategic insights and best practices.




2. Customer Success today, yours tomorrow


  • A keynote that starts with the Salesforce success story and ends with Star Wars
  • A journey on how recurring revenue, subscriptions and empowered customers rule.
  • But above all a story that wakes up your organization for a new business model and how to get your team ready for tomorrow.
  • And why Darth Vader is customer success.



Both keynotes are available in English, Dutch, French and German, in a 30min and a 60min version for a 20 to 2000 people audience
