How do you keep your company relevant in this competitive market?

  • How do you make sure that your turnover, profits and productivity continue to grow steadily, even if market conditions deteriorate?
  • Is your company still adaptable enough for the next crisis?
  • Does your company still appeal to talented employees?
  • Margins are under pressure and profits are not growing as fast as expected.
  • Rising costs caused by higher wage costs, higher raw material prices as well as higher energy and transport costs.

Cultivating decisive organisations with committed employees.

For many years now, your organisation has been providing high quality products and services.

The difficult years of the economic crisis have been behind you for some time already. Soon enough, your turnover will be on the rise. You dare to dream once more about further extending your business operations, relocating to new, larger business premises, expansion to other countries. And if at all possible, you would like to hire new talented employees too.

Although the consequences of the crisis are all still fresh in your mind. At best, turnover and profit stagnated back then, yet far more often you saw wonderful companies fall by the wayside and close their doors. Or make substantial cutbacks, whereby many employees lost their jobs.

However, as an experienced manager you know that many companies are suffering from increasing competition.

Flourishing with committed employees.

The most common reaction of companies operating in a very competitive market is to lower their prices. How Iong can you keep that up?!

You can’t become the Lidl of your industry, you don’t have the organisational structure in order to implement this business model successfully.

If you still want to remain relevant as an organisation, then aside from high-quality products and services, you will above all need your employees to be enterprising.

Employees who like to go that extra mile for customers and colleagues. Salespeople who jump at opportunities and don’t wait for their boss to tell them what to do. Production employees who are proud to be able to work as efficiently as possible.

A company culture where people laugh a lot every day, and where new and talented people are eager to work.

In short, a decisive, adaptable and successful organisation where everyone in the company enjoys working, including yourself as manager. Where your customers and employees are the ambassadors of your club.

Especially in this tight labour market, it is essential to establish and maintain a good standing as an employer. I pay a lot of attention to this in my approach.

You are probably thinking: “That sounds too simple to be true?!”

At your place, the daily intractable practice looks different. You are already happy that you are able to find and keep enough people on board to do the work.

Let’s keep it simple. You can just hire me for that.

With over 25 years of successful experience in commercial and managerial positions with Profit & Loss final responsibility. I have very often been employed as a change manager for the implementation of reorganisations, improvement processes and business unit mergers. With the aim to make the business more customer-oriented, productive, cost-effective and profitable.

Although time and again each situation differed in terms of complexity, my no-nonsense approach has without a doubt proven to be successful and effective.

My view is that the success of customer focus revolves around the establishment of a spirit of entrepreneurship among your employees.

I prefer to do this within a senior executive management role with a commercial profile in the manufacturing industry, B2B, as well as the building materials sector and trade. At international groups, mid-sized enterprises or family businesses.

Available for projects, interim-assignments and/or permanent contract.

My approach leads to greater customer satisfaction, more profit and an enterprising, decisive and future-proof organisation with committed employees.
