Welcome to my blog about leadership, digitalization and career development in b2b sales!

I'm a B2B sales professional with over 10 years' experience in various technical sales roles and as a business development and sales consultant for chemical start-ups. I'm currently leading a team of market developers for a chemical distribution company. I'm a graduate in Business and Economics as well as Chemical Engineering.

Why this blog?

Throughout my leadership career, I have noticed that many leaders or "managers" struggle to find the right approach with their teams or just generally to apply the right leadership style. That's why I want to share what I've learned and experienced along the way.

Another reason is the digitalization of sales across the industries. It is not only changing the whole game, it is disrupting the way we used to work in B2B sales. It is taking us and our business to a whole new level. I'd like to share some of the positive aspects and results of doing B2B sales digitally.

Last but not least, career development. I have noticed that many salespeople who want to take the next step into leadership do not really know how to do it. Many simply give up along the way. Here I would like to share some of my views on how best to approach the next step in your career.
