About Robbert: 

"It does not feel like working, if you do what you love most!"   

I have a hands-on /no nonsense approach with a focus on result. I believe in getting things done. I believe in long-term client relations and never go for the quick buck. If you want to be successful in sales, you have to show that you have added value for your clients.

I have a coaching management style and believe in the stimulation and motivation of staff, so they take more responsibility and grow together with the company they work for. Discipline also is a key success factor in getting the right sales DNA into an organisation.

I feel most at home in flat organisational structures, so that I can quickly adapt to an ever faster changing world. If you want to know more about me, please check out my LinkedIn page or fill in the contact form on this website, should you have any further inquieries.

Lets Face4ward together!
