April 1, 2016 marks three years since I actively joined g-company as a partner to build the Salesforce Practice. I look back with gratitude: the Salesforce team now consists of ten consultants who are doing and have done great projects for both profit and non-profit organizations.
I discovered that g-company is cool when I first spoke with David Saris. At that time I was still working at Capgemini as cloud-leader for Google and Salesforce and was looking for a partner in the field of Google Apps to work with. g-company stood out because of its innovative vision. I experience it as a privilege to work with David: inspiring such a visionary entrepreneur who understands the impact that technological development can have on organizations!
One of the nice aspects of g-company is ’the new collaboration’. We are a kind of synthesis of a partnership – a cooperative and a franchise organization – and we act like a guild, in a ‘high performance team’. Our mission is to empower people and organizations using new technology. To put it in David’s words:
That’s why we choose “born in the cloud” solutions from Google and Salesforce, innovative platforms: Salesforce for structured and Google for unstructured information.
My passion is to give shape to ’the new cooperation’ within a team. To empower each individual, to look for each other’s strongest points and to promote diversity. I am very proud of our team: everyone does what he or she is good at and complements the other on the less strong points. As a result, our common ability grows and the energy and enthusiasm increases. You do what you are good at and what makes you happy, and you get better and better at it.
