It’s our mission to empower companies to understand and act in consumers' favour by personalising their products and services. We are gurus in consumer data science and want to show others that only if you put the consumer at the center of your organisation you can stay relevant for them. This is done by guiding companies in their data science maturity journey. Together with our clients we build customisable solutions that analyse consumer interactions and translate these into valuable individual experiences in all phases of the customer journey.
Could you tell us a bit more about your background?
My passion for data science was born during my study at the Tilburg University where I studied Econometrics. It still fascinates me how data can help to ease your day. Anyhow, this interest came in handy when I joined Building Blocks around 3.5 years ago as Strategy Manager. After a short field trip to the data science team of ASML I rejoined Building Blocks in April 2019 as Partner Manager. Currently, I’m fully focused on my most terrifying and fantastic task yet; leading Building Blocks into the Nordics. I made the decision to rejoin because at Building Blocks I have the opportunity to show others that implementing data science solutions in daily business doesn’t have to be complex or highly expensive. Where in my current role I can even extend this reach outside the Netherlands.
What are the challenges in building your business in a new country?
Starting some place new comes with challenges. Where to begin and where to look? It brings new market dynamics we still have to make our own. Especially in a country where we do not speak the native language and not yet fully understand all culture difference. Hence, one of our biggest challenges at the moment is getting in touch with the right people and know how to build strong relationships.
How can the Dutch Chamber support you in achieving your goals?
We would love to connect with people who have experience doing business in Sweden, that can steer us in the right direction and get us started. Or anyone who loves coffee and a good conversation. I'm just looking forward meeting you all during the next event. Can’t wait until then? I'm always in for digital Fika. Please contact me via LinkedIn.
