“”The most satisfaction I get from setting my goal and ultimately achieving it!”

1. How do you start your working day?

I always start the day nice and early with exercise. After this, I have breakfast with a good strong Barista and get to work focusing on my schedule and call rounds.

2. What are your activities on a day?

My work mainly consists of networking and finding acceptors who want to join our gift cards. For instance, I mainly look for locations that want to accept our Locally Fresh gift card, the Ice Cream gift card the Ice Cream gift card and Verskado card.

In addition, I am busy winning other orders and projects. This is often balancing on the high wire as it is an intensive and precise task. Again, a lot of networking and approaching new prospects by phone. My Sales colleagues can then work out targeted proposals after a concise briefing from me.

3. Op welk project of eindproduct waaraan jij hebt bijgedragen ben je trots?

I am proud of the contracts we have been able to conclude with several wonderful clients. One of the most unique projects that have succeeded through my efforts is an exclusive contract we signed with Unilever and our Ice Cream Gift Card. I am also proud of our company Touch Incentive, which has seen tremendous developments and progress.

4. What makes your job so enjoyable?

I get the most satisfaction from the many different people I talk to. In this, it is wonderful to see that our gift cards are becoming increasingly successful and the numbers of acceptors are huge. Besides, giving up is not an option for me. I keep going until I reach my goal.
