End of cold calls in sight

Without explicit permission, you will soon be prohibited from calling natural persons and therefore also from calling sole proprietors, partnerships and corporations. On February 9, 2021, the Senate approved "this bill t..

Taste

08 February 2021

I'm eating a herring. It's healthy, I'm told. Most of all, I find it delicious. I only have to close my eyes and the taste takes me back to that warm summer day at the beach. That fish tasted so good that you could daydr...

Cheating

08 February 2021

The Dutch and 'sticking to the rules': it doesn't seem to be a good match. We are 'corona tired', but is that also the reason why half of the Dutch people with complaints do not get tested? And that a quarter of the peop...

Great network

08 February 2021

We see that many entrepreneurs in the Netherlands are creative, continue to be creative and are becoming increasingly creative. That's what characterizes the Netherlands. They don't throw in the towel, they don't scrimp ...

An upside down year

22 December 2020

The year 2020 is almost over. An upside down year as my son says, who by the way also hung his Christmas tree on the ceiling to reinforce this. And we agree that it has been an upside down year. So many things that co...

The cleaning dilemma

16 November 2020

My daughter has new white trousers. A super trendy flare, for the winter; that's possible. There is a small stain on the thigh after the first time she wears them. She doesn't know what it is. Pen? Marker? Maybe mascara?...

No hygiene regulations can compete with this

16 November 2020

Hygiene is in the spotlight in these covid times. In fact, as far as I am concerned, the subject is finally getting the attention it deserves. The government is constantly calling on people to comply with hygiene regulat...

About guts, decisiveness and positivity

16 November 2020

Nobody failed to notice: there has been a shortage of test capacity for corona in the Netherlands for some time now. This is largely due to the way in which testing is organised. That's why our lab was increasingly appro...

Getting over the corona ditch together

16 November 2020

We back-up everything. It must be packed in 'the cloud' in the meantime. I see a rental company for storage boxes, every loft filled with beautiful stuff (data), but also with a lot of unnecessary junk. If something goes...

Warm contacts

16 November 2020

Are you already getting used to Teams? I am not. I don't think I'll ever get used to it; I'm still a people person.  We miss so many moments of personal contact with each other; both in private life and at work. ...

The grass is always greener next door...

12 October 2020

In my case, the above applies quite literally. Our lawn is a battlefield of various grasses, moss, dead spots and dandelions. The neighbours, on the other hand, can show off a tight, shortened, fresh green patch. Through...

Automation starts in your heart and your head

12 October 2020

Why start automating? Why choose to digitise? We often think about saving money or making your process less vulnerable. Thinking from the customer's point of view is better. What does the customer want and what do you ha...

Never become an expert

12 October 2020

The greatest poison in forward-thinking is experience. If you had been able to ask a coachman from the year 1900 about his dreams, he would have answered something like: "Give me a pair of horses that run four times a...

Robotisation: usefulness and necessity

12 October 2020

Food safety, in other words ensuring food quality, is crucial in the production and packaging of our food. Hygienic design, automation and robotics now play an essential role in this respect.  The food industry i...

Black Hole

12 October 2020

January, February, Quarantine, December; We laugh about it, but that's the way it is. From March onwards, many fell into a black hole and the rest of the year went by in a haze. With ups and downs, heavy declines in turn...

Discovery tours

14 September 2020

'Nothing new under the sun', was what I thought in June, at the start of my summer vacation. The corona crisis quietly muddled on. No big trip to unknown places. No unexpected encounters or new mountain hiking routes, no...
