I'm focusing on major transformations at his partners and their clients to be able to bring the best of IBM in front of them. To this extent, I'm entertaining relationships with C-level executives, senior managers, architects, analysts and IT specialists to make sure the solutions developed meet the needs of the different stakeholders. Lately I'm especially looking at how the new cognitive capabilities introduced by IBM, aka Watson, can help his partners and clients to move into the next era of computing and further evolve their business model and client experience.

At the same time, I'm the advocate of these partners and clients inside of IBM making sure the best possible solution and value are being defined for them.

- Help Enterprises to develop and implement their Cognitive Strategy to stay ahead of the disruption while meeting their clients' ever growing needs and expectations.
- Senior Relationship management, concentrating on closing the gap between business and IT enabling both worlds to understand each other and bring the most value to both of them.
- Based on prior experience: developing and managing complex websites, both from a communication and a sales perspective.

I had an interview on Watson on Kanaal Z:
and Trends on the next generation of banking supported by AI: (interviews in Dutch)
