About Eric Bakker

“I am a firm believer of seizing opportunities to the max. Giving up is not in my dictionary. As we say in The Netherlands: ‘There is more than one road leading to Rome’. I am an optimist to my bone marrow and I use that quality to support entrepreneurs who want to make money. Doing that my service oriented attitude comes in handy. Somehow people I do business with recognize me especially for that characteristic. With years passing by I have learned to use it wisely. But deep down inside I would like to help everybody. Unfortunately time is sometimes a deal breaker.”

“A practical thinker, that’s what I am. Furthermore I have a good eye for the value of business relations. On top of that I have creative improvisation skills and I always keep track of the costs, with the interest of my customers in mind. Elaborating on that aspect I benefit highly from my studies business, marketing and psychology. Psychology, I studied mainly to get a deeper insight in human with the eventual goal to motivate my employees as much as possible to use their personal skills to the most. At first I was very aware of the techniques I adapted. Now it has become a second nature. And it helps me profoundly to understand the needs of our customers better.”

“I guess you could typecast me as a serial entrepreneur. I started my own technical recruitment agency, supplying engineers on a temporary base, in the beginning of this century. Even then I was convinced that the internet had a great future ahead. The world wide web is so much more than information source or means to communicatie. The net is also a way to earn money. In my opinion it looks almost as if it was designed to generate leads and increase turnover.
