After abusing our walls with post-its & mistreating our glass windows with adhesive tape, we finally decided to buy a whiteboard to mistreat. And since Simon, the treasure hunter, Bronders loves 2nd hand hunting, he was in charge of giving us what we needed.
After three weeks of the Facebook marketplace, we found an ideal donor whiteboard in sunny Zedelgem. This trip brought an unexpected & inspiring talk with the owner of Pleisterwerken verhelst.
Wouter, the owner, told us his life story and how he ended up with a business of 40 people in the plastering business. His main competitive advantage? Standardized Operating Procedures
(SOPs). That means that Wouter is constantly on the look for how to work smarter instead of harder, and he does so by using his own tailor-made software package.
He also hinted that data insights are one of his following projects on which he could use some help… So let’s keep this contact warm & start buying more 2nd hand whiteboards as our new sales approach.
