My name is Francisco Perez. I'm born in the most beautiful village of Holland (Heemskerk) on December 19, 1976. I married my first girlfriend Marjolein and we now have three beautiful daughters Lisa, Anne and Suus.
I started my IT career in 1996 when I was 18 years old. After a few years we worked for two different consultancy companys and we decided to start our own IT consultancy company. But one a different way! ITQ set out to gather a group of consultants with a shared passion for technology to proudly work on the best IT infrastructure projects. That’s how ITQ has come to prove that when a business is founded on passion, enthusiasm, collegiality and concession-free quality, success will follow.
Now, I did not study marketing, but I try to read about it and understand it as much as possible. I created this blog to share our experience with anyone interested, because at ITQ we believe in knowledge sharing: we think power is gained by sharing knowledge, not hoarding it. My co-writer Bertwin has no marketing background as well. But. That is why we are not bothered by existing conventions and are open-minded about everything. We think more creatively and out-of-the-box. And, we do have some common sense 😊
My personal habit plan for a successful entrepreneur and person!
Habits... Everyone has them. I’m not an expert, but I do know I have them: both positive and negative. A few years ago, I spoke to someone who coached me, because I felt I was having too much trouble with conflict-avoiding behaviour, especially in certain situations. During a couple of long walks (which I love anyway), she taught me a few things.
This year, I was invited to join Jenni Flinders (global Chief Channel VMware) on the mainstage during the keynote of the partner day, and participate in a short Q/A session on a few topics. When I got invited, I immediately replied with an enthusiastic YES, only to realize a moment later I would have to speak in front of a few thousand people... That part aside, WHY was I actually so enthusiastic to participate?
