Andries Brys - Participant 2017-2018

"Not only have I re-skilled and rebranded myself, but I am also better prepared for the challenges in the digital economy"

Role

Andries Brys helped establish a strategic marketing plan in the USA for Clickshare, Barco’s wireless presentation system by actively engaging with the sales and channel team.

Responsibilities

After an initial research phase, Andries primarily focused on a business plan for Barco’s ClickShare wireless presentation system. “My objective was to give a higher exposure to the ClickShare device in a larger number of meeting rooms, where a lot of visiting decision makers could experience this technology and interact with it”. He also added the videoconferencing solution, thus creating a complete ecosystem.

How he benefited

Andries strongly developed his project management skills. “I made specific recommendations in terms of product management and development, sales organizations and marketing based on extensive research. I thus gained a lot more experience in how to take on a large goal, divide in subtasks, and coordinate with others”, he explains. “This also means working with SMART goals, clearly defining a timeline and implementing a transparent follow-up system for everyone”.
