The idea of Walking with RD’s is that we provide a monthly videocast to you where we as the RDs in the Netherlands will go for a walk (because that’s one of the typical things we all do in these COVID times) and talk about a business-related topic. During this walk, we share our insights and discuss the challenges and opportunities we have faced during our career in the hope this provides valuable insights to you.

This First episode introduces the RD’s in the Netherlands and introduces the Regional Director program which is not always know to everyone in the Microsoft ecosystem.

In the Netherlands we are with five Microsoft regional directors: Sjoukje Zaal, CTO at Capgemini, Maarten Goet, Director at Wortell, Andre Carlucci, Global Director of Application Engineering at Kinley and Maarten Eekels Chief, Digital Officer and Managing Partner at Portiva and myself.

You can read more about the Microsoft Regional Director Program here, the short summary is here below:

“The Regional Director Program provides Microsoft leaders with the customer insights and real-world voices it needs to continue empowering developers and IT professionals with the world’s most innovative and impactful tools, services, and solutions.”

The topic we discuss in this episode is:

Working from home’ while still performing. How do we deal with this and what has worked very well for ourselves and the teams we work with.

This walk gave me also some new insights into how we can work from home and help and support our teams to stay healthy and sane. I really hope you will enjoy this episode and please let me know if you have additional tips and trick you would like to share, so we can all learn from each other and come out of this pandemic better than when we started. Hope you enjoy this episode and please share additional insights you might have with us as well.

And I want to thank Maarten Goet for arranging the creation of the leader and edit of this video!
