About us – Working Principles – History – Leadership – Sustainability
Our 10 year
So you want to know a more about us? Since its foundation 10 years ago (February 2011) NextSales supports companies in developing, building and maintaining sustainable business relationships within the Benelux and the rest of Europe.
Trust plays an important role in many European companies when it comes to establishing business relationships. In Europe a large part of the procurement process is handled through the Internet. However when it comes to bigger decisions a trusted business partner is very important.
Sales & Marketing Services & a Network supporting us
NextSales and the NextSales Ambassador Network
Since 2015, the NextSales Ambassador Network has developed into a thinktank with more than 220 members who support our clients in many more areas than Sales & Marketing.
NextSales Ambassador Network
The original idea behind the NextSales Ambassador Network was: Create a level playing field for SMEs.
If large multinationals want to increase their business with a client, they have the finances to engage lobbyists and advisors. Moreover, these companies can afford to pursue an opportunity for a long time.
SMEs often do not have this ability, while they often have more innovative solutions.
How we think
Our working Principles
Europe is not the US
The biggest mistake you can make when trying to do business in Europe is thinking that it is similar to the US.
In the Nordic countries these differences are perhaps not so big, but the moment you start descending from the Netherlands, you will be in another world. People prefer speaking their native language (which isn’t English) and are looking for business partners they know and trust.
One of NextSales added values is that we are already networked in these countries.

How NextSales supports sustainability
We support sustainability and the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (SDGs)
- During the execution of our assignments we work in a sustainable way. Think about responsible and above all less travel
- Companies and institutions that try to achieve the 17 objectives we offer our services on a “pro bono” or reduced rate basis
- Through our NextinVision initiative, we help companies turn the challenge of sustainability into opportunities!
We ensure minimizing our carbon footprint. We use as many modern means of communication as possible.We use teleconferencing and video conferencing to avoid travel.
If we travel we use public transport as much as possible.
Within Europe we prefer to take the train and avoid the plane.
