Fleur van Wely, CEO NextSales

Today NextSales helps multinationals expand their business in Europe through its EU-wide network of senior executives: The NextSales Ambassador Network.
A short bio: Fleur’s parents owned a petrol station, but she dreamt of becoming a flight attendant. However, after completing high school, she agreed to work at the station as her parents needed help, but optimistic Fleur saw this as an opportunity to learn. She learned how to hire, train, and lead a B2C business team besides performing other duties. In 2003, when her parents sold the petrol station back to Shell, Fleur started her marketing management education. After graduating, she started working at a sales outsourcing company to learn the tricks of the B2B business.
Fleur: “My personal goal, apart from preparing, eating, and sharing food, is to share my experiences with and train others to become better at sales. I am currently working on a project with one of our ambassadors in Luxembourg that aims at training students to become entrepreneurs.“
