Building up the expertise over the years in special properties is one aspect you need for a business however putting a team together that works, setting up all the structures is something else. The past 4 months have been ones of sleepless nights and loads of work but finally I see something emerging.
We and I really can say we have achieved to have the group working in 3 countries! The Netherlands, France and the United Kingdom.
It is weird when you take an existing business to the next level and especially international. It feels like a start up all over again. But I can say it does give energy, lots of energy! I have the luck to work with two experienced team members, one here right next to me in the Netherlands and one in France however how to get more creative blood into the company and to make something which can be seen as “boring” like old chateaus, passive homes a bit more “sexy”. We have found the answer in hiring a very young staff. 19, 20 and 22 years old the boys and girls do lack some experience but what a big bundle of energy we have in the offices! They come up with ideas and plans we would not have thought of!
The biggest compliment I got was for our new brochure! Produced in a short time totally from scratch I thought it looked good and was perfect however this one client mailing me back and asking which agency we used as this was so professional really made my day!
Yes it is challenging to work with a team this divers and spread out over several locations but I can proudly say it is my team!
So new year, new website, new projects. If you are interested please follow us on Linkedin or at our website www.orbisgroup.net
