It was a pleasure to work with Bart Bols from Business Markers. Bart quickly adapted to the specific needs and challenges of Top-Jumps.

Not easy in the international niche market of equestrian events. In a co-creative and pragmatic way, we have worked out a strong strategic plan together. With a very positive result, mainly due to a consistent follow-up.

Liesbeth Moens

CEO & Co-owner Top-Jumps


The Business Markers rocket export model and Bram's expert advice, really helped us determine a clear international strategy and action plan for Verhofsté's bike mobility solutions, steel constructions and public toilets.

My team and I use it on a regular basis as a pragmatic checklist for an effective implementation.

Working with Business Markers was a very good experience for us. We were guided through our workshop in a structured way and with a visible thread.

The understanding, the picking up and recognition of the topics that were important for us by Business Markers was one of the cornerstones for a successful cooperation.

In addition, I find it very positive that we had the feeling that were not left alone after the workshop. 

I will definitely plan and implement our future workshops with Business Markers together.

We did an OGSM exercise with Business Markers 3 years ago, this helped us make the right strategic choices. This year, we decided to do the exercise again and adjust where necessary. OGSM helps our team understand the business objective and goals in a simple way, but at the same time gives clarity at the departmental level on who should do what, and by when.

Laurent Van Laere

CEO Herock


Formalising our OGSM with Lucia, Serge and the marketing and brand team was so impactful in driving alignment and clear communications across countries and functions, that it soon resulted in repeating the exercise on company level.


Since then the OGSM has been our key North Star in budget, project, town hall and work planning meetings.

Joost Vastenavondt

Chief Growth Officer


Under the pleasant guidance of Ides, we were able to redefine our strategic plan.

 The process we embarked on was far from easy, but everything went perfectly and we were able to develop many new ideas.

It was a special experience and we are very satisfied with the result: our teams are enthusiastic and eager to put the words into action.

Pascal Bertossi

In the run-up to the formulation of a new policy plan, it was enlightening and inspiring to bring together the strategic insights of our directors, with Bob's help, into a clear and concise concrete plan with clear objectives and allocated ownership.

Ambitie heeft een huwelijk met strategie nodig om een doel te bereiken. Om de juiste stappen in onze ambitie te zetten en strategie correct te bepalen, heeft ICN een “huwelijk” gesloten met Business Markers.

Kathleen Van den Meersche

Human Resources Manager ICN Development


Ides and Bob really helped us sharpen our strategic focus. Their contribution to our project is inspiring and supporting, while they remain a challenger to keep us on track. A top experience!

Eind 2020 zijn we de samenwerking gestart met Lucia Soetens van Business Markers en we hebben sindsdien baanbrekend werk verricht. Ze hielp ons van een duidelijke SWOT naar een visie met zijn klantenbelofte en de daarbij horende waarden. 

Over de samenwerking zelf heb ik alleen maar lovende woorden: helder, pragmatisch, juiste stappen in een proces, daad bij het woord, correcte opvolging, flexibiliteit in content en organisatie… en wat me vooral boeit en vertrouwen inboezemt is de honger en persoonlijke betrokkenheid van Lucia in ons traject.

Frank Penne

Managing Director Smurfit Kappa Drogenbos


In order to succeed in our growth ambitions as a start-up, we felt the need for a strategic framework that is easy to use and executable. We've got in touch with Business Markers and Bram guided us through the OGSM management tool, which we are using today. Furthermore, Bram's extensive experience in F&B export is of incredible value to us in order to make the right decisions. As a person, he is a good listener, very well-organized, transparent, and someone you can count on. Thanks for the work so far!

Felix Höfte

Co-founder & General Manager


Ik wil graag mijn waardering uitspreken voor de samenwerking met het Business Markers’ team. Stefan & Ides zorgden voor een zeer goede groepsdynamiek en naast duidelijke individuele objectieven ook een gezamenlijke missie voor alle  bedrijven van de groep. De projecten zijn goed op weg naar uitvoering, dankzij de gedragen project charters die door hen geïnitieerd werden. De OGSM's vormen een goede basis voor elk bedrijf en gaven snel inzicht in gemeenschappelijke acties. We blikken terug op een vruchtbare samenwerking en doen er alles aan om de positieve groepsdynamiek te behouden.

Maarten Bynens

Owner group INITIUM


To accelerate our export business we asked Bram to make a scan of the current way of working and develop a recommendation on how we could bring the business to the next level. Based on his experience, Bram onboarded very fast and came with a clear action plan to standardize value chain analysis, to implement best in class export contracts and to review way of working in some key markets. Excellent work to set-up our export business for the future. Thanks Bram and Business Markers!

Sara Decuyper

Director Sales & Marketing


Het strategisch traject dat we met Business Markers hebben doorlopen heeft ons opnieuw een 360 graden blik gegeven op onze groeiende organisatie. Hierdoor hebben we een duidelijkere structuur kunnen uittekenen binnen onze organisatie en kunnen we de focus houden op de zaken die echt belangrijk zijn.

Het traject heeft daarnaast een heel positieve impact gehad op het volledige team en was bovenal een leuke en motiverende oefening.

Een tevreden klant!

Together with the Business Markers Team, led by Frithjof, we have built a plan for our expansion activities in the DACH region.
