Ton van der Meer
Salesforce Lead Benelux
"If there is one team working 100% ‘In the New’ it’s our Salesforce team and I have the honor to have leadership responsibilities here. As part of my ambition I have committed myself towards employees, customers and partners to make each other successful while having fun.
As entrepreneur, I only want the best. As #1 partner for Salesforce we are playing Champions League! Yes, to stay on top will have its challenges, but with this winning team and all the knowledge we have we will continue dictating the market and make our dreams come true."
"I feel fortunate to be part of the exciting buildup of our team and have the privilege to lead it for Benelux. Although we are the biggest Workday partner globally, our team is down-to-earth, young, dynamic and without many organizational layers."
Working at Accenture DayNine
My career at Accenture started together with the Millennium. Due to the can-do culture, the challenging projects, the independence and especially the people, I still enjoy working here every day. The organization has grown, and we continue to change as does our environment, but the Accenture spirit and culture continues to motivate me to give my best every day.
What is Accenture DayNine
Starting from scratch, we grew our practice organically in the past years within Accenture. With the acquisition of a leading Workday boutique, DayNine, in 2016, we combined the best of both the Accenture practice and the DayNine practice in a new Global entity called Accenture DayNine.
Accenture DayNine feels like a start-up within a Global Firm! Many of our consultants in the global practice know each other personally either by working together, meeting up on events, training or by chatting on the dedicated Accenture DayNine Workday skype groups. Workday is a young company, expanding their footprint in HCM and Finance quickly in our client environment. So are we, we have a dedicated team that works together with clients to guide them through the transformation of their HR and Finance department into the New on a state of the art cloud-based platform.
Why do I love the work?
I feel fortunate to be part of the exciting buildup of our team and have the privilege to lead it for Benelux. Although we are the most prominent Workday partner globally, our team is down-to-earth, young, dynamic and without many organizational layers.
I love working with clients across all industries as this enables me to see many different organizations on the inside making me learn every day. The Accenture DayNine practice structure also offers real opportunity to travel abroad. At the same time because Workday is a Cloud solution it means working remotely is also possible.
I love working with my colleagues from different backgrounds and nationalities. I am always amazed at the drive we all share to make a difference for our clients, resulting in getting things done, resulting in a significant team spirit and a lot of fun. An example is an event in Amsterdam earlier this year, where we played an iPad enabled city game splitting up our team into two. Although I can never keep up these days, our people were running on the streets of Amsterdam to beat the other side for virtual points.
Implementing Workday and building our practice is what I chose to do now and it’s inspiring! However, this doesn’t mean it’s the only path to follow, during my career at Accenture I have done many other things as well, including software development, financial management, IT strategy and business process optimization, to name a few. Accenture is a place of many opportunities to learn and develop yourself in the direction you want to.
"I personally strongly believe in cultural diversity and how it truly enhances individuals, teams and organizations. Diversity offers teams the possibility to be more dynamic, and provides it with different insights needed for alternative and more balanced solutions."
"If anything is going to hold you back, it’s your own fears"
Innovation and entrepreneurship is at the heart of our business. The combination of NEW and taking calculated risks keeps me motivated to make impact and initiate change (regardless how small a change may be) within Accenture. In addition, I personally strongly believe in cultural diversity and how it truly enhances individuals, teams and organizations.
Diversity offers teams the possibility to be more dynamic, and provides it with different insights needed for alternative and more balanced solutions. It simply adds a whole different dimension to teams.
"I am 27 years, a woman and I work in a technology environment. Do I feel like any of this is to my detriment? Not really...''
‘When I tell people I am a Salesforce consultant, they often wonder if it’s very technical or, even worse, very boring.
But, contrary to popular belief, it’s not. I see every assignment as a puzzle that needs to be solved – some are very easy, others are extremely complex.
The great thing is that Salesforce always...
