It’s been three weeks since I started working at Cleverwood as a trainee, time for a lookback and self-evaluation!
After a first introductory week, I was soon given the opportunity to contribute to presentations for key clients and prospects, design infographics and visuals, write blog posts, fiddle with code, and exercise tons of other activities.
It sure does look overwhelming at first, but with the online collaborative tools Cleverwood uses, the great team and excellent follow-up by operations manager Jochen, task, time and project management are a breeze.
To kick off our 2014 #appslunch sessions, we explored the world of mobile banking and tested 5 Belgian mobile banking apps. Our approach was to test the apps only on mobile devices – no tablets – focusing on the Big Five: KBC, ING, AXA, Belfius and BNP Paribas (we did not include Hello Bank). Next to the Big Five we took a look at Keytrade Bank to see how a smaller bank compares to the big ones but – because of its different focus (online, business, investments) – we did not include this bank in the infographic comparison. Have a look at our infographic for a comparison and read our extensive impressions below.
Almost a year ago, I was happy to write a post to welcome Jerry Hamal aboard as he was joining our adventure, today I’m happy to change the title of this post a bit and his title on the business card to welcome a new partner to the Cleverwood Board.
It all began in 2008
Back in 2008, in the very beginning of Cleverwood, when I started prospecting for the first clients, I remember sending a prospecting email to a few people selected on LinkedIn based on their title. Jerry was one of them and replied the day after, I still have the email (at that time we were not yet a #zeroemail company ) and he became one of Cleverwood’s #happyclients. In Belgium there is an expression that I really like: we say that there can be a clic (klik) between people, a first good impression or a nice experience.
