ABOUT ME

Heya, I’m Daan van der Wiele.

 

I am a Digital Project Manager currently employed at VEON, one of the biggest Telco’s in the world, who are currently working on shifting from Telco to Tech. All projects and initiatives that I work on have one thing in common; they all focus on the shift to Digital.

 

With a background in Data, Communications and Digital Media and a personal passion for Technology and Innovation I am the perfect fit for any company. If you are looking to build a digital-first team, strategy and ecosystem from the ground up, if you are looking to revise an existing architecture or if your company is running everything they do in the digital domain and you only need a sanity check, I am your man.

 

What are you waiting for?

COMMUNICATOR

 When you want to get things done, the most important thing is to make sure you communicate effectively. I am the bridge between all important stakeholders, making sure everyone understands eachother, no matter the topic.

TECHNOLOGY & DATA DRIVEN

 Technology and data are the basis for any decision. This means you need someone that understands both, and can get this across to anyone. Having been in data for multiple years and being highly interested in technology since the age of 10, these things are the heart of everything I do.

DIGITALIZATION

The Digital world is everywhere. Being a digital native, this entire domain comes very natural to me. If you don’t invest in the Digital domain, you are bound to be left behind. I help people and companies make that shift, not just by developing and launching Digital solutions, but also by increasing their skill- and mindset.

INNOVATOR

The Digital world is constantly moving. Making sure to constantly increase your knowledge and skills boosts your power to be Innovative. I am constantly looking for new ways of working, solutions and platforms to be as efficient and fast as possible, to make sure I am always on the forefront. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

Experience

  • KPN

    Social Insights Analyst

    2014 – 2015

  • VEON

    Digital Communications Analyst

    2016

  • VEON

    Global Digital Project Manager

    2017 – 2018

As the only Social Analyst at KPN i primarily focus on scoping, analyzing and portraying (narrowcasting solutions) Social data from different sources, varying from Salesforce (Radian 6 and Social Command Center) products to sources like Omniture and Oracle. Other key responsibilities are translating these pieces of data into actionable insights generating value for process-, change- and chain-management and creating valuable insights to be the base of strategic decisions.

In my eyes Social Data is the key to making a company more customer minded and relevant, making a Social Analyst irreplaceable in the entire structure of a company. Our Social Team at KPN played a major part in the transformation to a truly digital company, starting with key metrics, definitions and reports. After laying the foundation innovation projects started popping up (like some of the added projects).

As part of the Global Corporate Communications team of VEON (previously known as VimpelCom) my role as (Digital) Communications Analyst focused on various areas. Initially being part of the Digital Communications team, reporting to the Director of Digital Communications, our primary role was to create a world class Digital Communications department, including a groupwide strategy focusing on best in class digital solutions, measurement and analytics as well as the translation of the group strategy to Social and Digital Media.

In the first two months my deliverables included a Corporate Communications measurement and analytics framework, as well as the introduction of ROI focused measurement in all markets, including constantly adjusting campaigns where and when needed based on data. I also initiated and project managed the selection, implementation and rollout of Salesforce Social Studio (Marketing Cloud) for HQ, followed by the rest of the group.

The months following my role got broader and broader, as I started work on various digital and technology driven projects (selection, implementation and rollout) including various projects around the rebrand from VimpelCom to VEON. This resulted in a formal role switch the Digital Project Manager after a reorganisation of the Corporate Communications team.

After the reorganisation my role in the team focused more and more on managing the entire Digital Communications domain and I became part of the decision making process for all digital and technology related projects, while still working on various other projects in the organisation where and if needed.

In the new Comms team i fully ran/setup/initiated the Digital Signage project (setting up Digital Signage for our London and Amsterdam offices, with a potential to extend to our other offices), wrote and initiated a strategy for digital ownership and digital presence, the VEON microsites (including front and backend as well as analytics and new functionality), the Internal/External Mass Mail solution and wrote & initiated a new global intranet strategy (including the migration of the old intranet and the setup and creation of a brand new intranet, with different focus areas).

Even though my role is part of the Comms team, the real power of a Digital Project Manager is to jump on Digital/Technology driven projects that hit multiple departments while none of them wants to take true ownership. Making sure that all involved parties understand the exact requirements and are constantly onboard with the developments requires a technology and digital savvy (back-end) person who understands really understands and is able to translate the business need (front-end).

Testimonials

  • Daan is an extremely bright person, with great ideas for providing solutions to problems. He is a team player, very focused on delivering business results across the company, taking ownership and accountability over the projects he is involved in.

    His technical background and digital savviness completes his package. He is that proactive colleague from the other department you would always want to work with when you have a critical task or project you need to get done !

    Mario Procopio Director of Cyber Security at VEON
  • "Daan was part of my team at KPN, responsible for social reporting, providing structural and incidental in-depth social analysis, and connecting available social data to relevant customer data. Daan was also active as analyst, looking for ways to optimize our social operation.

    I know Daan as a extremely dedicated professional, with great passion for his job and responsibilities. Daan is the type of guy that gets an answer before you have even asked him the question. Next to that, Daan is fun to work with, also a great team player, always looking for ways to get our team performance on a higher level."

    Sebastiaan van Rijnsoever Strategist & Partner at N-1
  • "Daan was part of the social media journey at KPN in his role as Social Insights Analyst, working with eg. Salesforce Radian6. His role was vital in defining and implementing a key metrics framework and translating the framework into reporting and actionable insights. Based on which we could direct and improve the webcare organization as a whole.

    He's an amiable guy, good team player and a pleasure to work with!"

    Boudewijn Wildeman Partner at VANEIGENS
  • When it comes to getting the job done, Daan is the man! I’ve had the pleasure of working with Daan on several projects, including a rebranding and a couple app launches.

    I am always impressed by Daan’s eagerness to find solutions to the toughest of problems, I admire how he solves the trickiest issues with such ease.

    Tiffany Paull App guru at VEON
  • "It is rare that you come across standout talent like Daan. I got to know Daan when he applied with us for the job of Webcare agent. Already within a few months he showed he was capable of so much more. His analytical skills are outstanding and he understands the art of communication. I am particularly impressed by the way he is able to adjust in every group. Without any doubt or nerves he is able to present to the board of directors and manages to level with them in a natural way. He earned great respect within our organization by not only doing this with the board of directors but with lots of others.

    He and his remarkable curly hear will be missed once he leaves our department. Not only because of the fact that whenever there is a technical problem we immediately turn to Daan. And I for one hope to work with him for many years to come. But I know you have got to let them go, unfortunately. If you’re the one thinking about hiring him, don’t hesitate. You won’t regret it."

    Annemarie Smabers - Luijk Manager Digital & Marketing Communications at KPN
  • Having worked with Daan while I was heading the Operating company comms function and then having worked with him directly while st VEON I found Daan to display 2 key professional characteristics - teamwork and a can-do attitude.

    No task is too difficult or impossible for this digital and comms professional. From designing the future roadmap of the group corporate engagement platform or finalizing negotiations on a comms delivery tool, Daan would work towards finding a solution that was beneficial to both client and customer. Also his exposure to a multicultural environment makes him suitable to work in dynamic and growing enterprise.

    He performs well under pressure situations and thrives in both a structured and unstructured work environment. The transformation at VEON allowed him to exceed expectations on all his tasks and objectives while I worked with him throughout 2017. I believe he would be an asset to any company that he works in.

    Omar Manzur Director Internal Communications at VEON
  • Daan is great. Professional, dedicated, focused, loyal and delivers what he says he will on time with high quality. Daan has a good balance of knowledge between commercial + technology and is very well suited for a product, commercial or communications role within a Digital or Technology oriented function.

    I will probably try to steal Daan from wherever he's working in the next Digital/Technology team I build.

    Christopher Archer Global Director of Online Channels at VEON
  • Daan is an incredibly dedicated, proactive and effective person to work with.

    Working with Daan has been great, as you can always rely on him to do the job well and help you on anything you need. No problem is unsolvable for him.

    Was very happy to work with Daan on numerous projects that he really helped to take further every time.

    Ivan Slobodin Reporting & Insights Analyst at VEON
  • I have worked with Daan on several digital communication projects for the Global Veon Group. Daan is a true communications specialist that stands out with his great vision and professionalism. I was impressed by his achievements and the way he can work on all levels of the organisation to achieve the ambitious goals he sets for himself and the entire group.

    Daan has the ability to use new technology swiftly, adopt to ever changing needs and set the pace for others to follow. He has an amazing drive and passion for his projects and is otherwise just a great guy to work with.

    Johan Huigen IT Director at VEON
  • Tijdens mijn werkzaamheden op de KPN Social media hub werk ik veelvuldig samen met Daan. In samenwerking trachten wij er voor te zorgen dat de social data accuraat is, dat er goede analyses tot stand komen, dat de KPN organisatie meer social minded wordt en dat de data die wij vergaren op de juiste manier én bij de juiste personen landt.

    We sparren veel met elkaar en halen daarmee vaak het beste in elkaar naar boven. Het is zeer fijn om met Daan samen te werken. Hij is analytisch sterk, weet wat hij wil en kan beslissingen prima beargumenteren.

    Jelle Hendriks Partner at VANEIGENS
  • "Bij KPN heb ik twee jaar samengewerkt met Daan. Hij is van unieke waarde in elk team: Daan doorziet complexiteit snel, legt verrassende verbanden, denkt buiten traditionele kaders en is een pragmaticus - niet vanzelfsprekend voor iemand die dagelijks met abstracte data en informatiesystemen werkt. De oplossingen die hij aandraagt zijn zonder uitzondering efficiënt en getuigen van zijn goede gevoel voor innovatie, waarbij hij te allen tijde oog heeft voor de relevantie van zijn ideeën ten opzichte van de bedrijfsdoelen. Daan verraste mij vaak: hij was vaak al twee stappen verder dan ik iedereen dacht en geeft daarbij blijk dat zorgvuldig handelen wel degelijk kan zonder ´scope screep´ in een project. Vindt ook makkelijk zijn weg in een matrixorganisatie, en werkt succesvol en zonder ingewikkeld gedoe samen met collega´s uit alle echelons.

    Daan is duidelijk intelligent, maakt zich dingen snel eigen. Een zeer sociale collega met een prettig karakter die op eigen initiatief altijd dat stapje extra zet in de samenwerking. Ik durf te stellen dat iedere organisatie zich mag verheugen om hem in dienst te hebben, omdat sommige collega´s nu eenmaal van grotere meerwaarde zijn dan de middenmoot.. en Daan steekt er met kop en schouders bovenuit!"
