Superb! Nice to chat with Guido and get some great ideas for the webshop.
Awesome session about a/b testing and persuasion. Guido is a true expert in the field and able to help you out in a practical way! Received a document with lots of tips as a bonus!
Guido gave a presentation regarding Magento E-Commerce at a 'lunch & learn' session at Oxilion (.nl). These are sessions where a training or presentation is given about changing subjects. I attended the session to get to know Magento better and know what ist's abilities are and whether it could be used for a future webshop for my company.
The presentation itself was very well designed, executed with both patience and humor and Guido made sure the audience kept involved and alert at all times. In the meantime, I managed to learn quite a lot from it too. I would recommend Guido as a speaker when it comes to Magento and especially when there is a less-then-formal atmosphere.
I've had the opportunity to invite Guido as spokesman for Magento for one of our Lunch&Learn seminars we give each month. As Community Manager for Magento he knows his share, and was willing to share with us, what the Magento Community can and can not do. All in all it turned out to be a great seminar with lots of positive response. Thank you Guido, for the inspiring session!
Guido was one of the organisers of the Dutch Joomladays when I met him. Guido is aquiet, thoughtful man with a 'get things done'-mentality. He is a e-commerce professional with a lot of skills. It's been a joy working with him.
As the Dutch Magento community manager Guido is responsible for the Meet Magento e-commerce conferences in the Netherlands. I helped him organize the conference. Guido is a great e-commerce specialist and he established an international conference program of high quality. He is reliable, creative and has a great network. It is very pleasant to work with him and I am looking forward helping him at the next Meet Magento.
It was great to have Guido on the board of SGS. The position of Public Relations suited him very well, he's very creative and professional. Beside this formal part I'm happy to say that we became friends too.
Guido did a great job this year at the dutch joomla days 2009. From the planning stage untill the days itself he kept the attention alive with all modern means available.
Over different social networks and tools keeping the whole Joomla community informed on the development of the joomla days.
I was present at day #1 and the day was packet with good speakers and presentations. Day #2 I wasn't able to attend but was still informed realtime over twitter. Great job.
Guido has organised the Dutch Joomla Days 2009. I attended and was very pleasantly surpirsed at the professionalism of the organisation, as well as the content and quality of the congress. Very well done Guido !
Guido is a modest and hard-to-notice-he's-around-guy who's very capable of taking care of things without letting anybody know he was behind it. I visited the Dutch Joomla!Days 2009 as a reporter and felt the complete organisation of the event had been taken care of perfectly, while Guido was always available for a good laugh, crisis advice, as well as a spectator, photographer and a collegue very pleasant to work with. At the end of the day my batteries were charged with inspiration and energy, instead of feeling tired, empty and frustrated (you know those events where everything goes wrong and everybody is blaming everybody). No worries and good organising skills. That's what Guido is all about. Thank you, Guido, for a great #jd09nl and I hope to see you next time!
Guido is a great guy to work with, always online and ready to help.
The usage of open source products helped the teammembers to manage the project. Guido managed to get the nicest team ever for the joomladays, I'm glad I was one of them.
Guido did a great job in organizing the first ever Magento meeting in Europe. In brief time Guido made it possible for the open source e-commerce community in the Netherlands to get 'in touch' with the people behind Magento. The meeting was well organized in all aspects, and was well worth the costs. I look forward to the next meeting organized by Guido. Keep up the good work!
Guido is an outstanding partner when dealing with open source and Magento in particular. He has an eye for business, is easy to communicate with, combines management skills with technical insight, and combines all that with his enthousiasm for Magento.
Guido, made it happing during the first Dutch Magento Day's in Holland.
He was the best service director you could wish.
The event was a very big succes, 2 thumbs up!
Thanks Guido, the organization of the Dutch Magento Day was amazing. In such a short period you have organized this event very well. Without doubt your devotion was one of the reasons the event was a success.
Guido did a splendid job on organizing the first Dutch Magento Day in Utrecht. The program was interesting and varied and Guido's enthusiasm made it a succesfull day. As a brons sponser, Futurix thanks Guido for his efforts.
Guido is the founder of Dutchento and as such responsable for the first Dutchento conference. Guido did a great job organising this event at which Madia was a gold sponsor. High quality location, good program and enthusiastic host. We hope to strenght our partnership in the future as a Magento partner and leader in de Magento community.
Guido you did a great job, organizing the Dutch Magento Days.
Guido did a marvellous job by single-handedly organising the first Dutch Magento meeting.
Guido is one of the best "connectors" I know. He headed an amazing Magento community day in Holland which I was a part of in January 2009.
Guido was bestuurslid van StudentenGroep Sociale wetenschappen in de tijd dat ik ook lid was bij de vereniging. Hij heeft toen laten zien zeer creatieve ideeen te hebben. Daarnaast heb ik prettig met hem samen gewerkt in verschillende commissies binnen de vereniging.
Guido manages to work consistent on a job. His favorite task is research and to cultivate 'a green field' in some line of business / Open development. Do not expect reports every day, expect changes every day because he knows "where it happens" and is willing to share. Guido speaks little but does a lot. Very friendly guy and a joy to work with.
I know Guido for many years now; I'm proud to say that we have become friends. As a former worldclass athlete, Guido knows what it takes to perform. I've worked with him on some smaller projects, and was impressed by his professionality, his in-depth knowledge, and his responsiveness.
Dutch Open Source is een goed initiatief voor open source in nl. Succes Guido! ;)
Guido and I worked on several projects together, including our bachelor thesis. Guido is a very efficient worker with great communication skills and working with him has been a rewarding and fun experience.
Guido is a very honest and integer person which I could recommend for a position in another company if needed, and a great person to work with.
Guido was a great leader, he knew what was going around in the Joomla Community. Therefore he had a great overview in the team. He knew what the wishes of the community were and managed to turn those to features on the forum or website.
Guido is - next to a very good businessman - also a person to become friends. Due to his personal touch and affinity with the Joomla! CMS we are still working together a lot.
Guido is a well know professional, and a great partner.
Guido is a bright mind with solid psychological expertise. He enables areas of improvement that will generate valuable actionable results. I would recommend him to any person or organization willing to optimize their (online) conversion.
Working with Guido was a great experience. Never met someone who knows more about building community, keep on the momentum, care about the user and product. He is one of those guys that are rare to find, for the enthusiasm, humor, go get attitude or Just Do IT. Thanks Guido, hope to welcome you soon in Belgium again :-) !
Guido is een echte professional! Ik ken niet veel mensen die:
- Passie en liefde hebben voor het vak
- Een groot netwerk hebben
- Presentaties kunnen geven
- Blogs kunnen schrijven
- Sympathiek is en goed bij een klant ligt
- Online goed snappen
- Gewoon een aardige vent is die niet (alleen) werkt voor zijn salaris, maar die werkt waar je als bedrijf in gelooft...
Guido and I worked together for two years. At ISM eCompany Guido initiated and executed many plans to put us on the map when it comes to e-commerce and Magento. Guido is someone with great passion for his work and a true professional. It has been a pleasure working with him.
Met Guido heb ik een leuke periode gehad bij ISM; Guido is zet zich in voor de Magento Community en is wellknown binnen deze wereld. Zijn lezingen worden altijd door veel mensen gevolgd.
Zijn kennis van Magento gecombineerd met zijn achtergrond in coginitieve psychologie maakt hem tot een geschikte consultant die een organisatie helpt in de juiste inzet van de webshop vanuit de klantperspectief.
Guido is the leader in the Magento-space. Both his knowledge of and experience with the platform as well as his network is impressive. More importantly he is able to use the platform as an enabler; translating business requirements into a solution without losing scalability.
Guido is a true innovator within the (r)etail landscape; on top of innovation and opportunities using the open and social interwebs to connect and share.
He's doing what he cares about, and that makes working with him not only inspiring, but also a fun experience with humor and creativity.
Guido provided conversion rate analysis for our website www.ferbers.com. His work was insightful and has helped us improve our business tremendously. He is very professional and I recommend him wholeheartedly.
Guido is a great guy to co-work with during Meet Magento 2011. I've never experienced a more enthusiastic, but clever, professional. Besides his passion for Magento and (social)psychology he is very business orientated.
Last but not least, he is an highly motivated professional, with an open attitude towards new ideas.
Guido's been an inspirational colleague during my time at Realvine and Vinoo. His knowledge about usability is wide and impressive, he always seems to be one step ahead of everyone when it comes to trying out and selecting the best and latest methods (including software). Thanks to him I've learned a lot of skills I'll be able to use throughout my career. I look forward to working with him again, as he's one of those employees I think every company should have (preferably a dozen).
We recently had an intens training for Magento Enterprise from Guido Jansen. Guido Jansen explained us in a logic, business minded way the possibilities of our E-commerce system Magento Enterprise. He is an expert in this area and has the capacity to `translate technical` information into information which can be understood without technical pre-knowledge.
I was at a "lunch&learn" session in december of 2010. This was held at Oxilion. It's quite an informal setting where a speaker presents a product or service, very interactive and sometimes there's something special going on. As was the case at Guido's Magento-session.
First of Guido does not use powerpoint or keynote, but prezi.com wich makes the presentation itself just a little more interactive and special. And there was Guido's knowledge of the subject, the way he interacts and his humor. I've had great fun and learned a lot, I'd actually like to hire him but well.. He's got a job ;-)
