Bridge between Businesses and the Technology Industry

Why Canary

Why Canary

There are firms that help you with technical consulting. there are firms that assist you with business consulting. At Canary, we believe technical and business consulting are two sides of the same coin.

This is why we came together to set up Canary – a team of like minded individuals with significant experience, powerful technical capabilities and a shared belief that the Why, What and How of any problem statement or business scenario should be looked at organically and holistically.

Whilst many teams may come from a similar point of view, we were also uniquely positioned to catapult Canary to fruition given our deep technology stack and technical competencies. At Canary, not only would you find some of the leading domain experts and industry leaders to gain insight from but you would also be supported by stalwart technology specialists who can help you achieve and execute the advisory at the ground level of operations.

Sussan De
Co-founder

Director of Innovation

“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
...
Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

These words from the book Man’s Search for Meaning authored by Holocaust survivor, Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist Viktor Frankl changed my life forever. I was deeply moved by the book not least by the fact how humanity can stoop or surge in the darkest of circumstances but because it resonates with an innermost belief of mine about how the soul is really what makes a human being – its all about the attitude.

Over the last 2 decades of her career, she has done and been many things – a prolific business analyst, IT developer, project & program manager, a Bollywood singer and a dance professional, an advocate of animal welfare, a licensed Engineer and Technologist, recipient of scholarships and awards; none of those laurels though define who she is. She is defined by her belief in herself, in people and the good they can do and faith in the fact that humans are social beings and ought to help each other make a better world.

“I believe in the team at Canary and in the best interests of everyone we work with. I believe we can help our clients be the best version of themselves whether through digitization, transformation or other methods. I believe change begins from within.

Maarten van den Bos
Co-founder

Director of Business
Development & Sales

With over 25 years of experience in sales, marketing, business development, events, networking, hosting meetings, public speaking and customer presentations, Maarten realized that the base of every success story is human relations and interactions.

“Digitization is not about the technology but all about the users. With a very fast changing world and the changing ways we do business, it is paramount that you stay on top of all the technology changes that are coming about, but don't just jump on new technology because it is new. Do you really need it? Is it going to help you in your business? What is the added value to your business, if any? These are the questions we at Canary Digital Solutions want to help companies solve. We work with our clients and help them to make the best next step on their digital journey. Solve their problems and make sure they get the most value from the solutions they deploy.”

Having worked in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and North America, Maarten has a very wide understanding of different cultures and can effortlessly help people to connect. His extensive experience working in corporate environments has given him the unique skills to communicate and connect with people at all levels.

“My strength lies in the ability to listen to people and help them drill down to their core problems and from there help them to find the best fitting solution to solve those problems.”

Anita van den Bos
Co-founder

Director of Marketing

With over 20 years of experience in printing, graphic layouts, graphic design, and painting, Anita realized that she has an amazing feel for colors, layouts and creating inspiring visualizations that connect with the people she creates them for.

“Colors and compositions have always been my passion and I always had a very strong feel for what worked and what didn’t. Over the years I was able to understand people’s personalities, ambitions and dreams and create visual impressions of those. My feel for colors and the use of them in different combinations has always been my passion and seen as one of my strengths in design. Combined with the right fonts, composition and content, you can make a lasting impression in a glance.”

Having lived in Europe, the Middle East and Asia as well as traveled all over the world, Anita has a unique mixture of styles, cultures and experiences to draw inspiration from which is evident in the multitude of websites she has created over the years. Combined with a natural talent for marketing both on and offline, she is one of the drivers of our team and always pushes us all to a higher level.

“One of my joys is to create a design and composition after a first in depth discussion with the client and then seeing the excitement they express as they recognize themselves in the visualization. It inspires me to do more and push myself even harder to help them stand out. My next goal is to expand that knowledge into the UX/UI environment to be able to service our clients in the best possible way”
