MAKE YOUR OWN OPPORTUNITIESABOUT BoardXpert
Founder Gerd Janiszewski
A lack of profitability or to be stuck in the race of growth often leads to the same topics to be addressed: (flexible) structure, standardization and process automation. BoardXpert offers you our large treasury called first-hand experience to get traction, to take the hurdles and to make the change you like (or need) happen.
Real life challenges are numerous. Just like raindrops: one is not a problem, but plenty of them can really make you wet, feeling uncomfortable and stressed out.
Our strategic approach: together with you we structure topics, prioritize and separate „important“ from „urgent“. For this you first need clarity about your goals and needs.
We help you on that journey. As advisors and sparring partners on eye-level.
A good mixture between working in the company and working on the company really makes the difference.
Getting a helicopter overview, thinking on the meta level is often a well known, but forgotten duty. It’s so much easier to work on difficulties and tasks and very satisfying to act as a firefighter.
But getting distracted is the fertilizer for dissatisfaction, worries and inertia. We guide you to overcome this.
Success is crucial – therefore we take a deep dive into real life business. Hands on.
The helicopter view is definitely important – still: touching ground and being able to judge on operational consequences in daily business bridges the gap between theory and real life.
We are your mirror, expressing unpleasant truths immediately.
Respectfully. And in a confidential working environment.

The Numbers Don’t Lie
According to a self-conducted, non-representative survey (in 2022) 92% of the company leaders in the language industry are not supported by an Advisory Board or C-level sparring. Whereas 37% plan to implement such a (non-statutory) board within the next 24 months.

A huge Treasury of Experience
The essence of a whole career as a founder, manager, CEO and company owner in Language, IT and Software Industry: I gained a huge treasury of experience. This got me in the driver’s seat to get business owners and leaders in the position to decide even faster.
It is the desire to let other people grow, to empower and to help which fuels me. Being able to do so also brings fun. Working with fun makes you even more successful, which in turn creates even more fun. I love it.
So, after the successful exit from two own StartUps (B2C marketplaces) and after more than 25 years in various leadership positions I founded BoardXpert.
