Putting tech to work to serve business goals
I’m Olivier Travers, an entrepreneur and consultant primarily focused on business intelligence and SaaS integration. I’m physically based in Chile but with a global outlook, with clients across the world. In 2017 alone I supported clients in the US, Mexico, Chile, Australia, Singapore, Spain, and France.
As a consultant and adviser I help companies with challenges such as:
- Business intelligence
- marketing automation (inbound + account-based marketing), CRM, email marketing, web analytics
- Data and SaaS integration, workflows
- Payment processing and subscription management
- Software development methodology, build or buy, leveraging open source software and cloud computing
- New market and product development, from market research to competitive benchmarking to product definition and product management
I typically work with company founders/owners, CxOs, and people at the VP and director level. Engagements go from very short consultations (1 or 2 hours over the phone) to ongoing projects spanning several years.
With a focus on systems thinking & integration across disciplines
Throughout my career my customers, colleagues and partners have consistently said that I bring the following to any project:
- Clarity and conciseness
- Analytical due diligence
- Bridging technology and business with a holistic perspective
- Long-term foresight
- Strategic vision grounded in operational realities: see how details fit in the big picture
Incidentally I’ve found that my form of lateral thinking and inter-disciplinary cross-pollination applies to my extra-professional interests, from martial arts to music. I guess it’s just the way I’m wired rather than something I’ve been doing consciously. I’m just not interested in arbitrary mental silos, and would rather let my mind go wherever curiosity and critical thinking will take it.
My full professional profile is available on LinkedIn.
In my clients’ words
“Olivier is a great communicator and has exceptional attention to detail.”
“I had a two hours meeting with Olivier Travers and it worth every Euro I spent. You’ll appreciate his marketing and sales insights, and your business will benefit from them.”
“Olivier’s skill and deliverables exceeded my expectations in every way.”
“It was a pleasure to work with Olivier. Highly skilled professional.”
“If you’re looking for someone that can look beyond technical requirements then Olivier is your guy. He brings a body-of-knowledge regarding sales/business objectives which adds another level of value to his solid technical work.”
“We needed to show the ROI of our marketing campaigns to our Boards of Directors. Olivier jumped right into our Slack team chat, got into our apps, and compiled data from Salesforce, Hubspot, SurveyMonkey, Github, Google Analytics/Adwords, etc. From this, he put together a dashboard with the key metrics and charts for our enterprise software startup.
Olivier gave a detailed briefing to our CEO and CFO and helped build a presentation that went very well with our investors. Very helpful under the pressure of tight deadlines ahead of a high-stakes meeting.”
“Olivier did a great job and worked as a team member assuring that he added value beyond just answering our questions and completing tasks.”
“This consultant showed a high degree of technical skills and competence. We needed to understand email list management processes and best practices. Olivier explained step by step, with strong teaching skills, how to combine, deduplicate, validate and enrich emails to maximize deliverability and conversion. He made us aware of several Excel tools and email APIs and showed us how to use and integrate them. A brilliant and inspiring demonstration. Olivier can be proud of his mastery and expertise. Highly recommended!”
“Fantastic experience with Olivier. He went above and beyond my expectations for teaching me both how to get the most out of Excel, and how to use other programs and extend their functionality to work smarter, and evolve with today’s market.”
Olivier Travers and sites he contributed to creating have been referenced by news outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Economist, Min’s B2B, the BBC, SearchEngineWatch, Clickz and Fast Company.
Born in 1971, Olivier graduated in 1993 from ESSCA, a reputable French business school. He worked in sales and marketing positions at big IT companies such as Microsoft and AT&T in the nineties, then moved on to smaller internet ventures with the uneven but thrilling boom-and-bust track record shared by many online veterans.
Olivier is originally from France, lived in Germany, Italy and Portugal, and is currently based in Chile with his wife Sophie and their two children. He is fluent in English, French, and Spanish, with remnants of Italian, Portuguese, and German.
