So why are we so effective?
We know your company is unique. So, while understanding your market, competitors and identifying opportunities is important, we know that company ethos and having the right people, sales structure and processes in place is integral to sustainable growth.
As well as focussing on ambitious revenue goals we also place a huge emphasis on creating a strategy, sales process, and coaching the team’s mindset and behaviour in line with your culture. We know that mindset and morale is a critical factor in keeping sales teams motivated and generating revenue over the long term.
That’s where our particular approach comes in. We join as an interim or fractional Sales Leader to be hands-on; as you build a team or if you already have a team in place, we support through sales coaching and workshops for your commercial team; we mentor and coach start-up founders on sales and general company set-up. It’s the combination of hands-on involvement, strategic vision and delivering the support needed that makes the difference.

The Tim Ferris of Europe
Achieve clarity and optimal business and personal performance
As well as advising tech firms on business, marketing and sales strategy, Volker also has a keen interest in self-development – which is why his personal mantra is to always “Be Better”. This has led him to write a best-selling book “Principles of Success”, based on his highly successful podcast “Stories of Success.”
Following almost 100 interviews with high achievers, entrepreneurs, consultants, coaches and visionaries from a range of industries, listeners have dubbed Volker “The Tim Ferris of Europe”. Which isn’t a surprise. Throughout his career Volker has strived to adapt processes and systems that help him and others achieve optimal efficiency.
He is also an experienced leadership coach, mentor, and advisor as well as a leadership and mindfulness trainer. By creating a range of leadership coaching programmes he has helped founders, leaders and boards achieve clarity and optimal performance when difficult decisions need to be made. An extensive knowledge of leadership theories, mindfulness and coaching, combined with hands-on experience leading large international teams, makes him a valuable asset to any tech start up. This has been demonstrated in his many advisory, NED and investor roles across the tech industry.
Don’t take our word for it
“We hired Volker of Ballueder Partners to help us grow our relationship with a key partner that we had lost traction with over the course of the previous year. Not only did he manage to do that, but he assisted us in helping to map out the entire org and drive additional relationships through their release of new products which ultimately lead to extra revenue streams for business.”
Simon Theakston, Managing Partner, Global, SilverBullet
“We hired Volker to put a team together in the German market. Not only did he deliver on the promise, the team he hired subsequently overachieved targets. As much as he is hands on, he knows what to do, he is an excellent team builder and coach. I have no hesitation to hire him again to build successful teams and coach them to success.”
Paul Thompson, CRO, Blis Media
“I hired Volker as a strategic advisor. His input regarding product and marketing proved invaluable to the company and helped us massively attract the right attention in the industry. I would happily hire him again for any role involving product positioning and go to market strategy.”
Nick Ellis, CEO and Founder, Videoagnostic
“I have worked with Volker for almost 10 years. He has been a trusted advisor for several capacities for me. As a first-time entrepreneur, I could always count on him confronting me with uncomfortable truths about myself. Questioning our approach, holding me accountable. Being there in good times and especially the bad ones. Someone you can trust to drive you forward. Volker’s advice has been invaluable to me over the past few years and I will continue to work with him.”
Jost L Founder and CEO
“Volker was always a great coach and mentor when working with him during the challenging times at RocketFuel. I highly recommend him as a sales coach.”
Tim Offermann, Head of Sales, Germany
“Volker’s input in coaching me and my colleagues has been invaluable. From initial training, to being an ongoing sounding board, helping us with key decisions in setting up a sales machine, reviewing our progress”
