Thijs van der Vossen to Speak at @BubbleConf 2013 -- cc: @thijs @fngtps

runs one of the more well known consultancies in the Ruby and Rails community. His company has worked for the likes of 37signals , Prada , Volkswagen and many more. Phusion once started out as a consultancy as well, and during that time, we’ve gained a lot of experience in working with customers and bootstrapping: competencies that proved to be invaluable when we made the switch to being a product-only company. With about over a decade of experience, Thijs has been in the consulting business a lot longer than most of us have and we feel his story could help you run your own business better as well. Be it either negotiating the right terms and prices to marketing/pitching ideas to prospective clients, these are things that will be applicable both to consultancies and tech startups alike.
