Petri is the driving force and entrepreneur in a person. He sets high goals and climbs the mountain and reaches his targets. He is the winner in any survival game. He enjoys the speed and can take on risks, too. A great leader!
After learning of Petri's business and his intent for making an impact with local DFW companies, we had an opportunity to engage for a customer assignment. The exercise was useful and informative as Petri and his team members are well versed in technology, very customer focused and intent on a delivery of high quality and integrity.
Petri is a visionary executive, leader, and mentor. I had the privilege to work with him for a number of years and grew my skill set tremendously along the way. He is tremendously passionate at everything he does and to have a mentor like that is unbelievable. Petri was always there when I had questions and readily available to jump in and provide support in whatever it took to make the client happy.
I have worked with Petri in a specific Windows Azure workshop he lectured in Portugal. My company at the time was part of the Azure Circle Partner program and we were selected to be part of the workshop - where we discussed ways of changing how we do business through thinking in a "Business Model Canvas" way.
This workshop was a life-changer and it really made me start doing things differently in my professional life. The contents were well presented and Petri made me feel that there was a tool I could use in my advantage, and I thank him for that.
I surely hope we are able to do some joint projects the future.
I worked with Petri when my company was defining and building out our Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence architecture in the early 2000's. Petri followed through on every commitment he made to our company, and helped us achieve success. His passion for learning, amazing energy level, and determination to provide top-notch, personal service to his customers enable him to achieve great results in his career.
Dr. Petri Salonen supported HIll Country Tech for the past couples of years on several projects from pre-sales to closing. He has great technical depth as well as marketing and sales support expertise. He is an honest, hardworking, and tireless in his persuit of perfection. I value his busines and personal frienship greatly!
He was there and he cared.
Dr. Petri Salonen was an exemplary boss who gave me a clear understanding of what my role was and helped me grow as an individual. He was a great mentor to me and gave me a global perspective and enhanced my technical knowledge.
Petri is the personification of enthusiasm! Energetic, knowledgeable and an excellent presenter makes him a very effective educator. Being very generous and sharing his experience not only contributes to those reading his books or attending his seminars but also made it exciting and rewarding for mer personally to work with him during the period of 18 months when we worked together. I hope to get the opportunity again...
I had the pleasure of working with Petri I. in product development and productisation project. Petri I. has an incredible amount of energy and enthusiasm in his daily work. He is excellent in motivating his team and coworkers.
