“If my ideas are interesting enough, the world will listen”
[pullquote]”If something is trendy it doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for our client and solve his problems.”[/pullquote] Q: Do you pay attention to trends?
It is a full time job, especially when one is working in the communications industry – probably among the fastest changing indus- tries today. We live by keeping up with what’s out there, but if something is trendy it doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for our client and solve his problems. I always try to see what is an optimal solution, not what is hot at the moment.
Q: How do you feel about technology?
I am not your regular geek. Even though my job is largely led by digital technology and endless data available, I still use a simple little black notebook where I write everything down. As for technology, I’m still fascinated with the fact that I can speak with the entire planet almost entirely for free, and if my ideas are interesting enough, the world will listen. This is a new step in the evolution.
Q: How are you competitive and innovative?
Creativity, creativity and more creativity. Besides that it’s crucial to always be open to change while maintaining a critical eye and using this approach in trying to provide optimal solutions for clients, meaning providing maximum results with minimum resources.
