I deliver - I certainly do. During my professional career I have obtained so much different knowledge on different topics that it is hard to make a list of them. The following skills represent my 4 core competencies.
"Thinking out of the box and implementing creative - still rational - marketing concepts is my strength. I dare to be bold and implement concepts that might be risky, but have a high potential to be extremely successful."
“Discovering new solutions for creative, social media marketing is my passion. Moreover the creation of relevant content and development of user interaction are the backbone of my social media work.”
"You could call me a mingler: I am an outgoing person and love to meet new people. I always bond well with clients and perfectly balance between my vision and their needs. "
"Over 10 years of experience in professional songwriting, audio engineering and commercial sound design. Collaborations with international enterprises, independent artists and all major record labels. What else do you need?"
In the past 15 years I have worked in different industries, but they all share one common factor – clients first!
My experience with clients is very vast - ranging from short-term service in the HoReCa-industry to long-term partnerships with global fortune 500 companies.
