10 reasons why you should hire me.

  1. 1. marketing | digital strategy | customer experience | community 10 REASONS YOU COULD HIRE ME
  2. 2. 1. experience I’ve worked in numerous industries, both for startups and large multinationals, for private and public companies, and with tiny to very large globally distributed teams. I’ve tackled a vast amount of business challenges, both internal and external. All my life I’ve sat at the crossroad of technology, marketing, and social media. The diversity and depth of my experience gives me unique perspective on any problem you might need to solve.
  3. 3. I’ve worn so many hats, it’s probably why I don’t have much hair left. I was an engineer, an entrepreneur, a pre-sales consultant, a technical writer, a product evangelist, a community manager, a product marketer, and a digital strategist. I probably forget a few. There’s not a lot of room for one-trick ponies in this business. I’ve always known how to quickly adapt to the situation at hand. 2. versatility
  4. 4. 3. flexibility I’m easy to work with. Quite honestly, many people in this business aren’t. To me it’s about partnerships, and things don’t always go as planned, so you have to roll with the punches. Adapt, put on your best game, help everyone who asks for it, and do what it takes to get the job done – even if it seems a little weird at the time.
  5. 5. 4. loyalty I once worked free for a client - that’s right, free. Why? Because the business was tanking, the owner was desperately trying to score more investment, and he was up-front about it. I had no issue saying “don’t worry, I’ll stick it out. Pay me when you can”. They didn’t end up making it unfortunately, but I did eventually get paid. I still have the hand-written thank you note from the CEO. I’m old-fashioned about that.
  6. 6. 5. can-do attitude Nothing motivates me more than someone saying “it’s impossible to do this” or “no one’s ever done it before”. I never met a professional challenge I didn’t like. Which is why I once moved from California to Switzerland. Can-do attitude accounts for 95% of success as any Navy SEAL will attest to.
  7. 7. 6. results I once told a client “if you don’t see results in six months, fire me because you’re wasting your money”. They were very surprised as other people had told them it would take years to achieve their goals. We delivered early and frequently. Little by little. But always something. And they didn’t fire me 
  8. 8. 7. culture I’m lucky to be multicultural and multilingual. I’ve visited more countries than most people can name. And I’ve worked with teams all across the globe. Travel and diversity open the mind, fuel innovation, and keep you humble. It also gives you a unique and distinct business advantage - especially in the marketing field.
  9. 9. 8. baggage I don’t bring any pre-conceived notions or dogmas to the table. I’ve been around long enough to know that in this business, things aren’t always black or white. I’m a natural-born sceptic, and learning is a life journey. You show me a better way to skin a cat and we’re having feline burgers for dinner tonight. Leave arrogance to the insecure ones.
  10. 10. 9. passion When I was seven years old, my mother came to pick me up after a long day’s work at my great grandmother’s apartment. She rushed to hug me but I put my hand out and snapped at her “Leave me alone! Can’t you see I’m doing my homework? Don’t bother me now!” I haven’t changed very much in terms of passion and focus since then. Although I’m a little nicer about it. I can only do things 110% or not at all.
  11. 11. 10. left brain As a former geek, I love data. many people respect data but fear it. Data is everyone’s friend. I’m inherently Cartesian by upbringing and experience. I’m willing to believe, but show me the data first. In a field like digital marketing too often dominated by artisans, it’s good to have a little analytical structure.
