I believe in enabling and developing the future. Data + Insights is my vocation; teaching is my passion. Helping young passionate marketers become something better has been something that I’ve been part of while at school, at work or in my spare time.
I would break this into 2 part advice – best career advice – make your boss look good. Best personal development advice – learn as much as you can. Learn from your mistakes (best learning comes from that).
Atle Gjelsvik – My civil engineering professor and advisor. He taught me to find a solution to the problem at hand – not a big, hypothetical story/overview that is created to ‘package’ the problem. The solution is much simpler for the problem than for the package.
It’s the engineer inside – seeing what you have planned and worked for actually being created and built. Close second – helping others do what they need to do easier.
