More Episodes

We made it through another season. From September 2019, we launch season 3, which will focus more on personal development than before. Of course, we still have some adtech and digital stars lined up, but with Ballueder Partners focus shifting towards more coaching work, things will change ever so slightly.

Stay tuned and please subscribe on any major podcast outlet, and please rate me 5 stars :-) That is, if you like it of course.

On our last show before the summer break, amazingly episode 40 overall, I welcome Martin Vinter who I met when we both freelanced and worked in digital consulting a few years ago. I rate him very highly. He is a humble and fair person, living the motto of ‘be fair, be firm’.

We talk about the industry to begin with, about in-housing, consulting and how the world of advertising is evolving. This is a fun conversation about self awareness, roles of people in organisations and within careers. Being a nice person is sometimes hard, but one of the key principles for Martin.

On the other hand we discuss our daily grind, the challenge of balancing work, life and interests. How EQ becomes more and more important, and how bad managers can influence your life. For him there isn’t much reading, he often prefers Netflix over a book, and a 5 am routine is definitely out of question. He likes to serve people and be a good person, very humble and determined.
