My mission is to help smart professionals to connect and engage with their networks online and offline beyond just relying on word of mouth referrals. For many people, meeting strangers is far outside their comfort zone. When I came to Australia, I didn't know anybody. Building a strong network quickly, I'm sure you can do that as well.
I am curious to learn how I can help you - on this page you find all about me
When I started my new life in Sydney not knowing anyone, I couldn't rely on old friendships or former workmates. For many this is a scary situation, especially at 40+.
I saw strategic networking as the ideal chance to moving into a new place quickly. Using my natural curiosity towards others, I realised that being open to helping them works better than asking them for help in finding a job.
This blog is my platform to share my journey about building and cultivating a personal brand. Combining this with my experience in sales and marketing, I developed a passion for Social Selling.
This buzzword comes from the corporate world, and I'm helping smaller organisations to leverage these powerful principles to advance their business agenda.
Turning my passion for Social Selling into a profession: at Hootsuite I am responsible for the Channel Partner strategy and execution across Asia Pacific. That includes all aspects of commercial and technical partnerships with Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), Agencies, System Integrators and Value Added Resellers (VARs).
Together we drive revenue growth, services and strategic initiatives in partnership with the Hootsuite sales, product and services teams. This leading social media management platform helps users effectively execute social media strategies in their organisation.
The Sydney campus of the Australian Institute of Management became my first professional home. This institute was the ideal place to formally improve my leadership skills after a solid foundation as Sales Manager in Europe.
As a fellow member of the Institute of Managers and Leaders, I obtained the accreditation as Chartered Manager (CMgr), a huge motivation to continue on the "lifelong learning" journey. I write regularly for leadership blogs and contributed 2018 to the book "Leaders of Influence".
