Sunday Column (87)

Now this week passed quickly again. Mainly of course because I was off on Friday. If you can call it being off, as I sat at home watching the boy whilst sorting out some business, and my wife doing some DIY. I love this kind of sharing arrangement. It was a good week. Whilst unfortunately some meetings had to be cancelled, one happened in a lovely restaurant in Fitzrovia, the Roka on Charlotte Street. Not only did they serve great Sushi but tender beef, pork, fish etc. One of the most amazing places I have been out to eat for a long time. You must have read by now what my thoughts are on Colin. There are weeks I cannot get enough cuddles from the wee man, and would love to spend more time with him. But someone has to be the bread winner I guess. What I cannot believe at the moment is that this year has passed so quickly. I mentioned that last week already, but 2 more months to go until Christmas. And in 3 months, we will have to start the process of bringing up a child all over again. I can tell you that I

Sunday Column (56)

Another week full of virus or flu or bug – I am getting seriously fed up. I just hope it gets better, but hey – it can’t get worse. Really, just today I noticed that I got better. I still feel weak, and all the DIY over the weekend didn’t help, but it needed to be done. It was a busy week on top of it. But it was good busy if that makes sense. One of the highlights was me speaking at an event from King’s College London on Online Reputation Management. Presentation below. Online Reputation Management Cb Consulting Volker Ballueder View more presentations from Volker Ballueder. I really enjoy speaking and engaging with students and sharing my knowledge with them. And, according to the feedback, they did too! One of my aims is to work part time as a lecturer for digital marketing, or a running a course on inbound marketing. Something along those lines would be great! That would be, if I had the time of course 🙂 The other, and main highlight is Colin: my wee man is now properly moving forward and gets better by the day. He was poorly too but recovered now. Did

another week- am I German?

Another week. I almost feel back in my old job with our weekly report. This week I was up in our HQ in York for two days and had 3 extreme busy days in the office. Even better my Saturday will be spent going to a vineyard in Kent. So do not expect any blurb later today 🙂 Just wanted to say, being on Facebook and all, you see all these status messages about what people are up to. Some of my friends were at the Next08 in Hamburg. I was at the Next07 in Berlin last year and really enjoyed it. Good conference, good blurb in the industry. Now, being away from the German Online Market a bit, it seems so distant. That brings me to what I wanted to write about. Last night a girl from Latvia (?) asked me whether I like driving fast, referring to the Autobahn. And, I did not have anything to say about it. I look at the German market and feel very distant. I think I slowly but surely break my ties with the country I was born in. No question that I am German and surely it comes out in a
