Thursday Flash (8)

Thursday Flash! This week I thought it is worth sharing an article from a couple weeks ago, fuelling the discussion around Snapchat and TV. Is TV moving more mobile? Is TV as we know it dead? How do screens look like in the future? I am curious to see all that, and also how things will move along with content consumption for our kids. What is the main medium (video?) and on which screen (mobile) – or will new forms emerge? The future is going to be interesting, no doubt. I already commented on it via a Linkedin article. On productivity I enjoyed reading about Evernote tips for mobile. I love Evernote and use it all the time. Most notes, meeting notes and reminders go in there. On the go, in the office, at home. Work notes, private notes, industry news, or how to tape my leg. Or the video below on back pain. I love Evernote, and if you ain’t using it yet, maybe you should look into it. For the first time I also like to share a video. Why? Because my chiropractor recommended it to me to solve mobility challenges in my back. So I am sure

Sunday Column (377)

This week brought on a few changes. Mainly work related and I don’t want to go into great detail. In reflection of my career, I have managed to learn a lot on how to deal with change, engage in situations and which approach I should take. Experience I suppose, age and maturity of course. Putting all of that together and going from a career level up to an industry level, I can see almost the opposite with the broadcast industry. You probably wonder what I am on about. I attended a conference for TV people this week. They don’t know much about programmatic advertising. And, should they not change, the youngsters from the digital programmatic space will teach the older, maturer generation from broadcasting, how it is done. Upside down. Innovation and automatisation will always be ahead of rigidity. I don’t want to have too much of a go, but the conference showed me that some of the broadcasters don’t really understand what is happening in the world. They seem to be stuck in their old business models, neglecting the insights they can drive. And when consultants then suggest the magical steps to change and list action points I haven’t

Sunday Column (363)

This week was far from slow going. It started with the little one’s nativity play in which he was a donkey. I loved his outfit, yet his role was all but sitting around doing nothing. He loves acting and in years to come I see him taking on more prominent roles. Just the opposite from what his brother is like when it comes to performing. On Tuesday I went to a meeting outside London for a big presentation, to come back to our official Christmas party. I stayed over in London, in one of the posher hotels, which didn’t fail to disappoint. It is a shame how hotels in London get away with being so tourist oriented and less service oriented. Not good advertising for the tourists that come over. Never mind, we had a great night out at one of Gordon Ramsey’s restaurants, amazing food and fantastic chats. It is always a pleasure to meet the founder of the company and talking shop. Having said that, it is nice to also not talk shop but about experience, family, and life overall. Working for smaller companies and start ups is great as there is a real connection between the top
