Can you share a moment in your career when you saw PR's direct impact on business performance?
A very serious and difficult crisis situation during a terrorist attack in 2013 that pulled on all possible facets of stakeholder management, and left the company attacked with a stronger license to operate and trust from society and all stakeholders. An important moment with real impact.
What are the comms industry's biggest challenges and opportunities in the year ahead?
The balancing act of managing (in most cases) declining revenues and need for margin protection and at the same time keep the best talent onboard and invest for the future.
What have you most admired about this industry in 2020?
It’s not been a brilliant year for the industry. I have been partly impressed by a quite quick turnaround in most cases to remote working and a different modus operandi.
What has most disappointed you about this industry in 2020?
I had thought more of the big players would use the opportunity to drive more significant change, and that we would also see more innovation of business models in the comms industry this year.
How have you switched off from work and maintained wellness in lockdown?
Daily exercise and much more time outdoors. Not being on a plane most of the time is quite helpful health-wise.
Which book/movie/TV show/podcast/playlist/other cultural source has helped you get through this year or provided inspiration?
Le Bureau was a nice distraction, and Pod Save America has been helpful in bringing some humour to it all.
If I wasn't working in marketing/communications, I would be...
Well, I actually decided to jump from the comms business to the software industry, so...
Sum up 2020 in one word.
