Renaissance jobs in digital: What skills do you need to survive a 21st century career

R

Renaissance jobs, also otherwise known as hybrid roles are a mishmash of more than one skill, a combination of expertise in more than one domain. You might have come across roles such as experience architect, user experience consultant, or even customer wrangler, all of these typically involve technical knowledge, excellent communication and management skills. All of these roles...

Do I need a university degree to succeed in digital?

D

Full Disclosure I have a BA and an MA, so this is a really difficult question for me to answer unbiasedly. However, I would be lying to you if I said that you need a university degree to succeed in digital. The reality of the job market, specifically digital is very different. I have worked with professionals who are educated lawyers, but work as digital coordinators, with literature graduates as...

Summer lovin’…

S

… had me a blast. Do you know what song I am thinking of? This is my all time favourite song and movie, and when I was little I used to make everyone sing it with me. I was Sandy, and Danny took on the shape of my stepfather, brother, friend, anyone really who would humour me! So today in honour of all those happy memories, I wanted to share with you my summer lovin’. This summer has...

Should you embellish your stories?

S

Some people are born natural storytellers and most of those people have one key thing in common; they embellish stories. How do I know this? My parents are masters of embellishment when it comes to stories. I was lucky to grow up with them, because everyday things like going to the supermarket became exciting when told by my parents. As I grew up I realised that some things weren’t exactly...

My Christmas story

M

prefer Christmas to my birthday, or to any other holiday. It’s all the typical stuff that makes it so special; family, friends, the Christmas tree, the food, the fact it’s definitely OK to open a bottle of Champagne at 10am. Everyone comes home, we eat, we drink, we open presents, and watch Christmas movies. It’s a very typical Christmas day. That aside Christmas gives everyone...

Overcoming impostor syndrome

O

ccasionally, I wake up feeling like an impostor. I question all of my previous experience, and convince myself that everything so far has been luck, which of course is about to run out. I have heard the sentence “I feel like an impostor“, from every ambitious, motivated, hard-working person I know.  So, why do we keep questioning our abilities? I have a theory I want to share with you...

Learn how to tell stories from master storytellers

L

One of the many things I learned at The Power of Storytelling conference in Romania, Bucharest, is that storytelling is the most democratic form of creativity. Murray Nossel, says that people can argue about politics, social and cultural beliefs, and opinions, but they can’t argue about experiences. Your story is what happened to you. I want to take a few hundreds words and tell you about...

The Irresistible power of strategic storytelling: Road trip to Croatia

T

Following the first workshop held in Belgrade, The Irresistible Power of Strategic Storytelling, was held for the second time in Croatia, at WordCamp Zagreb. I would like to share with you a great story about Zagreb, a case study done by the students. This story will entice you to visit Zagreb, and give you an example of what we learned that day. For those of you who haven’t had a chance to...

The best brands tell stories

T

esterday sitting in the office I looked around and noticed that about 70% of our engineers were wearing branded T-shirts. They had the GoDaddy brand clearly visible, and later that day talking to my boyfriend who is the CEO of FishingBooker, I realized how important branded T-shirts and bags were to employees. I hadn’t given much thought as to why we all wanted to dress the same, we are all...

You were definitely amazing, and friendly as usually. I didn't expect anything less. Well organised, good in team work, but also, I think everyone had a feeling you were there just for them.
