New year, new challenges!

A new year arrived and with it some cool challenges came knocking to my door. January was still making its appearance and I was already back to teaching, this time on the topics of Social Media Marketing and Social CRM, something I love doing and always seem to find the energy to do no matter … Continue reading

Goodbye 2013, hello 2014!

This a.m. as I was getting ready to head to the office a story came to my mind: back in the early 90s our neighbours came to woke us up one Saturday morning. We rushed down the stairs to see what the fuss was all about and realized that a young foreign woman, travelling with her … Continue reading

Art, life and work
