He has been involved in several start-ups and spin-offs in various roles; part-owner, founder and as a C-level manager. Martin’s professional career focus has been on Business Development, Sales and Marketing with many years of both strategic and operational responsibility in companies such as MondoSoft, Computer People and CapaSystems in Denmark and the US.
This month’s talk: Urgency Rules – why a sense of urgency is the mother of all success.
What can working for the Red Cross in Bosnia during the Balkan wars possibly have in common with an IT company in Silicon Valley?
Why is winning Grill Fever 2014 (a Danish equivalent to master-chef) no different from doing a digital start up in Nottingham?
Martin will share his observations and experiences from start-ups, relief work, Silicon Valley and winning Grill fever 2014 and provide valuable, specific and practical insights for any entrepreneur or business manager. Besides his mantra of “urgency rules”, Martin will touch on areas such as timing, selling and building a winning team.
