It’s almost hard to believe but this year was the ninth time I’ve attended Mobile World Congress (MWC). I first attended the conference back in 2005. Back then it was hosted in Cannes. And, wow, has it changed since the early days!
With more than 100,000 visitors and hundreds of exhibiting companies, MWC has grown to become easily the largest mobile trade event of the year. Now held...
2017 marks the tenth year of Slush and the fourth time that I’ve attended the event, which I guess makes me a veteran, right?
When I attended the very first conference it was a much smaller affair – we were only about 300 people back then. But over the years, Slush has grown to host annual conferences and events in Singapore, Shanghai, and Tokyo, that attract more than 40,000...
The WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management has long been considered a top address for students who want to become successful founders. In that context it’s only natural that the private business school has launched a roundtable on entrepreneurship. The aim is to organize events where business ideas are discussed in order to convey know-how in the field of startups and entrepreneurship - a...
Over 2000 Europeans - but also people from the rest of the world – came to Shoptalk Europe 8-11 October in Copenhagen to learn the latest and greatest about retail and ecommerce innovations and interact with other ecommerce people. The line-up of speakers was impressive; from tech giants like Google, Amazon and Alibaba, via established brands like Levi's and H&M, to relatively newcomers like...

I don’t know about you, but I’m a much more demanding shopper than I used to be.
Visiting family in the small town where I grew up on the weekend really brought that home to me. Living in the big city, I’m used to 24/7 service these days. I can get pretty much whatever I want whenever I want it, whether it is food (Foodora), a ride (Uber) or whatever else I need. Gone are the days of...
Technology is one of the most powerful driving forces for change in our finance industry. That has never been so obvious as at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last month, where I got to see tech and trends that will be changing your business and your life for years to come.
MWC is the largest get-together for the global mobile tech industry, bringing together manufacturers and vendors,...
I’m just back at work after some intensive weeks finishing up my new book “Find Gold in Your Own Channels: Sell More Online – Without Buying More Advertising”. It should be coming out in May this year, and looks at how you can use your own channels to raise your visibility – and your sales.
Now of course, I hope you all get your copy of the book. But if you can’t wait, you can...
Last week, a team of product managers, developers and sales reps from our various markets braved the icy November darkness of Helsinki to attend Slush, one of the world’s hottest tech startup events.
This year, 17,000 people, 2,000 start-ups and 800 venture capitalists from more than 120 countries gathered to listen to insights and new business models while networking and sharing with their...
Growth is the name of the game in the Nordics. Just ask our CEO.
You know the saying “all work, no play”? Well, it wasn’t quite all work when top management visited us the other week. Even though our Global CEO Fernando Carro is the boss of nearly 70,000 people, I think he would agree that it is hard to imagine a warmer welcome. Greeted by our cheering staff, a shower of confetti and the...
