I’m Tom. We’ve probably exchanged emails, spoken at an event or perhaps someone forwarded my credentials to you for you to visit my site. In any event, I am honored you took the time.
What is there to know?
I am a well-rounded jack-of-all-trades. That means I am equipped and/or trained to do a lot of things, which helps me gain insight from different perspectives.
In the field of business development and growth hacking people often speak of the T-shape skill set that is required to perceive all the challenges an organisation, product or service faces. Instead of looking at it from the one single discipline, someone with the T-shape skill set can see the different issues to perceive the underlying problems.
So what are my skills?
I started in web development in 2001 when i needed a platform to host my video and animation productions. After finishing the platform I was immediately drawn to all the possibilities for positioning myself in the market. That’s how I first came into contact with branding through marketing and communication.
In the years that followed, my natural interest in IT and digital services matured. To strengthen the vision I had for the market and to be closer to product development I joined the bachelor programme for Media & User Experience Design in 2009.
Currently, I’m the head of Marketing and Digital at a publisher that organizes high-end events for the CxO market.
At this stage, that means I am knowledgeable on many different disciplines through experience, study and interest. I am profound in design, behavioral user psychology, coding, data & analytics, marketing, product/service development, business development, media and communication.
These disciplines combined provide me with the skills to easily infiltrate into an organisation to help it overcome obstacles and contribute to growth.
