He came to the Berlin School of Creative Leadership to further his skills in leading interdisciplinary teams bridging content creation and technology: “With an improved theoretical underpinning of the business, and the exposure to the different leadership styles I will encounter, I feel I will be better prepared to lead teams making advertising content and exploring new technologies.”
