Having my hand on heart and greatly moved, I can feel the moment when a life vision comes true. It is the moment I look forward to experiencing and sharing with you all.
Fellow travelers with most of you, we have quite early set out on the road to the world of the Media and advertising. It’s been a wonderful journey which for me started in 1990, when I was still in the first year at university. Endless hours of hard work, I recall, and tiredness but also lots of laughs and warm human relations. A network of peers roughly of the same age who began to build – unawares then – a new reality and in essence the new foundations of the advertising market. That was certainly an unripe, beautiful and at times rough period. Well, 32 years have passed and how quickly they’ve flown by!
I’ve grown, matured, saw a lot and learned a lot in a magnificently demanding and constantly changing environment. Looking back, in hindsight, I can now perceive how lucky I’ve been! How many wonderful people I have met and how many great challenges I have encountered.
In that period of early and perhaps unripe maturity, fundamental questions inevitably arose: What is the purpose of my coming into this world? Honestly, why do I exist? What do I wish to achieve? Who am I truly? Who do I want to be? What do I want my world to look like, and more what i do want for the world of advertising and Media that I so much love? Overall, how do I envision my life and the future of the humanity?
