    Build a data-led influencer strategy that wows your bosses - with Daniella Capodilupo, Influencer Marketing Manager of Preply

    Build a data-led influencer strategy that wows your bosses - with Daniella Capodilupo, Influencer Marketing Manager of Preply

    It seems like every business wants to try working with influencers and creators... but how can you truly kick ass with the influencer channel? To answer this question, I spoke with Daniella Capodilupo, who has 8 years of experience working with influencers, brand and agency-side.
    Listen and you’ll learn how to get buy-in from influencers, how to set up effective campaigns, and the data points you need (but might not expect) that show ROI to your bosses. We even brainstormed a little on how to grow a show (like this one!) with influencers.
    P.S. Ruavieja kicks butt - and no headache the next day either 💪

    Creative routines: Learning from some of history's top creators

    When's the best time to get creative? When should you work on your side project? Why should you avoid brainstorming in the afternoon?

    In this podcast, I turn to the daily routines of some of history's most famous creators (after a shot of Jäger) to try and answer these questions. Come and learn about the peak hours for creative work, and Honore De Balzac's crazy 'kill-self-with-coffee' routine.

    How to build a podcast (and create a community with it) - with Pavlo Pedenko, Product Manager of Wise

    How to build a podcast (and create a community with it) - with Pavlo Pedenko, Product Manager of Wise

    My first interview on the show is with Pavlo Pedenko, product manager of Wise, who shared his learnings on building The Product & Growth Show - a well-known podcast for product managers and marketers in Ukraine. 

    We spoke about what to do first when starting a podcast, how to reach your audience, and got quite drunk on tequila.
    P.S. Rule 1 on building a podcast should be if you have a microphone, then TURN IT ON. Apologies for my audio!

    Where do the best ideas come from?

    Where do the best ideas come from?

    Do great ideas come from deep work, deep rest, or somewhere in between?
    In this podcast, I’ll drop a shot of Garnacha and compare two books that explore the source of some of the world’s groundbreaking ideas. You’ll learn some of the tactics and takeaways from Deep Work by Cal Newport and Rest by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang for potential idea-triggers for your work or personal projects.
