    #83 - Reimagining business with WeTransfer founder Nalden

    #83 - Reimagining business with WeTransfer founder Nalden

    You've probably heard of WeTransfer, but if not you're in for a treat with this week's episode when we speak to Dutch serial entrepreneur and now angel investor - Nalden.

    Nalden certainly knows a thing or two about building a company from the ground up. A digital native, he began building websites at 13, became a blogger at 16, and six months later was turning a profit. He's perhaps best known for confounding WeTransfer, the easy way to send large files via the internet. 

    These days, he is focusing on his latest venture - Adelee. The premise of Adelee is to make parenting easier and help people feel more prepared for the challenge. With the startup, he aims to reimagine parenting, essentially open-sourcing the task by creating a platform to share access to expert content about parenting.

He is an experienced communications director who shares some of the biggest crisis communications challenges and opportunities he's faced in his career thus far - including the time CAA essentially built a secret airline overnight.

    The Unignorable Podcast #6: Christian Conrad & Oliver Aust on being unignorable and magnetic

    **This podcast was originally published by Der Podcast für Magnetische Unternehmenskultur**

    In this episode, Oliver Aust tells us about why tootings one´s own horn is not only no longer shameful but rather a perfectly fine necessity of our times, how company culture and reputation of a business are so interlinked, they resemble twin siblings and why creating connection through relationship is magnetic and will make customers and employees come to you and want to stay.
