by Sonja van den Bosch

Over the past 4 years, I’ve been a spectator and supporter of my boys’ road to black belt in Taekwondo. This experience has had a profound impact, not only on them but also on me.

We resolve to do better and achieve our ambition – and we are fierce in our determination, fuelled by the prospect of a new year with the slate wiped clean.

Lessons from LEGO House

by Sonja van den Bosch

Who doesn’t like Lego? Our parents used to play with it, we played with it and now our children play with it. It’s a toy and brand that has stood the test of time. One of my sons has been asking us to go and visit the home of Lego, so off we went to Billund, Denmark. The Lego brick was invented there more than 60 years[…]

The 7 Critical Marketing Roles Every Business Needs

by Sonja van den Bosch

For the past few decades, the role of the marketing department has changed dramatically. Although the end goal has remained largely unchanged – to increase the visibility of a business’ brand and attract more ideal customers – the changing needs of consumers, the increasing competitive landscape and the growing opportunities offered in the digital world, has meant the most successful businesses have marketing teams that have also evolved.

Why do I need a strategic marketing plan?

by Sonja van den Bosch

by Sonja van den Bosch

A few weeks ago I heard the following on the radio ‘kids who have an inspirational teacher at school will have better careers later in life’.
