I am observing and overseeing several boards of gaming companies. My trademark is to listen, strategize and give feedback to the stakeholders involved. I also represent management/founders towards shareholders and vice versa.
Last year i started to take my “hobby” a bit more serious, and did start using the title Games Consultant. Throughout the last decade I have been advising people in the gaming industry. And what a two decades it were 2000-2020. I always jokingly say, that my career started when we still had download games that you had to pay for. No mobile smart phones, yes, you are reading it right.
Gosh, I do miss those early days, but having said that, I enjoyed all the new technologies and platforms like social media, that came to our games industry. It made our business very challenging. A fun ride with realy tough moments and super fun times. It made me who I am today. A Games Consultant. Some even call me their ‘consigliere‘, since they want me to listen to them, their management, shareholders and other strategic talks. Once I listen and let things sink in, I then come out and advise. I enjoy having vivid discussions about positioning, strategy and story telling.
