Growth Marketing Simplified with Omar Tarek
Omar Tarek is a results-driven Sales and marketing professional with a deep passion for scaling Startups. Currently serving as the Growth Manager at Dstny in Amsterdam.

His relentless optimism and positive attitude in the face of challenges make him a dynamic and inspiring leader in the field of Growth. In Startups or Scale-ups the Growth domain is a wide discipline that is often confused with Growth Marketing activities. Even though Growth Marketing activities fall under Growth responsibilities, the domain is not limited to Growth Marketing only. Growth is about identifying the most suitable GTM motion(s) that the company should double down on to realise its objectives and align the organization around it. Most startups / scale-ups use one or a combination of the motions: (sales led / product led / partner led / content led). The early challenge that most leaders in Marketing / Growth encounter is which motion(s) is suitable for the company’s current situation. In this episode, we will talk about those different GTM motions and how important it is to be pragmatic about the approach you will decide on and align the organisation around it.

From Leaderless to Leaderful Organisations with Didier Marlier
Business simplicity is achieved by shifting from leaderless to leaderful organizations, promoting collective leadership and psychological safety. Complex Adaptive System Theory guides this change, fostering efficient decision-making. Anecdotes like the 1998 French football team highlight the difference between leaderless (removing dominant figures) and leaderful (elevating everyone to their level) approaches. Didier’s professional purpose is to support Business Leaders in challenging the orthodoxies they retain about their business and help them prepare their people and organisations for the disrupted economy. He is a blogger, author, Board advisor, consultant, executive coach, father, husband, professor and an agent-provocateur, Didier advises leaders on how to “intellectually compel” and “emotionally engage” their people into large-scale changes (strategic, organisational, cultural or post M&A), using the levers of Logos (intellect), Ethos (behaviors) and Pathos (emotions). Didier is co-author of “Engaging Leadership” which has been written for leaders who are about to engage their organisations in change. Whether the need is driven by a sudden disruption, a new strategic intent, the desire for a new culture, a painful re-organisation or the integration following a merger or acquisition, this book provides the tools for successful change.

Making Housing Affordable with Mike Keading
Mike Kaeding is the CEO of Norhart. Norhart designs, builds, and rents apartments. They are transforming the way apartments are built and managed by incorporating technologies and efficiencies that have revolutionized other industries, and lead to high-quality, cost-effective projects. Mike’s parents started their family business. However, just a few years after joining the business, Mike’s father unexpectedly passed away. Suddenly, Mike had what felt like the weight of the world on his shoulders. He had to lead this business with no preconceived notion of “the way things are done” in this industry. He was struggling to the point where the city briefly shut him down. This shattered his world. Norhart just naively started to solve problems after that incident. And that led to magic. Norhart began changing the way construction is done. Starting with an attractive culture unique to the construction industry they hired the best talent. Together Norhart solved chronic construction inefficiencies, applied techniques from manufacturing, and integrated traditionally unaffiliated trades. This resulted in higher quality and lower cost projects. Norhart’s mission is to solve America’s housing shortage by transforming the way apartments are built and managed. And in doing so we will improve the way we all live.

Church Inspired Leadership with Nick van Summeren
Nick van Summeren is an experienced leader in the technology domain. He has been leading teams in various roles within the Dutch financial industry. He has also been involved in organizational transformation and coaching senior management. His focus is always on ensuring that technology is delivering business value. Besides his professional career, he has been leading church teams for over 15 years. When it comes to leadership, he argues that commercial organizations can learn a thing or two from voluntary organisations, such as the local church he serves in. Especially in a time where tech professionals can get jobs anywhere they want, and a good salary is a given, it is crucial that leaders in the technology industry grow as leaders. Within the technology industry, the ‘war on talent’ is a hot topic. Leaders are having trouble retaining talent in their organizations, and a good salary is not something they can differentiate on anymore. So you could argue, what is the difference between an employee and a volunteer when a good salary has become a commodity? In Nick’s church, people are led through 3 steps, 1. getting to know God, 2. finding freedom and 3. making a difference. Nick’s equivalent tactic for a business context is 1. knowing your purpose, 2. setting you up for success and 3. making a difference. Nick shares tactics that have proven to be helpful in leading volunteers and maintaining a high quality of output. From the people who make the coffee on Sundays to the people who manage sound, lighting and live streaming, all the way to the Pastors themselves, nobody is paid a thing. How? People want to invest their time because they are becoming better persons by being involved. The focus of leadership is on helping people grow.
