The most important conference of the year – and things that are even more important…

KMWorld (Knowledge Management World) and ESDDC (Enterprise Search and Discovery) are two conferences co-hosted the same week, same location in Washington DC every year. Without any doubt, this is the most important professional event of every year: all the thought leaders are there, and it is always a great opportunity to see fellow colleagues, partners,…

Raising Multi-Lingual Children

Raising Multi-Lingual Children

When I was a child, my biggest (very ambitious!) dream was to be able to travel the world. However, besides the financial background my parents had, there was another problem: we did not speak any languages besides Hungarian, and we did not even had a chance. Given that I was a child in the communist era,…

300 Days

300 Days

It was March 4, 2020, when my almost empty flight from Copenhagen, Denmark landed in Budapest, Hungary. The pandemic already had been around us, and already had impacted my travel plans for the rest of March and April — but I had no idea the magnitude of its impact on our lives in the following…

Work-life balance?!

Work-life balance?!

Wednesday morning. Wake up at 3:30am to catch my flight at 6am. Work in Antwerp and Brussels Wed and Thu. Thursday evening, two conferences and several meetings later: let’s go home! Massive flight delay on the way back, due to thunderstorms above Europe. Landing at BUD at 1am then driving home. Almost 3am when I…

Expect the unexpected

Expect the unexpected

As a mother of three, unexpected things are constantly part of our lives. Someone gets sick. Something is needed for the school — the very next day. Something gets lost. You name it. The only way I’ve found to work for us is to expect these unexpected things. Of course, I don’t mean to worry…

Guilt Management for Mothers

Guilt Management for Mothers

In the last few days, I was reading Sheryl Sandberg’s book: Lean In — Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. (Thank you my friend, Vanessa for the recommendation!) I am planning to write a separate post about the book itself, but one sentence of Sheryl resonated me a lot. She writes:“Guilt management can be just as important as…

Tomorrow’s Thought Leaders Today

Tomorrow’s Thought Leaders Today

‘Thought Leader’ and ‘Influencer’ are very much buzz words across the digital space (that’s another one!). Very few people who become leaders in this field actually set out to self-style themselves to be a thought leader or influencer in my opinion. I think they just did their thing, shared it, and people began to be…

It’s Never too Early to Start

It’s Never too Early to Start

One of my favorite Facebook pages, A Mighty Girl, posted a great article recently which really resonated with me as a mom and as a mentor: I’ve mentioned their page before and the reason I especially like it is that it is specifically for our young girls and young women. Their messages are always positive and…

Prime Time — The Importance of Communication

Prime Time — The Importance of Communication

I share the (quite common) belief that if you don’t have a habit of open and continual communication with your kids, then neither will they with you. I don’t intend to simplify the syndrome typical to many kids who, upon reaching teenage years, think that the last (cool) person on earth to talk to is their…
