Kristjan-Paul Raude Shares Advice on Digital Marketing
Sun is shining, birds are singing and it's the first Friday of May. Everything points to being outside and enjoying the weather but still Kristjan-Paul Raude managed to gather a full house to listen to his seminar-workshop about digital marketing. The seminar "How to build your brand and surpass your competition in Google [Search -- Ed]" was organized by UT Idea Lab in co-operation with Tartu University Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and Tartu County Government.
Kristjan-Paul Raude is the CEO and strategist at WSI Online/WWW Marketing OÜ. The audience consisted of students, marketing and sales specialists from different businesses and entrepreneurs.
Raude gave tips about digital marketing and illustrated them with practical examples. In the second part of the seminar, Raude asked the audience to form groups and think of a persona (a concrete representative of the target audience) for a business. The groups presented their personas and that brought out points that businesses need to think about while marketing for their target audience, like the visibility and uniqueness of the business.
Kristjan-Paul Raude gave Tartu University faculty of Economics five copies of "Digital Minds", a handbook on digital marketing written by 12 consultants from the WSI marketing agency. WSI marketing agency was founded in 1995 and is currently active in 80 countries with close to a 100 consultants. The head of WSI marketing agency in Estonia since 2008 is Kristjan-Paul Raude himself. If anyone is interested in this book, all you need to do is step by UT Idea Lab.

NGAL 3.0 Tartu camp: learning, working hard and getting new experiences!
As the first and second day were full of interesting talks and valuable lessons, we decided to put some more focus on teamwork and getting things done during the next days. However, those days were full of new experiences: meetings with experienced investors, lecture on history, tour at SPARK and University of Tartu, trying out Estonian sauna and visiting Narva, the easternmost point of EU!
Second day of NGAL®: lots of team time, visit to Mooncascade, design thinking and one-to-one mentoring with Helen Kokk!
Tuesday, 6th June was the second day of NGAL ® and well, it was even more fun! We started the day off with the reflection, got some sun during the team time, visited Mooncascade - one of the coolest IT companies in Tartu - talked about design thinking and UX with wonderful Helen Kokk and ended our day with amazing pasta!
