Hello! My name is Marcus Podorf.
I love building great teams, brands, and businesses and providing value.
For 20 years, I have worked with SMBs and premium, luxury, and global brands, advised start-ups, and built successful business units for different companies.
I also helped many individuals to grow and professionalise their businesses, and supported them to build different new revenue streams based on their core values, experience and principles.
Some of them won recognised awards the second year after starting professionalising and extending their businesses – such as the ‘Grimme Online Preis’. And all of them were reaching new audiences and income streams already after the first year.
There’s no business but a dream to live.
That is why I started The Berlin Strategy School™ – a full suite of professional business tools and courses to support you to build and grow a sustainable business from the scratch, based on personal and professional experiences, and proven insight.
