In partnership with 

“Just go for it & be bold!” 


EMEA Recruitment were delighted to welcome Erik Neutzner from Liberty Global as a guest on our podcast recently. 


In this episode, the focus is very much on learning, development and career progression.  You will find some great advice here for anyone looking to emulate Erik’s fantastic career across a range of different countries, which he refers to as his “International tour” 


Erik covers areas such as continuous learning, setting priorities, taking advantage of opportunities when they arise, taking action, challenging yourself and the importance of patience. 


We also discuss the changing role of the finance function, and the importance of business partnering.  In addition we discuss the challenges of recruiting on the basis of potential and how applicants can help themselves to highlight they indeed have potential.
