#02 | Luis José Borges - How to shape a meaningful career with purpose
In this episode, I talked to and learned a lot from Luis José Borges, Innovation Manager at Zalando. Luis explains how mentorship helped him to shape his career and how he became a mentor himself to support startups in Africa. We will talk about why it’s not about luck in life, but about being prepared, why for him there is no line between work & life and why it’s important to constantly learn in all directions.
Luis describes 5 dimensions which are crucial for companies to drive innovation and how he organizes your life to fulfill his goals. This episode is packed with knowledge and inspiration: Lean back and enjoy the ride.
