Hello there! I am Antti, founder of Ohrling Ltd, a specialised marketing strategy & go-to-market firm operating in Europe, China and India.
In 2005 I invented and co-founded Blyk, the first and original ad-funded mobile network and was the chairman of Blyk Media India until April 2012, successfully bringing our acclaimed service to Indian sub-continent. I took care of Blyk brand and all go-to-market activities with my great team and briefly acted as CEO of Blyk UK during our successful business model change in 2009. Prior to that I founded Contra Advertising Group, the first international advertising group grown out of Finland into three continents. During my career I have worked in companies operating in FMCG, Retail & Wholesale, Media, Advertising and Telecommunication industries. I am a Fellow at RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Art, Manufactures and Commerce, UK), Honorary Member of Board in MMA APAC and give regular speeches on go-to-market strategies and brand issues for international audiences. I am also inventor of over 20 international patents.
I admire and adhere to entrepreneurial spirit in every occasion. Creativity is needed to fuel corporate strategies and efficiency is always best achieved by engaging the entire staff with the company’s goals. And to have loyal and passionate employees in the company, it needs a very good and compelling reason to exist.
