The Portera Connect Podcast

In the world of business, it’s very easy to get disconnected. Although we spend more time on social media, more time in meetings and definitely more time solving problems and adding value for our clients, it becomes very easy to forget the human side of business. The human side of business is the people that comprise it. Individuals with unique experiences and knowledge we can learn something from. At Portera, we spend most of our time solving problems, adding value and building meaningful solutions for our clients. In this series called “Connect”, we focus on specifically the people. Speaking with existing clients, connecting with new ones and having interesting conversations around meaningful topics.
