Martin Oetting

Dr. Martin Oetting has helped build the Word-of-Mouth Marketing firm trnd for over a decade, and also wrote his doctoral dissertation about Word of Mouth. He used to give speeches on the subject, too – sometimes they were even entertaining (DE|EN). His blog ConnectedMarketing was one of the leading marketing blogs in the early days of Social Media in Germany. Martin left trnd and the marketing field in early 2016.

Currently, he's planning new things with Omnipolis Media. His first big project is Kaffee & Kapital, a public discussion (in German) about the state of our democracies and the future of capitalism and democracy. The second project is "vollehalle", a political entertainment show that looks at the state of the world and what to do about it, against the backdrop of climate change. And for something completely different: Omnipolis Media is also in the middle of producing a comedy short film. And last year, Martin released his first animated film through Omnipolis.

He likes to draw, and publish random ramblings on the Internet -- not only here, also on Twitter (often in German, sometimes in English, very rarely in French or Italian). is also his blog. Jon Tufty is his alter ego for all things music.
