in detail

Benjamin BlessingMy name is Benjamin Blessing and I am a consultant, blogger and traveller.

I am working for PPI AG which is a consulting company based in Hamburg, Germany. PPI AG has been working successfully for banks and insurance companies for 30 years. At the moment I am accompanying a software rollout at one of our customers.

In the UK I used to work for The Hut Group trading the German website with core ranges in quirky home and garden products, novelty gifts and cool gadgets. This challenging job requires an eye on sales and margin while analysing market demand using Google Analytics and Microsoft Excel and collaborating with marketing departments to increase website traffic.

The blog random brick [DE] is used to spread my random thought across the web mainly focusing on technology and computer topics. After graduating from university and while I was looking for jobs I decided to set up my own blog. Hence the first blog posts dates back to the 11th October 2013.

A couple of years ago I discovered my passion for travelling. Since then I have visited several countries such as the United States, Iceland and Malta. I prefer to do short breaks and spend a couple of days in cities such as London, New York or Berlin instead of 2 weeks at a beach.

More information about me can be found on my CV and please feel free to connect via social networks.
