Savvy Talks with Eric Romba
Attorney-at-Law & Partner, lindenpartners
What was your first job ever? What did you learn from it?
I worked in a steel mill, double shift six days a week for four weeks as a pupil. My take away: learn well and go to study not to end in the mill.
What is the best advice you ever got?
What are your personal rules for success?
Work hard, but do not forget your personal life. It´s all about the balance.
What is your best habit?
What is your worst?
I like to sort the items in the refrigerator.
Which (living or deceased) person would you like to have dinner with?
The Queen. She is a master of discipline.
Who is your favorite artist?
Leonor Antunes. Her art is covering two of my interests: architecture and design. I enjoy seeing her installations.
What is your favorite book?
“Wartime Lies” by Louis Begley. Begley, a trained lawyer, is a master of words. It reminds me of following my dream and once writing a fiction piece as well.
Please describe the year 2019 with three words.
Greta. Tokenization. Sylt.
In which field(s) would you like to see more innovation in 2020 and beyond?
Let us use digitization in all fields of life to improve our living.
