Angelika E. Ardelt
Founding Partner & Director
Responsible for The Islands of the Bahamas, Sun Life, The Fife Arms, Los Cabos
Cities of my life:
Friedrichshafen – Freiburg – London – Nassau – Wiesbaden
Born under the sign of:
Taurus, ascendant capricorn – so, I am a double-antlers.
Heroes of my childhood:
Clarence, the squinting lion. Flipper, the clever dolphin. Lassie, the ever so brave collieand of course Fury, the omniscient stallion.
My first vinyl record/cassette/CD:
Vinyl record: Saturday Night Fever by the Gibbs Brothers and John Travolta.
My favourite pet/animal:
My tom-cat Peter.
This would be my super power:
My desired super-power would be the ability to travel through time & space.Because it is always helpful to know what happened before and what is going to happen.
I have a weakness for:
Modern architecture and modern design – and of course a glass of chilled white wine, preferably Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling from the area where I live.
Three things for my suitcase:
I never travel without my globules; never without my hot-water bottles. Because if anything fails (see above) a hot-water bottle doesn’t. And of course never without my favourite pyjamas, disregarding where I go to.
Top 3 on my bucket list:
No1 and 2 have remained the same for the past few years. No. 3 varies depending on the level of my physical fitness.
No 1: Flying into the Orbit
No 2: See the Northern Lights
No 3: Do the Pacific Crest trail like Rees Witherspoon did.
Online or print:
Print for the breakfast table, the lazy Sunday in bed or time on the bach and online for anything that has to do with travelling.
What I really like about my job:
Turning round seemingly hopeless communications situations, developing strategies that fit like a glove and “same-same but different”. Same job but completely different approach. That’s my bread&butter in my profession. Which, by the way is the best profession in the whole world.
Job-related magic moments:
Undoubtedly, the founding of our wonderful small boutique agency more than 30 years ago together with my soulmate Birgit whom I met during our first year at University. And the swimming pigs of the Bahamas – the best USP we ever found and developed for any of our clients.
My life motto…
NIPSILD – which roughly translates into: Don’t think in problems, think in solutions.
