Lars Silberbauer – Wild Business Growth Podcast #114: Leading LEGO to Social Media Stardom

When I think of my childhood, I think of LEGOs. Simple as that. So does this week’s Wild Business Growth Podcast guest, Lars Silberbauer. Lars served as Senior Global Director of Social Media & Video at LEGO Group. When he started, they didn’t even have a Facebook page. After years of work by him and his team, Adweek named LEGO the #1 brand on social media. Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and your other favorite podcast platforms.
