Tech Leaders Series: Ory Weihs, Founder, Odeon

2 1 0

Welcome to my Tech Leaders Interview Series, where I interview impactful leaders and ask them to share tips and techniques that have benefited them, both in their personal and professional lives.

This interview is with Ory Weihs, Founder at Team Odeon.

About Ory:

Ory is an Israeli founder and investor living in Prague.

He founded XLMedia PLC and was its CEO until 2019, including overseeing its London IPO. Since 2010, Ory has invested in companies from different sectors, including SAAS, gaming, price comparison, and more. Some of his current holdings include Mews, Medorion, Gigantic, Accomando.

His latest venture, Team Odeon, focuses on improving access to education and vocational training.

Q: What are your main productivity tips?

Regarding productivity, after close to 20 years, I still experiment daily and probably will continue for the foreseeable future. It’s pretty rare to find a specific prescribed system that works.

To simplify, I break up productivity into several elements.

These elements could be things like work/life balance (especially relevant with the rise of work from home), task lists, time management (meetings, focus time, “off-time work”).

It’s plenty to digest there, but here are some easy wins:

*Set clear time boundaries between different tasks.

*Make sure meetings have a clear agenda, attendee lists that make sense and don’t be afraid to decline or suggest changes.

*This might contradict a bit but sometimes also when you are “off” but the mood strikes, go for it. Even thinking of answers for this question came while “taking time off.”

I’m sure this is not for everyone, but music helps me; reach out for some playlists if you want!

Another tip is not to enslave yourself to productivity tools. I have bought and downloaded so many tools which I ended up not using or “not committing to.” Some work, some don’t, but please be critical of them as any other tool you use.........
