WHY

The digital revolution is changing almost everything: the way we communicate and work, how we do business, how customers behave and what employees expect. There will not be one single trend that will finally succeed. The only thing that prevails is constant change.

Organizations therefore need to transform the way they work to not only survive, but thrive in times of rapid and constant change. With innovative products and services for their customers and with inspiring, participatory and productive processes and environments for their employees. 

Seeking to develop and implement new (digital) strategies, innovate and meet altered demands is the key, but the way most organizations work has barely changed: meetings, workshops, conferences and trainings are predominantly hierarchical, unproductive and not very creative. 

 

 

To create innovative and different outcomes, approaches and mindsets need to be transformed. To leverage this transformation and stay innovative, new formats for exchange, collaboration and learning are needed. 

HOW

How I work is driven and inspired by a design-mindset. I am not focusing on creating beautiful surfaces, but on methods and tools as well the overall mindset that empowers new and different ways of working and therefore transformation. 

Design offers tools that enable new processes and ways of working, which in turn create better and more valuable and innovative outcomes. This means work that is more agile and iterative, more empathic and user-centered as well as more visual and therefore collaborative, participative and experienced-focused, holistic and purpose driven. 

Being lead by a design mindset does not only create better results (more innovative focused on real user needs); it empowers people (employees, customers, partners, users) to work with a design processes to apply design tools that are agile, iterative, creative, inspirational and purpose-driven. 

#1 Consulting, Concept Development and Documentation

RELATED PROJECTS: Digital Bauhaus Summit, HackAdemy, Synchronicity, Magazine Sprint, EnergyHack Workshop 

#Transformation processes #Workshop design #Organizational transformation #Event Experience Design #Experience Design #Documentation  #Content production

 

I support by consulting and developing new formats (conferences, workshops, outcome-focused sprints, productive meetings, trainings, festivals etc.) that empower change and new ways of working, innovating, learning, collaborating, participating and experiencing.
Alongside these new formats I also develop documentation strategies, to make sure the outcomes created are not lost or forgotten, but documented in a sustainable and impactful way. 

#2 Process Facilitation, Moderation and Implementation

RELATED PROJECTS: Science Hack Day, Summit of newthinking, EnergyHack Workshop, Berlin Buzzwords

#Facilitation #Team coaching #Innovation facilitation #Innovation sprints #Implementation #Innovation processes

To implement innovative formats, I support by facilitating and moderating workshops, innovation processes and sprints (mainly using innovation methods such as Service Design and Design Thinking). I also support with the curation and production of lager projects such as conferences on request. 
For most formats, I work with a co-moderator from my network to generate the best experiences and most productive process possible. For larger groups, I collaborate with additional facilitators and moderators. 

#3 Empowerment and Skills Training;
Service Design and Design Thinking Coaching and Training 

RELATED PROJECTS: Design Thinking and Service Design Trainings, Workshop-Design and Facilitation Training 

#Skill training #Facilitation training #Moderation training #Design Thinking #Service Design

 

To sustainably grow and transform, I empower organizations, teams and individuals by teaching them the skills to facilitate and guide workshops, innovation and transformation processes themselves. As part of this, I host method trainings (Service Design, Design Thinking).

#4 Innovation Spaces

RELATED PROJECT: Summit of newthinking 

#Innovation spaces #Conference spaces #Meeting spaces

Besides new formats, physical spaces also need to be transformed to facilitate new ways of working and learning. I support with the development of temporary spaces (for conferences, workshops etc.) as well permanent innovation spaces. 

 

#5 Coaching 

#Coaching #Personal and professional development

 

 

 

Through coaching, I empower individuals to discover their core values and true potential to experience authentic growth. I support my clients by reflecting theirs skills and strengths, and holding them accountable to their goals.
