I’ve been living in Silicon Valley since 2001. I am researching technology trends, write books and consult companies on topics such as Innovation, Silicon Valley Mindset, Foresight Mindset, Automotive, AI, Creativity, Intrapreneurship. For many years I worked at SAP as development manager and innovation strategist.
Now I help companies how they can apply the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit from Silicon Valley in their organizations, to be more innovative and discover trends earlier and influence them.
I give keynotes about these topics and conduct workshops on Foresight Mindset, Innovation, Silicon Valley-Mindset, Automotive, Creativity, and Intrapreneurship. I also look at signals of emerging technology trends and how they impact society, politics, or employment.
I also host and meet delegations from other countries in Silicon Valley and bring them contact with people and companies here.
Some of my last books were Foresight Mindset: The Art and Science to Design Your Future (published in April 2019 in German) and The Last Driver’s License Holder … Has Already Been Born (available October 2019 in English)
Another book is Das Silicon Valley Mindset (publishes March 2016 in German), which elaborates on the elements that form the innovative and entrepreneurial mindset in Silicon Valley and how we can combine that with our own strengths.
My next book will be about Artificial Intelligence with the title (in German) When Monkeys Teach Monkeys and will be available in spring 2020.
