Leading the product planning, product design, product marketing and product development functions for an experiential learning product portfolio brings me to the cutting edge of education technology - and I love it! Using the insights of my 8 years of experience in software development and management, I am currently managing a globally distributed agile development team of smart, talented and passionate engineers, designers and analysts and together we are pushing the limits of today's education on our mission to connect work and learning with technology.
Teaching, mentoring and coaching more than 100 professional and postgraduate innovation teams in the NEXT Innovation Challenge provided me with the skills needed to assess, analyse and provide feedback at all stages of the innovation process from ideation, problem definition and prototyping to delivering a valuable business model innovation pitch to investor panels.
As a former moderator for FORMULA 1 and DTM, the European touring car championship, I have extensive experience in public speaking, interviewing and presenting in front of groups up to 10,000 people.
I started my IT career over a decade ago at VEDA GmbH, a German software development company and became Germany's first and (to date) only dual IT apprentice. TV coverage from a decade ago explains my early start in more detail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dalFTYbXu2g
