Speaking & writing

I believe writing is a good reflection tool for your work, practical as well as theoretical work. Therefore, I write. I speak, because I have lots of ideas, thoughts and questions to share with others and I am really curious to see and experience a reflection on my thoughts from the audience. When I moderate, I listen to others, ask questions and create an engaging conversation with all participants.

„Meaningful change is an invitation to become better versions of our personal selves, our companies, and better versions of the world we live in by making more conscious decisions about it."

Read it here (in German):

Für ein Designverständnis in der Mitte der Gesellschaft / For an understanding of design in the middle of society
