for the Corporate Sector

Since 2010 I have consulted companies and institutions world wide in applying Design Thinking and creativity methods to change their working culture and in solving their product- and internal challenges; I have coached them in pursuing with their goals and wrote concepts and co-created programs that would enable and support that change systematically.

for the Cultural Sector

While the every day live of people has drastically changed over the last 100 years, the classical music standard concert is still more or less the same as it was when created around 1880. As a musicologist and „innovationalist" I want to understand how to meet the needs of younger generations in that specific genre and in cultural projects in general. After doing my own research and running the innovative festival Piano City Berlin, I now consult festivals and talk about the gained insights in public to help classical music enter the future.

for the Educational Sector

As the „educationalist“ Sir Ken Robinson once said: “Creativity is as important now in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status” I am "teaching", better enabling people, in different educational institutions such as the School of Design Thinking and Design Academy Berlin. I design exercises and workshops that show the creative potential and enhance creative and methodical confidence. And I consult educational institutions to set up design thinking departments and train their teachers that enables them.
