THE DIGITAL LEADER

NICK SOHNEMANN

Nick is convinced that the time we live in is comparable to the time when computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the Internet. No one knew back then that there will be companies like Google, Facebook or Amazon.

As a passionate keynote speaker beyond the mainstream, he shakes things up. The digital tornado impacts all industries, so if you just watch from the sidelines you are missing the opportunity to shape the future.

Through the mixture of scientifically founded facts and concrete business cases, Nick puts buzzwords like digitization, disruption and Internet of Things in context.

Instead of preaching theory, Nick seeks to join forces with the audience for more innovation in companies. His inimitable stage presence wins over even the biggest skeptics.

ROMAN WEISHÄUPL

His specialties include - apart from keynote presentations - mentoring startups on their hard and exhausting business path. In addition, he led a network of over 80 globally working trendspotters and helped clients around the world drive forward innovation.


THE INNOVATIONS SPECIALIST

LASSE UFFRECHT

 
Virtual or Augmented Reality, 3D Printing, Robotics, the Internet of Things or Artificial Intelligence - Lasse Uffrecht introduces you to the latest disruptive technologies. Illustrating them clearly and with concrete best practice examples, he helps companies to understand the future.

Innovative methods and new technologies are Lasse's passion.
