Use Opportunities – Promote Innovations – Secure the Future. This was the motto for the first yearly conference organized by Stiftung 2° on the 22nd floor of the Bahn Tower in Berlin.
For 5 years now, the Stiftung 2° brings together German CEO’s to work together with science, politics and society to achieve long-term and concrete solutions for ambitious and efficient climate protection.
Initiator and Co-Founder of Stiftung 2°, Dr. Michael Otto opened the conference, which was attended by honorable guests such as Chairman of the Board at Deutsche Bahn Dr. Rüdiger Grube, Parliamentary State Secretary Rita Schwarzelühr-Sutter and Prof. Dr. Klaus Töpfer.
I had the privilege to host this important and fascinating event and guide the audience and participants through an exiting day full of powerful discussions and presentations.
Everything starts with an idea. Over 160 ideas were submitted and 27 finalists chosen for the idea challenge “YOU4Quality”, initiated by Daimler’s Quality Management. The 27 international teams from Germany, USA and China presented their innovations at the Daimler Center of Excellence in Sindelfingen.
At the end of the day, a jury selected the top 10 teams who received an award, money and support from a mentor to develop their prototypes within the next 3 months.
I had the privilege to host this event full of exciting ideas and creative presentations, directed and supported by the wonderful team from Zibert + Friends, who made this day a lot of fun for everyone.
More than 800 million in the world go hungry every day. The goal of the World Food Programme is to achieve zero hunger by the year 2030. The WFP Innovation Accelerator, headed by Bernhard Kowatsch, was founded to accelerate innovations that help fight global hunger and spread them around the globe.
At the official opening of the World Food Programme Innovation Accelerator in Munich, prestigious guests such as the German Foreign Minister Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the Federal Minister of Economic Cooperation and Development Dr. Gerd Müller and the Bavarian Minister for Food, Agriculture and Forestry, Helmut Brunner spoke to the audience. A very special highlight was the speech from the Executive Director of the World Food Programme, Ertharin Cousin.
I was honoured and privileged to present this great event, with innovation pitch sessions in the morning and the official opening ceremony in the afternoon, under the direction of the always superb team from Zibert + Friends.
The 30th Wincor Nixdorf International Management Seminar was held in Madrid, Spain. Over 180 delegates from 39 countries discussed current issues facing the retail banking industry with selected speakers and a community of international peers.
Once again, I had the privilege to be the moderator at this prestigious event, supported by a wonderful team in the most beautiful setting of the Silken Puerta América Hotel.
Together with event director and production expert Chris Cuhls, I developed the Masterclass “Presentation Excellence”. This Masterclass for anyone wishing to improve their presentation skills in front of an audience.
Our approach is to make your presentation a dialogue between you and your audience that is fun for both parties.
The two day Masterclass covers multiple aspects of you as a human being (body language, rhetorics, voice, breathing), as well as your contents (storytelling, stage, audiovisual tools) to give you the right tools for true presentation excellence.
This Masterclass is currently in German only. We are planning to do an English Masterclass as soon as we have enough participants requesting the English version. So please send us an email, if you’re interested in the English Masterclass.

Delegates from almost 200 countries will join the climate conference COP21 in Paris, France with the common goal to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C.
The Stiftung 2 Grad wants to manifest the support of the German economy for this new climate agreement and therefore invited supporters and guests from business, politics and the media to travel together on the “Train to Paris”, of course CO2-neutral.
Topics such as climate friendly mobility, renewable energies and efficiency in resources where presented in various round tables, presentations and panel discussions. Among the participants where the German Secretary of the Environment Dr. Barbara Hendricks, Ronald Pofalla, Dr. Michael Otto, Prof. Dirk Messner and selected CEO’s from large German corporations.
Together with the president of the board at Stiftung 2 Grad, Sabine Nallinger, I had the honour and privilege to host this incredible Event on our way to a political event that will determine the future of our planet.
