“Innovate or die!” This is a quote of Nick Sohnemann, one of the Forum’s keynote speakers. His main interest is in what determines tomorrow and changes the agenda today. This concerns both the future of innovation itself as well as the future of technology. He predicts how the workplace will look in the future or how digitisation will evolve. Holding a degree from the Hamburg Media School and an MBA from the University of Westminster in London, Sohnemann is always on the lookout for models of successful innovation. He knows all the state-of-the-art methods and presents them in a scientifically sound but entertaining way. How can medium-sized companies gain momentum and implement a start-up thinking culture? He has already accompanied many companies in this process, including Sparkassen, Telefonica, TESA AG and Vereinsbanken.

After Sohnemanns keynote, you will better understand how agile management works. You will understand why leaders have to be role models. You will learn how to strengthen the ability to innovate and how to anchor innovation methods sustainably. And last but not least: how to open up new business models, new markets and new professions. The founder and CEO of “Future Candy” has also inspired and convinced large companies, including Porsche, SAP, Airbus, Vodafone and many others.
