Olaf in a few words

Seit etwas über 20 Jahren bin ich in der Schnittstelle zwischen Marketing und Technologie zuhause. Nach dem BWL-Studium (Marketing/ International Management) habe ich ein Technologieunternehmen gegründet. Als Unternehmer waren meine Rollen mannigfaltig, je nach Team- und Partnerkonstellation eher technologie- oder marketinglastig, aber immer strategisch aufgestellt.

In meinen 12 Jahren in New York habe ich meine kleine Firma mit einer anderen verschmolzen und an ein Brandingunternehmen verkauft. Dort war ich Partner & Head of Technology und für Digital Strategies unserer Kunden verantwortlich. Mit meinem Team habe ich bei großen (Re-)Branding Projekten vor Allem die digitalen Aspekte betreut und neben der Digital Strategy auch Systeme zum Brand Management entwickelt und ausgerollt (u.a. für American Airlines und PayPal).

Im Laufe meiner Karriere habe ich viele multidisziplinäre Teams aufgebaut und geführt. Seit drei Jahren moderiere ich Workshops basierend auf agilen Methoden und Design Thinking.

Am besten sehe ich mich eingesetzt in Projekten, in denen man Teilnehmer mit unterschiedlichen Hintergründen (Design, Konzept, Entwickler) koordinieren und motivieren muss, um in kurzer Zeit einen hohen Output zu generieren. Gerne arbeite ich agil, in Sprints und Co-Creation Workshops, die ich vor-, nachbereite und führe.
