Speaker, Author, Thought Leader, Media Partner, Advisor and Consultant

How to work with me? 

I am regularly key-note speaker, moderator,  panelist or judge at pitch-competitions at tech conferences around the world. In addition I write articles for blogs or books - focusing on the digital transformation of traditional industries, international market insights or increasing the chances of success for promising start-ups. 


For this goal I often consult start-ups, or support corporations in their digital endeavors for example as sparring partner in digital questions or on their advisory board. I also support due diligence for investors  - mostly checking product strategy, development processes and the team. 


So when you need a speaker, someone from my network or a consultant I am happy to hear from you. Feel free to click contact. If you, your conference or your company wants to become a media partner of digitalscouting.de, please also contact me.
