Evolutionary networking: Get to know fellow creative bureaucrats in a fun and meaningful way!
We will work together in an evolutionary way, in four different stages. STAGE ONE – The Big Bang … no… – the Big Bingo!… We will match the participants randomly in a human bingo. The goal is to meet and discuss with as many people as possible. STAGE TWO – The first stars appear… We sort people by topic in one-to-one discussions (“memory”) STAGE THREE – Early galaxies appear… We offer tables with different topics/challenges. All of them will be moderated. The topics will be discussed from different perspectives. The goal is to create one solution per table. The motto: From theory to practice. STAGE FOUR – Back to earth and the modern galaxies… We address challenges in the bigger group by using the fishbowl methodology to share thoughts with the whole group. Come, have fun, and be surprised!
As a consultant at BABLE GmbH, I work with national and international companies, ministries, public authorities as well as cities and municipalities to support them in overcoming strategic challenges in the rapidly changing energy sector and in digitalisation processes. In my more than 10 years at the Center for Innovative Energy Systems (ZIES), I have been working on solutions to transformation processes caused by flexibilization of the energy sector, digitalization and urban solutions, among others. At the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf, I teach courses on sustainable energy management and economics and lead Erasmus+ program activities.
