In our fast-paced world, traditional thinking is getting us nowhere fast. Time to advance!"



My business career includes both global corporations and startups. In strategic leadership and management positions with Audi and VW, it was my responsibility to ramp up high performance teams to meet strategic corporate objectives. I have honed a T-shaped skillset through a variety of academic training and real-world business practice. I hold degrees in electrical engineering and business economics (MBA) with distinction


I leverage strong international networks in business, politics and academics to create innovative solutions and unique business opportunities. Combining diverse academic studies in technical and human fields, I provide a multidisciplinary approach that drives organizations and individuals to excel. I have a strong track-record proving my ability to outline bold visions and appropriate strategies to drive success


I am founder and mentor to several technology companies where I create and execute ideas for maximum effect and oversee implementation via the strengths of my network. We strive for constant improvement and to outperform each of our previous achievements. Dedicated to collaboration and driven by curiosity, I tackle complexity by melding technology, politics, economics, and sociology


I am a visionary strategist, consulting for C-level Management and Investors with a willingness to question traditional approaches in our fast-paced and complex world. My talent is to develop the right framework, organizational structure and culture for your unique business environment and vision. With a full understanding of complexity, I align teams and unleash your organization's full potential


To drive your overall vision, strategy plans are partly based on presumptions, estimations and predictions. In our fast-paced world, most of them are outdated by the time action takes place. In such strategies, leaders are missing out to take advantage of short-term opportunities. I operate worldwide and introduce a superior framework that copes with complexity and dynamics


I provide a deep understanding of the interdependencies between economics, politics, technology and sociology. Globally. My presentations are custom-tailored for your event, audience, and objectives. Joyfully infotaining, I will share a new-way of thinking that dissolves artificial boundaries, overcomes limitations and pushes the frontier way beyond what seemed possible

How Nation States Can Build A Viable World For 11 Billion People

Earth is currently accommodating about 7 billion people. Caused by our habits and living, we would need two of them to remain in balance. The United Nations predict humanity to grow up to 11 billion people in 2100. Therefore, it is time to reconsider our habits, alliances and politics. Why is it so difficult to promote long term objectives and adjust governance to safeguard our survival and foster long term prosperity?

Challenged during an international authorship meeting in 2015, I was invited to analyze current shortcomings and rethink our current mechanisms of national and international politics and society. Written by Gerhard Knies, Lars Holger Engelhard and Stefanie A. Engelhard, with input from Hans Blauel, Jürgen Scheffran and Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker, we present our thoughts on a new world that could accommodate human mankind and ensure prosperity. Our approach is to introduce mechanisms to foster long term thinking and respect interdependencies between nations. Viable World Network Design invites for open collaboration to develop our initial ideas.
