World Business Dialogue – Review
Fabio, Benedikt and Dominic spent three days in Cologne for the World Business Dialogue last week from March 13-15. It was an inspirational convention that helped us create new insights. Day 1 was fully packed with panel discussions and keynote speeches. Among others, we were especially impressed by the talks of Suhas Gopinath who shared his experiences as an entrepreneur starting at the age of fourteen and of Prof. Kenneth P. Morse who spoke about failures, how to overcome them and the art of pitching your idea to a Venture Capitalist.
On day 2 of the convention we had the opportunity to host a Design Thinking workshop to a bunch of interested visitors. After we suggested to take off their ties, an open and inspirational atmosphere emerged.
After three rounds of brainstorming followed by a prototyping session which addressed the subject of trust, the participants were happy to share their prototypes with the others. Thanks to the great work of all participants, we were able to generate new insights on that subject for our own idea.
