Back helping corporate innovation ventures @ Bertelsmann Creativity Bootcamp 2020 in Berlin

Excited and honored to be invited back for the FIFTH year in a row to support Bertelsmann University at the Creativity Bootcamp in Berlin!

The Bertelsmann Creativity Bootcamp is a three day event that brings together employees from around the world that have great creative business ideas to work on them and present.

What I do is that I help them get ready to pitch management for buy-in with my Pitching Masterclass and by coaching the individual teams through the process of taking an idea into a plausible solution and business proposition.

An update from +ANDERSEN & ASSOCIATES

As some of you might know, I also run a company called +ANDERSEN & ASSOCIATES on the side. We help medium and large companies and organisations around the world get serious about innovation and delivering actual results instead of PowerPoints.

I thought I’d take a couple of minutes to update you on how we’ve been adapting to better meet your needs in these trying times.

tl;dr – We now offer all our programs and services also via remote (in the best possible quality available today) as an option for you.

Whether you’re back in the regular office or still working remotely from home, we’re providing you with our popular programs like directly to you in the conferencing tools you already use, in the quality you’ve come to expect.

Everything you’re seeing in this video is taken directly from our streaming studio. This is how it actually looks in your normal conferencing app.

And for the highest quality possible over the Internet today, we also offer a completely new direct point to point streaming solution – in full HD, with no dropped frames, no screen freeze, and no audio issues.

Also, by popular demand we’re now offering moderation and management of internal and public online events for those of you looking for quality outsourced alternatives.

For those of you who are new to remote working and online collaboration, have no fear, we of course offer you training, both for your managers and for all of the program participants in advance.

Thank you for your time, stay safe.
