Driving User-Centered and Sustainable Innovation
I am an experienced innovation expert working mainly in Europe and the USA. I support companies in developing and implementing digital strategies, creating innovative products and introducing user-centered innovation processes.
I worked with more than 30 clients in communication, media, consumer goods, and tech — both as an external consultant, as well as an interim manager in residence. My own experience as a manager and founder helps me to tackle pressing issues with my clients effectively, like the reinvention of digital business models and products and the redesign of workflows and organizational structures.
After many years in various management positions at Austria’s leading media platform Standard.at, which I co-founded in 1995, I set up my own innovation consultancy “The Engagement Lab” in 2013. I deepened my expertise in the field of digital innovation in 2012 during a one year research and work stay as a Knight Fellowship Affiliate at Stanford University. I focused on digital business strategies and user-centered product development in the heart of Silicon Valley, receiving training at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the Stanford School of Design (D‑School).
After several years in Vienna, Palo Alto, Hamburg, Zurich, and Oxford, I am now based in New York City but travel to Europe on a frequent basis.
