Two days at the Summit “The Future of Digital”

Students of the ISM have had the chance to win a free ticket for the Summit „The Future of Digital“ held by the 1000 Vordenker group in Hamburg on 12th and 13th November. This exclusive group was initiated by Karl Krainer and David Fauck of the consultancy „Gedankenfabrik“ to discuss zeitgeist issues and  to set in motion a multifaceted and inspiring exchange of ideas with interesting people. A fundamental component of the thought leader idea are the 1000 Vordenker events, at which visionaries from the most varied professions, companies and schools of thought come together. This year, ISM students could submit ideas for a new digital offer to the competition that was monitored by ISM- Professor Dr. Ute Rademacher.

ISM student Sebastian Woller submitted his proposition for a new, profitable app and convinced the digital experts of his cutting-edge thinking. He joined the 2-days event that started with a casual get together held in a local arts gallery to be followed by a full day filled with presentations of digital trends, global perspectives on the future of digital and lots of coffee breaks and idea generation sessions to allow inspiring exchange of thoughts and ideas. “The summit proved to be a great opportunity to meet a number of important decision makers from different countries. Furthermore, I received many interesting insights into the Digital Marketing and Consulting sector“, Sebastian summarized. “The summit was a great place to meet various managers in a very friendly atmosphere. For example, I had the chance of meeting Mr. Harald Behnke, Director of digital marketing strategies EMEA at Oracle.“

Further speakers were Detlef Gürtler, Chief Editor of the GDI magazine, Alexander Steinhart, founder of the app “offtime”, Google App of the year 2015, and Jörg Land, founder and managing director of Sonormed GmbH. This start up introduced the app „tinnitrack“, an award-winning medical app and the first app worldwide that is supported by medical insurances.
