Morgen geht es los... in Potsdam startet dieses Jahr wieder die #Convention der German Speaker Association (#GSA). Ich freue mich bereits sehr darauf. Dieses Mal sogar in meinem damaligen Wohnort, wo ich 2016 meine #Selbstständigkeit begann: in #Potsdam. Und mittlerweile lebe ich weit entfernt davon und habe sogar eine Firma gegründet. Damals hätte ich das niemandem geglaubt, wenn mir jemand diese Zukunft vorausgesagt hätte! 

Das Interview-Video, welches ich gestern im Post verlinkt hatte, wurde vor zwei Jahren bei der Convention in #Neuss gedreht.

In meinem bald erscheinenden Buch über meine Gründungsjahre erzähle ich auch viel über Potsdam. Daher möchte ich dich die nächsten Tage mit auf die Reise nehmen und dir über meine Erlebnisse in Potsdam berichten. Hast du Fragen zur Gründung allgemein oder spezifisch in meinem Fall? Dann schreibe sie hier gerne in den Kommentar!

With a passion for IT and communication:
Why I decided to work with nerds and geeks or how I became a GeekyAliki 😜

Exactly two years ago I held an interview here in Neuss with Uli Funke and his colleague Selina Hare about my work in the IT field and the communication between nerds and their environment.

The day after tomorrow I will be at the same event again, this time in Potsdam. And you may guess which event it is 😉.

As a communications enthusiast for IT companies, I have the opportunity to use my skills to help nerds and geeks unleash their communication talents. It's often a challenge to combine technical expertise with effective communication. My expertise is in helping IT professionals develop their interpersonal communication skills and improve their presentation skills, because being #introverted doesn't stop you from succeeding!

In my trainings, I focus on giving participants tools and techniques to explain complex technical concepts in an understandable and engaging way. After all, in a time when IT is playing an increasingly important role in businesses, it's crucial that IT experts are able to communicate their ideas and solutions clearly and persuasively so that ordinary people can understand them too 😉 .

I am convinced that everyone can improve their communication skills, regardless of their individual strength for technology. It's about building a bridge between technical expertise and the ability to share that expertise.

In doing so, concise and understandable communication is important to me. After all, the simpler and clearer we can express ourselves, the better we can communicate ideas and inspire others with our vision. In my trainings, I help participants to structure their communication, to get to the point, and at the same time to be lively and descriptive. And very important in teams are the emotions. Because geeks mean many purely factual, but it often comes across hurtful to the communication partner.

My great passion is to see IT professionals who are not only technically brilliant, but also able to communicate their thoughts and ideas effectively. My vision is that IT companies can benefit from these talents and take their teams to a new level of communication.

So if you know of a company that would like to make a targeted investment in the communication skills of its employees, I'd be happy to help. Let's change the world of IT together with convincing and precise communication!

HEC Paris - Yesterday I went to visit my grandfather's university. 
The buildings looked quite new, 70s. I soon learned that my grandfather had not studied here, but that the HEC used to be in the middle of Paris. The building where he had studied was this one. 
And funny enough, yesterday I met friends from Lyon who now live right next to our former shoe shop. You can still tell from the house number that it was where the clothes shop "Carlaraffi" is now.

I passed by #Dräger France SAS yesterday, but since it was a holiday, I decided to go there another time. My co-author Christian Dräger will certainly be pleased when I bring him photos from Paris back to Lübeck next week 😀 Right now, the podcast interview with entrepreneur Arthur Tiar from is waiting for me in #StudioF, the #HEC Founders Campus.
