Having more than 11 years of experience in tech – Jorg loves to share his insights on online strategy, marketing, branding but especially company culture.
We invited Jorg to speak at the IR Global annual conference in Berlin to an audience of 300 business leaders coming from over 70 countries about the importance of culture in the workplace. His presentation was concise, engaging and provided practical ‘take “aways’ . Feedback was universally positive and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jorg to anyone who requires leading authority on building culture.
