Tobias is a teacher by accident, entrepreneur by passion and European by heart. He has an extensive record of accomplishment as marketer and entrepreneur in various industries ranging from beer and mobile apps to politics. In 2015, he decided to dedicate his career to helping companies find their way of coping with the impact of disruptive technologies on businesses. As he loves to share his passion, he started the SHIFTSCHOOL for Digital Transformation where he teaches future game changers the skills and mindset for a digitized world. Besides, he is a sought-after keynote and TEDx speaker on topics ranging from „transformative mindset“, „leadership in the 21st century“ and „digital transformation“ to „disruptive education“ at international events such as the World Youth Forum in Egypt, Bits & Pretzels in Munich and the NATO Strat Com Conference in Riga.

When Tobias is not trying to impact the future by educating change makers, he likes gardening with his youngest daughter Lotte or prepares exotic new dishes with her sisters Lilly and Lara. As an Ultimate Learner and critical observer of the world, you never see him without a book. It does not matter whether it is about innovation, agile organizational development or artificial intelligence. He is currently working on two book projects of his own – on “Finding a Better Purpose” and “Navigating through Uncertainty”. His latest project is the MINDSETMANTRAMACHINE – an international think thank that wants to design a new educational ideal for the third millennium.
