How leadership can drive innovation - Dr. Frank Meyer Head of B2C Solutions & Innovation E.ON

"The most important factor how leadership can drive innovation is to give people the ability to take a risk. As a leader you can only turn your organization around by never taking things for obvious. By always questioning every single day why things have to be like they had been in the last 20 years. And ask: Can we do it differently. This is absolutely tough daily business."

Inspiring leadership to foster innovation - Jeff Burton Founder of E.A.

"A Leader has the capability to make people follow him natuarlly without having to be a boss. The great formular of leading people is you have to believe in what you´re doing. That´s the only way to be effective. You grow as a leader by listening carefully to people."

"The future of manufacturing will be basicly focussed on generative design. Generative design is when you create objects by computers and stop engeneering every little detail as a human."

Serendipity? Lin Kayser - Serial Entrepreneur

"Serendipity describes the lucky chance accidents that you didn´t plan but they actually changed your life. The most important turning points in life have to do with it. And you can put yourself into positions that make serendipity happen more often, be ready for it and then embrace it."
