    WordCamp Vienna 2020Speaker: Florian Schauer-Bieche

    April 18, 2020 — I will speak about how to identify content for good stories, how to make them up, how to create, tell and sell. Learn about Break the rules-methods, based on Edward de Bono and Design Thinking. Learn how to re-think your way of content creating and learn new ways to approach your content. I will also talk about the future of content, based on the research results in my book Der Content-Coach (published by Springer-Gabler).
    And as John Hall, CEO of US-marketing agency Influence & Co told me: “I’d rather have you not to do anything and save your money if you are just going to half-ass it. If you want to lead your industry in content and gain trust, you need to make the investment to get there.”

    WordCamp San Diego 2016Speaker: Mark Uraine

    June 6, 2016 — Design Thinking is an alternative approach to the problems we’re working to resolve. It focuses on empathy and asking the right questions (which is normally, “why?”) to explore new solutions that may not initially be so obvious. This talk will review the process of Design Thinking and how it applies to our life and to the problems we face regularly. It’s about putting the user first and producing results that fit the user’s desires, needs, and capabilities. This method is rooted in the discipline of human-centered design and promotes a holistic effort to accomplishing everyday tasks. Come learn why Design Thinking isn’t about designing by committee, but rather an integral part to solid results that are understandable, usable, and purposeful.
