    Smart Cities: How Tech Connects Citizens to Solutions
    We are in an era of urban evolution. As more people move to cities, technology is advancing at a rapid pace. These two movements collide and form the basis of “Smart Cities“ which are metropolitan areas that leverage connected technology and the Internet of Things to improve convenience, safety and communication for residents. McKinsey projects that Smart Cities will become a $400 billion market by 2020 with more than 50 billion connected devices worldwide linked to the Internet. This is an exciting time for startups to innovate while also working with corporate and government partners to truly affect day-to-day life for people in cities around the world. Join us for an overview and startup showcase. Following we will hear from the startups Floatility and Breeze, who are carrying Smart City solutions.
    Chelsea like to connect things – people, ideas, organizations – and aim to do this in a way that makes a difference. This is the origin of her interest in Smart Cities as a way to address some of the world’s largest challenges at the most local level. She is researching Smart Cities in the U.S. and China as a part of a 2016 Zhi-Xing China Eisenhower Fellowship, an incredible professional and leadership development program that brings 10 Fellows to China for four+ weeks each Fall. The Eisenhower Fellowships is an organization and network that inspires leaders around the world through its U.S. and International programs. Her research centers on best practices and lessons learned across both countries.

    Corporate Culture 2.0 – Time for an Upgrade?

    Innovation of the future is tucked away in employees’ minds. In order to draw upon these ideas and make them tangible, a corporate culture is needed where employees feel at ease and are willing to give their all. That’s because happy employees are more productive than unhappy ones and tend to stay with their employer for longer. A lot of startups already embrace such a corporate culture and have made it an integral part of their teamwork. Not only does this provide companies with a number of economic benefits, happy employees are the best form of advertising out there as they’re willing to promote the company they work for. This in turn makes them vital in the war for talent.

    Companies and startups alike are increasingly being forced to adapt to the needs and expectations of employees in order to ensure long-term success, while transparency is proving to be essential to fostering trust and ensuring successful teamwork.

    Expectations on corporate culture have grown over time, which in turn gives rise to some major questions:

    • Should companies organise their work differently in order to foster their corporate culture?
    • Will leadership be lived differently at companies in the future? And will transparency play an increasing role?
    • How can digitalisation play a part in ensuring that corporate culture is handled in an innovative, united and forward-looking way?
    • What can companies learn from start-ups? And how can they go about setting a good example?

    Panelists:

    Dr. Jörn Apel, Co-Founder TheDive

    Mareike Emde, Sales Tandem, Tandemploy

    Julian Vester, Chief of Sublime Operations

    Moderator: Marc-Sven Kopka, Vice-President Corporate Communications, XING AG

    What can you learn?

    • How to set the Team Vision and Goals
    • How to leverage on the unique personality and strengths of each team member
    • How to establish structured communication – catering for formal & informal, personal & professional aspects.
    • How to Establish a Team charter – the „contract“ between the team members for using and responding on the vital communication channels
    • How to inspire and maintain the Winning spirit and establish the optimal Virtual Culture!

    Peter Ivanov is Manager, Entrepreneur and Virtual teams Expert with over 20 years of international experience. Born in Bulgaria he graduated Mathematics and joined a multinational company as Data Analyst.
