In Detail

Andreas’ mission is to educate for digital equality. Today, he talks not only about Google, but uses a wider scope to understand the companies and behaviours that have become culturally, technologically and commercially drivers of change at all levels of society. He focuses his journalistic instincts on the good and the bad of the biggest power players in the digital world and considers what organisations can learn from them. He looks into new user demands, gathering of data, design and technology strategies. Andreas was a TEDx speaker in 2013 and again in 2015; the second time around picked up by, which gave his talk an audience of well over a million people. The talk has been translated into more than 30 languages and has made Andreas one of Europe's most sought-after futurists.


In his presentations Andreas analyses how the digital revolution affects people, business and public life and helps decision makers to understand the tech world from a human perspective.
