Why Every Business Is People Business

The Importance of Listening, Being Present, Intuition, Passion, Trust and Relationships

For the latest episode of the Sparkr Podcast I initially set out to learn more about the art of asking the right questions - a powerful skill in today's world of abundant information and noise.

For that I met with successful and thoughtful investor Florian Schweitzer who started young as an entrepreneur and along the way founded 'b-to-v' – one of Europe's largest and oldest venture capital firms today.

As our conversation evolved, we not only talked about asking the right questions but also about the importance of being present, seeing behind the curtain of people’s motivations as well as the power of intuition, trust, relationships and passion.

I wish you an inspired and successful week.

Silicon Valley Magic for SME

As I travelled Silicon Valley and met with a lot of entrepreneurs, innovators and thought leaders, I always had the question in mind, what Swiss organizations and entrepreneurs can learn from the Californian ecosystem.

Recently, I was able to share some of my observations and thoughts in an interview with the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs. Their SME newsletter goes out to thousands of Swiss companies and entrepreneurs.

My personal goal was to identify easy-to-implement and buzzword-free tactics that every organization can use - without the need for significant financial resources.
(This interview is available in German, French and Italian. English speaking readers can have a look at my Sparkr Blog where I summarized my findings in English.)
