The first XING New Work Experience in Berlin was superb! Nearly 1,000 guests from science, the start-up scene, corporations and the New Work movement gathered to share ideas on the subject of the new approach to work. As the New Work Spaces partner, Design Offices got to convert the wonderful location at Westhafen into a place of encounter, exchange and networking with our working landscapes.
More than 80 speakers on a total of eight stages presented a fascinating programme on the wide-ranging diversity of the new world of work for a total of 40 hours. One of the many highlights was the talk given by New Work founder Professor Frithjof Bergmann, who received standing ovations. New Work pioneers Thomas Stattelberger and Prof. Carl Frey of Oxford University, Ralf Dümmel of the TV programme Die Höhle der Löwen, former St. Pauli manager Holger Stanislawski and international TED speaker und author Federico Pistono also inspired listeners and received lots of applause.
The winners of the New Work Award 2017 were also announced in the course of the day: this is a prize that goes to companies and personalities for particularly groundbreaking work methods. The crowning conclusion was the Business Punk After-Show Party, where hip-hop legend Michi Beck of Die Fantastischen Vier provided just the right vibes.
A truly inspiring New Work event – at a spectacular venue, with great speakers, fascinating guests and a superb atmosphere.
