Arndt's talk will be in English.

At the helm of one of the world’s leading responsible innovation consultancies, the Berlin-based phi360, Dr. Arndt Pechstein advises companies and organizations on adaptive leadership, resilient and learning networks, bio-inspired disruptive innovation, and a new digital mindset. His mission is shaping a just, sustainable, and desirable future for all humans and natural systems, while simultaneously conserving biodiversity.

Arndt has a specialist background in neuroscience and biomimicry (bio-inspired innovation), design thinking (user-centered innovation) and digital business models. He designs co-creative change strategies & programs to help organizations transition into a new mindset and organization logic. In order to impact on human behavior in organizations in a transformative and sustainable manner, he combines technical and analytical knowledge with human cognitive and intuitive behavior and creative approaches to create sustainable and scalable solutions in a complex and exponential world. This means focusing more on cyclical-systemic solutions rather than linear cause-and-effect.

In the spirit of his Credo: "Don't just be successful, be significant!", as a multi-award winning entrepreneur and founding director of the German think-tank for Biomimicry, his transformative work is applied across all sectors, ranging from automotive, banking, pharmaceutical, and energy to manufacturing, e-commerce and education.
