Speakerprofile: Gerriet Danz

“Innovation is oxygen for business!”

We are excited to announce that we were able to allure Gerriet Danz as Keynote Speaker for the 19th European Shopping Center Symposium. The expert for innovation and creativity will speak about ideas, visions and permanent reinvention.

Gerriet Danz has been one of the most recognized experts on innovation and creativity for over two decades. The lectures of this passionate lateral-thinker, multiple startup founder, and best-selling author (CAMPUS/Random House) are as inspiring and unusual as the mix of his experiences. He worked initially as creative director of the international advertising agency BBDO, supporting global players in the development of innovations. His second career led to television: Gerriet Danz developed new TV formats, and even moderated the knowledge game-show classic: JEOPARDY. Motivating, humorous, and practical, he describes in his appearances how companies can create the perfect innovation climate and overcome creativity barriers. “One of the best in his field!” writes Computer Week; “It’s hailing ideas…” says GQ. And Der Spiegel asked him, “…what really matters.” Gerriet Danz is a lecturer at the Steinbeis Hochschule Berlin, advises the European Patent Office in The Hague, among others, is a member of the German Speakers Association as well as of GSF Global Speakers Federation Toronto, and is a winner of the CONGA Award in the “Speakers & Coaches” category.
