Innovations need to be human centered, and this is something only design can do - that is not to be argued with Karel J Golta. Unlike many other topics, the founder and managing director of three companies – INDEED Innovation, TOI - Tools of Innovators, and Simplexion – loves to discuss, to provoke and to put the finger into wounds which no one previously suspected that they exist.
As a speaker at international events, as co-initiator of successful conference formats like the "DRDS Conference", as a board member of "Life Science Nord", as lecturer at the Steinbeis University in Berlin as well as columnist and author, but above all in his attitude as an entrepreneur, Karel J. Golta provokes and inspires executives as well as students to new thoughts. It is important to him that design is perceived as creation of value and not as creation of objects. And even more so he wants to convey to his listeners and readers the idea that design plays an important role wherever you want to change something.
