Inspiring input


From and with Anja

Anja is a maverick, thought-provoking rethinker who calls for an understanding of education that fits the disruptive age. Her aim is to shake up people, organizations and also politics. She wants to show ways to prepare for the uncertain future of work – and how some others practice it.

A trademark of Anja’s impulses is that the presentations are not standardized, but very individually tailored to the needs of the inquirer. The range of questions formulated so far is very wide. Nevertheless, based on our research at FROLLEINFLOW, we do not answer with common banalities, as they are all too often formulated especially in the discourse on education. Rather, we think outside the box, which helps open up horizons.

Anja will entertain and motivate those in the audience who want to creatively meet the challenges of the future. Whether young or old, it is able to inspire across the generations. Afterwards, you will know who to count on for your Change in the future.

Possible topics

  • What cultural and technological developments are shaping the current state of the digital age?
  • How do other people deal constructively with these developments when they have already been caught by the first disruptive waves?
  • What policies can make a difference regionally and educationally?
  • What do subversive strategies look like when leaders sleep through change?
  • How can managers themselves create good framework conditions to motivate their team for the digital transformation?
  • How can regions use the digital transformation to transform themselves into an innovation cluster?
  • What can small and medium-sized companies do to position themselves attractively for new workers or young people?
  • What can modern scientists do to participate innovatively in shaping the future and to help train innovative minds qualitatively?
  • etc. etc.

The formats can be done in presence on site or online. We are flexible and can contribute with tips. We can also develop and execute diverse, combined formats that immediately groove participants in a contemporary, digital practice. So from the lecture lead directly into a working group or community of practice – or from the online lecture into a face-to-face workshop or whatever. Many things are conceivable here. Let’s be creative!

A little feedback?!

Thank you very much! (Your lecture was very good!) The suspense and your story were just very round and understandable (and clear) for each:n.

Thank you again for your short visit to XY city and your rousing plea for shaping digital transformation. I am sure that some things have stuck with the audience and I have already received praise from different sides for your presentation. Now we just have to move from (re)thinking to action!

Her contribution was very enriching and certainly made other participants open their horizons. In particular, I would like to personally thank you once again for your clear words to address change in a timely manner, and to be bold and innovative in doing so. Without your contributions, our discussion would certainly not have been so stimulating. I was very pleased with your frank words. It takes a clear stance to initiate discussions and engage in exchanges. Thanks for this!

Thanks again for your outstanding presentation. I listen to a lot of lectures. Yours was the best within the last 12 months at least. Thinking in narratives and not getting lost in the nitty gritty. I have to think my projects crosswise again as a result.

Dear Ms. Wagner, thank you for your contributions to the discussion, which were disruptive in the best sense. This is how we imagined it.

Thank you also to you for the great contribution to our event! We have received a lot of positive feedback so far and are sure that you have provided a lot of food for thought for everyone present.

As an introduction to the event, Anja C. Wagner from “FROLLEINFLOW – Institute for Creative Flaneurs” offered a stirring keynote on current developments in the world of education, which electrified the audience and encouraged them to do the same as the “education troublemaker” and discuss new ideas and approaches.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your really great presentation, which we enjoyed very much. You have really shaken up some members of the association with your theses. Let’s see what new ideas and association projects can be developed from this.

The world was somewhat ambivalent after your presentation – as expected. The part of the “willing” was of the opinion “that this has to be tackled now”. The part of the traditionalists, as well as the part who do not reflect their own daily work accordingly, was somewhat disturbed. I found your talk peppered with so much interesting news that I’m going to completely rethink some of my approaches for perspective.

It was nice to meet you yesterday and your participation really enriched the panel.

Hi Anja, was today at the educational beer in Lucerne. A great format with a good contribution from your side.

Thanks again for the great presentation – the presentation and good participation got everyone upbeat ; )

Otherwise, since yesterday, I can hardly imagine doing some of my projects without you or an equivalent with your skills. I really didn’t expect anything like this yesterday. Exciting!

Hello Dr. Wagner, I found your presentation very stimulating and the discussion refreshing. We otherwise very often circle around in our own world of school and education. That was wonderful!
