Public speaking is one my personal passions. I have had the opportunity to learn from some of the best communicators out there through either training, coaching or simply by presenting right next to them. This is includes sharing the stage with people like Billy Beane (Moneyball), Robert Ballard (Explorer), Eddie the Eagle (Ski Jumper) and others. Here are a number of select videos from different campaigns and events.
OSIsoft UC London 2017
This was a straight forward event opener. The idea was to emphasize the tremendous opportunity around the Digital Transformation.
OSIsoft UC San Francisco 2017
This is one of my favorite openings. It took some creativity to come up with something that would inject the audience with energy before a long series of keynotes. The event started early in the morning and we wanted to make sure people were ‘awake’.
On Stage Interview with Eddie the Eagle
Shortly after the movie ‘Eddie the Eagle’ was released, we decided to engage Eddie as a motivational speaker for one of our conferences. I therefore had the pleasure of interviewing him for 45 minutes. It was a very fun and also inspiring experience. This guy has accomplished some amazing things. Highly recommend him as a speaker!
OSIsoft UC Berlin 2016
OSIsoft UC San Francisco 2016
This conference opening was fun! The room with over 2500 people was completely dark. Following the video and the intro we just had a spotlight on me while walking through the massive room.
OSIsoft UC 2014
Here is a short video from the OSIsoft UC 2014. I had the honor to MC the entire conference.
Finance Forum, Stockholm, 2011.
This is a keynote that I gave in May 2011. I presented to an audience of 300 finance professionals in Sweden. The presentation was titled: Innovative Solutions for Finance. And boy….this was a very serious audience. I like to have fun when presenting.
IBM IoD Conference, Las Vegas 2011
In late October of 2011, I had the unique opportunity to showcase some new software in front of 5000 people the IBM IoD conference. Together with my colleague Harriet Fryman, I acted as a typical business user who is struggling with his tools and of course with IT. Our challenge was to present a completely new tool and explain it in a fun and easy-to-understand manner. Forward the video to minute 55:30 – that’s where the demo starts.
The Harriett and Christoph story
The Cognos Insight demo and the video above turned out to be extremely popular within the IBM Business Analytics world. We received a ton of positive feedback (Thank you!). One of my colleagues therefore decided to develop a short and simple teaser campaign right before the official Cognos Insight launch in March 2012.
