FLIPPED
 

CONFERENCE 

That's how we do it.

There is one thing we dont like about Tours: they sound like business Tourism. Zoo visits. Busses full of people are thrown at the facebooks, Apples, Googles and what not. 

You might network with 43 other buddies in the bus, but do you really take home a lot from walking through a corporate campus?

We believe not. Thats why we are doing our tours in flipped conference fashion: Meet exciting people, gamechangers, have one-on-one conversations with them. Go into your specific space and explore possibilities, related to your own personal and professional development.

To ensure this is really happening, we keep our tours small to max 10 participants.

How we do it? Easy: we listen to our participants and help them understand what all these impression can mean for them and how the Lifestyle and Mindset of the Silicon Valley can be translated into each individual life.

NIKI ERNST

Co-Founder, Curator, Host

I'm an impact driven person. I like good and fast answers to solve a problem, learn, listen, pivot, move on. In a nomads like life, I commute between Vienna and San Francisco and the rest of the world where I help the best speakers in the world shaping their public speaking skills. You can talk with me about everything but boredom, this is a feeling I cannot recall. I am father of three amazing young humans and live with the most adorable woman on earth. Looking forward to meeting you!

MARIO HERGER

Mentor, retired Co-Founder

Silicon Valley has been my home for 15 years, not only as place to live but a mindset to aspire to. Whenever I return to Europe
I notice the many little things that made my home continent great, but also prevent itself from reaching the next level.  
As someone who has undergone the transformation from skeptical know-better to a more optimistic and curious Foresight Thinker, I am happy to introduce you to different options you might take. Are you ready for this? Might be challenging,  but usually its always big fun!

IVAN STAMENKOVIC

Program Coordination

I've always been trying to interact with a lot
of people, as exposure and interaction is a surefire way to learn and grow.

And throughout this experience, I've noticed one thing: everyone has ideas. But what's often missing for the ideas to grow and reach their full potential is the right tools. A mediocre idea with great execution beats a great idea with mediocre execution any time. So, my aim is to help you get the right tools for your idea to reach its full potential. 
Looking forward to enabling you to succeed!

Fraulein Social

I sense that people have totally lost
their "Gspür" for setting priorities. Nervously rushing around like rabbits chasing the carrot. Psyched about all the good new things without considering to be real good at what they can and be, already.

I'm a Viennese Santa Monican,
or a Santa Monican Viennese hence I know a lot about the sense - the "Gspür"
for pacing and synchronizing excitement with depth and the important things.

Bridging worlds and cultures is what
makes life so exciting.
Hi there, I am Fraulein Social.

FLORIAN BRODY

Outpost Go-To

Solve et Coagula - Coagulate and dissolve – bringing the most unlikely elements together and taking the unexpected apart – the motto of the Alchemists has always been my guide. Linguistics, the Austrian National Library and the French Film Archive, CD-ROM and Multimedia, AI and Ars Memorativa. Electronic Books in Santa Monica, and multiple Startups in the Silicon Valley. Mentoring, Life and Leadership Coaching around the world. Practicing Zen and sailing and raising my daughter. Amazing the insights you gain when comparing old and new. And it helps when you’ve seen a few things over the years.

MARIA BÖY

A multicultural background helped me to engage into business connections that inspired executives willing to cross the gap. During the journey I watched my communication mentoring skills
changing careers. At a certain point
 I understood I was in the business
of changing lives and consequently

peoples' future. Just like boundaries, borders are outdated concept to me. While I appreciate roots (Brazil), I embrace the concept of being earthling. This planet is my home and its cultures are my fuel.  Happy to be part of your journey.
