MUSICIAN, TEAM COACH, SPEAKER, JAZZ PIANIST AND COMPOSER
The creation of sounds and photographs has much in common with entrepreneurial innovation. Daniel Ziegler talks about innovation topics from the perspective of a musician and photographer and has been working successfully for years with non-musicians on all aspects of creativity.
These experiences led to the format “Team In Takt” and later to “Sounds Like Innovation” together with Benno van Aerssen. The two coaches applied their joint workshop concept, for example, in a two-day seminar with a large German automobile company.
In workshops, he likes to use the stimulus picture method, among other things, to find ideas. In addition to the traditional (and very useful) stimulus picture method, he has further developed some related methods. For example the picture series on the topic “Development”.
Solo with his piano on stage, Ziegler talks about different aspects of innovation in his lecture “Composition – Improvisation – Innovation”. Using live music examples, he will talk about courage, risk, curiosity, idea generation and change management. In doing so, he always has the European entrepreneurial landscape in mind and reveals transfers of artistic creativity to business.
Daniel M. Ziegler has been a Fellow at the verrocchio Institute for many years due to his combined musical and innovation-methodical competence.
