Karel J. Golta is my guest on Episode 95 of Inside Ideas with Marc Buckley. In the age of artificial intelligence, digitization and machine learning being human is often neglected. For Karel therefore it is crucial that innovations are not only human- centered but rather make mankind - in unity with the entire ecosystem – the decisive factor in development. That this is something only design can do - that is not to be argued with the entrepreneur and convinced business-romantic. 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 initiator of successful event formats, as a board member and adviser of different cluster organizations, as lecturer at the Steinbeis University in Berlin as well as columnist and author, but above all in his attitude as an entrepreneur, Karel provokes and inspires executives as well as young talents 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.
If there’s one thing Eva Keretic has mastered in the half-century of her life, it’s to embrace an experience and create a story. Whether it be in song, or speech, or trying to save the planet. There she was at her first meeting with politicians and managing directors, hoping to finance an innovative vertical farm facility run on 100% renewable energy, and they started off with the normal introduction round. Their lists were long and impressive. She was panicking how would she even begin explaining her right and imminent necessity to be there amongst them. She decided the best plan of action was to go with her true story. She did write, produce and perform 6 albums of original music. She believes in and follows her desires to express her life stories with music and share them with the world. While doing it all, she has been adding something insightful to the lives of others through her experiences, she sure has and continues to do so. Whether it was for the many or a chosen few, she turned her life’s lessons and heartaches into songs. All the work involved in being an artist-led her down other roads, which allowed her to write advertising songs for companies, to create her “team-building with songwriting” agency, and to write songs to help teach kids to learn English. As is the natural course of a “do-gooder songwriter”, charitable work was the next step, she found herself tackling bigger global issues, like world peace and climate change. She was fortunate enough to have been accepted to train as a Climate Leader with Al Gore (former Vice President and Oscar winner for “The Inconvenient Truth) and his Climate Reality Project, and what she remembers most from her climate training with Mr. Gore, was that he said, „take what you’ve learned from my experiences and my presentation and weave it into your own narrative“. It all came down to the fact that all her experiences led her to become an advocate for spreading climate awareness. So in the end, that’s what landed her a spot at the table in that room with VIP politicians and the like. When she did confess her truths, it turned out the others were more impressed with her coming from “off the beaten path” than anything else (and they became fans, who doesn’t love music). • Member Hamburg Chamber of Commerce Committee for innovation and research 2020-21 (Head of the Foodworks Initiative)  • Ambassador for the Farm/Food/Climate Challenge for Project Together 2020-21 (Open Social Innovation Hub Germany)  • TEDx speaker October 2020 (Kassel, Germany)  • Creative Director for the ALOHAS Eco-Center 2017-2019 (a fully sustainable food and beverage production facility)  • Climate Reality Leader with Al Gore 2017.
