My Podcast Guest today is Erik Wirsing, Vice President of Global Innovation at DB Schenker.

Erik is very passionate about the work he does and we had a fascinating conversation about Innovation. I learned a lot!

Together with his team, he is responsible for bringing new knowledge and ideas to many different areas of the business, as well as fostering a culture of innovation in the organisation.

We talked about passion, curiosity and diversity as drivers and innovation boosters. But also about how to keep the eyes open on what´s going on out there, and to stay up to date even after so many years in the same company.

He shares generously insights into how the company managed to navigate the business through the pandemic with even one of the best results of the last years. And how the home office situation brought him and his team even closer together, very human and touching.

Erik also shares his personal journey through his career and how he overcame stage nervousness.

I hope you enjoy this very inspiring exchange as much as I did!
