A Project for the UNESCO, Dedicated to Lifelong Learning
Stefanie Mager Brand Consulting works for industrial clients and the academia. Why we combine? Because we think that it is through an appetite for both, business challenges and fresh, application-oriented knowhow that we – and new talent successfully deliver in today’s VUCA world. Briefly speaking, we consider lifelong learning as a fundamental source of our – and thereby our clients’ sustainable success. Through a fortunate event, our viewpoint on the matter “lifelong learning” expanded: We were chosen to join a project for the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL), one of the eight educational institutes of UNESCO Worldwide and part of the United Nations (UN), which represents the UN's fundamental positions on the topic. Teaching an international masterclass at the Brand University of Applied Sciences, my colleague Michael Kress, my assistant brand manager Jasmin Bei and myself reflected on UNESCO's global priorities – and, on this basis, developed concepts for the UIL’s public relations as well as their social media activities with the students. Our partner Katja Römer, Communications Officer at UIL, commented, "I was impressed by the students' detailed analysis of our work and the ideas they built on." We thank Ms. Römer and the UIL for a meaningful exchange and good collaboration on lifelong learning.Read more
Enabler of Decarbonisation and Stefanie Mager Brand Consulting Collaborate
The WAGO Group is one of the internationally leading suppliers of connection and automation technology as well as interface electronics. In the field of spring clamp technology, the family-run company is the world market leader. In 1951, the business started with something seemingly inconspicuous: the spring clamp. But what a difference it makes! Do you know the effort it takes to screw cables to the new ceiling light overhead via a luster terminal? Can you imagine the relief an electrician gets from a secure clamp that works like this 100 times a day: Pull the lever up, insert the conductor, push the lever back down - done? Practical WAGO solutions have since become industry standards time and time again: controlling an entire building electronically requires many connections, so distribution boxes were developed. These are to be supplied electrically: the control cabinet was added. But where is the connection to decarbonisation? Ultimately, it's about electricity. Electricity is difficult to store. So power plants produce it - e.g. for entire cities - in excess of demand, possibly consuming resources unnecessarily in order to cover it in every case. What if the exact demand could be determined from the control cabinet via digitalisation/controller, so that cities and industry could save CO₂ and protect the environment? This is exactly what WAGO makes possible: 8,500 employees ensure safety and efficiency at the highest quality level in the manufacturing industry, marine and offshore, building technology, energy technology, the automotive industry, lighting technology, railway technology and in the process industry. We are proud to have contributed to the purpose and success of one of the fastest growing medium-sized companies in Germany: As part of a team working in partnership, we systematically charged the brand story/brand narrative with core messages of the company, enabling even more effective communication towards customers and employees.Read more
Performing an International Brand Innovation Assessment Center on the Line
Not new: Creating and performing a brand innovation AC with a focus on entrepreneurship and marketing. Moderating versatile professions gathering to work on an all new topic and case, this time: Business economists, computer scientists, a literary professional, a geologist, marketers, a logistician, industrial designers and a psychologist. For the third time, but still new: We were meeting only online from Albania, Bosnia, China, Colombia, France, Germany, India, Iran, Kosovo, Malaysia, Nigeria, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Turkey and the Ukraine. We introduced and used a shared workspace my colleague David Dumont had created with Zoom, Google Docs, Drive and Hangouts… plus aimed to create a personal atmosphere. It was astounding how much everyone learned from each other in two days. Ngozichukwu Mbakamma from Nigeria said: “Amazing. I was glad to be a part!” The AC demanded a high and persevering degree of mindfulness, but Corona, you could not tame those teams’ success!Read more
