My name is Carolin Desirée Töpfer. I am a 28 year-old founder and digital transformation expert from Berlin. Since my teenage days, I was always fascinated by data structures and robotics. As the founder of a music community for local bands, I also learned a lot about web design. But then I decided, that I want to become a journalist and studied Political Science in Munich. However, at every single job I had ever since, I was the girl responsible for everything that had to do with IT hardware, software and data.
Working at different international companies within the last 5 years before I started my consulting business in 2016, I recognized how complicated tech topics look like for the most people. I saw a lot of conflicts between employees of different generations – just because of different digital skills. So I took this experiences and made it a business model.
Today, I am a consultant and sparring partner for managers of small and medium sized companies. I help them to push their digital knowledge to a higher level, offering face to face coachings as well as workshops for small groups. And if there is a helping hand needed to implement the sustainable digital strategy we created together, I support my clients as reliable IT service provider.
In March 2016, I started the German blog Digitalisierung jetzt! to write about the challenges of digital transformation and the impact it has on our worklife and global society. Digital Strategy now! is the English sister blog. I hope you like it and I am looking forward to reading your feedback, as comment under the blog posts or on the Facebook page.
