Hi! I’m Désirée.
Hi! I’m Désirée.
With Innovationlead, my goal is to help individuals and teams learn and work better in the future of work.
Back in 2006, I began to fundamentally change the way I work. Now, more than a decade later, the future of work is my daily business. I love to create trainings and retreats on innovation and the future of work linked to stunning environments all over the world.
My career path has always been linked to innovation and learning. I have a master’s degree in Business/HR Education, Psychology and Intercultural Communication. My PhD focused on a cognitive approach to innovation and learning. I showed a learning process for innovation, and how this can be used towards entrepreneurship.
Since 2006 I worked on different projects about professional education & training, entrepreneurship and innovation, mostly for University of Zurich where I am now Head of Science Lab. I also have been CEO of the Swiss association for professional education & training, where I also was responsible for organizing and leading expert retreats.
Always wanting to help others reach their potential, I continuously have side projects, like cofounding the startup platform Startup@UZH, leading the Sustainability Committee at the University of Zurich and cofounding and leading Social Innovation Summit.
Personally, when not making magic at my desk, I love physical activities such as walking, hiking, swimming, standup paddling, acrobatics/dance, and yoga. I also love to continue learning through books and I am really into electronic music. When traveling, my camera rarely leaves my side.
