December 2006 was a really busy month. We finished the Second Life Project with Bild.T-Online, prepared a couple of customized trend studies and did some challenging strategy papers for Innovation & Trend-Management.
Furthermore I attended the “European Futurist Conference” in Luzern (Switzerland) and Loic’s “Le Web 3” in Paris (France). Both events where great and I met many friends and interesting people from around the world.
The Start of the new year 2007 was also very exciting. We just came back from a trip through switzerland. We had great meeting with potential clients in ZÃ¼rich, Geneva and Lausanne. Especially the meeting with the WEF in Geneva was interesting:
– We learned more about the project of the World Economic Forum in Second Life:
“For the first time, selected participants of the Annual Meeting will be interviewed in the 3D virtual world of Second Life. Second Life residents can submit their questions to Adam Reuters, Reutersâ€™ Second Life correspondent, who will conduct the interview in the Reuters auditorium in Second Life. Internet users can watch the interviews online at: http://secondlife.reuters.com.”
– And we got some background infos about the World Electronic Community (WELCOM) which will be introduced in Davos next week.
Code-named WELCOM, short for World Electronic Community, the system is designed to provide “a secure and private video communications linkage of global decision-makers” and contribute to “enhanced business-government cooperation and global crisis management,” said Hans-JÃ¶rg Schwab, the founder’s son and a member of the WEF executive board.
Furthermore we visited the IOC in Lausanne at the Maison du Sport.
As you know CScout has an office in Beijing and we are involved in the preparations for the Olympic Games in Beijing 2008.
CScout is working on creative ideas for Marketing, Events and Communication in Beijing and also supporting many Olympic Partners in Germany and on an international level via our office in New York.
So I think this will be a great and exciting new year 2007.
Let’s get it started 🙂
