Martin Bell – the “5-Premium-Speakers-Questions”

27. July 2018 – Patricia Zoller

Martin Bell is startup architect, investor, and global thought leader.

What are the core subjects of your keynote speeches?

Martin Bell:

• Startups
• “Intrapreneurship”
• Digital Transformation
• Innovation
• Startup Culture
• Digital Change Management
• Agile Working Methods
• Rapid Execution Strategy
• Mega-Trends of the Future
• Technologies & Business Models of the Future

Which audience or which branch do you reach with your speech?

Martin Bell:

My speeches provide corporates, SMEs, NGOs, investors, and even governments with actionable knowledge and tools to become innovative – and therefore stay competitive – in today’s digitized world. My keynotes are applicable to any organization – be it large or small, B2B or B2C, and in any industry. Thus, the relevance of my talks is universal.

Why are you a Premium Speaker? Where do you get your insights from?

Martin Bell:

During my career so far, I helped build over 50 companies and advised 30 more on major strategic decisions. This vast pool of experience of having dealt with over 80 companies provides me with the necessary experience to discern which steps are taken by those ventures that succeed and which steps are skipped by those who don’t. For my audience, I then distill that complexity down to its essence in an entertaining format.

What will be in the future? Does 'time' play an important role in your work?

Martin Bell:

In my field, time is of the essence. It’s already no longer sufficient to merely react to disruptions in order to stay ahead of the game. Instead, corporations have to be proactive: they have to embrace – and implement! – the new paradigm that holds that innovation has become an imperative and that disruptions are opportunities. This change will not end anytime soon. It will bring great rewards to those who act on the challenges and sudden ruin to those who don’t.

What is your life motto? What would you like to give your listeners on the way?

Martin Bell:

“The Startup Playbook! – Innovation = 1% Idea + 99% Execution”
