Many freelancers, developers and other knowledge workers are now working remotely from their home, coworking spaces or even as digital nomads from around the world. But is it possible to manage a whole business from remote? What are best and worst practices in terms of processes, organization and tools? Max is an analyst and will share his market perspective, and we hear from Oliver about his practical daily life as remote CEO and why it works for him.

Our guests:

Oliver Schmidt and Sven Pieletzki are the visionary owners of The Grand luxury hotel in Ahrenshoop. As part of their vision, they have established a leadership structure without a director managing the day to day business. Instead, Oliver is setting the pace and impulses for the management team himself, expecting that each department head acts as leader and entrepreneur. As a result, The Grand‘s organization is a very flat, democratic unity, where each individual employee shares the same rights and duties.

In our meetup, Oliver will talk about his vision and describe best practices running his business on-site and remotely during his extensive travels and stays abroad with the right tools and techniques.

Max Hille is an analyst und mobile practice lead at Crisp, a research and consulting firm. Based on his market and industry research, Max will share business and employee views about the potential of digital remote work and enabling strategies. He will also talk about recent developments and potential of remote working and co-working as innovation drivers.


The event will take place in the new St. Oberholz in Zehdenicker Strasse 1, just five minutes away from Rosenthaler Platz. The meetup will be in english.
