Part 1 of Baking the Perfect Virtual Cake!

A culinary exploration into the world of user-privileges and accessibility, and why you should use your tools wisely…and consciously.

To put it differently: The top 6 tools combination you need to run a perfect online workshop.

A few months into the virtual everyday that is now our professional and partly also private lives….and there is always 1 question when it comes to hosting an event, doing a workshop, designing a Meetup: What should we use?

By now, we have accounts basically everywhere and have run formats with different setups and requirements and goals. There is a lot to consider when…


Traditional HR departments focus on ensuring compliance and minimising liability for their firms, however, as the business world continues to evolve, there are new issues of importance — and plenty of exciting opportunities to help drive results. It’s clear that digital technologies have influenced people’s interactions, work, purchases and lifestyles, but this revolution has also elevated the value of people within a business.

Hi, Hello this is Julius from EX Lab in Berlin. We design meaningful working environments.

This past weeks we have been pretty busy coming from our Christmas holidays, back together in Berlin to prepare our first training in Employee Experience Design in this year. The first week was all about Onboarding our batch of participants.

Things were a little hectic before the end of the year, since we didn’t really plan our training and application phase with Christmas & holidays in mind. A huge learning for us: Don’t schedule events over the holidays. Never!

We had 94!!! registrations on Eventbrite…


Project heads will have to shift their function from a top down organizer to a on eye-level facilitator of purpose, work and learning.

Kicking off a project becomes more than a briefing of what you want to do and who does what and when. Gone are the days of hurried project managers rushing to conference rooms, carrying a laptop to add the last few point to the project roadmap.

We work in times, where we need to rely on a multitude of expert colleagues that have special domain knowledge or experiences. Challenges have become so complex that we cannot master them ourselves. Organising work, structuring knowledge will lose its importance because it will get messier. What counts is to make sense on the…
