The level of commitment and skill that was shared by some of the other speakers, as they spoke about their work, their creative, personal and economic struggles was just an inspiration. I met some creative titans.
Schedule for Berlin 2022
For me a schedule of an event is really important and I put quite some work into it and yesterday, when I brought my youngest daughter to bed – read a story for her, sind good night songs – and was back at the desk, I got myself a nice gin and tonic and sat down to work on the schedule. I moved topics around, tried to imagine the pace and way of how a speaker would speak, moved things around again and finally arrived at something that I liked around midnight.
I went away watched something on YouTube, got back to what I had as a draft for the Berlin 2022 Schedule schedule and had a second look. Still liked it. I went to bed, woke up, had breakfast, a lovely coffee and had a final look today. I still like it, got the OK from Alexandra, that she is going to open the show and from Janis, that he is going to close and here we go.
I am really looking forward to all this and to kick things off after 3-years of not being able to run this event in Berlin. I am kind of sad, that we still have tickets left since this is the first time ever in Berlin that we won't sell out. I am not sad because I want to make more money – even if I need to these days. I am sad that people will miss an opportunity to join us for this fantastic line-up and a hopefully great experience. But for those who have a ticket and are coming: we'll have a great time and I – and the team and speakers – will do my very best to make you feel welcome and have enjoyable and fantastic two days at beyond tellerrand.
