Dajana Eder

Web3 Founder, Consultant & Speaker

I started my career as freelancer for community and brand building focused on Web2. The past 12 years I worked as consultant for international brands and companies creating inclusive communication strategies. As journalist I wrote articles for my blog and a variety of magazinges about automotive and livestyle topics. In 2019 I focused on personal branding for women and discriminated groups, founded feminis[t]hinking as systemic coach and wrote the book “broken mirror – a selfportrait”. When jumping in the Web3 rabbit hole in 2021, I realized a lack of diversity. “This space could be utopia – a wallet does not know gender – but it’s still a reflection of our IRL unsolved problems.” As a society, we have to take responsibility to bridge the gaps and create an equal representation.

Saskia Wachs

Senior Consultant Advanced Analytics and Digital Nomad

Saskia is an Advanced Analytics Consultant at INFOMOTION GmbH. She has already worked in various data science projects for different customers and supervises the internal Advanced Analytics trainee program. She follows the Digital Nomad approach of INFOMOTION as often as possible and has already worked during various coworkations from Italy, Spain or Holland. Recently she went to South Africa for a so called integrated sabbatical and had the chance to get to know the country and its people for 10 weeks and to escape the German winter. Why work at your desk at home when you can work in the warm with a view of the sea?

Hannes Boyksen

Head of Beach Offices

During his Management career, Hannes repeatedly had the chance to work abroad in international teams. Since today, this intercultural Work life – experiencing a country and its people much more authentic and intensive in working teams compared to a touristic trip – motivates Hannes to find and design new Digital Nomad opportunities for the employees of INFOMOTION (and himself). While the pandemic based changes in our daily business accelerated the freedom of choice of individual workplaces around the world anyhow, Hannes keeps his focus on enabling team-experiences at unusual work-places for an entire team – and not celebrating himself as a Digital Nomad Freelancer in Bali or Kho Pangan. From Beach Office Days at the German Coast via CoWorkation-Groups in Europe the most popular and unique Worklife-Model invented by Hannes at INFOMOTION is the Integrated Sabbatical in Namibia & South-Africa.
