Digital Innovation & Product Manager Daniel Cardelús

“Nadine is the most creative, pragmatic and sharp person I’ve ever met. I’m fed up with empty expressions like “ground ideas to the business plan” or reading cheap consultant skills talking about “making things happen“. But all those things are possible with Nadine’s help. She’s capable to drive into disruptive innovation to help large and complex companies to obtain tangible results, to get a feasible blueprint to start to transform their DNA. And she does it easy and straight to the point. No wasted times with Nadine. Their own adapted methodologies like “Lateral Shortcuts” makes possible the agility that any company is asking nowadays. And, above all, she’s a great person.”


UX and Industrial Design Director Hallgrim Sagen

“… Nadine’s Lateral Thinking Workshop is extremely useful. … You get so much done. … She is well organised and has good slides. … She comes through as very authentic and trustworthy. … I could truly recommend this course for anyone who wants to do more innovation or train their creative capacity.”


Global After Sales Director Dr. Ulrich Lutz

“Nadine Meisel recently worked with us, a senior management team, in a workshop setting to develop solutions for our specific but future orientated business topics. She intensively familiarized with our current business and future innovation needs. And thus drove the quality of our discussion to a refreshing level. Nadine’s Lateral Shortcuts approach allowed us to reframe several challenges we were facing. It was impressive how efficient and productive this workshop was from the first to the last minute. We rapidly came up with new ideas that can be applied in various areas of the company. And immediately made even more use of them by building upon them for intermediate results and beyond. The lateral thinking techniques Nadine applies are both inspiring and time efficient. Many of the results were even surprising to us. I thank Nadine for this exciting team experience and would be glad to work together with her again.” read more see PDF

“… It was good for us to get an outside perspective to challenge the way things get done internally. … Your thinking, process, interaction with the users and designs were well liked and appreciated. … It means we are basically ready to start building things, and probably it’s fastest and easiest for us to just take it and run. … Thank you for your hard work!”
