“The world is in need of Mathias. It is as simple as that.
The organizations and societies of the world need people like Mathias who are able to bridge the gap between either doing good or making profit. Who have the courage to stand out in a crowd and fight for their beliefs. And who have that positive and persistent mindset that makes even the most impossible idea fly.
You can call Mathias one of the pioneers of long needed new practice where CSR (Corporate Social Responsibilities) and (OSC) Old School Capitalism is transformed into CSV (Creating Shared Value). In other words, making more of value for everybody. Value in the broad sense of the word.
Mathias calls himself a creative misfit. But actually, he is not. He is just one of the few who dare to connect extremely divergent interests, work methods and competencies into one holistic approach to life, ideas and work. We who disconnected our creative side from our analytic side in an attempt to be more effective and productive are the misfits.
Let’s celebrate the Mathiases of the world. We need them.”
“Mathias is annoyingly intelligent. Ranging from sharp analyses of cubistic poets to advanced pivot tables makes Mathias an interesting collaborative partner in almost any process. He sees the goal but the road leading there is never straight…”
“As the co-founder of Sandbox I have met a lot of CEOs and other top-level leaders. They all want to make something happen and they are great at what they do, but it’s also easy to get too caught up inside the corporate machine. Mathias has an amazing ability to work as a combination of listening coach and a creative hyperdrive. He captures complex situations and tells them back to you as a simple story. There’s not a single one of the CEOs I’ve met that I wouldn’t recommend working with Mathias.”

“I like to think of myself as someone who dreams big, but as a decision maker I fall into the same traps as everyone else of getting bogged down into the day-to-day tasks and short-term metrics. I never took the time to consider the vision of what I want the world to look like as a result of my work. Formulating this vision was a more difficult task than I realized and forced me to confront some difficult choices. But now that you’ve helped paint that picture, I have more purpose and direction.”
“I have more purpose and direction”
“Mathias is incredibly bright, reflective and creative. He’s worked with my company on the brand messaging for our first venture, Rising Tide Car Wash, and I’m absolutely blown away by how well he’s pulled together the variety of different values we stand for under one compelling concept of “Potential Everywhere”. When I first started working with him I was very confused by how we could fully communicate what we’re trying to do under one unifying concept, but after a couple sessions it all started to come together into what I consider a fantastic brand platform. He’s the type of interdisciplinary thinker that can be valuable for any big picture project for any type of leader.”
This is convincing. How much will this cost me?
I’d still like to read some examples.
