The Mobility Revolution is Here. Now What?
A revolution in the way we move about our cities is already upon us. Electrification, self-driving cars, and shared business models make up the “Three Zeroes” of Mobility: Zero Emissions, Zero Accidents, and Zero Ownership. The speed of the transformation is like nothing we’ve seen before, and it encompasses more than “just” the automotive industry. Finance, transportation, energy, urban design and real estate are just some of the other industries impacted.
Whether your company moves people, goods, bricks, bytes, or money, it’s time to consider the strategic impact of this transformation. CEOs, corporate development professionals and fellow consultants are welcome to join this discussion on the wider impact of the mobility revolution on their own businesses.
As an author and keynote speaker with a unique focus on this topic, Lukas is uniquely positioned to challenge your status quo. His presentation will be packed with up-to-the-minute research on autonomous and shared mobility; he will also share the state-of-the art from the startup companies he advises.
Lukas is Managing Director at Neckermann Strategic Advisors, a consultancy with a focus on emerging new mobility trends and their strategic impact.
He began his automotive career in BMW’s Central Marketing department in Munich, where he co-developed the first BMW.com website, helped launch the innovative Z8 sports car, and – as an internal consultant – recommended pricing, marketing communication, and positioning strategies for BMW’s various brands (at the time BMW, MINI, Rover, Land Rover, and MG).
After attaining his MBA in New York, Lukas joined the Allianz Group in 2002. Over the span of 11 years, he held various strategic and line leadership functions, last as Commercial Director and member of the Executive Board at Euler Hermes UK plc, the UK’s leading credit-insurance company. There, he led the most significant innovation and strategic change program in 20 years of the company’s history.
Since 2013, Lukas has authored three books, “The Mobility Revolution”, “Corporate Mobility Breakthrough 2020” and “Smart Cities, Smart Mobility”. He is on the Advisory Board of three start-up companies: NEXT Future Mobility (autonomous shared transport), Flock (pay-per-flight drone insurance), and Splyt (a global ridehailing platform). Lukas is an Adjunct Instructor at New York University, and has lectured and taught courses to executives from over 40 countries. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Science and Technology Studies from Cornell University, and an MBA from New York University’s Stern School of Business.
