Hi there & welcome

This is thomasmaeder.com, a minimal website with a simple blog about Intranet, Digital Communication, Social Collaboration and Digital Workplace topics. I’ve started the blog back in 2012 and try to post at least every month. The posts are usually very short, and most of the time they just point to interesting content I’ve come across.

Every now and then, I speak at international conferences about the mentioned topics. You can find most of the presentations of these speeches on SlideShare. Let me know, in case you’re looking for a speaker.

If you happen to need a proven freelance consultant, experience designer and agile project manager to rethink your Intranet, Social Collaboration, Digital Workplace journey – don’t hesitate to contact me. Have a look at my services and expertise on rethink digital.

“We work in structures from yesterday, with methods from today, on problems for tomorrow. Mainly with people who have built yesterday’s structures, and won’t live to see the future within the organization.” Knut Bleicher
