In the following hours, there were exciting insights into the organisation's background, the market- and the financial world of Merkle, as well as a look into the living rooms of the participants. Not only thanks to digital flipcharts and online polls, but also because of the really relentlessly honest answers from the management, the participants were still concentrated and activated even after hours.
Even "random" encounters can be arranged remotely. After lunch, for example, the colleagues were invited for a remote coffee with one person each, whom they mostly did not know yet. A little relaxation before they were confronted with ethical principles and decisions that were not always easy to make in the afternoon in breakout sessions.
I was allowed to accompany the gang through the two days and was thrilled: Such events are - as eventful as they are - very exhausting. Sitting in front of the screen, however, it is a completely different challenge to stay focused and awake. But this was not noticeable to the interested people in any way - they asked questions, made jokes and sometimes even continued to chat during the breaks.
