Erfaring

Sideløbende med studierne byggede Hannah egen virksomhed op: Et innovativt designstudio WEARETHEFACES. I 2017 kom hun til Molamil som Project Management & Digital Strategy og blev senere forfremmet til Head of Innovation Unit & Digital Strategy. Det seneste halvandet år har Hannah været Digital Strategist & Head of Innovation hos Manyone.

Motivation

Hannah Gutkaufs blik for at spotte strategiske og innovative teknologier af- spejles ikke i hendes alder, og dét har sat hende i front for Manyones digitale innovationsenhed. Her falder Hannahs blik ofte på forretningspotentialer i nye kreative teknologier inden for fx VR og AR, hvilket har skabt synlige resultater i internationale højder og landet Hannah og kolleger priser på både nationalt og globalt plan. Hannah har haft en stor stemme i skabelsen af ”The Last Sta- tement” for Carlings, som nåede seks mio. mennesker og startede en diskus- sion om fremtidens modebranche, og hun kan samtidig bryste sig over priser og nomineringer ved bl.a. The Webby Awards, The Lovie Awards og Creative Circle. Hannahs sans for den strategiske integration af nye teknologier i designprocesser og digitale produkter lander hende på The M Talents 2021.

Hvad er dit bedste råd til branchens seniorprofiler?

To invest in diversity and the courage to let your team experiment, learn, and fail. I believe in diverse teams and going the extra mile to design solutions for a diverse audience. Also, I think that it takes courage to give people the trust and space to fail but that’s when extraordinary solutions are born.

Hvilke tre egenskaber karakteriserer dig bedst?

I am eternally curious, I don’t give up easily and I love to learn from people that are smarter than me. I am happiest if I can inspire companies and colleagues to think big and contextually. Also, I love emerging technologies, strategy, and budget negotiations, finding structure in chaotic or uncertain environments gets me excited.

Hvor henter du inspiration fra?

My amazingly smart colleagues and friends. As well as the internet with its countless rabbit holes behind and ahead of me. (From Harvard Business Review to the Future Tech Trends by Amy Webb and every technology podcast under the sun)
