Hi, I am Niklaus Gerber

I assist companies with transformational leadership, change management, digital innovation and user-centred design. I guide teams, shape products, refine strategies and make things simpler, smarter and more helpful.

I work with amazing people at Vorwerk, where I serve as their head of user experience. Previously, I lead the digital product development for Neue Züricher Zeitung. I am a Hyper Island alumni and the author and creator of TeamKit.
