Robin Weninger, Co-Founder and Managing Director of the executive education company Global Institute of Leadership and Technology (GILT), is committed to assisting organisations in addressing the multifaceted challenges of the 21st century.
His series “Leadership In Times of Uncertainty” and his initiatives on “The Infinite Organisation” have positioned him as a sought-after speaker and educator in the domain of leadership and technology. Robin’s explorations into exponential technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Technologies, and Blockchain, has allowed him to share invaluable insights at many conferences, as well as offer immersive sessions and workshops that address the ever-changing business landscape. With over 200 lectures and workshops in 30 countries, Robin has presented the design principles of an infinite organisation to a diverse audience, including business magnates, senior executives, and governmental representatives. He has earned a reputation as a “LinkedIn Top Leadership Voice”.
In 2015, Robin was distinguished by the World Economic Forum as a “Global Shaper” and, two years later, was incorporated into the community of “European Digital Leaders”. That same year, he became the academic director for the premier accredited Master program in Blockchain Technology. His advisory roles span the dHealth Foundation, Zigurat Global Institute of Technology, and the Blockchain Founders Group, among others. From 2017 to 2020, Robin advised multiple projects under the European Commission’s Horizon2020 program and, in 2020, he joined the advisory board for a government hackathon initiated by Germany’s chancellor office. His contributions also extend to the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Expert Board. Previously he was the Managing Director of the German Tech Entrepreneurship Center (GTEC) in Berlin, where he now serves on its Expert Board. Robin also co-founded the Norway-based venture capital and advisory firm Njordis and is the academic director of the executive education program “Implications of exponential technologies” at the EBS University.
Robin’s dedication to education is evident in his faculty board roles at the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management, the University of Barcelona, and the EU Business School in Geneva. His launch of the Global Blockchain Initiative (GBI) in 2021 saw the roll-out of a blockchain certificate course, benefiting over 6,000 students across 137 countries.
His publications include essays on organisational education in “Philosophy@Work” by Unbound and a segment on business model development in the widely read “Digital Entrepreneurship” by Springer.
Robin is a graduate of the International School of Management and Regent’s University, and currently resides in Frankfurt, Germany.
