Germany aims to reopen borders - what you need to know
"We're going to head across the board or to Germany now a border which opens officially on Monday the country has been praised for its handling of covid nineteen, but Deutschland Inc is immune from the impact of the virus is having on the global economy. So how can major corporations be supported by the government in Berlin I'm joined on the line from points dot in southwestern Germany by Anna Rosenberg irregular, and is the head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy cigdem global. Couldn't talk. Couldn't tack. Very good here for humanity. Oh, no is a great to have you on the program. Literally probably for the last what five or six weeks we've seen one German company after other, and these were really talking about global names that all of our our listeners will will be well aware of companies that touch people's lives Some have seemed to be sailing through this reasonably well, but we've seen of course many others and probably most the most. High. Profile instances is tons of which has been. In the news almost every day for the last two weeks on on business pages around the world, and with a lot of focus right now on major job layoffs that will probably see before their AGM it in the coming weeks. I'm very keen to hear how the story is playing out domestically, though because I think outside of Germany Anna everyone of course is seeing a similar type of story, the relating to how daylights bailouts might occur in Australia or Canada or elsewhere, but I. If we look at the front pages, if we look at what's being, said on the tag, a show how I would say sort of what is the mood and the reception nationally right now? I would say that, of course luther tons is a concern, but it's not the biggest concern I think that the German government has over the past few weeks, a lot of the things right and of course at the moment top of mind for everyone is the recently announced fiscal stimulus package, which is another one hundred thirty billion euros, and to support Jimmy consumers and business, and that's I would say currently preoccupying people's minds business all relief by the measures announced and I think that's overtaken the bad news from Lufthansa. Also you have to keep in mind that. Lufthansa was bailed out. Even though they are still of course, suffering, huge job losses, overall, there are some positive signs, and I would say that. Combined with the opening up of the economy, those all being well received. We've seen a consumer sentiment reports out of Germany as well, and and certainly there was a feeling a little bit early on that. Maybe people's fears were a little bit misplaced still fearful but if you look at the mood now, and whether that is just your read, for from where you're sitting, at of course how your consultant he looks at it. As much is of course what might be popping? Popping up in the pages of Honda's Blot you look at a stimulus right now. There's going to be cash handouts for families and a lot of money for every child. Does this raise the mood? And of course whatever economy looks at is consumer sentiment in terms of getting out onto the High Street shopping filling up grocery baskets. All of those things. Where where would you say the consumer mindset is right now? I think the consumer mindset is cautiously optimistic. Very cautious because I think that, it's not yet quite clear how this crisis will ultimately pan out. There's a realization that Germany is a relative. Winner or let's say not too bad loser from Kobe than other countries it's has. Done more than others in terms of trying to contain the disease, the government has stepped up significant economic measures as I mentioned before so those things at Kohl's obviously provide cause for optimism, and I think the the the money that the government will be handing out for child support another three hundred euros, plus lowering the VAT. All of that will stimulate consumer spending but I think it's too early. You're not going to see suddenly. Suddenly consumers go out and shop like crazy. Ultimately, these still cautious Jim and consumers that going to want to continue to monitor how plays out and I think once there is confidence that things won't get much worse. That's when you're going to see consumers. Step up spending I do expect this to happen over the next few weeks and months, and especially over the summer, because that's also when you just have a pickup optimism generally. Do! You think there's also maybe a patriotism wave, and that's a it's a tricky word in in Germany or at least in some corners at wet, better patriotism when it comes to a head Shelton, Deutsche signed a made a made in Germany feeling. Of course you can go to lots of grocery stores. Local markets and people want to of course singing, the praises of the of the Chicago this Baragan that's grown around the. The Corner, etc, but does that also extend you think elsewhere in in in consumer spending that people are are going to be thinking about jobs in Germany. It might be a little bit more expensive for me to buy that product, but it is made in Germany I. See that it is going to help the state that I live in or the state next door or is going to be driven by WHO's got the best price. It depends on your income. I would say I think that consumers that have a little bit of leeway will make those conscious decisions. They will buy local whenever possible I think. That's a trend that was here before. Kobe ticket buying local, being more environmentally conscious, making sure that your products don't have a very large carbon footprint that was here before and I would expect that consumers that are wealthy enough to afford to make these choices will continue to make these choices, but of course those that are going to be squeezed. They will not be able to. They're going to go for the cheapest option, and there will be quite a few of those as well so I. Think it'll be a mixed mixed back really and just before we go. We just maybe shining a spotlight on Berlin and certainly foreign policy a you and I have touched on. Whether the dock countries Germany Austria Switzerland are are looking to maybe come together a little bit and and show that there is there leadership even though these countries are also very disjointed in many ways, but is there a sense that you Berlin you now? I mean really also being recognized almost daily around. The world is having done a very good job, Switzerland and Austria as well that they. They start to convene big MESSA again. Of course, when when public health obviously issues and public health guidelines allow, because it certainly seems on many other levels Germany is trying to push ahead, but does it see itself as also being a commercial convener sooner rather than later because we've seen so many are still being so I mean I wouldn't say pessimistic, but maybe some would argue in business overly cautious. I think there's a big. Division in terms of the states in Germany about this topic. I would imagine that if you now see. Infection rates stay low over the summer which we expect we, we do think this going to potentially be another wave in the autumn, but if things go more or less smoothly over the summer, it's going to be difficult to continue to extend lockdown measures, and instead people will cool for more openings and eventually also call for mass gatherings, and I think that's what you can see things like larger messy mess, being organized again and large public offerings coming together, but I think we'll still a bit way from this, and I don't expect it necessarily to accelerate in this first half and second half of the year really. On Rosenberg from CIGDEM global in Germany very good to speak.

And And I I believe believe you you started started your your career career working working on on the the manufacturing manufacturing floor floor at at General General Motors. Motors. But But soon soon found found yourself yourself leading leading Detroit Detroit for for new new opportunities opportunities overseas overseas and and in in Silicon Silicon Valley. Valley. So So can can you you expand expand on on that? that? Tell Tell me me about about the the transition transition from from the the manufacturing manufacturing for for for for new new opportunities opportunities older older season season in in Silicon Silicon Valley. Valley. Sure. Sure. Sure. Sure. So So I I worked worked at at General General Motors Motors between between junior junior and and senior senior year year of of college college to to make make some some money money for for college college snow snow university university in in the the US US is is quite quite expensive. expensive. And And I I was was supposed supposed to to be be programming. programming. Robots Robots at at General General Motors. Motors. Will Will it it turned turned out out the the robots robots were were delayed delayed from from Japan? Japan? And And so so the the plant plant manager. manager. L L Harris Harris came came out out to to us us twenty twenty eight eight college college students students who who are are supposed supposed to to be be doing doing programming programming and and said said men, men, I've I've got got good good news news and and bad bad news news bad bad news, news, robots robots won't won't be be here here for for another another nine nine months. months. Good Good news news is is you you can can work work on on the the manufacturing manufacturing floor floor as as production production supervisor. supervisor. And And learn learn manufacturing manufacturing is is all all about, about, and and we we we we were were like like deer deer in in the the headlights. headlights. I I really really needed needed the the job job slide slide state state about about half half the the people people left left and and took took their their backup backup jobs, jobs, and and I I had had to to manage manage you you cranky cranky twenty twenty to to thirty thirty year year veterans veterans of of the the United United Auto Auto Workers Workers union. union. And And as as there there is is a a nineteen nineteen year year old old with with you you knowing knowing very very little little about about management, management, and and I I tell tell you you they they just just rip rip me me apart apart for for the the first first few few weeks weeks until until I I finally finally earned earned the the respect respect in in delta delta relationship relationship with with them. them. But But it it was was probably probably one one of of the the toughest toughest things things I I ever ever did did was was managing, managing, you you know, know, people people older older than than me me different different races races different different backgrounds, backgrounds, and and it it really really took took a a lot lot of of humble humble pie pie to to be be able able to to do do that that job. job. But But I I still still love love technology technology and. and. For For me me getting getting out out to to Silicon Silicon Valley Valley was was goal goal at at least least getting getting out out to to the the west west coast. coast. And And I I took took a a job job with with a a startup startup chip chip company company as as a a chip chip designer designer and and moved moved out out to to southern southern California. California. And And that's that's how how I I started started my my technology technology career. career. Incredible Incredible journey journey you you all all to to the the CEO CEO of of Campbell Campbell based based company company called called Mojo, Mojo, which which is is a a leading leading SAS SAS platform platform for for connected connected cars cars and and carry carry a a brand brand new new IOT IOT services. services. But But Mojo Mojo is is also also you'll you'll six six outing outing the the CEO CEO I've I've got got to to ask ask where where did did your your passion passion for for using using technology technology to to solve solve real real world world problems? problems? Where Where did did that that come come from? from? It's It's interesting. interesting. I I was was looking looking back back and and turn turn it it throughout throughout your your we're we're we're we're the the roots. roots. My My dad dad was was electric. electric. So So he he always always had had switches switches and and light light bulbs bulbs and and circuits circuits we we built built radio radio shack shack electronics electronics kits kits together. together. He He actually actually built built a a TV TV from from a a heath heath kit kit project. project. Can't Can't we we actually actually take take all all the the components components and and build build your your own own TV TV in in so so tinkering tinkering with with electron electron at at early early age age really really helped helped with with that. that. And And I I look look back back and and now now that that radio radio seconds seconds defunct defunct and and all all the the stores stores are are shut shut down. down. You You know, know, I'm I'm hoping hoping somebody somebody resurrects resurrects those those kits kits because because as as a a young young kid kid playing playing with with those those cats, cats, you you know, know, really? really? Really Really taught taught you you the the basics basics of of how how hell hell electrcity electrcity flows. flows. Have Have switches switches work work relays, relays, transistors, transistors, building building your your first first transistor transistor radio radio component component by by component. component. Those Those are are things things that that kids. kids. Now, Now, just just take take for for granted granted everything everything just just works. works. Are Are you you don't don't need need to to know know how how it it works? works? I I think think understanding understanding understanding understanding how how things things work work is is a a key key part part of of building building out out love love and and curiosity curiosity around around technology technology for for people people hearing hearing about about Mojo Mojo for for the the very very first first time. time. Could Could you you just just set set the the scene scene ill ill failed? failed? Exactly Exactly what what as as the the real real world world problems problems that that you you solve solve what what makes makes stop stop out out of of solutions solutions outlet. outlet. Sure. Sure. So So some some OJ OJ we're we're in in Vancouver Vancouver based based company company with with offices offices in in Silicon Silicon Valley. Valley. Also Also Sofia Sofia Bulgaria, Bulgaria, we're we're quite quite global. global. We We build build a a cloud cloud platform platform for for IOT IOT starting starting with with the the connected connected car. car. And And what what that that means means is is we we for for just just ten ten dollars dollars or or ten ten year year olds olds per per month month of of mobile mobile operator operator provides provides a a device device that that the. the. Sumer Sumer plugs plugs into into the the vehicle vehicle into into their their on-board on-board diagnostic diagnostic court, court, which which every every car car since since nineteen nineteen ninety ninety seven seven has has in in by by plugging plugging that that device device in in you. you. Light Light up up for for G. G. Lt Lt me me WI WI wifi wifi in in the the car car see see of of high-speed high-speed wifi wifi in in the the car car that that works works anytime. anytime. The The car car is is on on you you also also decode decode all all the the secret secret information information hiding hiding behind behind that that on-board-diagnostics on-board-diagnostics port, port, for for example, trouble codes when you check engine light goes on. And you have no idea what the problem is. We'll tell you not only the severity of the problem. But what the problem is the likely cost of repair. So when you go into a mechanic shop you as a consumer have much more power than just driving in and saying, please help I have no idea. What's wrong with my vehicle? Now, you can drive in and say this catalytic converters failing it should cost about six hundred pounds. Can you do it for six hundred pounds or less? So So just just those those two two features features not not only only give give the the customer customer more more convenience. convenience. But But also also save save them them time time say say that that money. money. It It also also lets lets you you know, know, if if your your car car has has been been tampered tampered with with has has been been bumped bumped toters toters being being stolen, stolen, and and you you know, know, that that your your loved loved one. one. Ones. Ones. Are Are also also getting getting into into a a safe safe vehicle vehicle for for me me I've I've got got teen teen daughters. daughters. So So knowing knowing that that they're they're driving driving safely safely knowing knowing where where they they are. are. And And the the cars cars are are safe safe is is also also great great peace peace of of mind mind for for me me as as a a parent parent and and with with that that we've we've gone gone from from zero zero to to eight eight hundred hundred thousand thousand connected connected car car last last eighteen eighteen months, months, and and we'll we'll put put you you off off Moderato. Moderato. If If you you let let you you close close twenty twenty eighteen eighteen on on an an incredibly incredibly high high note, note, we've we've moved moved T T mobile mobile Poland Poland as as long long as as the the small small cost cost pilot pilot by by Mojo, Mojo, which which takes takes you you to to nine nine operators operators in in six six countries. countries. But But could could you you expand expand on on these these and and how how incredible incredible journey journey which which seems seems to to be be gathering gathering spate? spate? Now, Now, doesn't doesn't it? it? Yes. Yes. Thank Thank you. you. It's It's it it really really is is celebrating celebrating Deutsche Deutsche Telekom, Telekom, which which is is majority majority owner owner of of T T mobile mobile also also t t mobile mobile Poland Poland t t mobile mobile Germany Germany Austria Austria Czech Czech Republic.

They They have have a a partner partner in in group group with with a a couple couple of of key key people people Ota Ota Chesney Chesney Gabby Gabby that that actively actively work work as as hard hard trying trying to to help help the the startup startup that that the the that that the the big big corporate corporate has has invested invested in in as as they they do do making making sure sure the the corporate corporate gets gets there there initiatives initiatives completed completed so so that that group group has has been been really really helpful helpful in in helping helping us us to to find find the the product product test test the the product product make make sure sure it's it's carrier carrier grade grade also also making making sure sure were were fully fully compliant compliant with with GDP GDP are are the the new new regulations regulations in in Europe, Europe, and and then then helping helping us us work work through through each each of of the the different different countries countries which which still still are are allowed allowed to to make make their their own own individual individual decisions. decisions. So So that that investment investment from from Richard Richard telecom, telecom, and and the the partnering partnering group group in in working working closely closely with with them them have have been been really really instrumental, instrumental, and and we we are are super super happy happy to to have have our our most most recent recent launch launch in. in. Poland. Poland. And And you you know, know, it's it's a a large large market. market. Don't Don't you? you? Tell Tell the the town town has has number number one one market market share share there. there. And And they're they're really really excited excited about about being being used used this this technology technology to to make make their their car car safer, safer, put put WI WI fi fi in in it it and and helped helped her her consumers. consumers. Save Save time. time. Save Save money money and and going going forward forward we we expected expected eventually eventually being being most most of of the the torch torch telecom telecom countries countries around around the the world world as as long long as as they they have have enough enough cars cars in in enough enough people people not not many many people people listening listening to to us us today. today. We'll We'll be be gently gently easing easing this this selves selves back back into into the the office office after after a a year. year.

I I believe believe you you also also do do guest guest lectures lectures at at stunt stunt fits fits engineering engineering entrepeneurship entrepeneurship program. program. Can Can you you tell tell me me a a little little bit bit more more about about that that program? program? And And why why you you think think so so important, important, absolutely. absolutely. Why Why looking looking back back to to the the first first company company I I started started I I wrote wrote my my business business plan plan in in that that class class and and the the class class is is a a combination combination of of engineering engineering master's master's students students and and business business schoolmaster schoolmaster students students in in the the Inkatha Inkatha that that class class is is a a business business plan plan that that you you present present to to both both the the professor professor Mike Mike lions lions and and also also the the students students and and eventually eventually to to venture venture capitalists. capitalists. Why Why wrote wrote might might first first business business plan plan in in class class in in actually actually starting starting my my first first company company I I go, go, which which I've I've actually actually took took public public ninety ninety nine. nine. And And so so that that class. class. Nice Nice has has a a real real special special place place in in my my heart. heart. You You know, know, healthy healthy launch launch my my first first business business in in so so Mike Mike lions lions invites invites me me back, back, and and I I come come back back in in disguise disguise myself myself as as another another student, student, and and they they do do the the business. business. They They do do the the case case study study on on my my business business plan plan and and students students just just rip rip apart. apart. All All the the silly silly things things that that I I was was thinking, thinking, and and how how strategy strategy was was off off and and the the always always different different things things were were were were blemishes blemishes or or problems problems with with the the with with the the business business plan. plan. And And then then eventually eventually Mike Mike asked asked me me to to come come downs. downs. I I take take off off my my baseball baseball cab cab come come down down to to the the further further class class and and tell tell her her what what actually actually happen happen says says a a real real fun fun kind kind of, of, you you know, know, live live case case study study around around the the business business that that that that actually actually worked worked despite despite all all the the problems problems in. in. So So that's that's a a lot lot of of fun fun for for me. me. You You know, know, I I got got my my first first big big break break from from a a Stanford Stanford alumni, alumni, John John Michael Michael who's who's very very first first investor investor if if he he had had come come up up with with the the original original idea idea for for the the business, business, and and you you know, know, he's he's been been a a huge huge proponent proponent of of entrepreneurs entrepreneurs is is a a first. first. Estrin Estrin Staples, Staples, kinkos kinkos copies copies and and was was really really the the guy guy that that stood stood by by me in during the tough times. After starting the business said, listen, I believe in you believe in the business steel stick through this. You're gonna make it instead of worrying about each of the issues to send me a fax. This is back. When people did a lot of faxing semi a fax every Friday in the one good thing that happened and you'll see after time, you're you're making progress in you know, it turns out he was right in. So I'm threader thankful now into Stanford. But also, John Michael for gave me the confidence to stick with it. And not let the first second third or fifteenth problem. He'll. Knock you down every startups have problems, but you probably saw beginning one more step closer to the solution. So that's a key part. And the other is just being back on campus. Really energizes you being around you all students the energy, you know, the taking you back to time. When you remember that anything is possible? There's nothing like that feeling of being on campus. So I get a lot out of it as well. Not you have enjoyed a fantastic career experienced a dramatic is on lows of entrepreneurship since we can help from shop floor. But But can can you you share share the the finished? finished? Oh, Oh, most most interesting interesting story. story. This This happened happened to to you you since since you you began began late late in in Ulan Ulan company company had had -solutely. -solutely. Well. Well. You You know, know, I I started started at at the the chip chip company company called called Silicon Silicon Systems Systems right right out out of of college. college. And And after after on on a a couple couple of of years years working working in in different different parts parts of of the the genera genera team team invited invited to to a a CEO CEO dinner dinner and and the the CEO CEO of of the the company company car car of of I I didn't didn't know know this. this. But But he he didn't didn't fight fight six six seven seven people people out out to to dinner dinner once once a a month. month. Trying Trying to to get get them them a a little little liquor liquor up up in in in in having having few few glasses glasses of of wine, wine, and and then then he he would would say say all all right, right, Kenny. Kenny. What's What's the the one one thing? thing? You You would would change change in in this this company. company. Just Just one one don't don't give give me me ten. ten. What's What's the the number number one one thing? thing? You You would would change change his his company company right right now, now, what what is is it? it? And And I I said said well well for for customer customer meeting meeting last last week. week. And And I I noticed noticed that that your your sales sales guys guys are are confused confused about about some some of of the the products. products. They're They're missing missing opportunities opportunities in in customers customers really really frustrated frustrated trying trying to to figure figure out out which which of of the the products products to to use use and and how how to to apply apply them. them. I I think think we we need need a a two two day day technical technical training training class class for for our our sales sales people people and and Karm Karm says, says, you you know, know, what what you're you're right right at at a a lot lot of of complaints complaints about about that. that. Hockey Hockey seemed seemed like like you've you've got got a a good good personality. personality. So So starting starting Monday, Monday, you're you're going going to to be be transferred transferred up up to to Silicon Silicon Valley. Valley. And And you're you're not not going going to to be be in in technical technical sales sales way. way. We'll We'll what what what what that's that's not. not. That's That's not not what what I I suggested suggested he he says says no no that that that's that's exactly exactly what what he he suggested suggested in in is is perfect perfect and and start start packing packing your your stuff stuff tomorrow. tomorrow. He He can can move move over over the the weekend weekend report report up up to to the the general general manager manager John John Tamil Tamil up up there there on on Monday. Monday. And And that that was was it. it. I I was was pushed pushed from from a a technical technical career, career, which which I I was was really really enjoying enjoying into into sales. sales. And And you you know, know, I I thought thought of of sales sales is is used used star star sales sales people, people, I I never never understood understood or or appreciated appreciated the the importance importance or or the the art art of of professional professional sales sales and and went went into into his his office office and and said, said, I'm I'm not not I'm I'm not not a a salesman salesman engineer engineer design design products products Bill Bill products. products. He He says says number number one. one. This This is is not not a a democracy democracy decisions decisions been been made made number number two. two. He He says says nobody nobody in in this this company company gets gets paid paid until until somebody somebody sells sells something something and and number number three. three. I I heard heard you you wanted wanted to to be be an an entrepreneur entrepreneur some some day day will will if if you you wanna wanna be. be. Sure, Sure, sell sell better. better. Learn Learn how how to to sell sell get get out out of of my my office. office. And And you you know, know, might might might might sales sales manager manager John John John John Tamil Tamil was was a a true true pro pro taught taught me me all all the the ropes ropes of of selling selling in in in in the the importance importance of of a a professional professional sales sales career. career. And And we we just just crushed crushed it it became became number number one one worldwide worldwide eventually eventually at at thought thought TD TD k k at at later later TI TI in in that that experience experience combined combined with with the the other other lessons. lessons. I I learned learned it it so so consistent consistent stay stay with with me, me, my my whole whole career, career, and and I I look look back back because because I I had had a a chance chance to to go go back back to to General General Motors Motors and and IBM IBM which which I'd I'd also also worked worked at at and, and, you you know, know, if if I'd I'd taken taken that that easy easy path path which which actually actually paid paid more more money money than than what what Silicon Silicon Systems Systems offered, offered, you you know, know, we've we've never never learned learned as as quickly quickly as as they they did did it it growth growth company. company. And And I I also also think think it it would would have have delayed delayed in in in in maybe maybe even even prevented prevented me me from from ever ever starting starting a a business. business. So So the the taking taking that that path path less less traveled traveled in in the the more more difficult difficult path path I I really really recommend recommend especially especially when when you're you're beginning beginning your your career. career. So So if if anyone anyone listening listening wants wants to to meet meet you you all all your your tape. tape. At At CS CS the the way way obey. obey. But But if if you've you've got got a a boot boot or or so so whether whether me me find find you you online online and and just just come come to to Mandeville Mandeville statements statements that that call call any any questions. questions.
