This event puts a fishbowl twist on the classic panel format.

As well as our three female guests one seat at the table will be empty and open for audience members to join in on the discussion. Our moderator for the evening, Kaddie, will make sure everyone has a chance to participate in an open discussion.

“We’re tired of the panel talks that tell you to be your ‘most authentic self’. Let’s create a format that is open for participants.” Kaddie – Co-Founder of goalgirls

Our Fishbowl Panel is hosted in collaboration with Factory Berlin partners, goalgirls.

Laura Lewandowski – Journalist

Laura Lewandowski in one sentence: she is a journalist and so much more.

Kaddie Rothe – Co-Founder of goalgirls

Kaddie, born 1992 in North Germany, is co-founder and CMO. Her interdisciplinary design education at Goldsmiths (University of London) has taught her to invent her own creative disciplines and design for the future over status quo. Her focus is on the development of experiential concepts and pioneering brand activism. She reads a lot, can’t draw at all and drives everyone mad with her impulsive decision making.
