Jochen Werne: Innovation and Business, Society and Diplomacy, Ocean and Passion strongly aim at a positive change for the future. International expert in finance and blockchain, head of several private and corporate Banking divisions, keynote speaker, actively committed in diplomacy and economy transformation following the current shift to Sustainable Development as wished by United Nations and major political, technical and business bodies, he is extremely fond of communicating his passion for oceans and the virtuous interlink between human beings and nature. Jochen Werne does believe in the importance of everyone's potential diplomacy in contributing to keep peace and a balanced approach to preserve natural ecosystems. “Innovation and business, society and diplomacy, ocean and passion are strongly connected and we, together with our different talents in today’s connected world, can push forward with positive change for good everyday”, in these words is enclosed the sense of his enlightened thought. His strong sense of adventure and respect for the scientific world at the service of Nature, led him to be involved in many ocean missions considerably appreciated by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and other major Head of States, notably the President of France and Austria. All that brought him to further increase his knowledge and experience. He also launched a targeted international group whose members from all over the world have relevant naval backgrounds. This body aims at keeping live naval traditions and highlighting the role of ocean expeditions as a cornerstone of world balances.
WE are living in one of the most fascinating times our planet has ever seen. A time when, thanks to enormous technological progress, we humans have the opportunity to improve the lives of so many people in our society without sacrificing our own well-being.
TOGETHER we can create a better society. We should never forget that bringing people from different cultures and backgrounds together, discussing and reflecting on each other’s perspectives already creates understanding and is the basis for forward-looking solutions. It is also something that each of us can easily do. It is a way of people’s diplomacy. In times of great change, which automatically leads to uncertainty, it helps to provide historical and technological understanding and analogies to today’s discussants in order to find better solutions for all possible consequences of new inventions on our society.
BALANCE. As a sailor with a great passion for our oceans, I strongly believe that man and nature must be in balance. To maintain balance, it is important to be aware of possible imbalances. To generate the right attention, it takes passionate scientists and passionate communicators to reach out to the general public with the important issues. With the support of the public and the power of technology and diplomacy, people have repeatedly found creative solutions to the most difficult situations they have faced in history.
I strongly believe that in today’s interconnected world, together with our different talents, we can make positive changes for a better world every day.Jochen Werne
