Gamechanger Boostcamp

23. Mai 2024 / 9:45 24. Mai 2024 / 15:30

In our „Gamechanger Boostcamp: Let’s speedrun your career!“ we offer you a playful approach to tackle the next planning steps in your professional life. After all, why shouldn’t what motivates us in gaming also take us to the next level in real life?

Who is this workshop for?

  • For anyone who likes games and wonders how to use the power of games for their lives. However, this workshop is not only a game, it should have real impact for your future endeavours
  • For anyone who wants to get to grips with their professional success, whether at the beginning of their studies or already with their first professional experience
  • For anyone who is still unsure about what they want to do with their life and is looking for guidance with an open mindset
  • For everyone who understands the English language (moderator also speaks German)
  • For everyone who can treat each other with respect, regardless of gender or origin

Please have a look at the schedule, where you will also find details for a short digital info call about the event.


What can you expect?

Find strategies, tools and
like-minded
people who can support you
on your future journey.

Two 4h days of programme await you: No streaming, but face to face. Get ready for an interesting story, at the end you can decide the destiny (of yourself and the world).

The basic mode is single player. You can’t hide in a group effort, because you are responsible for your future in real life too. However, nobody is forced to interact in front of the whole group. And you will also have the opportunity to exchange ideas with others.

If you have gained something from the workshop and you don’t see yourself as an NPC in your future, you can switch to Creator mode in an optional 3-hour event.
We will show you a new skill tree to start your own projects.


The Story

By chance, we have recently started receiving video messages from a mysterious figure from an alternate dimension of the multiverse. Linguists have managed to translate the language to English and his plan has come to light: the guy calls himself Gamemaster and has already brought his own planet under tyranny with his disturbing visions. A „game“ entertains the masses and people will do anything to play along. Regardless of the losses.


Now he has found a dimensional rift and wants to add Earth as an extension pack for his plans. We have been able to stall him so far, but the Gamemaster has given us an ultimatum: We are to put young people who are currently thinking about the future of their working lives up for election as representatives of our planet: Who will accept the Gamemaster’s tempting offer, or who will resist?


You will be guided through this process and playfully reflect on your wishes for your future work and the path to it. We think about this from the end (vision statements), create personal prototypes, identify your inventory (resource profiles). We also look at obstacles and PowerUps to make it easier to avoid them. Towards the end, we look for allies and learn how to convince others (and possibly the Gamemaster’s minions) of your plans. We combine tools from the fields of gamification, design thinking and social innovation.


Our Schedule
