From Perfection to Excellence - Lessons Learned from Astronaut Training

In general many people believe that astronauts are natural super heros, who never make mistakes and simply know it all. Success is in their genes and the path towards higher goals pre-set in their destiny. It's not a suprise to many that those people 'make it' - after all, they were born for it. Or not?! Can we learn to be successful? And if yes, what are the key ingredients for a successful career path? We will find out why perfection is most definitely not one of those traits that bring people into space or make them successful. You don't believe us? Come and join Laura, former ESA Astronaut trainer, explaining the difference of perfection and excellence and why only the latter is the single most essential character trait leading us towards our dreams and turn them into reality.

When the Future Begins: Start today and never end

The biggest misconception about the future is that it already exists, waiting for us somewhere beyond the horizon. If you want to create not just compete, you’ll first need to let go of this delusion. Futurologist Magnus Lindkvist will take you on a roller-coaster ride into the strange lands of future-driven imagination and creativity. What can retailers learn from pop bands? Why is failure an excellent starting point for success? Why is success toxic? And why does the future begin with making enemies?

PayPal - More payment methods and more opportunities with PayPal Checkout

PayPal Checkout is the new and complete payment solution for SMBs. Since April, all Shopware merchants have access to the PayPal Checkout product that offers more payment methods than ever, including PayPal, Credit Card, SEPA direct debit, invoicing, and a lot of popular international payment methods. Also, merchants can show their consumers flexible buy-now-pay-later options early in the checkout process, and benefit from future proof technologies, seller protection and risk protection systems.

We will talk about which advantages PayPal Checkout offers for merchants, and how you can easily change to it from PayPal Plus.
