Hello. Fifteen Seconds is an international platform at the intersection of business, innovation, and creativity, calling all curious minds eager to share their knowledge, drive positive change, and shape the future. Since 2014, tens of thousands of people have exchanged ideas and pushed each other forward at our events. Learn more about our company and the forces that drive us.
Since our foundation in 2012, we have established principles that define how we work together as a team. As an imperative for ourselves, they remind us every day that together we are the strongest and they help us to create an environment that enables each of us to give their best.
We expect you to work towards goals, not checkmarks on your task list. We want you to assess, prioritize and challenge your work on efficiency. Get stuff done, but be resourceful and always look for leverage.
Turn implicit knowledge into explicit knowledge. We want everyone working with and for you to be able to relate and challenge procedures and solutions at any time.
A smarter you results in a better company. Strengthen strengths, weaken weaknesses. Learn something new every week. Tell everyone about what you learned and how you can use the newly acquired know-how.
It’s not how you start that’s important, it’s how you finish. Think and execute projects for the sake of the result, not the initial idea nor the journey.
Do what you announce and always try to exceed expectations. Reliability is at the core of our values and the basis for the firm’s and everyone’s individual growth.
Come up with your best solution and be able to debate it. Don’t ask how to do it, rather use good judgement, consider proven success and invest some time to research, then present it.
Strive to do better, it will pay off. Go one step further and try as hard as you can to achieve things that feel, read or work great rather than good.
