Looking the Tiger in the Eye

Dünya Executive, Published by Ahu Buyukkusoglu Serter, 17.04.2020 

Dr. Angelika Sodian is an esteemed colleague of mine and was supposed to be in Turkey to be a guest speaker at FARKLABS, if the coronavirus had not forced us to cancel this trip. I listened to one of her lectures in Germany and immediately thought that these are the kinds of learning experiences we need. I was already quite obsessed with learning from China, but reading Angelika’s book made me realise that companies need to systematise their learning. 

Dr. Sodian published her new book “In the Year of the Tiger – Why it is not too late to learn from China” during the Chinese New Year (late January), when the coronavirus was only just appearing on our horizon….

Automotive News Europe names the 2019 Rising StarS

Automotive News Europe, Douglas A. Bolduc, 06.05,2019

Twenty-one young and talented automotive executives have been named as Rising Stars in the automotive industry by Automotive News Europe. The ninth annual Rising Stars awards recognize fast-climbing leaders who are already taking big steps forward in the industry. From automakers to suppliers, manufacturing to connected cars, engineering to sales, each Rising Star has spearheaded change and made progress up the career ladder.

A number of this year’s winners stood out because they are at the forefront of the automotive industry’s rapid response to megatrends that include the shift toward new solutions for mobility, new ways to fuel cars – with electricity instead of fossil fuels – and new ways to travel in cars that will mean never touching a steering wheel.

Angelika Sodian, who is managing director of Chinese startup brand Nio in the UK, added that, “It’s not about the auto industry anymore. It’s about new solutions for mobility that will improve people’s lives.”

Yahoo Finance UK,Jill Petzinger,

A number of high-profile female car industry leaders took the stage in Stuttgart, Germany at the Women Automotive Summit with one clear message for women looking to succeed in the car world: help each other out.

The auto-industry bosses said that collaborating rather than competing with each other was the way for women to get ahead in the male-dominated motor industry.

Interesting Engineering,  12.11.2019

WAC Istanbul 2019 taught me how new technologies are disrupting the automotive industry. From blockchain to IoT, the automotive industry is transforming rapidly.

Dr. Angelika Sodian, Former MD NIO UK, China Expert and Author, believes that customer demand can transform the industry much faster. Taner Göçmen thinks government legislation that encourages EV production, R&D, and trade can trigger innovation in a short period.

Alla guida di Tesla è da poco arrivata Robyn Denholm. In GM c’è la «pioniera» Mary Barra. E in Italia c’è una nuova generazione di ingegnere che spinge

Corriere della Sera, Sara Gandolfi, 19.11.2018

Automotive, roba da uomini. Forse. Suscita ancora un po’ di clamore se una signora prende i comandi. L’ultima, in ordine di tempo, è Robyn Denholm, chiamata a sostituire un Elon Musk in crisi d’identità alla presidenza di Tesla. Il passaggio di consegne era atteso, dopo le accuse di frode, non l’arrivo di una manager bionda.

“Das Wichtigste ist es, ehrlich zu sein”

Wie eine Villacherin zur zentralen Figur eines chinesischen Elektroauto-Start-ups wurde.

Kurier, Horst Bauer, 09.05.2017

Eigentlich waren zwei Dinge klar für Angelika Sodian. Sie wollte nicht wieder in einer Firma angestellt werden, sondern mit ihrem Beratungsunternehmen selbstständig bleiben. Und sie wollte nicht aus Schanghai, wo die promovierte Betriebswirtin fünf Jahre lang deutschsprachige Zulieferer der Autoindustrie beim Aufbau ihrer Filialen in China beraten hatte, zurück nach Europa.
