Christoph is a filmmaker at heart, a keynote speaker and has been an entrepreneur since high school. After graduating from St. Gallen University, he co-founded a mobile phone reCommerce company which grew from 1M to 31M revenue in less than 5 years. Christoph understands that scaling a business doesn't just mean more manpower. Instead, he devotes himself to inspiring individual productivity and self-determined work, with the help of the latest online collaboration tools and 'new work' methods. This new digital setup has triggered many requests from fellow entrepreneurs and large corporations to support them in building the same environment in their companies. 

This is also how the idea for BLACKBOAT was born. A tech-focused consulting company, designed to help leaders increase team efficiency and productivity. Through the implementation of cloud tools and by encouraging more transparent communication, Blackboat helps free companies from their 90ies habits and brings them into the 21st Century.

Over the last few years, Christoph was also the face of BLACKBOAT. Through his own channels, e.g. Youtube, over 5M views, 25k subscribers and 10-12 videos per month and a watch time of over 1.5 million minutes he gained experience in the new ways of content production and shares his experience with clients and partners. In addition, the "On the way to new Work" podcast by Christoph Magnussen and Michael Trautmann reaches over 12-20k listeners per episode and as one of the top 6 podcasts from the Spiegel Online Bestenliste 2018 relevant decision makers in the New Work sector.
