Throughout history, there are some who achieved greatness through conquest and power while others, much more to our liking, achieved greatness through innovation. That’s what this unique business tour is all about.
Innovations have shaped the history of mankind. Some were revolutionary, others were intermediate steps for further developments. Howe d id people in Vienna’s history deal with progress? Did they celebrate it? fear it? perhaps a bit of both?
Book our unique “Greatness through Innovation” tour to get to know some of Vienna’s greatest thinkers, most significant innovations and their impact on the city. See how creativity can impact the lives of millions and alter reality, especially in a place that historically preferred a more conservative, slow changing way of living. In today’s ever changing world, getting to know the innovators of the past can be not only inspiring but highly beneficial and practical for business owners, employees and students alike.
This one of a kind innovation tour will surely open the eyes of your team, guests or students. It is perfect for your next team building activity, professional conference, school excursion or private event as it will not only be entertaining but also thought provoking.
What can you expect when booking our Greatness through Innovation tour:
On our “In the Footsteps of Greatness” tour series, we aim to dive deeper into history and derive conclusions that can serve as life lessons. Instead of focusing on the “what”, we focus on the “how” and the “why” for a more profound experience.
In our eyes, every historical figure can serve as a mentor if we only walk in their footsteps. It can tell us what to do, how to think as well as what to avoid. For teams, learning from historical innovators and creators can bring a new and unique perspective and show that we have a lot in common with many of history’s greatest figures. They, like us, needed to adapt to new situations, to find ways to realise their ideas, to make the ideas commercially attractive and to avoid listening to critics while still taking constructive feedback. We are convinced that the added value of this tour will go even beyond our regular, fascinating walking tours in Vienna.
