WE(rtual) together against Corona.

The corona pandemic forces us to rethink processes, structures, products, services and instruments. We are all going through a steep learning curve in which creativity, improvisation and digitalization are strong driving forces. To promote and make the learning process in our company visible, we want to bring together digital innovators within TÜV NORD GROUP.


We want to make use of digitalization and creativity and invite all interested employees to two WErtual events:


ideaLEARN Night

Thursday, 28th May 2020

  • Language: English
  • Participants: All interested employees of TÜV NORD GROUP
  • Topic: Exchanging experiences, ideas and findings from the corona crisis and conveying a positive image of TÜV NORD GROUP and its innovative strength

faiLEARN Night

Thursday, 25th June 2020

  • Language: German

You would like to talk about your failed, faulty or difficult projects and ideas and would like to share this experience with others? Contact us or apply directly as a speaker.


If the fear of failure is so great that nothing new is tried out or driven, then this is equivalent to stagnation.

Anja Glowalla - Initiator of faiLEARN

What can you look forward to?

With the support of Dr. Dietmar Schlößer (Head of Digitalization and Innovation at TN AG), the event formats are to be implemented for all employees on a long-term basis to promote group-wide networking, exchange and learning. There are good reasons for your participation.

Voluntary - anyone can participate

faiLEARN and ideaLEARN are events for employees by employees. Cultural change only works together. Good cooperation always consists of give and take. We promise an entertaining evening - you invest your free time.

Neutral (virtual) space

Learning, thinking and inspiring each other requires freedom. faiLEARN and ideaLEARN are taking place virtually for the very first time, so that you can join in from anywhere.

Appreciative togetherness

Making mistakes is human, admitting mistakes to oneself requires the ability to reflect, talking about one's own mistakes in front of many people requires a large portion of courage. Those who, despite or because of the current situation, push forward and implement new ideas and suggestions in order to generate benefits for fellow human beings as well as employees, TÜV NORD and/or customers also deserve recognition. Instead of applauding, you are therefore welcome to react to the faiLEARNs and ideaLEARNs in the chat.

Short and spicy

No mono-conversation! Just like our speakers, they are part of the event. Get involved.

Open and trustful atmosphere

The speakers will be happy to answer your questions - within the Q&A session or virtual networking. Take advantage of the opportunity to learn from each other.

Respectful handling of project content and speakers

Our speakers will not be judged. They are pioneers. Accordingly, we will report on their faiLEARN and ideaLEARN in our internal communication channels with respect. Every story, every idea and every employee is welcome.

Improve yourself. Improve TÜV NORD.

Let us change the way we work together, act and communicate. Let us develop ways to inspire, motivate and strengthen each other. Let us use the opportunities to share our information, knowledge and experience with others and thus benefit from each other. 

faiLEARN and ideaLEARN invite you to do so.

In this event we do not want to look for those responsible for failure, but to learn to deal with mistakes constructively. We want to make the experiences and insights available to as many people as possible and thus bring the possibility of learning from each other to the fore.
