In this opening episode, our host Sally Eaves assesses how vital innovation is to the future of mobility, as she speaks to Google’s Chief Innovation Evangelist and Adjunct Professor at Stanford University, Dr. Frederik G. Pferdt, and Michael Peter, Siemens Mobility’s Chief Executive Officer. 

It’s 200 years since railway technology changed society and sparked the Industrial Revolution, in the ultimate transportation innovation. Now, as the Covid-19 pandemic forces us all to rethink how we live, work and travel, our guests reflect on how new rail-based innovations can once again drive social transformation, making mobility safer and more sustainable, while also meeting the challenge of climate change head on. They also reveal the secrets of an innovator’s mindset and how to encourage creative thinking, even when people are negatively biased towards change.
