What our clients say

"The analytical and synthetic output and collaboration mindset of Olaf, Tobias and the Cambrian team were outstanding as they crafted a high-quality comparison of 13 national AI strategies, including a critique of and recommendations for a German strategy for us. The team clearly exceeded the required value and created a product that does not have any equal globally. Meanwhile, the team maintained a highly professional and tightly client-focused modus operandi. My colleagues and I at The Konrad Adenauer Foundation are pleased to continue working with Cambrian Group as we move forward with our work towards a Society 5.0."
Dr. Lars Hänsel
Head of Team Europe/North America at Konrad Adenauer Foundation
"Olaf has been a valuable and personable thought-partner for me in my innovation-focused roles at Volkswagen, as we have explored the frontiers of automobile transportation and venturing. He has stepped to my side with a rare combination of the ability to connect dots between insights in different content domains, a passion for creative strategic thinking on frontiers, empathy for organizational dynamics, and an extensive global network."
Burkhard Huhnke
VP of Automotive Strategy at Synopsys Inc
"During my time at Boeing International and the BMW Foundation, I have found Olaf to be a dynamic and loyal collaborator. He is a savvy builder of strategic dialogues, initiatives, and networks with diverse sets of senior stakeholders ranging from government executives, diplomats, and R&D leaders to think-tank managers, entrepreneurs, and corporate CEOs. Olaf's help was instrumental to our early efforts at Boeing to set the agenda and get anchored in the market vis-a-vis strong local competition."
Horst Teltschik
Former President of Boeing Germany
"During a difficult and uncertain consolidation period in the global solar industry, Olaf stepped into a role as an interim VP for Corporate Development & Innovation at Q-Cells, providing much needed strategic leadership. He did so by contributing the focused energy of an entrepreneur and the judgment of a seasoned executive. Olaf successfully brought us a fresh perspective at competitive dynamics and the global market context as we re-calibrated our approach to winning business. I look forward to working with his firm again soon."
Boris Schubert
GM Solar and Storage Projects at Shell (former CEO at Q-Cells)
"Olaf provided critical guidance on a strategy for the acquisition of a new internal early-stage technology fund focused on the energy innovation domain, specifically smart grids. As Olaf lent his expertise innovation trends and in qualifying new initiatives with senior executives, he quickly integrated into our team and was responsive to our daily pressures while also retaining his intellectual independence as an adviser."
Chenyang Xu
Partner Silicon Valley Future Academy (former GM at Siemens)
"Olaf and his firm lent us invaluable expertise in innovation strategy, ventures, and networks, as well as innovation-driven economic development. His ability to frame innovation themes and trends that matter most, and then place them in a global context, enabled us to effectively describe the relevance of our regional system for our stakeholders regionally, nationally and globally."
