I am an entrepreneur, a global knowledge nomad, developer, consultant, change agent, part time university lecturer, researcher, editor, and a life-long student working as a business & communication designer internationally from Europe to China.

Born in 1970 in Innsbruck, Austria – I am founder and Managing Director of Stefan Blachfellner Consulting e.U. – B original Business & Communication Design. Since 1999 I have worked as a business developer and consultant in the areas of organizational development, corporate communication, knowledge management, strategic management and business excellence with broad experience in Fortune TOP 500 industries, and the service sector as well as in public administration and cultural and educational organizations.

Graduate at the University of Salzburg I studied Communication, Management- and Social Psychology and Economic- and Social History. In 2004 – 2006 I supported the development of the strategic focus “ICT&S – Information and Communication Technologies & Society” at the University of Salzburg, Austria, as the Center Manager. I am currently part time university lecturer and thesis supervisor at the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences Campus Steyr and Hagenberg,  CAMPUS 02 University of Applied Sciences Graz in Austria, and the Danube University Krems in Austria, teaching 10 subjects in six different curricula, including entrepreneurship, leadership, creativity and innovation, innovation & ethics, future studies, applied systems, complexity, and network theory, large systems interventions, public relations, information and communication technologies, and digital products and markets.

I am one of the co-founders and active ambassadors of the international Change the Game Initiative, where paradigm changers meet. We push boundaries connecting innovation, leadership, and ethics. I am interested in Ethonomics, leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship, social innovation, systems research, and design thinking.

I am an active member in several international scientific communities dedicated to social and technological innovations and systems science and research. I serve JeDEM – eJournal of e-Democracy and Open Government as managing editor, and served the international peer-reviewed “tripleC – Cognition, Communication, Co-Operation” Open Access Journal for a Global Sustainable Information Society as managing and consulting managing editor. As a guest editor I have served the International Review of Information Ethics (2009) and the Journal of Organisational Transformation and Social Change (2012 forthcoming).

I am married, father of 2 kids, I enjoy training at the gym, photography, movies, music, delicious vine and food, traveling around the world, meeting inspiring people, listen to inspiring stories, tell some sometimes, and enjoy my lifetime with people I care for.
