Hi, I'm Jonas
Meet the Founder of Slow Works
Jonas has years of experience in corporate training, teaching Fortune 500 companies about technology and innovation, to up-level their workforce and accelerate transformation. 2019, Jonas Haefele founded Slow Works to help organizations explore how to use technology mindfully, embracing the potential of tech while caring for the people and the planet.
He's also co-founder of LGBTQ+ entrepreneur network Series Q, a yoga and mindfulness teacher, and has recently launched A Quick Pause, a podcast offering little mindful practices to reconnect, heal and empower.
Before venturing into tech and facilitating culture change, Jonas has studied future sciences and product development at Zurich University of the Arts, learning to identify cultural macro and micro trends and how to build products that respond to societal needs. Jonas has a background in classic Swiss print design and typography but has also been fascinated by the internet and its potential since the late 1990s. After receiving his BA as best in class, Jonas spent two years in a digital advertising agency, where he led the development of ground-breaking and award-winning campaigns. However, he became disillusioned by the simplistic message to "buy more stuff", pushing him to move to London and seek new opportunities that aligned more with his values.
Throughout his career, Jonas has collected a wide range of tools that center around the craft of storytelling, facilitation, and bridging gaps, translating - sometimes literally, often figuratively - between different parties to foster consensus and understanding.
Jonas is excited to use his skills and experience to bring people together and help them bring change to their organizations. If that sounds like you, leave us a message:
