P1 / P1 People - This is us / Sven Fissenewert

Sven Fissenewert


When I left school, I faced a crossroads: the one direction was “practical, honest no-frills trade” while the other was “general degree, understand what holds the world together” (I didn’t want to do anything less than that - funny how it is with personal ambition). I didn’t make a decision, or rather I chose to go both ways. For ten years I traveled the two roads in parallel, then joined the start-up Process One (today P1) (although I think the term didn’t exist back then...). What is it about trade that I still have today? The love of form and the knack for the right ratio of input to output.

Three questions for Sven Fissenewert

Oh oh, power cut – what now?
Get the wood burning in the stove, carry on reading.

The page is empty – what now?
No problem. As long as there is no time pressure, it will stay empty.

How does change succeed?
Listening inward and living the answers outward, every day a little more.
