SHOPPING BRITTA BEHRMANN Senior Finance Manager, Deutsche EuroShop Last year, I bought myself a height-adjustable writing desk for my workroom. Now I can edit my travel photos while standing up and taking the strain off my back. RALPH BORGHAUS Head of Finance, Deutsche EuroShop When it comes to my “buy of the year”, there's room for debate about who it was actually for: the Carrera model motor racing track was actually a present for my son's seventh birthday. But there are those who say I was thinking more of myself when I bought it. Whatever the truth of it, we both have masses of fun with it, turning the living room into a race track and having daredevil duels with each other. SEBASTIAN BAUMANN Head of ECE Future Labs I think about innovations and new technology all the time. So of course I couldn't miss the chance to buy myself an Apple Watch. NICOLAS LISSNER Manager Investor&Public Relations, Deutsche EuroShop I made some big changes at home by switching from light bulbs and energy-saving lights to LED light- ing. The manufacturers claim these lights not only use up much less energy, but also last sig- nificantly longer – up to 10,000 hours. As three out of nine bulbs have already burned out, I'm not even going to venture preparing my own sustainability report yet. GRETEL WEISS Editor von food-service, dfv Mediengruppe I treated myself to some really cool party clothes on a complete- ly self-indulgent shopping trip to Munich. Looking and feeling and discussing the selection of clothes with girl friends in a nice shop is the best possible way of spending time. It's the mood that makes the difference. DR. TILL DUNEMANN Market Research Team Leader, ECE In 2015, after hesitating for years, I at last got round to buying my- self a new longboard – for surfing. Standing in front of the display in the shop, handling the boards and selecting the best, was exhilarat- ing - something you simply can't get by shopping online. It now goes with me everywhere when I trav- el and I've already enjoyed many happy hours with it on the water. OLAF HARTMANN Managing Director Multisense institut My “buy of the year” was a pair of Salomon Speedcross 3 running shoes. I got them from a specialist shop in Berlin, where they advised me and performed a treadmill anal- ysis on video. Buying them was re- ally fun and an experience in itself. Quite apart from the design, the main factors in my decision to buy them were the feel of the shoes and the expert's view that they wouldn't do any damage to my knee joints. All that time and effort paid off. 39
