Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Christof Niederwieser studied International Economics at the University of Innsbruck, Austria. He has many years of management experience both in the music business and as Head of Brand & Business Development for one of the top 50 German luxury companies. He acts as a consultant for companies in the areas of strategy, branding and human resources and is a renowned astrologer, with publications and lectures worldwide.
Since the 1990s, he has been conducting extensive research on the vast field of prognostics, focusing on the hidden relationships between ancient divination practices and 21st century forecasting methods. His first book, "On the Magical Practises of Management" (2002), featured a cultural-historical comparison of antique personality models like the four temperaments and state of the art tools of modern Management Diagnostics like Reddin's 3D Theory of Leadership or the Manager Typology of Maccoby. His PhD thesis, "Magical and Modern Prognostics", is an extensive investigation of mankind's numerous and varied approaches to anticipating the future, from omen in Africa, Haruspices in Babylon, Auspices in Rome, Physiognomics in India and I-Ging in China to the exit polls, business forecasting, genetic tests, NLP patterns and Big Data analytics of today. Extracts from this work have been published in his books, "Prognostics 01: Future Visions" (2015) and "Prognostics 02: Signature Analytics" (2016).
