#ThePowerOfX Speaker: Meet Gregor Rohrig

Gregor Rohrig takes to the TEDxCapeTown stage in 2021.

A passionate creative that loves sharing his insights and viewpoints, Gregor Rohrig is a trained Visual Journalist, Social Anthropologist, and Depth Psychologist with nearly 20 years experience as a photographer who recognises what it takes to evoke an authentic response and build meaning through imagery. 

Using his career experience and insight, Gregor found that he was able to help clients and their people by providing a decisive, outside perspective that lends an eye when identifying blindspots, analysing processes, and solving more nuanced behavioural and managerial challenges. Currently, he works as the Visual Anthropologist for Yoco, a fin-tech startup. 

Gregor will be sharing how visual anthropology can be used as both a reflective and observational tool when helping document, reflect, and understand the meaning behind thriving work cultures, and their growth. 

We asked Gregor a couple of questions to help you get to know him, before he takes the TEDxCapeTown stage.
