The future of racing is electrifying! Berlin ePrix 2016 - image source/courtesy FIA Formula E Championship

The motorsport industry is historically one of the cornerstones of the world’s sports market. Fast paced and energised, whether be it on two wheels, four wheels, on land, air or sea, it has always gathered a global following of enthusiastic fans.

When the FIA Formula E Championship was added to this buzzing sports sector, there was a sudden pause. The pause however, was caused by more of an inquisitive approach -  after all the historical hustle and bustle of loud roaring engines, popping exhausts and bursting cylinders, seemed to have been shelved for a more quieter and clinical approach. Formula E was the alternative, it brought about a futurist finesse that was sleek, clear and is indeed attractively electrifying....

Paving the way for the future of motorsport is a job description that Formula E reluctantly had to undertake. Though a pressurising role, it is a much needed one. With the use of electric-powered racing cars as its offering, it proves the theory of the benefits and effects of alternative energy. And by doing so, a giant advertisement for the future of racing was sparked!

A year in review - an OriginalSteps.com feature

One can safely deduce that people from here to Mars have something to say about the outgoing year 2016 - mostly bad things unfortunately. However such a bleak outlook is quite inconsiderate considering people, and actual human-beings where conceived and born within this year! These individuals might even end up becoming the next generation of superhero's the world has longed for.

However right now it feels like the world could use some superhuman strength to power through to 2017.

Highlights of individual experiences of working at one of the world's leading stock exchanges!

Lara Atkinson

When Lara Atkinson started as a student assistant in the Deutsche Börse Media Relations Team, she used to write posts like this one. Now, she works as PR & Content Manager for STOXX Ltd, our index provider based in Zurich. Through her work, Lara is travelling a lot and is connected to colleagues all over the world. In doing so, she likes to check twice which time zone her counterpart is in. Among ther things, she loves the immediate visibility of success in her work, e.g. when an interview or article is published. “Deutsche Börse has become a piece of home,” says Lara. “Here I have developed my skills and met many great people.”

Mélanie Moos

Mélanie Moos is on the fast track. She took over at the helm of Clearstream’s Lending Operations in Luxemburg at the age of 25. “My age was not a problem. I was able to adapt quickly because I joined a well-structured and motivated team,” says Mélanie. Together with her colleagues she manages securities lending and collateral management for the international central securities depository (ICSD) of Deutsche Börse Group. “For us no one day is like another.” Besides her work Mélanie really likes sports. She used to play Basketball in Belgium’s second division and has finished marathons.

Agathe Glatz

Variety and new challenges – two important factors for Agathe Glatz. Three years ago she started as a student assistant in the Relationship Management of our subsidiary Clearstream and even spent four month in England during that time. After her bachelor’s degree she is now supporting our German customers in the same department. “I really like the range of possibilities offered at Deutsche Börse. With all the widespread tasks and departments, everyone can find something interesting and it never gets boring,” she says.

Borg/McEnroe is a film of one of the world’s greatest icons Björn Borg and his biggest rival, the young and talented John McEnroe. It's a story of two men that became legends and the prize they had to pay.

The film stars Swedish award winning actor Sverrir Gudnason as Borg, American actor Shia LaBeouf as his tennis court rival, John McEnroe. As Borg’s trainer, the legendary Lennart “Labbe” Bergelin, Swedish acclaimed actor Stellan Skarsgård returns for a major part in a Swedish film for the first time in almost ten years.
