San Francisco, CA. The Maybach Foundation joined an array of its supporters, contributors, and patrons at a private luncheon hosted by the Maybach brand at this year’s Concours d’Elegance. This intimate, invite-only gathering, which took place at Pebble Beach, California on Saturday, August 19th, 2023, was a unique opportunity for Mercedes-Maybach enthusiasts, exclusive Maybach Foundation Contributors and Patrons, as well as industry executives to come together in support of mentoring, sophistication, & innovation.
In addition to an exquisite lunch, guests of the foundation were treated to an intriguing Maybach panel discussion which saw the likes of Dr. Poppy Crum (An Expert in Technology-Driven Innovation & Human Evolution at Stanford University), Daniel Lescow (CEO of Mercedes-Maybach), as well as Ulrich Schmid-Maybach (President and Founder of the Maybach Foundation) exchange their thoughts and ideas on the role of modern technologies and the rise of artificial intelligence. The discussion, moderated by well-renowned television talk-show host, Chi-Lan Lieu, both invigorated and enlightened all who were fortunate enough to be in attendance.
“During these avant-garde, expeditious, and continuously evolving times, it is imperative for us to focus on building, and maintaining trust. Trust within our organizations, trust amongst our communities, and trust within ourselves. We, as the Maybach Foundation, want to be involved, and for that matter associated, with members, corporations, and projects that stand for something innovative and pioneering, but more importantly, trustworthy,” explained Ulrich Schmid-Maybach, President, and Founder of the Maybach Foundation. “There is no doubt that technology and artificial intelligence will continue to shape the modern world, however it is what we do with these technologies, and how we use them to support one another that will define us.”
Mr. Schmid-Maybach further outlined the purpose of the Foundation, as well as upcoming initiatives and collaboratives efforts, while other members of the panel included their own take on artificial intelligence, and technology, and how these topics continue to be incorporated into their own organizations and industries. Robert Landsness from Engel & Voelkers stated : “It was exciting to join the Maybach Lunch during this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The thought leadership panel on the subject of AI was truly remarkable. We at Engel & Voelkers share the vision that mentorship is crucial to the future of our society. Together we achieve more!”
