more about the lecturer


Athlete and entrepreneur, speaker and coach, author and lecturer. The diversity of my tasks and roles developed as early as my school days. At that time, learning on land and training in the water was parallel in my focus - until 1984, when I successfully completed the exams in High school and won at the Olympics - with only a few weeks in-between. Since then, new challenges and opportunities have constantly arisen - in recent years, increasingly due to the digital transformation and artificial intelligence.

A good ten years ago, I asked myself how digitization would change my life and profession, no matter what technologies were used. The answer was simple: collaboration and communication in our everyday lives will evolve in a revolutionary way within the digital transformation. Artificial Intelligence gives another boost.

New skills will become necessary for me, whether as a consultant to companies, a trainer in seminars, or as a speaker of keynotes. After several years of studying and trying out, working in theory and practice, the results have not only been compiled in books. As a lecturer at the Goethe University of Frankfurt for organization and leadership in the digital age, scientific research is constantly being processed and new methods reviewed. I can use this work in my other tasks, in my consultancy and to update keynotes as a speaker.

Digital transformation closes the circle to my experiences in the sports career. In short, standing still means taking a step backward. Digitization always offers something new, almost every day, just as every workout in sports used to offer new experiences. Today, however, deepening my own knowledge also benefits others. And I get a lot back. Because for me, the exchange of experiences in digital transformation is the exciting thing, whether as an entrepreneur and lecturer, as a trainer and speaker. For me, only one thing is certain: life is never boring!
