Mastering Mergers and Transformations

THE keynote speaker for corporate acquisitions,
change challenges and post-merger integration.

"Somehow you trigger more in your audience than you realize."

Have you merged two companies and want to energize your team for the journey ahead? Are you facing significant changes or disruptions, and want to unleash motivation and a spirit of optimism in your team? Are you looking for a keynote speaker who is a practitioner and has experienced such a journey himself? Someone who encourages and speaks plainly about what is important to drive home change success?

Professional Keynotes for Merger, Change and Transformation

Bruno Hartmann "The Engineer" is one of a few active top executives who share their experiences on stage. He looks back on an industry career of more than 30 years, starting as an application engineer for drive technology in construction machinery and rising to management positions. For many years, he has been part of an impressive executive team and a member of the supervisory board at Bosch Rexroth AG, a world leader in industrial drive technology.


He is one of the most effective keynote speakers on mergers, transformations and leadership challenges. With storytelling, a fine balance of knowledge, humor and very personal experiences, he creates a mood of determination and courage. Gladly without PowerPoint. Well-known customers from industry, medium-sized businesses and banks give you the security of working with a professional speaker and down-to-earth engineer who provides valuable impulses even to demanding listeners. Each of his keynotes is individually "engineered" to the target audience and the situation.
