„Leaders don't need Change Management!“

Are you looking for a reputable executive as speaker on leadership, change, or corporate merger?

Setting Things in Motion - Being a Force of Change

Experts estimate that at least two thirds of all change projects fail. Now our companies are hit by digitization with a broadside. Some companies find themselves overwhelmed by the complexity of the new. Out-of-control process landscapes and silo thinking prevent necessary innovations. Employees are afraid of missing the boat. Change is a tightrope act, but not witchcraft if you know where you want to go. Do you know where you want to go? How do you envision your company in five or ten years?


What challenges await your team on this path? Customers' problems will change and we need new, powerful strategies. Digital technologies and experience know-how need to be combined. Executives are looking for their new roles. They need to find the right balance between creativity and process. Use methodology and emotion in the appropriate dose: not digitally either - or, but steplessly and analogously. And we have to take care that our company does not lose its soul during that journey. How does this work in practice? This is what my keynotes are about.

Passionate Engineer, Inspiring Speaker

As an engineer I learned how to move great things and effectively bring power to the ground. Later, as a manager myself, I  got to know how to release power for change and new technologies in teams. Crises, restructuring and cultural change have strengthened our company: today we are a modern group company and world market leader. As a speaker and mentor, I share my knowledge and experience. Inspiring. Entertaining. Provocative. With substance. That is my claim. That is my performance promise.


My lectures are tailor-made for each individual event, and I love to speak without PowerPoint. As an expert in leadership and strategy, I bring my own experiences of change and my own mishaps to the stage. Touch with personal insights and perspectives. Make people laugh and entertain them. Let goose bumps moments come up. My goal is to inspire employees and bosses to think and shape new paths together. Listeners say that I am not a "smooth" speaker. Could be. I like to speak straight to the point. After all, the point is to help your company develop successfully.

Leaders to touch

"This book should become compulsory reading for all executives in our companies."

Dr. Heinz Ortner

This book is so valuable. I have ordered extra copies…

"Hartmann skips all the scientific derivations and quotes of other scripts. He writes out of real world and authentic experience. This book is so valuable. I have ordered extra copies, which I will hand to important executives and supervisory board members as an impulse to think about the required reshaping of our enterprise."
