„Digital times call for analog leaders!“

Are you searching for an inspiring and thrilling keynote speaker for change, leadership, or corporate transformation?

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 digital transfomation with a broadside. Small companies feel overwhelmed. Large ones become "agile" and try copying Silicon Valley. Employees are afraid to miss the boat. In all the hustle and bustle, we forget the essentials: modern leadership. What we need are powerful strategies, respect, and committed employees who contribute with their expertise.


We need to rewire new technologies and existing experience. Anticipate which problems our customers will have tomorrow. Find the right balance between creativity and process. Balance management methodology and emotion in the appropriate dose: not digitally either - or, but analogously. And we have to take care that our company does not lose its soul. How does this work in practice? This is what Bruno Hartmann's lectures are about.

Passionate Engineer, Inspirational Speaker

As an engineer, Bruno Hartmann knows how to move great things and effectively bring power to the ground. As an executive he has learned how to free the power for change and new things in teams. As a speaker and mentor, he shares his wealth of experience. Inspiring. Humorous. Provocative. His passion is to continuously renew companies. He is a practitioner with an eye for the essentials and does not fit into a drawer between logic and passion.


The expert for leadership and corporate development brings experienced change, success patterns and his own mishaps to the stage like no other. He touches with personal insights and perspectives. He inspires and motivates employees and bosses alike to work together to create new paths. Listeners say he is not a "smooth" speaker. That's true: he speaks straigt from the gut. He helps companies and the people in them to develop successfully.
