Wolfgang Gründniger held an inspiring keynote at our third annual conference of Circularity.
His impulse was both interesting as he caught the audience's attention with concrete and relatable stories and pictures as well as inspiring as he had a clear message and call to action.
We are grateful to have had him with us on stage and hope we can welcome him again in the future.
Dr. Wolfgang Gründiger's presentation "The Marshmallow Principle - Why Achievement Doesn't Lead to Social Advancement by Itself" was a great enrichment for the digital IB Congress "Rethinking Education - Social, Equitable, Digital! His presentation was perceived by the participants as eye-opening on the topic of a lack of equal opportunities. The communication regarding the organization of his lecture in the run-up to the congress and the follow-up was also extremely fast, friendly and uncomplicated. Many thanks! Internationaler Bund e.V.
Wolfgang Gründinger is very flexible, competent and goal-oriented. Despite a last-minute change on our part, he moderated a panel of top-class speakers in a motivated, professional and likeable manner. We would work with him again at any time!
Wolfgang enriched our first digital HANNOVER MESSE in the area of climate protection. On the main stage "Industrial Transformation Stage" he discussed with Claudia Kemfert, Michael Theurer and Donya Amer what is needed to achieve the climate targets. An exciting round of talks developed, in which Wolfgang communicated his point of view wonderfully. His speeches were particularly understandable and exciting for me. He is a very pleasant and likeable speaker. I was completely taken in by him and I'm sure I wasn't the only one! The social media reaction to the event was overwhelmingly positive. Many audience questions during the live session confirmed the interest in the topic and actors, and the spontaneous interaction with the panelists worked great. Thank you Wolfgang for being on board! I would be happy if we work together again in the future.
In a keynote speech, Dr. Gründinger presented the topic of "intergenerational justice" to schoolchildren in a punctual and target-group-oriented manner. The visualized presentation clarified his statements and conveyed his main messages to the participants. In a subsequent discussion, he responded to the questions with interest. The consultation in advance also went flawlessly.
That's how you want a moderator to be: very well prepared and structured, competent and well-versed in content, charming and approachable, friendly and relaxed. A well-founded but relaxed conversation at eye level, with many concrete and current references and examples. The 90-minute talk never faltered at any point and flew by. It was great fun listening to these two. Highly recommended!
Bernd Martin, Head of Edition Körber

In the context of the project "Generations in Conversation" we had very good experiences with Wolfgang Gründinger as an impulse generator and expert. The communication for planning was very pleasant. The way Wolfgang Gründinger presented his topic and acted with the audience was perceived very positively by the participants. We will gladly work with him again.
Wolfgang has a detailed knowledge of his proven subject matter. He is very eloquent in conveying complex content and adapting it to any given audience. He is also charismatic and able to draw interest from different groups of participants in any given event. I can recommend him highly for any public event or keynote speech.
Wolfgang Gründinger is a likeable and professional speaker. He can contribute valuable impressions and expertise in several thematic areas, cleverly integrate other interlocutors and distill the interesting questions of a discourse.
Wolfgang has an open, unifying presentation style and is not afraid to put forward critical theses.
Time management would be an area he could improve, as would the naming of concrete technical examples with the help of which he would like to implement his vision.
