What You'll do

What’s this event all about?

The world is changing rapidly, innovations are launching on a daily basis and technological disruption is happening in every industry. Whether you are a globally acting and well established corporation or an early-stage start up, there is one thing you need to do in order to stay ahead of the game: THINK BIG. And this also means: THINK DIGITAL.

And I am not just saying that because it sounds great and catchy but because my own story proves it. When I founded Runtastic together with 3 friends in 2009, I didn’t know that it would one day be one of the most successful entrepreneurial stories within Europe. Neither did I know that only 6 years later, we would be selling our company to Adidas for 220€ Million and that I would be taking a leadership role there - at one of the greatest companies of our times. However, I can say that key to my success was always to think big and think digital!

Let me take you on an inspirational journey through my lessons across leadership, digital innovation and of course, life itself. I promise, you will leave the keynote motivated to tackle whatever is in front of you in your own professional environment.

Who can take this class?

This event is for everybody. I have spoken in so many different environments, ranging from the Mobile World Congress, Bits & Pretzels and NOAH to Audi, MediaMarkt and McKinsey and always got the same feedback: people feel motivated and inspired. So, I am certain that you will, too.

Why should we take this class?

Sometimes we all need someone who tells us that we shouldn’t wait for opportunities but rather create them ourselves. In this event, I will be that person for you and your colleagues. Sharing my know-how and my key lessons across leadership, teamwork, digitalisation, technology and intrinsic motivation, I will leave you well prepared for all challenges with a different mindset: THINK BIG (AND DIGITAL)!

How is this event structured?

At first I will be giving you a brief personal introduction of around 10 minutes and make a connection between the story I am going to tell and the company that I will be speaking to. I am a fan of incorporating your mission, vision and values within my introduction. Then, in the main part of the event, I will present a multimedia presentation for about 30 minutes, and at the very end, we will do a very interactive Q&A session for another 15-20 minutes.

Your host


Florian Gschwandtner

Hey, I am Florian Gschwandtner, co-founder of Runtastic which I sold for 220€ Million to Adidas (now Adidas Running) as well as co-founder of Tractive where I am currently working as Chief Growth Officer. I love to come up with innovative new ideas, support startups who came up with such ideas (30+ investments) and share my knowledge with people to motivate them to come up with such ideas.

I am an often-requested and well-practiced Keynote speaker who spoke at various international conferences and events (Mobile World Congress, Bits & Pretzels, NOAH, Audi, MediaMarkt, McKinsey, Adidas, K5 Marketing Conference). I like to actively interact with all event attendees and I am looking forward to meeting you at our virtual event!
