Reinhard Dischner

Manager, doer, human. That is Reinhard Dischner in a nutshell. Widely travelled, cosmopolitan, with a pronounced knack for people, product and process, Reinhard Dischner has written company history as a top manager over the past decades.

He is a visionary manager and a passionate doer. But there is one thing in particular that distinguishes him: Being human.

"Anyone who has the chance to bring Mr. Dischner on stage into the company should not miss it." (Josua Laufer, expertenportal)

Reinhard Dischner - Speaker

Humility is a key to entrepreneurial success and personal happiness.

If you stop talking, you take the air out of your conversation partner.



If you think it's unthinkable, your thought already proves you are wrong.

Every person needs air to breathe and space to develop - this also applies to every employee.

Being aware of one's limits is a sign of humility

Empower your team and you will get back many times over.

When no one is in the comfort zone any more, it leads to chaos.

A good shepherd smells like sheep - and a good manager?

Make mistakes as a team - but don't immediately put the culprit up against the wall.

Testimonial #1 Designation

Business is always welcome!

Every difference makes a difference!

Team success also includes team failure.

If you think you are better than the others, then that is already the wrong approach.

Humility is a key to success: professionally and privately!

"The fish always stinks first at the head" - if one can smell that, then one should do something about it!

Element #19 Designation

If someone tells you "time is money", stop the hustle, get out of the grind, time is life!

Speaker Keynote

Topics & Talks

Focus or vision, agility or values, communication or announcement, motivation or depression, generation XYZ or "it's always been like this". These are all areas of tension in which Reinhard Dischner feels at home.

A suit does not make a manager

 Solution approaches for employees, managers and future customers.

Reinhard Dischner knows from his own experience that Casual Friday is long outdated. The Fridays for Future Generation, a new generation of employees, managers and customers are punishing old behaviour patterns. Generation clash, culture clash preprogrammed! Everything is being called into question, including established management. Reinhard Dischner shows with enjoyable examples how to turn this area of tension into a win-win situation: professionally and privately. The focus is on topics such as employee leadership, team culture, value standards or communication. Don't worry, there is no dress code for this keynote.

Every difference makes a difference

What makes the difference for employees, managers and customers to be successful?

What you can learn from the wiggle dodger and the crocheted toilet paper roll decoration on the hat rack in the car. Reinhard Dischner makes us think with unusual metaphors. He challenges, he provokes. But he also offers solutions for employees, managers and customers. Get to know Reinhard Dischner as a manager who cuts the fat with laser-sharp precision. Get to know the doer who doesn't just talk, but knows how and where to tackle. And get to know Reinhard Dischner as the person who always goes one step deeper, gets to the bottom of things and gives everything a human component. Reinhard Dischner makes the difference for your company and for you personally.

Happpy - with three `p`

A guide not only to business success, but to happiness as an entrepreneur, leader or employee.

Caution: This lecture can have a lasting effect on the happiness of your employees and as a consequence on the success of the company.


The Manager-Doer-Human Principle

As the son of an entrepreneur, Reinhard Dischner (born 1968) has also inherited this gene. After studying economics in Germany and Spain, he began his career as the youngest trainee and then business manager at Peek&Cloppenburg. He made the leap to international terrain at GAP Inc. in the USA. He enjoyed further education at Columbia University, NYC (USA) and at IMD in Lausanne (CH).

He was able to bring people, product and process excellence to PUMA for more than 18 years in top management and turn it into a legendary success story: As "General Manager of the cool stuff", so to speak SportStyle, he managed to expand his area of responsibility from under one to almost 4 billion and to lead a multicultural, global team in all core markets: From America to Europe/Africa to the Far East.

He likes to call himself "glocal" (a fusion of global and local) and has no problem with being called "value conservative". Reinhard Dischner has always managed to stay true to his values, even and especially when it was the more difficult path. He impresses with his vision, his will to assert himself and his resilience, shines with his analytical thinking and always manages to inspire people for his vision

As a father of two boys, he has experienced the generational leap from baby boomers to generations XYZ live and knows what he is talking about - professionally and privately.

As a private equity advisor and professional keynote speaker, Reinhard Dischner loves to share his expertise with a wider audience.
