“A moderator always bears a great responsibility for the success and spirit of an event and Leo is one of the best I’ve worked with. We have been on stage together many times and I always enjoyed the ease and professionalism in which he moderates discussions. He is able to extract the key take away points all peppered with his good sense of humor.”
_Member of the Board of Management BMW AG
“I have shared the stage with Leonhard many times. His presentation style enhances the event as much for the audience as for those on stage. He combines an instinct for the most interesting topics with a great understanding of both the protagonists and the audience, who often find themselves included! It is always a pleasure to work with Leonhard.”
_Founder of Fast Company magazine, Former Managing Editor Harvard Business Review
