Speakers 2022


This year we will once again welcome more than 60 high-profile speakers from politics, business, science and culture.

Our guests

Olaf Scholz
Olaf Scholz

German Chancellor

Olaf Scholz


German Chancellor, SPD

Olaf Scholz, born in 1958, was elected as only the 9th Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany on December 8, 2021. This needs to be remembered occasionally when general criticism of the Social Democrat once again gets out of hand: Whether he communicates enough and moderates coalition sufficiently energetically or not: the man can win elections. And he must govern in the face of a turning point in Europe unprecedented since World War II.

Marc Beise
Annalena Baerbock
Annalena Baerbock

German foreign minister

Annalena Baerbock


German foreign minister, BÜNDNIS 90/DIE GRÜNEN

born in 1980, became the first woman to be Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs in December 2021. The Green politician ran as a candidate for chancellor in the 2021 federal election. Baerbock studied political science with a minor in public law, and her hobbies include trampolining. She was recently Germany's most popular politician for a time.

Caspar Busse
Robert Habeck
Robert Habeck

German Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection

Robert Habeck


German Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection, BÜNDNIS 90/DIE GRÜNEN

born in 1969, has been under fire since the first day of the traffic light coalition. The former Green Party leader actually wanted to drive forward the climate-friendly transformation of the economy. Instead, he is now the federal government's top troubleshooter - in the fight against the energy crisis.

Michael Bauchmüller
Karl Lauterbach
Karl Lauterbach

German Federal Minister for Health

Karl Lauterbach


German Federal Minister for Health, SPD

Karl Lauterbach, born in 1963, undoubtedly has one of the most important jobs in the country. As Germany's health minister, he's tasked with bringing down the pandemic - and also defending his impressive talk show ratings. Where would Markus Lanz and Anne Will be without him? Lauterbach owes his appointment as federal minister in part to the popularity his public appearances brought him at the start of the pandemic. However, the medical graduate has not only enthusiastic fans, but also enthusiastic critics.

Angelika Slavik
Christian Lindner
Christian Lindner

German Federal Minister of Finance

Christian Lindner


German Federal Minister of Finance, FDP

He got the office he really wanted: Christian Lindner, born in 1979, has been Federal Finance Minister for almost a year. Since then, he's been practicing the discipline of all treasurers: saying "no. In 2023, he wants to comply with the debt brake again, and taxes are not to rise either. It's not easy being finance minister, Lindner likes to say. But he probably wouldn't want to change jobs.

Henrike Roßbach
Friedrich Merz
Friedrich Merz

Federal Chairman of CDU

Friedrich Merz


Federal Chairman of CDU

One thing you can't deny Friedrich Merz is perseverance. Born in 1955 in the Hochsauerland region of Germany, the politician's career seemed to be over in 2002 after a power struggle with then-Chancellor Angela Merkel and a failed bid for the CDU presidency in 2018. But in January 2022, his party elected him as its federal chairman after all, and a short time later, the lawyer and hobby pilot took over the chairmanship of the CDU/CSU parliamentary group in the Bundestag and thus the important office of leader of the opposition.

Uwe Ritzer
Sir Tim Clark
Sir Tim Clark

Emirates Airline

Sir Tim Clark


Emirates Airline

Sir Tim Clark, born in 1949, was part of the founding team of Emirates and has been instrumental in its expansion into the largest international airline. Clark has been President of Emirates Airline since 2003. The hub in Dubai, which is unparalleled anywhere in the world, is his creation. Emirates offers long-haul connections there to all parts of the world. After the deep cut of the Corona pandemic, Clark and his team are busy restoring the Dubai hub to its former greatness as quickly as possible.
