what people say

“I believe it is very important to think in generations. For me, the Impulse Summit is a Think Tank. I am here to learn from students and from the next generations. That is why this appointment is very important for me.”

Fritz Keller
President, German Football Association (DFB)

“I was impressed being here today, that it is very professional. It is very well run. There are a lot of people who are really interested, so it is good to be affiliated.”

Olaf Swantee

“Only when you challenge an idea and getting someone out of his comfort zone you can create something big. You are not following, you are shaping.”
