Walter Gunz began his career as a department manager at Karstadt and in 1979 founded Media Markt, now Europe's largest electronics store giant. With his motto that trust produces quality and that joy as well as recognition lead to successful action, he led his once 22,000 satisfied employees. "You mustn't grind people into shape, then they become smaller and smaller" - the loss of individuality leads to joyless employees, because success is only achieved "when you do something completely and with conviction". Today, the studied philosopher deals with the big questions of life - love, faith and hope - and published the book "The Gift" in 2017. For him, material wealth does not count and he is convinced that money and success are neither a guarantee for love and happiness nor for health. In his lectures, he inspires and enthuses his audience with a wealth of ideas and his lived success story. He gives courage to make decisions in order to actively shape the future.

"He is a successful German entrepreneurial personality and at the same time an artist and free spirit. Walter Gunz is a (thoughtful) doer, a rational dreamer and a man who loves and lives freedom. It was not his success that made him independent, but his independence that made him successful." Guido Westerwelle
