Christoph Holz, IT specialist and aerospace engineer, studied at the Technical University in Munich, before starting up one of the first digital agencies in the German-speaking world in 1995. Two decades later, he founded a startup and moved his whole family to the Silicon Valley. Holz has been lecturing in subjects such as digital marketing, usability and design at various universities for 15 years, and is one of the few speakers able to bridge the gap between technology, business and society. His work as a speaker and host led Holz to CeBit, TEDx and even as far as Google in California. His entertaining and motivating presentations always pit entrepreneurial people and their skills against technology, encouraging them to impartially face up to new technological challenges.

People, books and events which inspire me: 
“In his book ‘The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined’, evolutionary biologist Steven Pinker proves that humanity really has made progress, and how we can shape our future for everyone’s benefit.
I have been inspired by Dale Carnegie, the Machiavelli for do-gooders, and Don Quixote.
