Meet our Keynote Speaker:

Arne Friedrich is a former German National Soccer Team player International. He played 82 times for the German national team and participated in Euro 2004, World Cup 2006, Euro 2008 and the World Cup 2010.

After retiring from professional soccer, Arne Friedrich has remained active in the sport through coaching, as Sporting Director and ambassadorial roles, continuing to inspire the next generation of soccer players.

Arne is not only recognized for his accomplishments on the soccer pitch but also for his dedication to social causes off the field. As a passionate advocate for youth development and community empowerment, he established his own children’s foundation called Arne-Friedrich-Stiftung in 2015. The foundation supports terminally ill children at the youth hospice 'Haus Leo' by spreading hope and offering encouragement for any child who may feel unseen and separated. The Arne-Friedrich-Stiftung also focuses on education and integration. Through their initiated school program 'Vielfalt gewinnt,' the goal is to support inclusion, integration and to encourage adolescents to learn and grow together, regardless of their cultural background. Additionally, Arne has been involved in projects promoting democracy and youth sports participation, demonstrating his commitment to creating a better world beyond the realm of soccer. Through his philanthropic efforts and his own Podcast „From Done to Dare“ Arne continues to inspire others.

Throughout his career, he encountered setbacks such as injuries and periods of intense competition, yet he consistently demonstrated determination and perseverance to overcome these obstacles. Arne‘s unwavering focus, discipline, and ability to bounce back from adversity not only propelled him to success on the field but also serve as an inspiration for others facing similar trials. Beyond soccer, he has been advocating for strategies to build resilience and cope with pressure in both sports and everyday life. As a role model, he encourages individuals to cultivate inner strength, and maintain a positive mindset, emphasizing the vital role mental resilience plays in achieving personal and professional goals.
