What belongs together comes together… yesterday it was finally time. As someone who studied both sports and business administration, it was the perfect match to be the event host for the sportsbusiness.at Breakfast Club. Here the world of sports meets the world of business… and every time with exciting guests and speakers! And hybrid as well – with great breakfasts for the guests live on site and exciting insights for all guests who joined virtually.
An inspiring keynote by an inspiring athlete
The keynote speaker this time was Christoph Strasser, an extreme athlete! I’m still absolutely blown away by the insights I got into all the work behind Chris Strasser’s successes! He is THE most successful ultra-cyclist of today. The Austrian extreme athlete is a 6-time winner of the Race Across America and is the only person in the world to have completed 1,000 kilometers by bike in less than 24 hours! A phenomenal achievement.
Chris Strasser told us about the challenges of the Race Across America and also gave insights into his mental strategies. Such top performances can only be completed with a mindset absolutely focused on success. Christoph also told the audience about his defeats, which were the best learning experiences for him and made his later successes possible.
Great team, great guests
The founder and publisher of sportsbusiness.at Michael Fiala, together with Lorenz Kirchschlager and Simon-Peter Charamza, with whom I was already able to chat at length during the recording of the Kaffeehaus Talk Podcast, invited the audience to this hybrid event at the largest organic restaurant in the world: Kolarik’s Luftburg. The owner Paul Kolarik did not miss the opportunity to greet the guests personally.
At the breakfast sat a small but fine round from the world of sport & business came together, such as Stefan Sulzbacher (Interwetten), Rainer Geier (Sportradar), Harald Fux (Raumkunst), Wolfgang Hartter (sporteo), Michael Litschka (ML Marketing), Paul Eder (DHL), Josef Lindegrün (Wiesbauer), Reinhard Möseneder (Peeroton), Alexander Winheim and Thomas Hofer (Servus TV),Georg Pangl (Pangl Football Group) or Daniel Hupfer (Brandsetter), to name just a few names.
It was a pleasure and I am already looking forward to the next Sportsbusiness.at Breakfast Club!
