Oliver Stoldt meets Thorsten Leibenath – Basketball-Expert

15. January 2024 – Oliver Stoldt

Oliver Stoldt meets Thorsten Leibenath, basketball expert and sports director of ratiopharm Ulm, the 2023 German champions. Backstage at the ratiopharm Ulm vs Vechta Basketball Bundesliga game.

I have spent two days in Ulm and was pleasantly surprised by this beautiful city on the Danube.

On Saturday evening, at the invitation of sports director Thorsten Leibenath, “Matchday” between ratiopharm Ulm and Vechta. An energetic game that was extremely exciting. And we were offered a lot in the sold-out arena, in addition to great seats in the business area, fine catering in the lounge and then two and a half hours of excitement on the court. We even got to experience five minutes of overtime, which is rare in basketball.

Thorsten Leibenath is the architect of ratiopharm Ulm’s 2023 champion team.

Sunday was a leisurely day in Ulm with an extensive breakfast and then a 10km walk to discover the city. And what a beautiful city Ulm is, with the cathedral, the Seelengraben, the old town and the lovely cafés.

And this morning we visited the campus of ratiopharm Ulm, the 2023 German basketball champions. It was a real experience to visit such a highly professional high-performance center with the adjoining OrangeCampus, a top modern Conference Center with various conference rooms, perfect for meetings with a supporting program.

And we were also allowed to shoot a few baskets….

Sports director Thorsten Leibenath took a lot of time to show us around the training halls and the Orange Campus. A real WOW experience. You can also create an excellent supporting program for the meetings in Ulm, including the basketball players.
basketball players included.

And Thorsten Leibenath gives excellent talks on the topics:

  • Encouraging and empowering people – that is leadership.
  • Handing over responsibility: involving the team in decisions on success and failure
  • Guard rails in communication: Open and value-free communication with respect and style
  • Stress situations and pressure to act: the parallels between professional sport and everyday business life

We at Premium Speakers are very pleased to have Thorsten Leibenath, an absolute basketball pro, as a speaker who inspires our customers with his know-how and gives strong presentations and keynotes.
