Max Maendler

The 2 Minute Interview

Max is the founder of Lehrerkolleg, the network for dedicated teachers. So, while many are complaining about education systems, Max creates long-term solutions to improve the curriculum and learning environment of German schools. Three thumbs up! In addition, Max is also Chapter President and European Chairman of EO Entrepreneurs’ Organization. That is how we met. Last week and under the aegis of Max, we organized the 4-day conference EO Unlimited. Another thumbs up for the wonderful collaboration! At the moment, Max and his family are living in the middle of a building site – Max will tell you himself how that happened. And yes, there are actually cool guys that are really into math. Q.E.D.
