Joschka Fischer    

Former Vice Chancellor & Foreign Minister of Germany; Former Leader of the German Green Party

Joschka Fischer is a former vice chancellor of Germany (1998-2005), as well as Germany's former foreign minister.

In the 1990s, Fischer led the German Green Party and was arguably the most popular politician in his nation. y uniting the various factions of the Green Party, Fischer’s leadership transformed it into a key political player, marking one of the most profound political accomplishments of his generation.

In his youth, Fischer was involved in militant leftist groups such as Putzgruppe and Revolutionärer Kampf (Revolutionary Struggle). However, in the German autumn of 1977, he was rattled by a series of left-wing terrorist attacks that led him to denounce violence as a manner of seeking political change.

While spearheading dialogue about the most urgent issues of our age, Fischer enlightens audiences with personal motivational anecdotes about applying diplomacy and championing leadership, negotiation and organizational renewal.
