From a film gang to a film agency with 45 employees

Duration: 15-45 min | Target group: self-employed, doers, management, executives, students, start-ups, motivational seekers

"No, I'm not the trainee!" Leipzig's most successful young entrepreneur in 2018 had to repeat this sentence almost as often as the "Action!" on the film set. When Florian Arndt made his first film at the age of 11, nobody could have guessed what would follow. At just 31 years old, his company Sons of Motion Pictures has already won 60 film awards. Today, "the Sons" produce for Mittelstand, DAX & Hollywood. His story tells of personal #Focus, #MaximumPerformance and #EntrepreneurialSpirit in its purest form. In the best infotainment, there is motivation, self-irony and learning for everyone.

More than 1.6 billion people use it, including one in four Germans, and the number is growing every day: TikTok. 51% of users are between 30 and 50 years old - not just for young people. You can find your target group by age, gender, postcode, language and interest, and it's currently cheaper than anywhere else: 0.07 cents per applicant. But what do successful TikTok campaigns look like and how do I get 50 applications for software development, for example? Director & Managing Director Florian Arndt humorously presents real-life business cases. We also take a look at the other 20 platforms on which you can place recruiting films. Spoiler: The evergreens YouTube and LinkedIn are still going strong, and in some cases even the good old analogue cinema is still useful.

Everybody is a brand

Duration: 30-60 min. | Target group: Executives, marketing and communication departments, management, doers, start-ups, self-employed.

There are people who leave a lasting, positive impression in our lives and then there are people.... ah forgotten again. Companies design strategies and positioning for their brand. But what do the company representatives do, who represent them to the outside world? People buy from people. Not only people in individual companies depend on representing a strong brand in everyday life. Everyone sells themselves and their concerns always and everywhere, even in their private lives. Why some can do this better than others and why it is not as subjective as we think, we investigate and discover the USP Persona and burning business cards.

Keynote Speaker Artificial Intelligence | Florian Arndt

Florian Arndt - Top 3 Keynote Speaker for Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Germany, Film, Marketing, Recruiting, Entrepreneurship & Leadership

Florian Arndt here, but the press just calls me the AI Pope. In real life, I'm a director & managing director and my daily business is film magic, marketing tricks, recruiting units, business insights and the art of team leadership. "The ultimate disaster film" - the title for my first short film at the age of 11 couldn't have been more fitting. This was followed by the premiere of my embarrassing 90-minute feature film in front of 100 viewers and a further 300 amateur films up until my 18th birthday, when I accidentally won 25 film awards worldwide and the rating "particularly valuable" with my documentary debut "Test Driver".

Named "Germany's best up-and-coming director 2012" by the German Youth Video Award, I founded the film agency Sons of Motion Pictures GmbH in Leipzig, later with a second office in Coburg, to coincide with Valentine's Day 2014.

My film family now has 45 permanent employees on 700 m² with 60 film awards. The SONS shoot commercials, documentaries, series and animated films worldwide for well-known clients such as Warner Bros, Microsoft, Daimler, Rotkäppchen-Mumm, RB Leipzig, Lufthansa, Telekom, BMW and Schloss Einstein (KIKA).

Born in 1992 and with a high school diploma and seahorse, "Der Mittelstand" (BVMW) appointed me as Germany's youngest Senator h.c. of Germany. Today, I have been sharing this unconventionally gained experience as a professional infotainment speaker for 15 years with over 500 keynotes. For example, I advised the Chancellery on the topic of AI. He can also be heard on our 500,000 subscriber podcast "Feuer & Flamme Mindset" with many well-known personalities. According to Startup Creator, he is one of the top 3 AI keynote speakers in Germany.

This is my story: From behind the scenes to the stage

I'm known as the man with 45 employees, 55 film awards and 100 bow ties. And that's how I became that man:

A film producer in his infancy

At the tender age of 11, I laid the foundation with my cinematic debut "The Ultimate Disaster Film" and from then on it was all upwards - shaky camera and shaky knees or not.
Between improvised stages and my first tentative steps in the film world, I spun a network of art and culture professionals - a network that developed into a creative team over time.

Time for the big stage

My documentary debut, The Test Driver, which won 25 awards, marked the end of my time as an experimental youth and ushered in the transition to the world of big business. I proudly wear the title of winner of the German Youth Video Award "Germany's Best Young Director 2012". Instead of deciding to study, I then consciously took the plunge into the real world of film - without water wings, but with a large portion of seahorse courage.

From passion to vocation

Valentine's Day in 2014 had a very special meaning for me - because I used this day to finally give my passion a permanent place as a vocation. Sons Of Motion Pictures GmbH was born, with offices in Leipzig and Coburg. With tireless dedication, we have produced commercials, documentaries and animated films, also for renowned companies such as:

  • Warner Bros.
  • Microsoft
  • Daimler
  • Rotkäppchen-Mumm
  • RB Leipzig 
  • Lufthansa
  • Telekom
  • Siemens
  • BMW
  • A&O Hotels
  • Immowelt
  • KIKA

In the process, our close-knit film family has grown from 45 permanent employees who are now adults. Together we have won a proud 55 film awards and turn our creative visions into moving images.

In 2019, I even received the extraordinary honour of being appointed to the BVMW's Federal Business Senate as Germany's youngest senator.

Upgrade my vocation

The years as CEO have shown me how valuable it is to bundle know-how and passion and make them accessible to others. That's how I found my second vocation: Keynote Speaker. 

With a twinkle in my eye and a clear focus on the essentials, I now want to use my expertise to inspire those who are looking for new horizons - be it in marketing, recruiting or leadership. With over 15 years of experience in entrepreneurship and no less than 400 keynotes under my belt, I have a lot to offer.

And what about the flies? That's my trademark! Because just as extraordinary as my keynotes is my clothing style, which underlines my personality and is an extension of my innovative approaches.

By the way: Besides my stage performances, I am active on LinkedIn and share my thoughts and experiences online. Furthermore, together with Nora Lob, I am represented on the podcast Feuer&Flamme, which has already been subscribed to by over 500,000 people. Feel free to listen in!

What I do: Humour Speaker for Artificial Intelligence, Leadership and much more

When it comes to my keynotes, I'm a fan of honesty, wit and, above all, images that stay in your head longer than the gum on the street. Infotainment is my hobbyhorse. I bring information and entertainment together as if they were best buddies.

So, if you are ready for a mix of expertise, entertainment and a good pinch of unconventional spirit, let's rock the stage together and shake up the business!

What's on my agenda: Keynotes that inspire

I offer a diverse range of topics that will turn your perspectives on their head. From entertaining business comedy to modernising marketing strategies through AI and TikTok, my keynotes offer knowledge, humour and practical insights for a successful future:

  • Explore the secrets of AI for effective recruiting and marketing.
  • Master the use of moving image strategies in the age of TikTok.
  • Discover new ways to lead your team.
  • Build your personal brand.
  • Learn how to attract and retain customers for the long term.

My programmes are a dynamic mix of expertise, entertainment and inspiration. Together we rock the stage and give your business fresh impetus and new heights.

A little side note: Many of my keynote topics can also be experienced in the form of more comprehensive workshops. If you are interested, don't hesitate to make an enquiry.

What I offer: Infotainment

My offer is as multifaceted as a dazzling rainbow - and I design my events to be just as diverse and colourful! But one thing is always at the centre: conveying keynotes. This is where my lifeblood flows, this is where the focus comes into sharp focus. But don't worry: there are no dry figures and endless monologues with me. Instead, you can expect energy, wit and a good pinch of infotainment. Because I am firmly convinced that knowledge is best absorbed when it is communicated in an entertaining way.

You can count on that with me:

  • Experience: Over 15 years as a CEO and more than 400 keynotes have given me valuable insights into the art of presentation.
  • Humour: I bring wit and entertainment to every keynote and make sure your audience laughs and learns.
  • Infotainment: A unique blend of information and entertainment to convey knowledge in an enjoyable way.
  • Adaptability: I adapt my keynotes to your industry and the needs of your audience, as well as to the theme of the event.
  • Audio-visual elements: cakes, films and confetti - I use visual and sensual elements to bring my keynotes to life.
  • Inspiration: My stories from entrepreneurship and the film world will inspire you to explore new horizons.
  • Practical insights: My keynotes are not only inspiring, but also offer practical tips and insights that you can implement directly.
  • Flexibility: No matter when and where - I am active throughout the German-speaking world.
  • Personal contact: I am available for personal discussions and individual planning of your keynote event.
