  • What teambuilding means in the new times
BastianSchweinsteiger is not just a household name for soccer fans. Iconic are the images of one of his greatest games, the 2014 World Cup final at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro against Argentina, when, bleeding after several fouls, he continues to direct the team, whips it forward and the national team brings the World Cup trophy to Germany - the first time since 1990.

The victory marks a sporting highlight of a long career in which Bastian Schweinsteiger has left his mark on his longtime club FC Bayern Munich as well as the German national soccer team, in addition to his other stints at Manchester United and Chicago Fire FC. Playing on Bundesliga turf for the first time at the tender age of 18, the exceptional athlete won the German championship eight times with FC Bayern Munich and the historic triple of championship, DFB Cup and Champions League with the team in 2013, among other achievements.

Over the course of his career, Schweinsteiger quickly matures into a leader - both on and off the pitch. In the important games, he pulls his teammates along and leads them to success. Even criticism during difficult phases of his career doesn't throw Schweinsteiger off his stride. On stage at the International Foodservice Forum, he reveals what really matters.
