How should I describe him, this Reinhold Karner? He has so many facets. He is a doer. What he takes in hand works. His Semiramis1 was already better in 2005 than SAP is today2. He is an entrepreneur. His advice is worth its weight in gold. He is antifragile. Nassim Nicholas Taleb3 would only need an hour, and they would be friends. Reinhold Karner is convincing and inspires. He has the rare gift of quickly seeing through complex contexts. He recognises trends; he senses impending danger, even highly improbable events. He is an excellent networker. He likes to give; he gives openly and honestly. He loves the big stage. He likes exquisite glasses and ties. He values nature. He is concerned about climate change. He doesn't like nuclear power. He is a global citizen and down-to-earth at the same time. Actually, he is indescribable.
