About Steffi Jones

Steffi Jones is the most successful and best-known German female footballer and has achieved what only very few athletes manage: a career after a career.
Steffi Jones polarised with her retirement and her public and sharp criticism of the DFB. Criticism that was appropriate, but which no one dared to say out loud. The focus was on the lack of gender equality at the association and how it dealt with it. Steffi Jones said in interviews that she would rule out a return to the DFB as long as the same men were sitting there. Courageous words that had a signalling effect.
Steffi Jones is clearly more than a footballer and coach. She is a role model. Like no other, she shows that it is possible to go one's own way in a male domain.
In her talks and lectures, Steffi Jones talks about how she learned teamwork and self-confidence in sport and how she passes these qualities on to the next generation of athletes. Many characteristics from the sports world can be transferred one-to-one to the business world, so she also talks about what leadership means to her, how much discipline a career needs and how to motivate oneself again after defeats.
