Ulrich Hemel

A theologian, philosopher, thinker and entrepreneur, Ulrich is unmatched in his versatility. As a lecturer and professor at the University of Regensburg, Ulrich explored the idea of religious education in families and while working as translator and interpreter, developed his undying passion for languages. He then worked in the corporate field as a top consultant for many years before founding his own management consulting and investment firm. In his own words, the four pillars of his life are: philosophy, language, theology and business. Ulrich was Chairman of the Board of the Foundation Research Institute for Philosophy, Hanover and since 2004 he and his wife Lucia have set up and run a children’s home and foundation: “Children Without Borders”. Ever expanding on his devotion to social work, in 2009 Ulrich founded the “Institute for Social Strategy” in Germany, which devotes itself to the creation of a global civil society. He will be advising Fair Observer on our strategy of global outreach.
