Leo Martin, born in 1976, studied criminology and worked for a leading German intelligence service for ten years. During this time, he exposed highly sensitive cases of organised crime, and was specifically assigned with recruiting and leading informants. As an expert in subconscious thought and behavioural patterns, he brought strangers to trust and share their most secret insider knowledge with him and collaborate with the service in the long term.
His book "Ich krieg dich! Menschen für sich gewinnen - Ein Ex-Agent verrät die besten Strategien" (I’ll get you! How to win over people – a former agent shares the best strategies) quickly became a SPIEGEL bestseller.
Leo Martin is currently a regular guest at the top events of leading companies with his lecture programme: "Geheimwaffen der Kommunikation: Sanfte Strategien mit durchschlagender Wirkung" (The secret weapons of communication: soft strategies with striking effects) and "Geheimwaffe Vertrauen: Die Kunst, Menschen an sich zu binden" (Secret weapon trust: the art of binding people to you).
