Patrick Hemminger

“The glass is always half full.”


Patrick Hemminger (1979) has spent his entire professional life working on what drives people. At the beginning, as a local journalist in Stuttgart and the surrounding area, he investigated the motivation of recreational shooters, provincial politicians and animal shelter managers. After studying oriental studies in Bamberg and Berlin, Cairo and Damascus, he spent several years reporting on the Middle East.

In Afghanistan, he drank tea with the head of the country’s only golf course. He couchsurfed his way for two months through Israel and the West Bank. In Egypt, he circled the pyramids at night on the back of a galloping horse – without being able to ride.

In 2011, he turned his back on the increasingly restless regions of the East and went to Munich to work at the Süddeutsche Zeitung, where he accompanied the development and expansion of their digital offering. In parallel, he discovered for himself the world of indulgence and began publishing in well-known newspapers and magazines about food and wine.

Patrick Hemminger mobilizes organizations by never tiring of asking “why”. In addition to his work as a consultant for Bridgebrain, he continues to work as a journalist, supporting several clients in their public relations work and giving wine seminars.
