Perfect to complement Marc's keynote: the book package.

Marc Wallert im Gespräch am Büchertisch

After his presentation, the audience usually heads straight to the "book table" to meet Marc in person, ask him questions, and pick up a signed copy of his book.

Some request a personal dedication for family members or colleagues to directly pass on the positive impact. Others take their book home to delve deeper into the content of the talk or to look up answers to any lingering questions.

Either way, the book ensures that your event will be remembered and talked about for a long time.

Review Stern

In “Strength Through Crises” Wallert not only tells his personal, gripping story of survival. Above all, it emphasizes the psychological knowledge of what keeps people going in difficult moments.

The book is very much worth reading because Wallert analyzes his findings based on resilience research and derives general advice from them.

Review branch management

A book that can help to reflect in times of crisis - and that at the same time provides entertainment.

Book review in 'Branch management - leading and selling'

The book as an event booster

“Strength through Crises” became a SPIEGEL bestseller and serves many as a “travel guide through the jungle of life.”

The book gives very personal insights and background information about Marc's kidnapping into the jungle. But it goes far beyond that. In the second part of his book, Marc shares what he learned from his burnout and how others can emerge stronger from such crises.

As part of the lecture, Marc shares some of his “jungle strategies” (approx. 4-8, depending on the organizers' expectations).
In the book, your guests will also receive additional resilience techniques for everyday life.

That's why most organizers book the bestseller package together with the keynote.

About the Book


In the year 2000, Marc Wallert, along with 20 other hostages, was kidnapped by terrorists and held captive in the Philippine jungle for 140 days. In this book, he recounts the survival strategies he employed and the lessons he learned from this harrowing experience. With brutal honesty, he also describes other life setbacks, including his burnout, underlining the fact that the strategies that helped him can also assist others in challenging times: the mental fortitude known as resilience. Resilience, though proven effective time and again, has seldom been discussed in such a riveting manner

In this book, he explains effective strategies for private and professional life, with which one can not only get through crises with strength but even grow from them.
