Marc Wallert
Live on Stage

When Marc speaks, you can hear the famous "pin drop". He empathizes with his guests and speaks from the soul. It's not about a perfectly staged fireworks display of rehearsed punchlines. The magic happens in the quiet moments, in the pauses, when he thinks out loud.

The atmosphere in the room is often "crackling with tension". The speech gets under the skin. But laughter is also allowed – and it happens. Because the joint keynote journey has a "happy ending" and leaves the audience positively tuned for the following program.

A special highlight is the one-on-one exchange at the book table. Here Marc signs his bestseller "Stark durch Krisen," with a personal dedication on request. Most organizers therefore choose the "Book-Bundle" in addition and give their guests a lasting memory of the event.

Strength Through Crises:
The Art of Not Losing Your Head

The world has become a jungle, uncertain and unpredictable. Continuous crises – climate, Corona, war, AI, ... – one can lose one's head!

  • Can I keep a cool head despite existential uncertainty?
  • How do I (or the team) remain strong under extreme stress?
  • Could I even emerge stronger from such a situation?

Marc Wallert has found answers to these questions – in the jungle of all places! As a hostage, he faced surprisingly similar challenges as many people and companies face today. Therefore, he transfers his survival strategies to the world of his guests.

The keynote bestseller – a captivating journey with a "happy end"!

Leadership: What We Learn About Leadership from a Kidnapping

People want to control their lives, preferably the whole world. Leading yourself and others is important and provides security. Paradoxically, what leadership really means can also and especially be experienced through unguidance.

  • How to move from inner leadership to external leadership.
  • When positive visions take effect and when they become dangerous.
  • Why people become a team not in spite of, but through conflicts.
  • Why teams in the jungle need leadership, but not a boss.

In his speech, Marc combines his leadership experience from 20 years of managerial career with his kidnapping experience from 20 weeks of captivity.

A different journey through the business jungle – not just for managers!





Strength Through Crises:
Developing Resilience

It is not the Question, if a crisis will come, but when. Setbacks are part of life, whether professional or personal, health-related or financial. We cannot completely prevent them. However, we can learn to deal with them better. Here, the inner strength called "resilience" helps. The good news: Resilience can be trained!

In his speech, Marc Wallert shares the protective factors that helped him survive his kidnapping in the jungle unscathed. But he only became a hero years later. His burnout taught him: There's more to life than just the principle of bouncing back to transform crises into opportunities. You can learn how to develop your resilience in this speech – step by step.

Marc loves the personal exchange at eye level with his guests. After his presentation, all questions are welcome. For many guests - and also for Marc - the open exchange is a highlight in itself. It is not uncommon for a certain magic to be created in the room, which encourages a particularly open exchange afterwards.

Interaction with the audience thrives on spontaneous impulses and good preparation. That's why we leave nothing to chance and coordinate the framework and moderation in advance. To this end, we have compiled our tried-and-tested tips for you in our Event Toolbox.
