Marc Wallert knows what he is talking about.

Marc survived 140 days as a hostage in the Philippine jungle. Today, he "kidnaps" people on a unique lecture tour that gets under their skin and gives them courage.

In the jungle, you and your guests will master incredible challenges and experience the mental power called resilience. A special highlight for events whose guests expect positive impulses.

Incidentally, Marc's virtual presentations are just as lively as his stage appearances. Thanks to modern studio technology, you can immerse yourself in the jungle alongside him. Almost like in the movies, only live and interactive.

Marc's keynote is much more than just a talk about resilience. It is a gripping experience that touches people and inspires them for their everyday lives.

Do You Know This?

Trapped in a Perpetual Crisis

Climate, Corona, War, Artificial Intelligence, Inflation, Energy, Supply Chains, Skilled Labor Shortage, ...
What else, please?

Crises are the new "normal". They overlap, and we talk about a "polycrisis". The changes come so suddenly and are so drastic that some threaten to lose their heads. Here helps ResilienceIt is the answer to perhaps the greatest mental challenge of the future.

How can one remain mentally strong in difficult times and even grow from crises?

Fear of the Future | Stress from Change

You and your team are facing major challenges or are already in the midst of the change process. Employees feel stressed and insecure. Many long for the "good old days" instead of bravely moving towards the future. Somehow the new vision is communicated a lot, but little lived. Now it is time for leaders to reach their teams not only in the head but also in the heart. 

How do I mobilize people for a great vision?

Keynotes - Much WOW, Little HOW

Who isn't familiar with the boring frontal presentations in a meeting room atmosphere? In contrast, keynotes on the big stage are usually professionally pointed and often elicit enthusiasm in the audience – WOW! But back in the office, the highlight from the keynote event quickly fades into the reality of everyday life. What's missing here is the "HOW".

How do I transfer what I've heard into my daily life?

Keynote Speaker Cancels - What Now?

A nightmare for event organizers. The event is planned for months and prepared with passion. As a highlight, a unique speaker with a promising keynote is booked and widely announced. The guests are highly anticipative. Then, shortly before the start, the bad news: the speaker cancels! Guests disappointed, host stressed. And now?

What can I do to successfully carry out my event even without the speaker?
