One second, one wrong decision while hiking. Neck fracture. Diagnosis: cervical vertebrae cross-section. 95% of the muscles are paralyzed, forever. The most radical change ever. Sebastian Wächter overcomes this blow of fate. He becomes a Bundesliga wheelchair rugby player, earns his master's degree in business mathematics and works as a stock analyst. Sebastian Wächter not only talks about change, but has experienced and mastered it himself. He now helps many companies get their change processes rolling and sets the best example. When it comes to the topic of diversity, Sebastian chats from the inside as a long-time, severely disabled employee. In the area of team building, he brilliantly contributes his extraordinary experiences as a wheelchair rugby player. Despite all the uncertainties, Sebastian encourages people to take the reins of the business into their own hands and shape the future.
