Markus Obenauf is a leading expert in change management and top performance. After over two decades as a manager, in positions which even included CEO, he has experienced all the highs and lows of change processes. He knows the perils a change can bring to performance. But he also knows what to do to ensure an organisation returns to its high level of performance after the change. It is for this very reason that he has been called in by both SMEs and international groups and institutions to assist with difficult change projects as a specialist. He holds several professorships at the reputable Vienna University of Economics and Business, running change-management, leadership and top-performance seminars and presentations around the world. He highlights completely new perspectives, summarises facts with razor-sharp analyses, and delivers feasible solutions. Audiences value his humour and plain, raw openness. Markus Obenauf is quickly able to reach out to people, and thrill and inspire them.
