Sebastian Wächter not only talks about change, but has experienced and mastered it himself. In the meantime, he helps well-known small and medium-sized companies as well as international corporations to get their change processes rolling. He also supports companies in implementing change in the areas of diversity and motivation.Through his life story, he can authentically accompany people in change processes and also understands the emotional barriers on this path.

The complete cooperation was equally pleasant as uncomplicated and goal-oriented. The keynote struck a nerve, very good implementation of the briefing and high authenticity."
Dr. Jörg Ehmer, CEO, Apollo Optik

"Sebastian puts the usual 'stumbling blocks in change processes in relation to his personal experiences and shows approaches to solutions. In this way, he manages to make you feel caught but not reprimanded. In sum, the lecture is touching, encouraging and inspiring."
Alma Schroedter, Head of Sales Management, Versicherungskammer Bayern

"We were in an important internal change process at the time of the lecture and it was more than amazing how his experiences and approach could be transferred to our process. You could have heard a pin drop, so attentively and full of excitement we listened to him. Every single person benefited from it. We were thrilled."
Peter Bochnia, Sales Director, LVM Versicherung

"As the director of the training course "Professional Speaker GSA", I have not experienced anyone in recent years who captivates his  listeners like Sebastian, gives clear instructions for action and motivates people to achieve their goals again. He doesn't want pity, he wants to motivate. Because companies and their employees in particular can learn something from his mindset as a wheelchair user."
Markus Hofmann, Speaker of the Year 2017
