Dr. Stefan Frädrich

Best Brand

Everybody knows it and everybody had to fight it before: one's weaker self. With his cartoon character Günther, a little dog that stands for all one's inner obstacles, Global Top Speaker Dr. Stefan Frädrich gave it a face and a name! The placid little doggie became Frädrich's brand and since then has been causing a revolution in self-motiviation and overcoming one's weaker self on many stages and in numerous publications as well. In 2011, Dr. Stefan Frädrich was rewarded for this accomplishment and was presented with the Global Top Speaker's Award in the category "Best Brand".
