Outstanding performance calls for special acknowledgement. This is why we started to present our speakers with awards in 2010 and by now, these prizes are quite sought-after.
At the end of the year, a panel of 5 experts determines the awardees of the various categories. Only one nomination per category, year and speaker is permitted and furthermore, a speaker can only be presented with the award for a specific category once. Naturally, our speakers are clearly proud if they receive such honours.
Here, we present the best speakers of last year – but looking at last year’s awardees is worth it, too!
The award for "Best Brand " went to Steve Kroeger for his consistent, harmonious clear and well thought appearance as a personal brand. The motivational speaker, mountaineer and author conveys in his lectures how to not only climb the highest peaks with motivation and success orientation , but also describes how to master the challenges in business and everyday life with ease. Whether in his live webinar called “the motivational alarm clock”, in the 7 SUMMITS® Supporterclub or with his regular reminders to not forget the lightness of being - Steve Kroeger knows how to attract, inspire and entrain people.
