Awardees 2019

All award winners

Outstanding performances demand special acknowledgement. This is why we started to grant our - meanwhile highly coveted - speaker’s awards in 2010.

At the end of the year, a jury of five experts now always determines the awardees in a range of various categories. Only one nomination in one particular category per year and speaker is permitted. Furthermore, a speaker can receive the award in a particular category only once. Our speakers burst with pride when they are given this special recognition, obviously.

Here, you see the best speakers of last year. However, their predecessors are certainly worth a look, too!

With his online program and social media channels, he has an indescribable number of followers on the subject of healthy eating. But not only his statements, his website, his books and his online marketing deserve the title Best Brand, but also himself. With his vitality and health, he radiates in every fibre of his body how healthy living, vitality and performance can be so easy.

After Cornelius “Coni” Deisler inspired the Global Topspeaker team several times at different events, nothing was more obvious than to welcome him as a Global Topspeaker. Conny holds his speeches exclusively in verse form and develops an individual presentation for each customer by referring to the company, the employees or even to anniversaries to be honoured.

He has redefined the term motivation! Hardly any other speaker manages to carry his audience away after a short time, to shake them up and above all to motivate them in the long run. With his project to fill the Porsche Arena next year, he demonstrates courage, stamina and the will to achieve goals. It is precisely this will to achieve goals that he gives the audience in his interactive lectures and ensures a long-lasting effect. Having met many world stars, Norman Gräter tells unique, touching, motivating and sometimes thought-provoking stories. And it is this very mixture of interaction and content combined with an incredible stage presence that makes him the best performer.
