Interview with Alex T. Steffen:

1. What are the core subjects of your keynote speeches?

Alex T. Steffen:

My lecture topics are:

  • Adaptive Intelligence (AQ)
  • What skills do leaders need in the future
  • New Work & future of work
  • Change-Management
  • Agility
  • Disruption
  • Intrapreneurship

2. Which audience or which branch do you reach with your speech?

Alex T. Steffen:

These are mainly:

  • Top executives
  • Top and mid level managers
  • Business leaders
  • HR professionals
  • Transformation professionals
  • Company employees

3. Are you a PREMIUM SPEAKER? Where do you get your insights from?

Alex T. Steffen:

With ten years of experience as a keynote speaker, I have now inspired tens of thousands of executives and employees from the world’s leading companies on many hundreds of stages – in German, English and Spanish.

I was invited to give a TEDx talk at the world-famous Bilbao Concert Hall, and I train speakers in their performance.

Communication is in my DNA. My lectures are not only based on training in didactics and theater studies, but also follow the LDX method, which leads to tangible content and enthusiastic audiences.

I live on stage and tailor each presentation to the custom wishes of the client.

4. What will be in the future? Does «time» play an important role in your work?

Alex T. Steffen:

Contrary to how we often perceive the future, it always comes in waves. New opportunities follow crises. Innovation conquers consistency. Adaptive Intelligence (AQ) not only gives us a reassuring helicopter view, but also the mental resilience to deal with short-term challenges and to formulate a new strategy with a cool head and to motivate people to try something new.

“Opportunities are not seen with the eyes, they are seen with the mind.”

5. Tell us your life motto? What do you want to give your listeners to take with them?

Alex T. Steffen:

Joyfully diligent!
