When Karl proclaimed himself a living experiment in creative thinking, it set off a hilarious hike straight through his own assumptions, procrastination and underused potential.
What started as a personal challenge became a calling to free others from limiting beliefs and unintentional self-sabotage.
That is why Karl's speeches are interactive experiences where participants come out different than they started. He turns credes like connection, trust and collaboration into inspiring concretes.
Which he does in his native Flemish tongue or
a surprising and inexplicable near-native British accent.

Your audience deserves a message they can relate to. Your message deserves an audience that can relay it. Where they meet, is where we make the magic happen.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
I worked with Karl on what started out as a motivational speech request but turned into something so much more. In just a short about of time, Karl was able to capture the essence of what it means to think creatively and inspire the group. He was a pleasure to work with and was generous with his time.
