“Your life is what you choose it to be. Reflecting this philosophy, Stefan provides an excellent reminder that anything is possible when you choose to put your soul into it and refuse to fail.”

- Howard Breen, CEO MacLaren McCann

“I followed Stefan’s blog during his journey across the Gobi and was truly inspired on a daily basis by reading what he was going through. His presentation on his emotional and physical journey, will captivate your imagination and touch your spirit. Perhaps it will even ignite an inner flame to accomplish the impossible. Stefan’s presentation illustrates what humans are capable of achieving and it is a great vehicle to motivate individuals and teams.”

- Sandra Hokansson, President and Country Manager Adecco

“The messages I took away were: The easier way of accomplishing something may not always be the best way. Team work is essential for success. The reward that we get from working hard to achieve our dreams is well worth any inconveniences we may encounter to reach our goals in life. You won’t know what your full capability will be if you don’t try.”
