Niels' world

Niels Pflaeging: Management exorcist, change curator, thought innovator, speaker, author, globally working advisor on leadership transformation. In this section, you can learn more about Niels´ curriculum, his books and his three major spheres of work.


Niels is something of a rare animal.

He combines two roles in his client work. Roles that are rather different from each other, and that are rarely found together, in one single professional. On one hand, he offers inspirational, thought-provoking, highly conceptual and entertaining impulses as a world-class speaker. On the other hand, he helps organizations internationally with triggering, mapping and leading profound and robust change initiatives as a highly effective advisor. Few people are capable of doing both, on the same high level of professionality.

Niels combines all of that with a literally boundary-less, world-wide scope and with speaking four of the world´s most important langages fluently. He has an international network of trusted partners and colleagues that he relies upon in all of his advisory work.
