It is “SPIEGEL Bestseller Business”, “Handelsblatt Bestseller”, “Manager Magazine Bestseller” and “Top 10 Audiobook of the Year” on Audible, among others. With his current book “The End of Stupid Work”, he brings creativity, courage and the “just do it” spirit of startups

With his bestseller “The 4-Hour Startup”, Felix Plötz has already shown tens of thousands of people how they can realize their own ideas as normal employees in addition to their jobs.

Now he’s going one step further: he’s bringing exactly this “just do it” spirit of startups back to large companies and the established economy.

Digitalization and ever-accelerating change are changing our working world, but they also bring enormous opportunities: if more and more routine work is taken over by machines and algorithms in the future, this does not mean the end of work, but the beginning of a new era: “smart companies” and their entrepreneurially minded employees.

Smart companies have understood that self-reliant, solution-oriented, committed employees are the decisive success factor for the markets of tomorrow.

What is needed on the way there, however, is the courage to question oneself – one’s old business models, one’s leadership methods and also one’s own way of thinking as an employee and manager.

This book shows how to do it.

Recognizing Change – Shaping the Future

When companies need to reposition themselves for the future or even reduce costs, managers and employees often come under pressure. After all, restructuring can trigger uncertainty, fear and rejection in the company. The biggest challenge: to get your employees on board, to motivate them – and even to get them excited about change! Keynote speaker Felix Plötz creates clarity, points out opportunities and encourages people to shape the future. It shows the “doer potential” in each of us, and why we need to act now to benefit from change.

The keynote lecture “Change or Opportunity” is ideal for companies that want to react to changing economic conditions and at the same time invest in their own future. A lecture for more efficiency, profitability and courage in the long term – for the future of your company.


More entrepreneurship for employees (and managers)

We live in times of upheaval, because digitalization is causing fierce cut-throat competition in many markets. Quality alone is no longer enough to secure a leading position in the market in the long term.

The decisive success factors for the markets of tomorrow are agility, consistent customer orientation and, above all, the ability to courageously think outside the box again and again!

This lecture by keynote speaker Felix Plötz is for people who want to make a difference. Those who are willing to take responsibility – for their own lives and for their company.

The keynote speech is a passionate, motivating plea for more commitment, courage and the desire to create something extraordinary.


A clear guide on what to do now and what new attitude we urgently need

Everyone is talking about digitalization, and most companies are now aware that there is an existential need for action.

Unfortunately, some have already overshot the mark: their employees can hardly hear the topic anymore. Unfortunately, knowledge alone is not enough.

We also have to actively implement it – at all levels of the company.

This keynote lecture therefore takes a different path than usual digitization lectures. Instead of buzzwords, he shows a realistic way.

Because digitalization is not rocket science, but can be implemented in every company.

What is needed is the courage to question oneself – one’s business models, one’s way of thinking and, above all, one’s inner attitude.

In his presentation, Felix Plötz will show concrete instructions for managers and employees to successfully master digitalization in their own companies.

As a keynote speaker for digitalization, he gives his audience actionable impulses, inspiration and motivation – for entrepreneurial success in the markets of tomorrow. Guaranteed 100% bullshit bingo free.

Felix Plötz is rightly regarded as the shooting star of the speaker scene. A sensational presentation! 1,500 people in the sold-out Colosseum Theater were completely enthralled.

Mr. Plötz’s contribution provided an excellent start to the discussion on the topic of digitalization. In particular, his broad experience in combination with the humorously presented examples contributed to this. ‘Just Do It’ – that was very well received!
