A Keynote on Goal Setting for Incredible Results

“Maybe we could, someday…” or “We should do it, but…” are two phrases often said; yet for so many, everything remains the same. Our dreams and desires can sometimes seem like unachievable targets.

Humorous travel speaker, award-winning author, and German-native, Michael Wigge, easily transforms his visions into reality. Internationally recognized for his TV shows and books, Wigge traveled without a single penny to the end of the world; a total of 25,000 miles from Europe to Antarctica.

Each day on the road, Michael came up with creative solutions to create opportunities for cost-free food, accommodations, and transportation. He worked as a butler for an ambassador in Panama, couch surfed in the homes of strangers, and for a small fee performed with hand puppets or offered amusing services, such as pillow fighting and being a human bench.

Tonight Show guest, humorist, and corporate speaker, Michael Wigge, entertains audiences with his outrageous and incredible stories. He shows that it can be fun to strive for challenging goals. The sky is the limit—and even that can be reached! Michael teaches that with an open mind for new adventures, incredible outcomes will result. He demonstrates that innovative thinking, relentless positivity, and leveraging unique competitive advantages will enrich your life.

No Money

Is it worth the struggle?

Courage and persistence are required to bring your dreams to life, as well as being unconventional and sometimes even a little crazy. As an expert in applied creativity—and in a humorous, yet practical way—Michael Wigge shows that the pay off for acting on a vision can be enormous. His investment for another breath-taking rollercoaster ride around the world – ′How to Barter for Paradise′, was just an apple. After making spectacular deals all over the planet, he finally made his dream of a house in Hawaii come true.

Wigge believes to achieve any goal you must have the right mental structures as a foundation. Wigge learned as an MTV reporter to think laterally in order to access extraordinary opportunities: He was ultimately able to make a celebrated appearance with Katy Perry on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Michael is convinced that everybody can turn their wishes into reality even if at first they seem impossible. Drawing from his proven track record, he explains his experiences and philosophies in this hilarious keynote speech, and applies his unique approach to everyday life. The speech rings true to Michael’s motto: “Everything is possible!”
