With his dual identities as doctor and explorer, Bertrand Piccard has become highly sought after throughout the world as a speaker. Large companies wishing to generate customer loyalty or motivate their managers and employees find much of interest in his vision, career, and family history combining science with human values. But the Secretary General of the UN, the Sheikh of Abu Dhabi and leaders of several other countries also came under the spell of his personality, inviting him to open international forums, notably on energy policy and sustainable development.

Bertrand is fully aware that his audiences are not there to listen to an adventure story, but rather to tap into his experiences and draw inspiration from them for their own professional and personal lives. He uses his aeronautical expeditions as a backdrop to develop his concepts of psychology for living and human communication. Within this framework, he has inspired audiences at hundreds of public and private events, speaking on the pioneering spirit, motivation, and team-work, as well as how to deal with stress, uncertainty and crisis situations. At the request of some audiences, he also covers medical topics such as the use of hypnosis and self-hypnosis.

«The pioneering spirit is less about thinking up new ideas, as ridding ourselves of dogmas and habits that hold us captive in old ways of thinking and acting.»

Bertrand Piccard

«Changing our psychological and philosophical altitude, gaining height metaphorically so as to use our skills and inner resources to best effect and adjust ourselves to the unpredictability of existence.»

Bertrand Piccard
