Axel Hesse

Keynote Speaker, Motivator, Serial Entrepreneur, Business Coach

Axel is Axel

no matter what

He is always authentic and straightforward. Besides corporates and "German Mittelstand" he is consulting and mentoring startups and young entrepreneurs. He speaks his mind and helps to think outside the box.



Since 20 years Axel Hesse is a successful serial entrepreneur. he has a large expertise in brand-building, e-commerce, digitalization and social media. axel's way to express himself inspires his friends and business partners around the world.

Traditional business models will be disrupted by the silicon valley giants or innovative young startups. Not tomorrow - right now! Beating around the bush is not helpful - you have to tell the truth! I just convince people to think more in a creative way and to execute faster. The future starts now!
