Once Again Thank You so much for such an interesting workshop!
The event was a great success and everyone thoroughly enjoyed Wolfgang’s performance!
I attended the PA Road Show at Emperors Convention Centre yesterday. I have heard many motivational speakers in my life, but what you have done and meant for me yesterday I cannot describe in words. I just want to say thank you.. thank you… thank you!!!!
Vielen Dank für Deine einmalige Entertainment. Wir alle bei Rennies Travel und unsere Kunden sind nur am schwärmen seid Du hier warst. Deine positive Ausstrahlung ist einfach ‘amazing’
The larger than life persona that is Wolfgang Riebe sat at my table and engaged with everyone around him. He then took to the stage and captivated the convention delegates for an hour in a way I have NEVER SEEN BEFORE !!??!! The use of humour, gesture, body language, magic and message was simply first class!
My personal thanks for your talk to the Toastmasters Conference. I don’t know how you do it, you packed so much fun, wisdom, advice and warmth into the time you spoke to us. I also want to pass on the thanks of the Toastmasters who attended, and to tell you that your speech was the highlight.
Many, many positives coming in. Thanks so much for your help and involvement once more.
Von der ersten Sekunde haben Sie mich persönlich mitgerissen, viele neue Möglichkeiten und Denkweisen aufgeschlossen und einfach nur einen genialen Vortrag gehalten.
It was an honour and a pleasure. All our common efforts will clearly be reaping fruits as it is the beginning of a fruitful collaboration I’m sure.
Everyone enjoyed it and we just got “excellent” feedback on the evaluation forms on you.
Baie dankie vir jou reuse aandeel in die sukses van Great Escape V. Jou sessie het die movers en shakers geinspireer en gemotiveer. Baie dankie vir al die ure en moeite wat daarmee gepaard gegaan het.
You are always so good with the way you handle an audience! Always a great mix of fun, laughter but also goosebump moments.
Thanks to you the conference was a huge success. You really are excellent and we love working with you!
The conference exceeded my expectations & I received great feedback from everyone. I don’t think it would have been such a success without you, I look forward to future bookings with you.
You were absolutely stunning and wonderful. I love you for giving your best. Thank you!
Just to say you were on fire Saturday man, I obviously did know how good you are but you were great on Saturday hey, congrats!
Thank you for attending and hosting our awards dinner last week. The night was a big success and enjoyed by all thanks to your humour and professional MC skills!
I felt that the message you brought across went seamlessly into the message we, as Build it were trying to convey to our retailers so thank you for that and all the inspiring encouragement!
Inspirational as always!
His energy in the room was quite contagious – we all caught it as we sat upright, paying full attention to him, with our lips often breaking out into smiles.
I have had the pleasure of working alongside Wolfgang in the UK, The Netherlands and Southern Africa. Audiences are quite simply wowed into his magical ability to entertain, inspire and laugh. I have been lucky to see the comedic and magic vault at Wolfgang’s HQ and it is safe to say no stone is left unturned as he strives to create the very best experiences for his audiences. You will never meet a more genuinely nice guy and if you are looking for a speaker to make your event a magical success Wolfgang Riebe is a natural choice.
It was my pleasure having you in our annual kickoff meeting in Teneriffe. Your presence was remarkable and added a lot to us.
Thanks very much once again for making yourself available and for doing such an awesome job as always.
The way you chaired the event and your ability to drive the sessions was just OUT OF THIS WORLD. You were excellent and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
Super gifted and funny Motivational Magician who travels the entire world doing shows – unusually funny German!
It was really great to see and work with you again. The feedback has been fabulous!
You managed to take something that is usually an event and turn it into an experience!
Groooooootste dankie vir al jou sessies – waardeur dit baie! Sien jou binnekort vir nog sessies.
Thank you so very much for making our AGM the best ever. I have had nothing but excellent feedback. It was said that this was one of the best events we have had in a long time!
Thank you, we all had a great time – all feedback is positive.
Thank you for making our Gala Awards evening the huge success that it was! Your content was original and presented in a simple yet powerful way. A clever, fresh approach. Your MC, entertainment and speaking skills are exceptional and we look forward to booking you for future events!
You really did go the extra mile and, honestly, did add magic (excuse the pun) to the evening!! The wonderful part of this journey, is the incredible people I can now call friends!
First of all I want to say THANK YOU!!!! The event was a huge success and all the planning went extremely well. We have had so much positive feedback! Lots of raves for you and how you kept the audience captivated.
