Public Speaker

Generation Z (Digital Natives)

No matter where we are, we always want something. Anywhere and always. And we want it now! I give impressions of how digital natives live and can be addressed in various areas (consumption & services).

Resilience – Why setbacks make us stronger!

Longer breaks due to injuries (cruciate ligament tears, concussions & fractures) briefly meant an end to my active sports career. During the long, lonely breaks due to injury, I regained my strength and acquired new mental skills. Thanks to these experiences, I can endure setbacks and stressful situations better and recover from them more quickly. I share insights into how I strengthened resilience during the difficult times. This emotional and motivating presentation is suitable for team and employee events when not everything goes as planned.

From Setbacks to Self Leadership

Anfangs meiner Profikarriere lag mein Fokus ausschliesslich auf dem Sport und der Optimierung meiner Fähigkeiten. Doch mit Erfolgen, steigenden Erwartungen und zunehmendem Druck wurde es schwieriger, mich selbst richtig zu führen. Ich verlor die Kontrolle, was zu schweren Verletzungen und einem Verlust des Fokus führte. Auf der Reise durch die Tiefen meiner Karriere habe ich gelernt, aus Rückschlägen wichtige Lektionen zu ziehen. Diese schwierigen Zeiten haben es mir ermöglicht, als Mensch und Sportler zu wachsen. Selbstführung für Erfolg und die Überwindung von Herausforderungen sind entscheidend, um das volle Potenzial zu entfalten. Integrale Führung beginnt bei sich selbst. Ich bin stolz darauf, nach fast zwei Jahren Pause wieder im Wettkampf zu stehen und mich als bester Europäer auf der Snowboard- Halfpipe-Weltrangliste zu etablieren.

You can book me for personal presentations. I would be happy to give you insights based on my experiences in sport and the athlete mindset I have trained in. The presentations are emotional and motivating stories with aha moments that can also be applied to business.

Both of my lecture topics can be booked for your event as standard or tailored to your industry and needs. Contact me directly at:

David gave the final presentation of the day at our corporate event. He shared his inspiring journey of resilience from his sports career, encompassing all the highs and lows he has encountered and how he overcame the difficulties. David’s presentation was engaging and thought-provoking, providing an injection of energy into the room after a long day of presentations and workshops. Sharing his experience of embracing challenges with a positive mindset as well as sharing practical approaches to dealing with setbacks was very motivational to the group. David was an excellent speaker and I would recommend him for future corporate events.

We at the Liechtenstein Banking Association had the pleasure of organizing a fascinating lecture with David about Generation Z in the art museum in Vaduz. It was about values, effective leadership and the importance of sustainability. The subsequent discussion highlighted the importance of the topic for GenZ in general and David in particular, as well as David's extensive knowledge and personal commitment, including with his start-up 'The TEAL Project. Thank you again, David, for your great presentation, your personal insights, the open words and your authenticity!

CEO Liechtenstein Banking Association, Simon Tribelhorn, June 2023


At our VR conference, David Hablützel showed us “older people” what makes Generation Z tick and how to address them. Technology-savvy and always online, impatient and demanding, health and environmentally conscious! We “Baby Boomers” and “Gen X” can still learn a lot from this. It was an exciting exchange for us, the board of directors and the bank management, and we gained some input and ideas on which we will build.

Thank you very much David Hablützel for the insight into Gen Z.

Christian Stucki, Chairman of the Raiffeisen bank management on the right Lake Zurich


Our technical apprentices from the libs Unternehmerhaus were able to gain exciting insights into the topics of start-ups and Gen-Z through the input session with Dave. Thank you for stopping by – we look forward to next time.

Chris Bargholz, Managing Director Rhino Innovations


Dear David! Your presentation on the topic of resilience and its strengthening was inspiring but also entertaining for our employees at Walde Immobilien AG. We thank you for the many exciting learnings! You did great!

Jann Felber, COO Walde Immobilien AG


David Habluetzel's talk about overcoming challenges in top-class sport on the way to the goal was very inspiring. We have gained valuable insights that can easily be transferred to professional and private life. The snowboard professional's descriptions were also very suitable for illustrating the various principles from self-management to resilience. The around 60 mostly younger participants at our alumni meeting were enthusiastic and I can only recommend David as a speaker.
