Since his exit from the international handball arenas in 2012, Lars Christiansen has positioned himself as one of the most prominent Danish sports profiles, that really has managed to transform his experiences as an athlete into something extremely relevant for audiences. His entertaining, honest and motivational keynotes have become extremely popular in Denmark.

In addition to the significant sport merits he has received, he is also known for his humour and his always entertaining comments – an athlete with a meaning and an edge.

Even as a young player, he acquired the title “World’s Best”. For a period of 20 years he scored 1503 goals in 338 A-matches, which is a Danish record. For most of his career he played in Flensburg-Handewitt. Here the opposing goalies found themselves passed by up to 3996 times by Lars’ quirky shots. He was appointed as “citizen of the year” in Schleswig Holstein, and after his exit from the German handball club the square around the clubhouse was renamed Lars Christiansen’s Square.

Today, Lars is a well sought after keynote speaker and handball expert.

    • Whether the target audience is young people or adults, this keynote is a simple reminder that we, as humans, employees and managers should never forget to take ourselves seriously.

    • The old cliché is still relevant: “Take yourself seriously – otherwise you can not expect anyone else to do it.”
