Keynote speaker René Nielsen has defied the odds and is today able to present inspiring keynotes in front of large audiences. 23 years ago René was in an accident, where he lost both legs, but he decided not to let it ruin his life. Instead he makes sure to help and inspire thousands of employees and managers to better handle major and minor changes.

René’s keynotes are one’s that participants never forget. Rene can present keynotes in Danish and English for both private and public companies and organizations around the world.

In spite of a sometimes serious content, the mood is always lifted. He has inspired thousands of employees and managers to better handle major and minor changes.

The story of René Nielsen is the story of a man who was involved in an accident. The accident in itself was scary, hard and unfair, but after a huge shock and a year of endless physical pain he managed to turn a profound change into a strength. His story is about taking responsibility, and about how much we can achieve if we proactively seek development.

On April 21st, 1991, René lost both his legs in a train accident. Today, 20 years after the accident, René still does not know why he as a cheerful young banker and handball player at the top level, had to wake up in a hospital and be no more than 113 centimetres tall.

Despite the situation René decided to challenge his new life without legs. Even though he now only was half a man, he decided that he would be a whole person.

Up until the accident René wrote banker and elite athlete on his business card. He continued to do this after the accident and he has even added many new dimensions to his resume.

World Champion, Olympic gold medalist, Master of Physical Education and Welfare, mental coach in the big leagues, speaker and author are among the most meaningful. René’s book, “Half man – whole person”, has today been sold in more than 50,000 copies.

Currently René Nielsen lives a normal life as a husband and father of three. He works, takes his children to after school activities and takes care of the family garden.

    Half man & complete human – The story of a miracle man

    • Think the unthinkable. Waking up in a hospital and seeing that both your legs are gone. A scenario that makes everyday challenges, change and small conflicts fade.
    • The unthinkable became reality for René Nielsen. In this inspiring talk he talks about his life’s most important realization – the fact that he would never ever get his legs back. No matter what he did, no matter who he blamed and no matter how much bitterness he could mobilize.
    • In a humorous and tragicomic keynote René helps audiences understand the importance of change.
    • We are not born ready for change – it’s something we have to choose to be.
