Niels Brabandt was born in Hamburg, Germany and grew up in an environment driven by a family steeped in careers in local government and civil service officialdom. He decided to become a teacher but soon after university saw that this was not going to fulfil him and decided to follow a different path.
Niels Brabandt started his first business, NB Networks, in 1998, working as a speaker and trainer, before working within a multinational company. When he returned to his own business full time, he was soon winning international contracts and the business started to grow. Within the corporate world he has worked in Europe, North and Central America as well as in emerging markets around the globe. Due to international growth he relocated to London in 2012 and in October 2018 his business is celebrating its 20th anniversary. The business now has offices in Berlin, London, Dublin and New York.
Niels Brabandt now spends the majority of his time delivering keynotes and workshops around the world, where he is widely recognised as an inspiring and motivating speaker. He has the ability to explain scientifically proven content in layman’s terms. He is also frequently asked to act as a coach or mentor to business leaders or to offer interim management. He applies exactly the same models and research that he speaks about to his hands-on work with clients, giving him huge experience and respect among his peers and audiences. As someone who is born in Germany he is obsessed with generating efficient results. According to rumours he even has humour.
Niels is a Patron of Young Artists in London including links to The Soho Theatre and Phoenix Artist Club. Additionally, Niels coaches football (soccer) referees, after ending his own active career in the sport after 20 years.
