PASSION – it can get you anywhere! Passion can be seen as the fuel that allows the human engine to go a little faster and smoother than it usually would. It can also get you much further in life. Not only does passion give us direction, but it also gives us a sense of purpose. And purpose seems to be one of the things people are always looking for. Passion makes things exciting. Passion is the differentiating factor. Passion is what keeps us going until we reach our goals.

Speaker of the 2019 TEDxFHKufstein


Please note that all talks are held in English!


Niklas Winter

The world of extreme sport

The world of extreme sports is an unusual feat. People are fascinated when watching videos of risky stunts, yet they regard the athletes as crazy people. Niklas Winter, a wingsuit BASE jumper, free solo highliner and passionate adventure lover, will take you on a tightrope walk between peace of mind and overconfidence.


The German extreme sports enthusiast Niklas Winter has tried many different sports, but what really stuck with him was slacklining. From the first steps in the park, it developed into a sport in the heights of the mountains and eventually he even started walking highlines without safety. After that he fulfilled himself a life-long dream by starting BASE jumping and wingsuiting.

He’s a curious person and an analytical thinker and always in search of new experiences. For his last stunt, he walked on a slackline between two hot air balloons above monument valley. Through his sports, he has traveled the world, met many people and learned a lot. Especially dealing with death has permanently changed his view on life. It doesn’t surprise, that he’s studying philosophy now, even though he already finished his master degree in electrical engineering with high distinction.

Sebastian Körber

The change man

Sebastian is the change man. After his studies of clinical psychology he emigrates to Latin America, where he worked e.g. in a Peruvian jail or with guerillas in Colombia. Meanwhile being an entrepreneur, his companies in Austria, US and Colombia focus on quick and effective development processes of coporations such as individuals. And they deliver.


Sebastian is a serial entrepreneur based in Austria and Colombia. Originally he graduated from the University of Vienna with a master’s degree in Psychology and afterwards underwent a postgraduate in Clinical Psychology. After this he emigrated to South America, working in a Peruvian jail or in a resocialization programs for guerillas in Colombia. There he encountered the focus of his work, fear. He is a leadership trainer for high executives in change processes. His style is tough and very direct, often painful. Once a year he gathers together adrenaline-seeking executives in Medellin-Colombia and guides them through their psyches.

Applying successful strategies dealing with fear to leadership made him an expert in Change Management. He has impact.

Sebastian is teaching at several universities in Europe and America. He’s working languages are German, English and Spanish


Sven Haefliger

A path of fulfillment

Sven Haefliger has taught piano to adults for 25 years. “Piano practice should be a path of fulfillment, not a torture!” So he has intensively researched learning methodologies and created a framework in which creativity and structure are given equal consideration.“


Sven Haefliger started playing the guitar at the age of ten. Even at this young age, practicing guitar was something he enjoyed and was very passionate about. A few years later he began sharing this passion by offering guitar lessons to others.

Sven started to play the piano in his early 20’s. He was immediately fond of the concept of 88 keys. He was intrigued by the possibility of playing something meaningful after only a couple of hours, even for someone who lacked technical abilities.

Very soon he started teaching the piano to adults only. He came to realize that for most of his students, practicing is a struggle. This struggle was fueled by unrealistic goals, false expectations and wrong methods. There was no system made especially for adults to learn the piano. Even though there are thousands of books and apps – nothing seemed to meet all the needs of an adult learner. So, he created a framework to learn playing the piano, that included a balance of creativity and structure.

Additionally, he is one of the most successful Solopreneurs in Switzerland. Sven won the “Business Development” competition in 2014 in the CTI Entrepreneurship in Zürich. Since 2017 he has a corporation with a big brand in the piano industry.

He is very passionate about coaching others to fulfill their life dreams, the same way he is fulfilling his.

Nathaly Tschanz

There is more than one reality

Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality can push existing boundaries and open doors to new dimensions. With software, you can bend the laws of physics. Fiction becomes reality. This is what fascinates Nathaly Tschanz since a decade. Despite her passion for emerging technologies, she knows well that breaking new ground is a challenge – for various reasons. In her talk, she explains why it is still worth staying true to your passion.


Nathaly Tschanz, non-fiction author and lecturer/researcher at the University of Applied Science HTW Chur in Switzerland, has had a disruptive career path. This matches her area of expertise: Digital Business Management / Extended Realities. While she was working in Rome 10 years ago, she came across Augmented Reality, a technology that was hardly known at the time. It sparked a deep passion for emerging technologies and new means of information and knowledge transfer. From then on, she built bridges between content and technology in various companies and positions – for example as Head of Digital Content at one of Switzerland’s biggest media brands. Today, she is leading applied research projects, shares her knowledge in lectures and talks and has published two books about Augmented and Mixed Reality.

Paul & Hansen Hoepner

Passion makes us carry on with something

Paul and Hansen are Adventurers and Inventors with all their heart. In their current project they combine these two passions, by constructing a walking and rolling amphibious vehicle and try to travel across Alaska with it, all under their own steam.

Adventure to them is a way of life: it means having the courage to find out, what one is capable of.


Hansen Hoepner, born on April 6, 1982 in Singen am Hohentwiel, studied Product Design and Photography at the Academy of Fine Arts Maastricht. After graduation he worked for the interior designer Maurice Mentjens. In 2011 he moved from Maastricht to Berlin to plan the bike tour from Berlin to Shanghai with his brother. He currently works as an independent product designer in Berlin and is part of the central organization team of the creative working group KAOS (

Paul Hoepner, born five minutes after his brother Hansen, spent a year in Australia after completing high school, then graduated in media design in Cologne and then spent two years working in an agency (virtual­ as an online conceptioner in Berlin. He then studies Human Factors (humanfactors.tu­ in Berlin and worked at Pocketweb ( as a project manager and conceptioner for mobile applications. Both have worked together as inventors and adventurers for many years and can be seen on many talks and TV shows.
