„Leadership means to go forward courageously.”
Doctors set a deadline for his life, but he set goals. The audience holds its breath when Nicola De Nittis, an expert in leadership and self-management, talks about resistance. His words: precise. His openness: disarming. His fire: Italian direct.
De Nittis moves his audience far beyond professional expertise. As an expert for leadership and resilience, he speaks rich in experience about the courage to lead oneself and, as a powerful keynote speaker, sets the decisive impulse to bring people into action.
He should have been dead 20 years ago. Instead, the 1976-born speaker Nicola De Nittis has been an IT specialist, resilience coach and expert in leadership and self-management for 20 years. Born in Cologne, De Nittis was born with a rare genetic defect. The progressive blood disease resulting from it drastically minimizes the life expectancy. In its direct surrounding field nobody thought beyond De Nittis 20.Lebensjahr.
The bravest word in the world is: No!
Even as a child, Nicola De Nittis recognizes that a deadline does not release an executive, but rather thwarts him. He opens the door to the future by setting himself goals. Although he becomes a sought-after Big Data expert, the stamp sick = useless for 20 years forces him into a double life: here the resilient businessman, there the challenge of daily medical therapy and psychological limits. The fact that he has survived his deadline makes him a sought-after resilience expert and speaker for leadership at an early stage – it’s not allowed to be too big a bell. A balancing act.
The First Brave Speaker
The self-denial to the naked proof of achievement has consequences: Depression, sudden hearing loss. De Nittis has wrested a lot of time and career from existence – but for what? Hour zero.
With his agency “THE BRAVE SPEAKERS” he is the first to take an important step: he brings keynote speakers to the stage whose CVs impressively testify to how authenticity makes people and companies healthy and, above all, grow.
The speaker for Motivation knows: “My genetic defect seems to be a disadvantage. I alone have decided to turn it into an advantage. So can you. Every day.”
