“Jan Mühlfeit was the star guest speaker to a weekend retreat for newly appointed partners at Dentons, the world’s largest law firm. The retreat was focused specifically on high performance. Jan spoke with passion, humility and great humour to scores of the firm’s senior leaders and rising talent from all regions of the globe, illustrating the messages of his bestseller The Positive Leader and drawing on the rich experience he gained as chairman of Microsoft Europe and as an accomplished sportsman and executive coach. He radiates energy and fulfilment and is a living testament to the highly insightful lessons shared in his book. Audience feedback was outstanding in its praise for Jan as a hugely inspiring and motivating speaker.  People were clearly struck by the refreshing openness he demonstrated about his own life and by his determination that others should benefit from the great wisdom he has accumulated. Everyone left the room optimistic and enthusiastic about their new challenges.”
