ABOUT WIEBE'S PRESENTATIONS

Wiebe’s lectures are about courage, perseverance, reaching mass media, creativity, personal development, suffering, (sustainable) entrepreneurship, the goodness of mankind, culture, sustainability and electric mobility.

He draws his experiences from his journey. After studying at the University of Arts, Wiebe drove by himself, but with the help of hundreds of strangers to literally the other side of the world. He started this adventure without money and was completely dependent on the generosity of people.

On this website, people could select their location and offer Wiebe a meal, a place to sleep or electricity for the car. Wiebe drove from socket to socket and the route to Sydney was gradually determined. Not in a straight line but crisscrossing the world.

As can be expected, such an adventure does not run smoothly and Wiebe has many experiences along the way. In India, the charger of his car explodes and he faced a huge challenge when driving further was no longer possible.

But wherever he goes, he gets help from his online followers and helpful locals. In Dubai, wealthy sheikhs take care of him, in Malaysia he meets a famous prince, and in Indonesia he grows into a real celebrity who even appears in the tabloids.

Along the way, Wiebe stopped at sustainable organizations to learn about climate issues in the various regions he visited and saw countless solutions. Wiebe shared all his experiences and insights to educate, inspire and accelerate the transition to a more sustainable future.

Wiebe’s trip became the longest ever in an electric car and he was the first to cross several countries in an EV. In total, he drove through 34 countries and covered more than 100,000 fully electric kilometres. Despite the necessary obstacles, Wiebe managed to reach his final goal on the other side of the world, inspiring hundreds of thousands of people. This gave him international media attention and a name as an ambassador for sustainable mobility.

Would you rather organize an online meeting from a location, with an audience that can watch online via a live stream? That is possible: I also speak at hybrid events.

DB Breweries/HEINEKEN was lucky to host Wiebe on the last leg of his around-the-world trip in New Zealand. Wiebe’s authentic, easy going style presentation style was well-received by our staff and his talk was both entertaining and informative. Our staff came away more informed about EVs and inspired to live a little more sustainably in their own lives.

Wiebe is an inspiring and enthusiastic speaker! The very same week he concluded his world tour in an electric vehicle, he took the time to come into the LinkedIn Sydney office to tell his story. He inspired many of my colleagues on the possibilities of EVs! I would highly recommend Wiebe as a public speaker.

Visitors to Ecomobiel were very enthusiastic about Wiebe's presentation. Wiebe's journey is unique and so is his story. Wiebe inspires, makes people think and provides a comic note. After you have heard his story, you know that you can achieve your goals, even if they seem totally unattainable.

Wendy van de Geijn

What a beautiful story and presentation! Wiebe told us how he travelled through 34 countries with an electric car and without financial means. His journey was not an easy one, one with many obstacles and challenges. In an energetic and funny way he told his story. Especially his message about sustainability came across strongly, a theme we work on every day within our organisation. Wiebe met a lot of people and was able to share the purpose of his journey with the people met, which inspired and convinced a lot of people to start thinking more about sustainability. He also inspired our team. I would highly recommend him as a speaker!

Technical Manager / Rijkswaterstaat

On 24 October we organised a so-called pressure cooker session. With the business community, young people, government and education, to come up with smart solutions about the changes in education and the labour market in relation to the energy transition. In order to show how fast the world is changing and what is possible, we needed inspiration. We asked Wiebe for that. And this turned out to be great; the success of the day, for young and old. Afterwards, everyone wanted a photo with Wiebe and signature. Wiebe, your story inspires!

Arianne Westerveel

We really enjoyed Wiebe's stories about his bizarre trip to Australia in an electric car. It was very inspiring to hear him talk about the more than 95,000 kilometres and 33 countries of the longest journey ever in an electric car. With his down-to-earth humorous comments on the visual spectacle, Wiebe knows how to captivate to the end. You get the urge to travel and it helps almost therapeutically against "range anxiety" ?
