Instructor Biography

Sebastian Glöckner, Make Things Happen!

Hi!

Do you know that feeling one day ahead of vacation when you sort out your
projects, send overdue emails and suddenly get a lot things done? For me every day should be as successful as that! And I would like to share enough knowledge with you to make that happen.

I work as a project manager, entrepreneur and management consultant for more than 15 years. I love to deconstruct systems, improve processes and bring projects to success (and did that already for various customers all over Europe).

Currently I work full time as a project manager and process expert. My daily business it to make things faster and manage multiple things at the same time.


I am into time- and self management. I love improving myself and assist others in working faster and with better results. 

In the past decade I studied various resources about time management, project management, and self management. Doing that I came to the conclusion that 80% of the common "self management tips" do not work as promised. That's why I developed invented my own system for being as productive as possible.
