My keynotes

 Entrepreneurship as it really is

Let´s spare a thought for the people struggling to make their ideas happen. In this keynote speech I take the audience through the entrepreneurial journey: how people perceive the entrepreneur´s day-to-day and how it really is. In the face of that reality, I impart practical advice on turning ideas into real businesses.

Demystifying the Millennial Question

The whys and wherefores of Millennial behaviour have employers and marketers endlessly wringing their hands. I clear up the mystery by painting an actionable picture of Millennials´preferred means of communication, workplace models, and best practice when it comes to engaging with this group, possessed as they are of more than a little self-regard. Unsure of how to engage a generation brought up in an unprecedented tech and social milieu? The question matters to me personally because every day I´m either collaborating, hiring or marketing to them. Here´s what I know that you can use.

What They’re Saying

“After having seen dozens of different talks about entrepreneurship, I can confidently point to Max Gouchan´s as some of the best. As a key speaker during ´Start with a Thursday´ at Høyskolen Kristiania in 2014, he inspired the crowd to start new businesses in a motivating, realistic and understandable way. I highly recommend him.”

Hans Christian Rognerudengen, Project manager, Start CK.

“I had the pleasure to have Max as speaker under at Næringslivsdagene 2014 at Stavanger Konserthus for BI Stavanger. He really motivated the students and got them to see the opportunities that entrepreneurship holds. I would definitely recommend Max for conferences and business speeches. He did a great job.”

Fredrik BrekkeLeder av Næringslivsdagen BI

“We hereby confirm that Max Gouchan was a speaker at the Young Professional Arena during ONS Young 2014. Max was asked to tell his entrepreneurial story and how he started his own oil company at the age of 18. Max has an attractive personality and is good on stage, and he easily manages to engage the audience. He did an excellent job as a speaker at the Young Professional Arena 2014. Max Gouchan has my strongest recommendations. ”

Leif Johan Sevland, President and CEO, ONS

“Max Gouchan´s participation during the IV International Congress for University Students 2015, which was held in the city of Guadalajara–Mexico and arranged by the UNESCO Chair of Youth, was a success. He motivated hundreds of young people based on his experience as an entrepreneur. Certainly he has to return to our city because he has a lot of communication skills and energy.
