I'm a Trainer, Coach and one time Author, with more then 10 years of hands-on leadership experience working with youth and young adults. While I discovered experiential training, learnt the craft of coaching, and found incredible fulfilment working as a personal development coach, I apprenticed as a carpenter, served in the german air force as a Station Instructor and Group Leader for the Basic Military Training, and concluded my professional career as choreographer and dancer with co-creating one of the most successful ballet and breakdance crossover productions in Germany.
Fading Darkness, my first book, is a story about fear and loss, hope and courage. About daring to be different, so that we can make a difference. But most of all, this is a story about love. And this unique book comes with chapter insights that help you expand your perceptions, challenge the mundane and listen to your heart.

It's been a great time!"

"To work as a trainer most of all you need to be gifted in observation. In addition you need the freedom not to assess or to judge the observed. Finally you need love and patience, thus may help the trainee to discover it themselves. All three capabilities I can find in Sebastian Schick."
Johannes Engels - Head of the Department for Culture in Würzburg -retired, University for Music Würzburg
"Sebastian Schick is one of those personalities who – despite their young age – get our attention and wake our interest. He excels as coach, speaker and trainer because of his receptivity, sensitivity and judgment, through which he quickly wins other people’s trust and offers a safe space to open up. In his exchange with different generations he remains highly teachable and is able to pass on gained experiences to younger people. His interaction with people of different social sectors and age groups stands out through immense human knowledge and empathy. He always knows how to motivate and inspire his partners and to encourage them to perform extraordinarily."
Gene Dunaway, president of Sustain Strategies Inc.
“Sebastian stands out as a ‘bright star’ among the people I have worked with. He is creative, generative, follows through, positive, energetic, persevering, grounded, confident without a hint of arrogance and works well with others. He is truly an amazing person and I give him my highest recommendation.”
Chris Böhm - 2 times winner of German BMX Flatland Championship, CEO and founder of newscoolflatland Events
"I first worked with Sebastian at the Juzo Event in Berlin. He was hosting my new show “BMtriX” (BMX and Tricking). I found it great how he integrated himself into the encore after the show. He not only hosts professionally but has cool breakdance moves, too. Thumbs up!"
Anna Vita - ballet director at the Mainfranken Theater
"When it comes to teamwork, motivation, organisation, flexibility, spontaneity and being a leader of a group, Sebastian Schick is an exceptional talent. The collaboration for "Schneewitchen - Breaking Out" at the Mainfranken Theater in Würzburg has also been artistically inspiring. He demonstrated excellent empathetic skills when capturing the important aspects of the dramaturgy, and knew how to implement these for himself and his breakdancers in a humorous, brisk and theatrically plausible way. With tremendous endurance and discipline he finishes his work and never loses his cheerfulness and his quick-thinking. In his teaching and conveying of the art of breakdance, he gained a lot of respect from the dancers within the ballet company. With these excellent qualities in tow, I can recommend Sebastian Schick in good conscience as an employee, choreographer, teacher and coach in many areas."
Linda Grauschopf - certified social education worker, Head of the youth centre Bechtolsheimer Hof (Würzburg)
"We at the youth centre ‘B-Hof’ appreciate Sebastian Schick’s work at numerous events a lot. He always impresses with a big sovereignty and spontaneity. Most of all his ability to motivate the attendees and to integrate the audience of the event, as well as his particular rhetorical skills characterise him. Easily he inspires the audience with his entertaining and charming type and by that he’s to be recommended for kids and youth events, without any limitations."
Andreas Blum - certified teacher, business coach at Talentify and CEO of PersoNova
"I appreciate Sebastian a lot because he has got an understanding of the work with children and youths like hardly another. He is capable of detecting the kid’s talents in an inspiring, enthralling and professional way and to arouse their motivation and zest for life. Sebastian is as a trainer, coach and moderator a precious encourager and a true benefit to every big and small youth event."
Levent Kotil - dancer and illustrator
"When I first attended my private dance class I got to know Sebastian not only as a dancer but as coach as well. Time after time I realised that he didn't only help me to improve my moves. But he also taught me how to get forward in life. For example, to believe in myself, to be confident in my own skin, to make the best of what I have, to listen to myself, to do things that I want to do and, especially, to love myself. I think to really love is the key to be of great service to people. And Sebastian has that."
Kelly Chua Kai Ling - Consultant at Hays, Specialising in Marketing and Communications Recruitment
"Sebastian stands out as a highly responsible and driven individual who goes the extra mile to achieve his dreams and that of his team. For an intelligent person like Sebastian who is highly driven to learn and improve, I have no doubt that he will be successful in his life and for his employer's."
Anissa Nasser - Assistant Manager, Sprachzentrum Süd in Holzkirchen
"Sebastian Schick worked as a camp leader in our German language camp located in Munich Castle for international students (14 to 17 years old) which we organized in cooperation with GLS Berlin. The camp leader is responsible for up to 55 students per week and has to coordinate the staff, the students and the German teachers. He is also responsible of the welfare of the students, organizing activities and excursion programs together with the staff and has to fulfill administrative tasks such as the coordination of transfers. Sebastian showed great professionalism and leadership as a camp leader and was able to establish an excellent rapport with the students and the staff. The teenagers who come from all over the world were enthusiastic about the dancing classes he offered. We would love to work with him again!"
