Project Development

Wolfgang Lalouschek


Wolfgang is one of the truly inspiring thought leaders. His modesty and empathy make every conversation with him an enriching encounter. His enormous knowledge and even more his experience in different fields lead to the fact that we in the planetYES team go far beyond the limits of what we had previously thought. Wolfgang is popular as a physician, a scientist and as a systemic coach and he enjoys a high reputation beyond the borders of his international network.

Sören Bauer

knowledge management | communication

Sören is the one who listens and sees the big picture. Having lived in almost every corner on this planet nothing can actually rattle or surprise him anymore. What he is looking for – and giving at the same time – is inspiration, trustfulness and „joie the vivre". If you want to know Sören better, take him for a walk in nature. You will come home enriched.

Bettina Dreiseitl-Wanschura

regional and urban strategies

Bettina is one of that smart, balanced and independent women you would like to work and be friend with. No need to be in the front row, but no worries to take immediately the lead if it is necessary. Excellent and clear presentation is based on mindful, warm and very logic thinking. As landscape architect she considers things in a comprehensive way. Her work is well founded, thought and not superficial at all. But the best is, what she does is being smart, flexible and to the point at the same time. While we are still dreaming to save the world, she will be the one who has huge influence on the realization. She grounds planetYES as the one who has a lot of experience how the transformation process works.

Harald Preyer

investor relations

Harald is a phenomenon. A strategic thinker with huge experience. At the same time, he shows great power when things have to go fast. In complex discussions he listens carefully in the background and in the end, he poses the right question – the question which focusses everyone to the important point. His economic thinking is always focused on the purpose behind. Others have networks, but Harald has friendships. And most importantly, his deep humanity and his effort to make this world a little bit better stand above all.

Raphael Rigoberto Thonhauser

entrepreneurship | innovation

When Raphael is not digging into the genius of Leonardo Da Vincis contribution to the modern world, he is polishing his golden medal as European Entrepreneurship Champion. Always challenging the greatest ideas equally with top innovation managers or the little siblings of his friends, he still finds the time to train his soccer team as “best youth trainer” in his club. You will find him feed insects as “the biggest solution to the global protein shortage” to his dearest, when he is not convincing his peers that with a strong belief and a decent amount of discipline, our generation will finally make the change. With his second name Rigoberto, named after Nobel Prize winner Rigoberta Menchú Tum, he is walking in great footsteps. Never make a joke about his grandmother, she is his biggest role model.

Alina-Theresa Vetter

social impact

Alina is a natural born challenger. Her principle-driven and activist personality make life on her side a steady journey to global awareness. She is always taking care about humans and shares her energy with those who need it. Many refugees will confirm that. In the course of her double master’s degree, she was exploring the world to bundle her ambition and deep commitment to this planet. When Alina jumps on a project, you can be sure that impact will follow. And don't worry, even if something politically problematic slips out of you - Alina will let you know… and then forgive you (hopefully).

Wolfgang Wainig

economy | financial industries

Wolfgang is a smart thinker and a warm person who likes to laugh. When he stares holes in the air, you can be sure that in the next moment he will deliver a speech about how to save the world – or at least a specific part of it. Due to his strong strategic thinking he loves to bring clarity into processes that seem to lose track. Besides his passion for the best grapes of the world, and how to consume their spirit in the community of great persons, he dedicates his life to finances, and how to revive encrusted structures for the sake of the human beings. He inspires planetYES with his forward thinking about how to bring the financial market together with the real needs of mankind.
