Everything I do is custom made, because I have the ability and -as I see it- responsibility to give my very best, which is doing what adds the most value right then and there.
I improvise. And it always proves to be exactly what the audience would have chosen if it would have been their decision.
I can do anything from 10 minutes to 8 hours, with 20 people or 1000, and anything in between. I love interaction. I love the unexpected. If you want me to do most of the talking, I will. If you want it to be a conversation, that would be wonderful.
The how and why are up to you, the what I align with what adds the most value.

This is the only lecture where I need slides. Every slide has the same title: “Choose love”. Every time, it’s the answer to a question from the audience. They decide right then and there what I need to do, by writing their biggest fears on small pieces of paper. In this session, I combine the best of what I know with the best of my intuition. This is the most intimate of my lectures, because it’s not a lecture. It’s an exchange on a deeper level, where both the audience and I are at our most vulnerable and at the same time at our most powerful. Clients have referred to this session as “truly transformative”, “inspiring”, “powerful”, “healing”, “original” and on one occasion even as “divine intervention”.
This talk is based on my second book: “Gurus in sneakers” which focuses on my belief that in this new era we are collectively shifting into, we will not have to search for anything outside of ourselves. It’s all there. All you need is a kind reminder to wake up to all the knowledge, wisdom, peace, greatness, and happiness that is already there. We are all gurus. Some of us wear robes. Most of us wear sneakers. All of us are able to change the world, starting with our own.
Chapters in the book that I could refer to or zoom in on in the talk:
-You are whole
-All is as it should be
-You are everything
-Pass it on
This session can easily be transformed into a highly interactive training session or workshop. In that case, I can work with topics such as finding your purpose, reframing your mindset, defining and realizing your goals, finding and living in line with your true values, connecting what you stand for individually with the collective that you are a part of [family, tribe, organization, brand, etc.].
This talk is based on my book “Broke, not broken”, on which I also did a TED talk in 2018, which reached almost a million views and led to many other speaking engagements.After years of making easy money in branding, I chose to become a purpose driven entrepreneur and suddenly seemed to have forgotten everything I had learned about business.
In the summer of 2016, I experienced several financial setbacks and suddenly, I was completely broke with no way out. I published a video on Facebook, stating that I had failed, but I would learn from the best, be free of financial stress within 6 months, and write a book about it so others could learn from my mistakes. That same day, I sold 64 books. Six months later, I was free of financial stress, but I had only just begun to realize that money problems are never about money.
In this talk, I share what I learned about money and business, but mostly what I learned about value and life. I can do this talk in a variety of forms. Anything from storytelling to simply having a conversation. Fully improvising, addressing key points we discussed in advanced, or and extended version of the TED talk for however long you like. If the lecture is in line with the TED talk, the lessons learned could be as follows:
-Money is important
-Money equals time
-Money equals value
-What people say doesn’t matter
-What people say matters
-It’s very simple
-It’s not easy
-Being broke sucks
-Money is not important
This is an improv session, suitable for any size audience. I ask the audience to write one thing on piece of paper that they don’t usually talk or think about. For instance: “What would you do if you were fearless?” I collect the answers and create the session right then and there, responding to as many notes as I can while intuitively knowing what to say that will resonate the greatest with the most people in the room. Not only will I inspire them and wake them up, I will also help them define their first actions so they can start living in the direction of their purpose within 24 hours.
This session also works wonders when preceded by the “WTF = Purpose?” workshop. When combined, participants will first discover the “what” of their purpose in the workshop and then find the almost effortless “how” in the stand-up session.
