“Your dreams are your secret weapon!”
The Dreamwork movement liberated dreamers from passively lying on the analyst’s couch, where they had their dreams interpreted for them, and put them up on their feet, where they take the power of working with their dreams back to themselves. Recent years have seen an explosion of popularity for the phenomenon of “lucid dreaming” (becoming aware that you are dreaming while you are dreaming) but a “secret weapon” that’s less known, and perhaps even more useful is dream incubation. With this method you begin having ongoing conversations with your dreams in which you ask questions, and your dreams give you answers.
“Who is disabled?”
In my speech I’d like to present a new approach towards disability to prove the audience that ones physical condition is not what makes people be non-able. Its much rather our way of thinking and living that determine our abilities.
“Living and working on a cruise ship”
Having worked for 3 years at sea I will share my stories and pictures, to give an insight into what it takes to live and work on an ocean liner, that carries 3500 guests each week, served by 1100 crew members.

“Your mind is a portable boombox”
Your mind is a portable boombox that plays the same cassette tapes over and over again. It’s time to observe, press the stop button and record new albums! We will have five minutes to introduce various interpretation errors of the mind and to give you some practical tools to overcome your thinking traps. Prepare for a fun session that will expose negative self-talk through short stories that you can relate to. Once the five minutes are up, you will be equipped to change those old tapes and record new ones to induce positive change in your life.
“How liberal has become a term of abuse”
Liberal used to be a positive word, but in recent years has become a popular term of abuse. Have we brought it on ourselves?
What motivates people to do 21st century jobs which need creativity, innovation and conceptual thinking? Do rewards and punishments make them working better?
“Hello AI, let’s be friends”
I plan to scrutinize the different aspects of the necessity of artificial intelligence in our everyday life and future possibilities.
“How to survive the robot apocalypse”
The 3 things you need to do to avoid your job being replaced by robots.
“AI Transformation: how artificial intelligence is going to shape our everyday life”
AI and robotics is developing in an extreme pace and is changing our future. I would like to highlight some aspects of where AI is today, and where it is going in the near future, to close with some questions to think of about how man and machine are going to live together in the future. Are we going to be cyborgs? Are we going to try to control AI? Is AI going to take over? If so, how?
“How to improve your communication using satir categories”
I’d like to introduce Virginia Satirs five communication types and show ways how these categories could be used to improve communication, in conflict resolution and also in enhancing the messages of any presentation.
“National identity in a global world”
My presentation is about what national identity means today, how our notions and feelings have developed over the past – with some personal stories, and what the future might look like.
