“How to Become a Positive Genius – Inspiring, Leading, Energizing Communities for a Better Being”
In his second book: Before Happiness, Shawn describes 5 skills which lead people to become a Positive Genius. If you able to choose the most positive reality (skill 1), if you are able to map the success route (skill 2), if your brain is able to release success accelerants (skill 3), if you canceling out distracting and destructive negative noise (skill 4) and if you create positive inception (skill 5) by transferring that reality to others, you are a Positive Genius. This is the foundation of my presentation.
“Pilot or Passenger?”
Do you want to go through life as a passenger on someone else‘s journey, or be the pilot of your life, deciding the route and the destination. Sure it’s comfortable to be a passenger, and it’s hard work to be the pilot, but I will suggest that the rewards are worth the effort. I will use personal experiences to illustrate that it’s possible and that it’s never too late to move out of economy class and up into the cockpit.
“The Most Creative Place on the Planet”
What is it, where is it, the 10 Principles of this place, highlighting my favorite two, my participation as a fire performer, the types of activities, art / costumes, and how it changed my life.
“The Honest Guide to Getting on in a Big Corporate Company”
We love motivational slogan grabbing motivational presentations, but deep down we know successful corporate people use lots of behaviour that are not in the self help books. This will be a tongue in cheek, cynical look at playing the corporate game.
“Walking Tour Around lake Balaton or How to Wander Around Lake Balaton on Foot”
I decided to go for a walking tour around Lake Balaton this year. On of my friends organized a team, using a Facebook event. Completely different and strange people applied to participate and the four of us started the tour. At the end of our walking tour we became friends and collected a lot of interesting experiences. All in all we spent an amazing week around Lake Balaton and I would like to encourage more people to do the same: get out of your comfort zones, put on your best shoes and start discovering this lovely area around the Hungarian Sea.

“Let Your Body Lead”
In the West we are so mind-oriented that we have literally become, as the British say, “mental.” The mind is like a toddler, constantly distracted by the shiniest object in the room and just as we wouldn’t let a toddler lead our homes, we mustn’t let our mind lead our body. By becoming better grounded in our body and our emotions we can lead happier, more creative lives.
“How to Set Up a Good Home Anywhere”
The concept of home is more than a place. Moving to another city, to another country and travelling change the way we look at our home. We can build a physical home anywhere in the world and we have to make it so that it is not only a place to put our heads down at night but it is a place where we like to return.
“What is YOUR Tipping Point? Mine was Insulin Resistance”
I will talk about our own resistance to change. Sometimes a situation has to get worse so that we will be motivated to change. In my case, I was diagnosed with IR – that was the needing motivation to lose 20 kgs, run the half-marathon and completely change my eating, drinking, etc. habits. This difficult health situation proved to be a blessing.
“Find Your Courage”
One thing that has changed my life since I decided to make the most of it, is an ever present desire to be brave. My speech is about what courage can give you, why it is hard (and will result in kicks to the face from life) and why it is still worthwhile.
