His vision is to help people unleash their full potential. He’ll break the ice to establish the event as a safe space for open, honest sharing of Life Learnings - like speaking with close friends. A 22-year-old guy who wants to talk about life experience? Seriously? Basically, yes. He'll speak about the massive changes in his behavior, learnings from projects (from a hardware startup to a movie script up to InLearnity) and traveling around the world.
