    Speaker Aleksandra Ørbeck-Nilssen Keynote Topics:  

    • REWILD AND RECONNECT – What if we could decide what should exist?

    As technology & accessibility grow and disconnect us from our innate connection with the natural world, we start feeling a bigger need to reconnect, travel, wear fashion inspired by foreign cultures. Mindfulness and expression is key to current culture of a sustainable future.

    “Rewilding is not about going backwards, to prehistoric times. It’s about reconnecting to that wildness dormant inside you; and to mother earth that birthed us all, or that something that connect us to the earth we need to protect.


    shedding layers – stripping back the false, limiting beliefs  or what every is holding you back from becoming your full expression. Empowering and assisting people from all walks of life to love themselves, lead an inspired life, reach their fullest potential and what steps to take to become the change they want to see in the world.


    Personal story on being a woman, starting a business, standing strong, communicating values without fear, cooperating with others and learning to take up space to reach goals.

    • INDIGENOUS PEOPLE and the importance of diversity

    The lessons of indigenous peoples and how their ancient knowledge can inspire and innovate our worlds future sustainability.


    Aleksandra helps you to unlock creativity, communication and imagination to solve problems and address the challenges. I teach you how you can apply creativity to find unique solutions.

    Use improvisation to enhance communication skills.

    And overcome fear of failure and performance anxiety

    Aleks will help boost your potential, and rediscover your strengths as a person and as a team player and assist leaders, managers, employees, entrepreneurs and business executives take their corporate visions to a new level of inspiration and influence. Many companies today are struggling to motivate their employees or getting a good team work at play, some even have a hard time reaching the end goals of the business, because there is not enough initiative or our workers are clouded by fear of failure.


    Textbooks and scientists writing about animals teach us the facts, but what they do not mention is that these animals have true characters and personalities just like us, and through observing them we can learn about ourselves and what part we want to play in this ecosystem that is our everyday responsibility and reality.


    Global food problems, moderation and life choices. We are people and we live on earth. We are not just surrounded by nature, we are nature. We are individual cells in the planetary body. The health of the planet influences individual health, and individual health influences the planetary wellness.

    •  TRAVEL DEEPER – sustainable travel


    Aleks takes us on a journey on how a brand, model or magazine can:

    Create a simple and  product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to global problems.

    How we use business for good, through tailored products and services, logistical support and local production


    How we can protect, manage and sustain the cultural and natural integrity of communities and their environment. Ensure healthy and productive interactions to empower, minimise dependency and poverty and maximise communities feeling of ownership and pride to actively participate, lead and run projects as entrepreneurs, mentors and business owners.


    In April 2017, Aleksandra and two Ju/´hoansi bushmen walked across Namibia. 1490 km from the east to the west of the country. The distance will was great, the contrasts large, communication difficult, food security limited and wildlife encounters many. The walking expedition was done without money, relying on survival skills and the humanity of others. The kindness of strangers will help the wanderers summon the courage and endurance they’ll need to stay the path. Through her talk she takes us on a journey and connect us to what it feels to be truly connected with the world and your own true nature.


    Storytelling is what connects us to our humanity. It is what links us to our past, and provides a glimpse into our future. Since humans first walked the earth, they have told stories, before even the written word or oral language. Storytelling is how we make meaning out of the chaos of human existence. It provides a shape, so that our own lives have a beginning, middle, and an end, and we can feel like we’ve meant something, and left our mark on the world. Through this talk provides important storytelling tools on how to reach a larger audience and bring identity and personality to you vision, brand, business or social media marketing.
