Micael Hermansson began his teaching career in 1987 in Sweden. In the 2009 to 2010 school year, he experienced a very challenging class who didn’t seem to want to learn and found school boring. Being disheartened, he contemplated leaving teaching until he came up with a new idea to get the students involved and wanting to learn. He called it the ‘Grej of the day’ (GOTD), with ‘Grej’ meaning ‘one thing’ in Swedish.

GOTD involves three basic steps. On the day before the lesson, he gives his students a question to get their curiosity going. The next day, he gives a micro lesson (eight to 10 minutes) where he will present the facts in a storytelling manner accompanied by discussions etc. The final step is for the students to go home and retell the story to their parents. There are some sound pedagogical principles behind his method and they really work.

Micael was amazed at the transformation in his students, but it would be a few years later before the concept was used by other teachers. It became popular in Sweden and is now being transmitted around the world. Micael has won a number of awards for GOTD and for public speaking. He has given over 400 speeches since 2015 in 12 different countries and has written seven books about GOTD and effective speaking.

Why don't we teach the way we love to learn?

My keynote about “Grej of the day. I tell the story starting in my classroom in 2010 and guide the audience through HOW and WHY this method, this concept is perfect if you want students to love your lessons AND also remember afterwards. Based on new brain studies + evidence on how we accually learn – this keynote will make the audience think about learning in a brand new way AND give them the tools to start using the concept tomorrow! This is my little baby – my idea from the start and today I aim to spread GOTD both to the school and business world.

This keynote has been roadtested in USA, China and Australia.
300 keynotes since 2015.

The Presentation lift

This keynote is about how we can all become better speakers. My many keynotes surrounding GOTD made me more interested in the secrets of great presentations. After 400 speeches and interviews with more than twenty of Scandinavias best public speakers, I finally wrote my book Presentationslyftet and a keynote about it.

I want the audience to get effective tools and concrete tips on improved presentation- and rhetoric techniques that you can use in your next presentation. You will get an insight on great tips like “the primacy effect”, “the Zeigarnic effect”,”the Von Restorff effect” and what you can do with your speech.

I will talk about storytelling as an effective method of reaching your audience. I will show how to create the ultimate powerpoint presentation. The opposite to what I call “0-7-50 slides!” (The audience will get a quick look at my collection of THE WORST ppt slides I have ever seen). This is the keynote that will make the audience go home with a strong desire to modify there upcoming presentations – the same evening.

This keynote is tested close to 100 times since 2019. Both for business and education purpose, in Sweden and worldwide.

In this humorous and energizing keynote the audience will discover how to reach their own audience the best possible way with effective ways and shortcuts.
