The inspirational artist and keynote speaker Phil Hansen has a unique way of looking at the world and the challenges we go through. Phil is known worldwide for his art and story and has become a popular speaker for large events and organizations. He also offers clients a unique interactive team-building experience through his original and innovative art.

“We need to first be limited in order to become limitless.” – Phil Hansen

Speaker Phil Hansen is known by his fans as “the artist for the people” and his art is a unique cross between traditional art, electronic media, offbeat materials and interactive experiences. On his YouTube channel, he shows the process of his art-making which has attracted millions of views. His success today makes it hard to imagine that Phil once almost let go of his talent and dream.

Phil Hansen was an art student when he got devastating life-changing news about his health. Due to an intense style of pointillism, he was diagnosed with a tremor in his drawing hand. This led him feeling devastated and he lost hope and dropped out of art school until a neurologist told him one day to “embrace the shake”. This became the beginning of a new adventure for Phil, and it drew him to be more creative in his art.

Phil told his story at a TED event and his story was shared and viewed by thousands. Through his keynotes, his story keeps inspiring individuals, executives, leaders and teams to embrace whatever challenge they’re going through and use it to their advantage. Speaker Phil Hansen also offers interactive experiences that connect people in a new and different way. The originality of the final art piece has wowed audiences all over the world.

Special Virtual Keynote by speaker Phil Hansen

Embrace The Shake

Not your average virtual presentation. Phil brings you into his studio through a mixture of visuals and multi-cameras (like a TV production), to make you feel like you’re in the room.

Audiences will feel inspired, engaged with Phil’s personal journey of overcoming adversity. They will learn a new creative tool to help them see their own limitations in a new way. His program will help them focus on what they can do to help each other and themselves rather than look for external resources.

Whether your virtual conference is on Zoom, a live private Facebook group, or professionally hosted, Phil will genuinely connect a highly relevant message to your attendees

Audience takeaways:

  • Identify preconceived assumptions that cause us to believe obstacles have the power to limit success.
  • Manage change through analysis and application of systematic creativity.
  • Reduce stress by turning inwards and looking at how our internal resources can solve the challenges ahead

Transforming Limitations Into Opportunities

The term “Embrace the Shake” is coined from Artist Phil Hansen’s personal story of transformation. After developing a career-ending tremor in his drawing hand, Phil embraced his “shake” both physically and metaphorically by redefining his limitation as an impetus for creativity. Phil not only restored his artistic abilities, he became a much more creative and innovative artist than ever before. Upon sharing his message on the TED stage and millions subsequently after, “Embrace the Shake” has become a motto for many businesses to approach their limitations in a new way.

Phil’s powerful message of finding creativity within limitations will inspire you to stop looking on the outside, and start looking inside yourself for resources that can transform your challenges into opportunities for success. And like Phil’s art, “Embrace the shake” isn’t just a talk, it’s an experience! Through jaw-dropping visuals and LIVE interactive art, get ready to break preconceived assumptions, activate your creative capacity, and bring fresh ways of viewing the task at hand that will culminate with success

Audience takeaways:

  • Identify preconceived assumptions that cause us to believe obstacles have the power to limit success.
  • Break down resistance to limitations by recognizing their role in driving – versus stifling – creativity.
  • Explore ways to view problems with a fresh perspective by activating internal resources, the most important being creativity.
