“wonder opens your mind”

Video for De speaker.nl by Johan Oudshoorn

In the series 'speakers with a mission' I was interviewed by Johan Oudshoorn for the speakers bureau The speaker.nl

In this video series, speakers talk about their mission.

In case you don't want to watch the video, the text is below:

Amazement refreshes the mind, and when you become amazed you become curious and then you sit on the edge of your seat and want to investigate what is going on.

I speak about Privacy, about integrity and about look differently.
The common thread in my shows about those themes is that it's about raising awareness of behavior within those themes.

So for example, how do you view the world around you? Are you clear about what you want to keep private and what you want to share? We do know that everything we do digitally can be hacked and traced, and we think our thoughts are safe. But is that so? That's not the case in my show about privacy, for example I have someone count to ten out loud while they look at me and then I know their PIN. So that's very bizarre if that's possible. I then link that to the world we live in. Suppose this were possible, suppose there are smart cameras that can read your mind. What will the world look like then?

I try to combine the spectacle side of illusion shows with a substantive side, so that it becomes a fun show that amazes. But it also makes the audience think.

If you give people a different view, can offer a different framework, then a different part of your brain will turn on. Then you get a good feeling.

My name is Jochem Nooyen, be amazed, because wonder opens your mind. And when your mind opens you are open to new ideas.
