Seize Your Moments World Tour - Janne Willems

  • Jun 17, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I am very excited about this meetup as we are having a very special guest speaker - Janne Willem from the Neverlands coming along. Janne is currently travelling the world to collect 1000 beautiful moments per continent, simply by asking people to draw.

She has travelled all across Europe and Asia and is now in Australia to continue her world tour. She has presented at TEDx (first one ever on a train) and has a very interesting backgroup (she has a background in Neuroscience and Philosophy)

To find out more information about Janne or her initiative please go to:!/seizeyourmoments/info


During the meetup, Janne will talk to us about her tour so far and why she is doing this. We will then get creative and create our own special moments. Please do not worry if you don’t consider yourself as the “creative type”, its about the experience and having fun...

I hope that you will be able to come along and show your support on this wonderful initiative. Money raised from the night will be donated to Janne to support her to continue to spread happiness around the world...if you can't afford it though, just let me know and I will exempt you from payment.

Hope to see you!...

Warm regards,

    Janne is a delightful, warm and open human being on a wonderful journey. A real delight to listen to someone with such a simple but powerful idea connecting us with others and our own great moments. Thanks Olivia.

    Thank you Olivia and team for bringing Janne to us...and thank you to Janne for being present and sharing her story, her moments and her heart. I came away with more enthusiasm for my own dreams, many more wonderful 'moments' to add to my life kit-bag and a heart overflowing with love for this wonderful world we live in. Truly inspiring.

    BRILLIANT! Janne entertained us with inspiring anecdotes about her motivation, the process and outcomes of asking strangers in many countries to draw a moment of happiness. Our turn to draw and re-live while sharing our moments became a bonding, happiness half hour. Janne relies on the kindness of strangers to provide accommodation, supplies, and other needs, to make her dream - this journey possible; her optimism and experiences makes this sound easy. She then led the group to enthusiastically brainstorm my 'dream' - being employed to travel. Thank you Janne, Thank You Everyone - I returned home with many creative ideas for achieving my fantasy, and, interim employment. xxxxxx
    Thank you Olivia and Antionette for organising (and for the chocolate brownies.)
