The talk


Is it possible to change your thoughts and see possibilities rather than limitations? Is it possible to change perspective on your life’s greatest problems? This is what Morten Bonde discusses in his talk Sentenced to Blindness – Now What?

Morten Bonde is a skilled senior art director with twenty years of experience developing advertising campaigns for brands in Denmark and abroad. He’s worked with both large and small companies and most recently as a storyteller for the LEGO Group. Oh, and he’s legally blind!


Now Morten shares his own personal story. He has an incurable eye disease, causing him to slowly lose his sight. In 2016, his vision was so severely reduced that his life couldn’t continue as before. His whole world collapsed. With research into the human mind, the practice of mindfulness behavior and meditation and four challenges in four months to reprogram his subconscious mind, he shares how he decided to grow bigger than his greatest life-challenge. BLINDNESS!

”I found a process that turned my fading vision into clarity. I turned a weakness into a strength. That process can be copied by anyone for any challenge in life”.


Morten’s talk Is not only life-affirming and honest – but also fun! It causes one to reflect on one’s own choices in life and the awareness that “one is a captain on his own boat”. Morten is a really good communicator who manages to get his personal story out in a way that it speaks directly into each of us.

“At our GI-Networks / Dustin seminar yesterday, we had decided to finish the academic part, with a lecture by Morten Bonde, who is Senior Art Director at LEGO. Morten is slowly becoming blind and has for several years lived with tunnel vision. Morten shares – in his unique lecture – how he moved from Hopelessness Street to Possibility Road. This was simply the best – most fun and touching – lecture I have heard to date. I can highly recommend Morten’s lecture “.

An amazing lecture/presentation by a rather amazing individual – Morten Bonde. Take the chance to gain some perspective and learn about the human mind, body and spirit, and what it is capable of. I highly recommend seeing Morten Bonde – such an inspiration.
