Hélio Vogas comes across as ‘just another guy’ or ‘that guy next door’. He is anything but!
Over the years, Hélio Vogas, a businessman, martial arts expert, and extreme sports enthusiast, has attended numerous conferences and motivational talks. Yet he felt that something was missing. In fact, Hélio Vogas realised that, in many cases, audiences left the auditorium without any clear idea of how to implement what they had just learned. He aimed to change that.
Instead of standing behind a podium and lecturing his audiences, using PowerPoint slides to get his point across, Hélio Vogas uses people in his audiences to demonstrate his message. This he does by means of dynamic activities and constant interaction, with him very often leaving the stage and walking amongst his audience members. What is more, the advice he gives is actionable, and can easily be implemented by all. Do not be surprised if he uses his experience gained from his business life, martial arts, and extreme competitive sports to give his audience business insights. Sword demonstrations and fire displays are par for the course and get the adrenaline pumping.
But Hélio Vogas is not only a showman, he is a ‘tell-man’ as well, using science-backed and business-proven tips and strategies, and his background in accelerated learning to give his audiences a motivational talk that leaves them with the tools needed to become more effective – in a way they will never forget.
Besides running his business and addressing audiences from across the globe, Hélio Vogas is the author of the well-received ‘Cracking the Discipline Code: A Step-by-Step Guide to create Habits That Stick’.
Coming from a middle-class background, Hélio Vogas, as a speaker, is someone easy to relate to. He has built two successful businesses and is dedicated to helping others succeed without going through the painful learning curve he has had to go through. Amongst his audiences, he counts various TEDx conferences, the United Nations headquarters, and Fortune 500 company executives. He is equally conversant in both English and Portuguese.
