In 1996 I was injured and lost my sight in an accident with explosives. Although I had many excuses to give up on life, I decided to continue finding my way. All that without limiting myself to thinking what is or what is not possible.
Based on my own experience I speak about how we can create opportunities from the means we actually have.
To reach our goals it does not always have to be the way we normally imagine. Maybe we do not try because we are afraid of losing or failing. But right in the moment of a challenge there is always a way to be found.
My lectures are for any groups that like to get inspired and motivated. I speak at companies, be it for directors, employees, students or organisations. My music is also a part of my presentations.
"Rickard has a family today, has traveld alone in many places such as Asia and South America."
Although Rickard is visually impaired, he invites us to discover things our eyes normally do not allow us to see. To reach our goals and to achieve what we want does not always have to be the way we normaly imagine. Rickard inspires you to see further and leads you to discover your real abilities. Placing himself as an example he guides you to selfawareness and shows how you can progress forward even when the goal seems to have been lost.
Rickard teaches us how we can create opportunities with the means we actually have. Often we are not aware of them or dont consider them helpful. For example: How can you play the guitar if you only have four fingers? and is it possible to travel to India even if you are blind? .
The presentations are 30 minutes to 3 hours long and are made to suit the requests and needs of the coustomer.

The guitar, a plumbers tape and how I continued playing.
"They say Do not give up and keep on trying... But I say You do give up. You give up many times. But then, you keep on trying."
Music can be experienced in many ways. My desire is that you - the listener - can enjoy it in the very moment, as it all comes through me just like that. My experience is how creativity can continue to be expressed even if it doesnt seem it is possible, just in ways you did not see yet.
“Rickard shows us what is possible to achieve and how we can learn so much more about ourselves. A very inspiring message and even the dramatic part in the story when he brings a great deal of humor into it”
"A very touching story but most of all the inspiring message of what we can achieve with the power of wil.l"
“If you ask me what is will power, I will show you Rickards story. Listening to his speech made realize how much I can do. How able I am and what potential is hiding within me.”
„In March 2018 Rickard was the Keynote speaker in one my events. Words fail to describe the impact he made on the audience. A mixture of words, music and silence all drenched by the feelings of the experience he made as boy. His presentation helped the audience to introspect on what is important, to value and change their lives for the better.
I very much recommend Rickard as a speaker. „
"Rickard has a family today, traveled to countries in Asia and South America. He runs his business with the goal of inspiring and sharing his experience. This all is there to show us what we really can accomplish when we start using the abilities that are dormant within ourselves."
