TEDx: What would you do differently if you had three weeks to live?

Speaking at TEDxDalt Vila Ibiza about life lessons after being told I would not survive longer than three weeks.

My TED talk at Dalt Vila Ibiza event is about the miraculous and extraordinary story of what happened when I went through brain cancer and recovered against the odds. I talk about the major life lessons I learnt when my life was under threat. The talk is now available to watch on YouTube.

I share my story of what I learnt when I was told I had just Three Weeks left of life.

Here are some reactions from people in the theatre watching the performance live:

Something massively changed for me at Ibiza’s first ever TEDx Conference last week.

It was my perspective on what founders, CEO’s and leaders should prioritise.

Here’s what the day involved: 18 speakers, 9 different native languages

Ideas on optimal: business, future, climate, sex, health, relationships, healing, tech

One of these talks stood out the most to me.  It was this one:

“If you had 3 weeks to live, what would you do differently?” by Susie Pearl.

Susie really DID have 3 weeks to live.

In 2018 she was diagnosed with brain cancer.

So, what did she do?

She snuck out of her hospital room to get a manicure…

But she also did something remarkable.

She created a vision of her and her friends on the beach in Ibiza.

People told her she was crazy.

That it wasn’t possible.

But she told them she wouldn’t listen to their negativity: that negativity was banned.

Needless to say, her vision came true and she is here in Ibiza years later to tell the story.

Susie Pearl’s talk on “If you had 3 weeks to live, what would you do differently?” is a powerful reminder that we should not take our time for granted and that we should pursue our dreams and goals, no matter how impossible they may seem.
