He has a fantastic story and valuable lessons to share with this world.

-Audience member, TEDx Maastricht Netherlands
"The first time I saw someone swallow a sword was on the TEDx BrainTrain
from Amsterdam to Maastricht. It was Dan Meyer who told us the story of his life.
That story was so authentic and touching
that I did not even expect any sword-act at all.
In a way it was no act.
Swallowing the sword was just proof of his honest engagement and willpower.
Everyone in that train was moved by his story.
The next day, the ENTIRE TEDx Maastricht audience was moved by his story
and responded by giving him a STANDING OVATION!
BEST SPEAKER of the DAY! AMAZING!"
-Jean-Paul Toonen, Organizer, TEDxBrainTrain Amsterdam-Maastricht Netherlands
