Instructor Biography

Harald Lepisk, International Speaker and Trainer at Victory Trainings

I believe that we deserve to live a life that is meaningful, exciting, positive, that engages our best talents and drives us to create something awesome. My calling is to empower people to create their amazing lives.

As an international speaker and trainer I love to inspire people to dream and take action. I love to touch their hearts as videographer and creator.

The coolest job in the world

Is being an entrepreneur. Ever since I was a young boy, I realized that you can do what you love and make a good living out of it. I started out as a DJ, developed my sound equipment rental business, co-started an online DJ equipment store. I used the money I got to finance my university studies, during which I started the training company Victory Trainings that has helped me to inspire tens of thousands of people around Europe.

My job description: "inspire people"

My work as a trainer is to empower people to tap their creative potential and uplift them to get excited about their lives. I am often invited to give inspirational speeches, moderate conferences, deliver idea development workshops and personal development seminars. I have had the pleasure to work with about 600 groups in 12 countries around Europe.

Every problem is an opportunity to create. I love to create.

Whenever I feel that something important is missing, I create it. Could not find a good resource for inspiration and personal development - created the Estonian Inspiration portal. Fell in love with storytelling - created the Storyteller web app. Saw that too many youngsters could not find "their thing" - created the Passionfinder web app.

Surround yourself with positively charged people

From an early age, I surrounded myself with active people in Junior Chamber International. I got so excited that I managed the development of mentorship programme for hundreds of members, lead a team of nearly 100 certified trainers and served as a president at local chapter.

Enthusiasm and inspiration based on solid and systematic wisdom

I attained an MBA degree in Entrepreneurship and Technology Management, specializing in Entrepreneurship pedagogy. Before that I did my BA in Entrepreneurship Economics and Applied Psychology in Tartu University. My main area of research was creativity in organizations and developing creative mindset and skills through trainings.

Why am I here at Udemy? I am here to serve. I have experimented and developed techniques and concepts that help us to find more love and excitement in what we do. And it is my deepest obligation to share that with the world.
