Dr. John Demartini, the noted educator, business consultant, author and founder of the Demartini Institute based in Houston, is no stranger to overcoming adversity. Like many members of today’s youth, he found himself in trouble academically and legally, with seeming no chance of bettering himself. Now a globally renowned inspirational speaker, Demartini, who was featured in the acclaimed book and video motivational series The Secret, is presenting his acclaimed program, “Activate Your Unique Genius”, on Wednesday, May 6 at the Hyatt Regency Coral Gables in Miami. This talk is open to the public.

“Activate Your Unique Genius” is one of the several targeted presentations that Demartini has incorporated into the trademarked Demartini Method, a curriculum that focuses on empowering individuals and organizations as well as contributing to transforming both micro- and macro-social dynamics around the world. Demartini, considered one of the world’s leading authorities on human behavior and personal development, has conducted thousands of public talks based on these modules all over the globe.

“When I was 17 years old, I was introduced to a man who inspired me and told me that I could be a genius. I was a high school dropout and I didn’t even know at that time how to read, but his certainty in my ability made me believe that I could be intelligent,” Demartini said. “There are certain principles that can be applied to activate genius and there is no reason why you can’t activate that for yourself. In this talk, I will be showing you how to unlock amazing innovation and genius inside of you and how to handle great challenges.”

Demartini is the author of 40 books published in over 29 different languages. He has produced over 60 CDs and DVDs covering subjects such as development in relationships, wealth, education and business.

“Activate Your Unique Genius” will be held on May 6 at the Hyatt Regency Coral Gables located at 50 Alhambra Plaza, Coral Gables, Miami, FL 33134. Registration commences at 6:30 p.m. The talk, including a question-and-answer session, is from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.Tickets to the event can be purchased beforehand for $35; tickets purchased at the door are $45.
