Cedric says, â€œIn my talks I examine questions such as: Why are some people more willing to take risks than others? Why do some constantly push the envelope of what is possible? What is â€œFlowâ€ and how can I achieve it? I talk about confronting fears and overcoming them, getting out of your comfort zone and how to survive in high-pressure environments, and taking educated risks, because when you stop taking risks, you stop living lifeâ€.
In his keynote speeches he brings the state of high consciousness, high productivity and hyper- awareness from the extreme environment to the mainstream environment.
