Achim Nowak is an author, speaker, C-Suite coach, and international authority on personal presence. In his new book "The Moment: A Practical Guide to Creating a Mindful Life in a Distracted World" (New Page Books), Achim introduces readers to 4 deliciously simple keys that instantly elevate our experience of any moment.
Achim has been featured on 60 Minutes, NPR, Fox News, and in The Miami Herald. He has received a PEN Syndicated Fiction Award for his writing, and his work for the Shimon Peres Centre for Peace was captured in the award-winning documentary "The Last Enemy."
Achim has a checkered past. That is one of his finer assets.
It includes training performers at The Actors Institute in Manhattan, spending a decade on the faculty of New York University, leading transformational AIDS Mastery retreats in church basements and community centers throughout North America, and disappearing to the island of Tobago for a year. In Tobago Achim windsurfed everyday and explored the art of doing nothing.
