On Tuesday night, Tony Robbins, an American author, philanthropist, and world-class life coach greeted a mixed audience in Dubai.
One-half extremely hyped, (some had flown into town just for this show) the other half dubious over what ‘Mr. Motivator’ could achieve in four hours… but all eager to participate in what was to come.
The highly-anticipated event also saw speeches by Nick Vujicic, Prince EA and Alicia Keys and it was attended by Dubai royals, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and HH Sheikh Hamdan Crown Prince of Dubai.
But it wasn’t the royal guests, that stirred the 11,000 strong crowds at the Coca-Cola Arena last night.

Not everyone who entered the auditorium last night expected to be moved but his speech inspired positive change
Tony’s technique takes you out of your comfort zone; methods involving complete audience participation had thousands of people hugging strangers like long-lost-friends or a simple 1-minute body exercise that taught the audience the incredible power of mindset.
Flashing lights and booming sounds; the venue was like a mini-rave at points with people bouncing off their feet, but there were reflective moments too and too many ‘aha’ moments to remember, making you wish you had the whole thing on record.

These are words that everyone needs to hear
Tony Robbins has worked with US Presidents, world-leaders and people on the brink of suicide. And to an audience of professionals, (many of last night’s attendees were business-owners) in a moment where grumblings of an economic down-turn are plaguing a number of major economies in the EU and the States, Tony Robbins matter-of-fact belief that life is all about mindset, how economies will dip and fall is a matter of life but it’s how you deal with the outcome is what makes you a winner, are the words that everyone needed to hear.
