“Thijs Launspach is a worthy addition to DK Festival. His area of expertise - mental health in time of crisis - sent a universal message of dealing with stress head-on and avoiding burn-out so as not to let the current crisis drown us out. Thijs really knocked it out of the park and reminded us why mental health should always be our top priority in life, especially when circumstances are as uncertain as they are today. We could not be happier with his amazing talk, wise words and irresistible charm that made us all realise that a stress-free life is something we should all strive for all the time. “ Dunja Ivana Ballon, DK Festival, Croatia
