What will you do the day before you die?

If you could predict how you would feel at the end of your life, what would it change in how you act today?

British film-maker Patrick Ney survived a brutal attack in Warsaw, Poland.

In this moving, emotional talk, you will learn how coming close to death can help you live your life in a better, more peaceful way.

Patrick Ney creates provocative films and documentaries about Poland, his new-found home. His films have had over 30 million views in 2 years. Paddy Ney is a British filmmaker living and working in Warsaw. He moved to Poland in 2010 and since then has been creating provocative, moving films about his new homeland’s culture and history. His films have been viewed over 26,000,000 times in the past 2 years alone. He specialises in short-form, social media content. In his day job, Paddy is Director at digital marketing agency James Cook Media. He is also the host of HiCashWeek, a weekly Polish-language business and entrepreneurship show for dynamic young Poles. “I have a simple test for what I’m doing,” he says, “it’s whether I can look my daughter in the eye and think, yes, this is making the world she’ll inherit a slightly better place.” Paddy regularly tours schools in Poland talking to young people about immigration, relationships and purpose and is a Friend and proud supporter of the Czerwone Noski charity. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
