Swen is extremely funny. 

Those that know Swen, know he usually has a good joke or humorous story to share. When he’s on stage he doesn’t lose a step. In fact, he kicks it up a notch because, well, he’s a ham. Swen was a Laker so, if you are a Boston Celtics fan, get ready for just a little ribbing. You’re going to hear how being seven-feet tall isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

People relate to Swen.

Through comedy and levity, Swen has a way of opening the hearts of people. Although he’s seven-feet tall and played at the highest level of his sport, he is down to earth and understands where people are in their journey toward self development. Swen meets them right there, takes their hand, and says, “If I can do it, you can do it.” So after the meeting, don’t be surprised when some with teary eyes come up to Swen and say, “How did you know I was here? That’s exactly what I needed.” Swen relates to people on a personal level.

Swen achieved the highest level of his profession, against all odds.

He didn’t make his high school basketball team and didn’t start one college game. Yet, he made it to the NBA. But he didn’t just make professional basketball; he excelled. His INCREDIBLE STORY, from being born in the Netherlands to the NBA, is a must hear.
