Sometimes the way we think prevents us from accomplishing goals, coping with stress, being creative or just living a great life! In this Serious Waffle Session, three experts (and a supporting violinist or two) will each have 15 minutes to teach you something (and ideally three things) new about how rethinking thinking can lead to a better life. Join us, learn about yourself and have a great evening!
How can an event that happened 70+ years ago teach you valuable lessons for today’s unpredictable world? To thrive in the coming years you must prepare for an unknown future using skills and technology not yet developed to meet challenges not yet defined. Sound impossible? The Allied landing in Normandy, France on June 6, 1944 exemplifies how to achieve something when nothing in your current circumstances says it’s possible.
The past is a roadmap to navigate today.
Weaving together degrees in WWII history and cultural anthropology with visual and spoken arts, I use the past as a portal to address today’s challenges in innovation and leadership. Currently creating a visual art book on the lessons of D-Day, I speak on platforms around the world about how our understanding of the past influences the future history we create today.
When humankind first walked this earth it adapted itself to the environment until it saw the light and started to adapt its environment to its needs. However, in recent years technology has allowed us to modify our environment so effectively that our environment changes at a higher rate than we can cope with. The engendered conflict is the main cause of stress and 90% of all diseases.
The return of ease is now or never, your life depends on it.
