LYSA MORRISON
PERFORMANCE

Lysa’s talk will help us understand why we see the world so differently from each other in many instances. How our different perceptions of the same data creates different subjective versions of reality and how these differing realities have a profound impact on how we think, feel and behave.

Armed with this new understanding of how we perceive the world, Lysa will show us what can we do differently to ensure we understand each other better and act in ways that creates compassion and community instead of conflict? This talk will take its participants on a whirlwind journey that explores why some people just seem to ‘wind us up’ or ‘push our buttons’ and what we can do about this to create meaningful relationships that can lead ourselves and others to achieve great things!

EMBRACING CONFLICT: WHY LEAVING THE "ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM" CAN BE SO DAMAGING TO CHANGE INITATIVES
 

KEYNOTE

Ever been in a meeting where a key decision needs to be made and despite reservations around the room everyone just agrees with the boss! 

It's more common a situation than you think and sadly it is the result of our fear and discomfort with our ability to handle confrontation.

SAM CONNIFF
UNCERTAINTY

Burnout is at an all-time high, resilience is at an all-time low, and our intolerance for uncertainty is at the heart of it all. But uncertainty has also been humanities greatest driver of creativity and innovation, we just need to know how to use it and the Uncertainty Experts can show you how.

 

From smugglers turned trauma specialists to refugees turned CEOs to addicts turned activists, these are lessons learned in overcoming uncertainty taught in the shadows and applied to everyday life.

 

Uncertainty Experts is a groundbreaking world's first: part documentary, part online course, part psychological intervention, scientifically proven by researchers from UCL's Brain Sciences Laboratory to increase Uncertainty Tolerance (and therefore boost creativity, empathy and decision making skills).

 

This interactive session is both an insight into how revolutionary ideas can be borne from uncertainty, and key insights, results and takeaways from the experiment itself.

LOU BANKS
LEARNING FROM REGRET

LOU PIC_edited.jpg

Regret isn’t one of the most celebrated emotions we experience, and many people talk about having ‘no regrets’, and reflecting on it as something that is bad or wrong.

Lou's session will show us how we can reframe the concept of regret to put us in the mindset of learning from the past and seeing regrets as opportunities rather than negative experiences. In doing so we can reshape our future to one where we thrive, and become more available and present to what is around us, in both our personal and professional lives. 

Lou's session will not only change the way you view regrets and challenge you own barriers, but also allow you to push past fears that may be holding you back in the future and maybe take that leap of faith that could become life changing!
