If you have ever struggled to find restful rhythms in your work, year and life portfolio, this is an event that could possibly change your life! The emphasis in this session will be on practical tips to make the temporal transition to a fuller life. We will be joined by:
Alex Soojung-Kim Pang - joining us by telepresence robot Alex is a Silicon Valley-based author and futurist. His latest book, “Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less” blends neuroscience, psychology, and history to uncover the hidden role that rest and mind-wandering play in stimulating creative insight and sustaining creative lives. His previous book “The Distraction Addiction” shows how we can use information technologies to be more focused and mindful, rather than perpetually distracted. Alex has worked as a technology forecaster and futurist at Institute for the Future and Strategic Business Insights, and has consulted on projects for startups, Fortune 100 companies, and government agencies. He has a Ph.D. in the history and sociology of science from the University of Pennsylvania and is a visiting scholar at Stanford University.
Emily Emanuel - with us in person Over the last couple of years, Emily Emanuel has been researching and teaching on the Hebraic calendar and its significance to our daily lives. After visiting Israel 4 years ago and reconnecting with her Jewish heritage, she began to find patterns in her daily life that mirrored the seasons of the Jewish calendar. As Emily shared her findings with those around her, to their surprise, similar Hebraic annual rhythms emerged. She has since developed a passion for teaching others to understand the different months and seasons of the Hebraic annual cycle and how we can obtain a healthy rhythm of life by recognising them.
Lord Nat Wei - in person Nat will also say a few words about how he has managed to juggle family life with 11 advisory and board positions, whilst playing a role as Parliamentarian, and in multiple charities and projects, learning from much failure, but based on a portfolio formula that he is keen to share with other generations trying to make a living whilst having time for what matters. It is going to be a veritable tardis of an evening, full of discussion, insights, and historical leaps focussing on how we can not only save time, but make every second of our lives truly count.
Space is limited so please reserve a place here.
