Thank You Rona

This last year didn’t go as any of us planned. Covid took a lot from us. Job opportunities. Graduations. Motives. And mainly our mental headspace. It wasn’t all bad though. Covid allowed us to look inwards, take away distractions and find new ways to connect with people while innovating the way we worked and studied. In this talk, explore the Covid-19 & I, stories of several young pioneers as we learn how to move on from covid-19 onto a new dawn of self-acceptance.

You Can Always Change

Starting at 1.50pm

Main Stage

You Can Always Change
You Can Always Change

The human brain is an amazing piece of machine that we haven't yet fully got a hold off. We often used the words 'I can't change who I am' but what if we are more adaptable than we think we are. WE are not stuck or defined by our past experiences and in this fire-side chat, we go into details with a neuroscientist and a fighter to explore how we can trick our minds to help us get more out of life.

Keynote Talk

Main Stage

Starting at 3.05pm

Living In A Hybrid World: What Does It Mean Now?
Living In A Hybrid World: What Does It Mean Now?

The world is different now. We live in a hybrid world. Our lives have changed radically. And after the past year and a half we’ve had, getting “back to normal life” can seem like a lot. We’ve built new routines and habits to make sense of remote living. With uncertainty still on the table, it can be terrifying to think that we need to rush back into what was. Uncover what it means to live in this new hybrid world with change agent, Hayley Mulenda in this powerful keynote.
