You Are What You Think

The Meeting of the Minds #2

Date: September 4, 2018
We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.
- Anais Nin
Our thoughts and perceptions shape who are we are and how we experience the world, but how often do we question our own opinions and impressions? Join us  to hear three perspectives and a panel discussion on the topic of better thinking for better living.

You Are What You Think

Geoff is a speaker and critical thinking advocate who believes that we can change our thinking not only to defend against misinformation, but also to live deeper and more fulfilling lives. He will speak about how we can alter our perception to reach new levels of success and understanding.

Amanda Chalupa, MSc, PhD Candidate, Cultural Psychiatry

Staying Sane as a Disrupter

What happens when our game-changing vision meets "the way things have always been done"? For a decade, I have developed a disruptive line of work by thinking critically about what matters to me, the research world, and society more broadly. In this presentation, I will explain what made it possible to do so, why it matters more than ever, and how to stay (mostly) sane throughout the process.

Richard Goulet, Business Coach

Benevolent and Creative Thinking

Formerly a lawyer and an accountant, Richard realized he had to follow his heart and create and walk his own road. Not only for himself, but also to help people find their own truth. He will speak about how to become better people, not only do we need to develop our critical thinking, but also our creative and benevolent thinking. Being creative to innovate, and being benevolent to connect.

The Meeting of the Minds #1

Date: July 15, 2018
A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes
- Jonathan Swift
It is said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions because good intentions mixed with bad information often lead to harmful results. For the sake of ourselves, and the people that we care about, we must defend against the spread of misinformation, and create a world that values accuracy, honesty and open discussion. Join us for a fun and stimulating evening devoted to the topic of free and clear thinking with three expert speakers in the fields of critical thinking, health and medicine, and personal development.
