Serious Waffle Session: Rethinking Thinking

Brussels: 21 February 2017

The way you think can have profound implications in how you perceive the world, how you feel about yourself and your capabilities. How you think determines how you solve problems, how you interact with others and how you succeed.

In this Serious Waffle Session, three experts will each teach you something new (and ideally three new things) about how to think differently in ways that will make your life better.

The 3 Speakers:

Erin Meyer

Creating Your Future History: D-Day Lessons for Every Day by Erin Meyer

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.

About Erin

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.

 

Tom Meyers

Reaset or not to reaset that is the question? by Tom Meyers

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.

About Tom

Tom is an osteopath, stress coach and visionary in the field of health and wellbeing. He runs a private health practice and gives presentations on the topic of ‘Stress’ and workshops on the ‘Reaset Approach’, a novel manual body-mind and educational health approach he developed. Currently he’s writing his first self-help book in which he interlaces soul-purpose, personal development, health and healing into a compelling self-help guide to thrive.  http://www.biomotions.com/Reaset.html
