  • Be More Calm, Energised & Productive
    Be More Calm, Energised & Productive
    Harriet Waley-Cohen, Speaker and certified coach Recorded: Mar 22 2019 60 mins
    With devices constantly pinging and stealing our attention and flow, and ever increasing demands on our time from all quarters, it can feel hard at times to stay calm, keep your energy up and maximise the use of your time to get everything you want done.

    So often when you ask friends and colleagues how they are, they they snap back that they are 'tired', 'stressed', 'got far too much on to fit into the day' or even 'can't stop to chat, must keep going' usually with a big sigh and a look of slight panic or despair on their face. Instead of being one of those people, wouldn't it be amazing to feel energised, to feel calm and to know how to stay productive so that you feel in control of your professional and personal life?

    Take an hour out and reflect on
    - What eats away at and what creates energy, so that you can feel full of bounce when it matters most to you.
    - Ways to stay calm no matter what, and how to understand triggers and behaviours that destroy your calm.
    - Productivity hacks, including examining whether it really is possible to multitask or whether it's all just a myth.
  • A Global Vision for A Golden Civilization
    A Global Vision for A Golden Civilization
    George Kinder Recorded: Mar 12 2019 111 mins
    Participate in a global visioning exercise. George Kinder, internationally-recognized thought leader and father of the financial Life Planning movement, invites you to Life Plan civilization!
    Imagine a thousand generations in the future where there is a Golden Civilization. What does it look like? Feel Like? How do people communicate, exchange goods, and govern themselves? Bring your wildest ideas and most personal values to a conversation about what could be. Let’s paint a vision of the future and then ask ourselves “How can we live into that vision now?”
    This BrightTALK is one of hundreds of conversations happening globally since the launch of Kinder’s latest book, A Golden Civilization and the Map of Mindfulness (available for pre-order on Amazon now and for purchase March 4, 2019). The grassroots movement of community conversations asks attendees to vision a Golden Civilization and then work to establish it now.
    Be part of the movement that is changing the world one conversation at a time. With George Kinder as the conversation facilitator, you’ll practice inner listening, hear the perspectives of others worldwide, share your own perspective, and together you’ll create a vision statement that captures the kind of future you want for yourselves and your grandchildren. With a clear and energizing vision of a Golden Civilization, Kinder will challenge you and each member of the group to think of how you can live into this vision now. Offering no judgement to the steps participants choose, Kinder values each contribution and demonstrates the art of empathic listening. At the end of the conversation, participants are invited to host their own conversations with friends, family, or any group they represent. More resources are available at www.agoldencivilization.com.
    “Golden Civilizations radiate from the light inside each of us, Delivering freedom and modeling integrity in all things.” – George Kinder, A Golden Civilization and the Map of Mindfulness

    Learn how to move listeners in your next TED Talk, conference, media interview, broadcast. Learn to move readers in your next chapter, paper, book, op-ed, article, or any other venue. Get extra tips and resources for traditionally underrepresented groups so more diverse perspectives are represented in field dialogue. This keynote will help you move people to understand, care about, remember, apply, and tell others about whatever you have discovered.

    Lee Lam, Managing Director, Lee Lam Consultancy Ltd Recorded: Mar 8 2019 39 mins
    Your qualities, strengths and the impact you can have on an organisation can be misunderstood by those around you, leading to frustration on all sides. So why is it that you can see what you are capable of doing, but nobody else can?

    In this talk I describe the different ways that we can contribute to organisations and demonstrate why the current strategies of how to get given the respect and gravitas that you deserve may actually be hampering your chances. Be a leader on your terms and have others recognise and appreciate the impact that you can have, given the opportunity.
  • Inclusion from the Ground Up: Inclusivity in Systems Design and Implementation
    Inclusion from the Ground Up: Inclusivity in Systems Design and Implementation
    Amy McLaughlin, Director of Information Services, Oregon State University Recorded: Mar 7 2019 27 mins
    Many of the systems, processes, and policies organizations rely upon on a daily basis are binary in nature, while the world we live in is non-binary. As a result, despite our best intentions, our organizations are often unwelcoming to potential customers and employees, and reflect unconscious bias.

    This webinar will discuss identifying and recognizing bias in the systems and processes we use every day, and identify strategies for designing systems to be inclusive and welcoming.

    Amy McLaughlin found her professional niche when she integrated her commitment education and inclusion with her passion for information security and technology. A 20+ year veteran of state, local, and federal government and education employment with 15 years of management and leadership experience in information technology, information security and data privacy, she is currently serving as the Director of Information Services for Student Health at Oregon State University. Amy is an ISACA Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) and a CoSN Certified Education Technology Leader (CETL).
