What happens when you leave the engineer’s world of logic behind and replace it with intuition, curiosity and wonder? In this TEDx talk, I share what I learned during my 7-month sabbatical from IBM, an adventure that began as a fun jaunt around Europe but turned into an unplanned pilgrimage. In summary: magic can unfold when we learn to trust ourselves, listen to the quiet voices within, and say a hearty ‘Yes’ to our adventure when it calls us.
In October 2016 I gave a talk at Creative Mornings London. Using my experience on a recent three-day solo fast in Colorado, I talked about the natural world, how to find identity within ourselves, and ways to be human in our life and work.
I’ve spoken at Education First’s Career Beyond Borders workshop in London and Manchester. In this promotional video I describe a few mindsets to explore new, fulfilling opportunities in the new world of work: Curiosity, Project, and Experimental.
