David Rendall - The Freak Factor: Discovering Uniqueness by Flaunting Weakness
18:00 - 22:00
'What makes us Weird makes us Wonderful, What makes us Weak makes us Strong'
Our parents, teachers and managers have told us that, if we want to succeed, we should find and fix our weaknesses. However, most of us never make much progress trying to eliminate our worst traits. In fact, our weaknesses are actually the best clue to our strengths. In this funny and counter-intuitive talk, David shows how to find happiness, personal fulfillment and business success by starting with weaknesses - and embracing them rather than trying to deny them.
