"YOU ARE MORE THAN YOUR JOB TITLE"
Elon Musk says in the future, human jobs will be taken over by intelligent machines. But a loss of income won’t be humanity’s biggest problem. We will be faced with an existential crisis where we lose our sense of value and worth because most people derive their purpose from their occupation.
This keynote helps you find your purpose in life beyond your occupation. It helps you discover all of who you are and how you can proudly, completely and boldly bring this to any table you take a seat at, in its fullness to influence the world you live in as you maintain your focal point and remember who you are and why you are here.
