Session VII: José Antonio Morales, 20. May, 18.00-19.30 pm

José Antonio Morales

Building Our Next Civilization

We are excited to welcome on May 20th José Antonio Morales. In this lecture, he will share a perspective on building the next version of our civilization: A civilization built on top of freedom, not fear. I believe entrepreneurship is the fuel and responsible business practices are the method.

Since the beginning of our civilization, we have been fighting against real and imaginary threats. Our noble purpose, protecting our communities and supporting their progress. We built defensive societies, ready to harbor cultures of privilege, exploitation, and discrimination. We invented business.

Today we intuit that the old system doesn’t work for us anymore. We see the cracks in our modern societies, and many of us want to take action.

We want to build a new system, new foundations. We want the progress we have achieved so far to reach every corner of the planet. We want to live meaningful lives despite our weaknesses; we want to be accepted. We know we can live in harmony with nature, and we know we must.

Are you one of those who want to take action and build a better world? Can your entrepreneurial spirit empower you and inspire others to create the next level of human society?

Session VI: Kamil Barbarski, Search Inside Yourself, 18. May 11.00-12.30 pm

Kamil is an entrepreneur, agile coach and innovation facilitator as well as a Certified Teacher for Google’s “Search Inside Yourself” program. He works as a bridge-builder between “creating impact / new business” and “being human / people & culture”. To connect these two worlds he creates innovative experiences that meaningfully transform people, organizations and markets.

On the 18th of May, we welcome Kamil Barbarski for our Food for Thought lecture.

By now, most people realize that openness, collaboration and sometimes even failure, are necessary to enable innovation. However, it is difficult to integrate this into everyday life, because up to 90% of our behavior is determined by unconscious habits and emotions. Through emotional agility and mindfulness we can cultivate the awareness of these inner processes and the openness to change them (Capgemini, Emotional Intelligence Report, 2019). Search Inside Yourself takes an evidence-based approach combining neuroscience, attention-training and emotional intelligence. The program provides practical tools that can be applied immediately in life or at work and allow for deep transformations through accessible and practical content.

Join us for a transformative session with Kamil where you will get a first taste of the SIY program.
