Session: The Power of Positivity
Description: Imagine discovering superpowers that you never realized you had. Jamie will be sharing real-world techniques, tools, and thoughts to help bring to light, those incredible abilities that lie within all of us. Utilizing the power of positivity, and a touch of magic, Jamie will share secrets that he has used for decades to maximise the joy and wonder in our day-to-day experiences and interactions. Far from abstract ideas, specific actions will be offered as a way to achieve the goal of not walking away a superhero, but rather as one who has the power to create superheroes at will. We will be starting with everyone in the room.
