How to Find Peace in the Chaos of the Modern World
‘On Wednesday March 3rd at 7.00pm(GMT), challenge participants can join Niall for a live keynote talk, entitled ‘How to Find Peace in the Chaos of the Modern World’.
The talk, although tackling a difficult subject, uses an irreverent and very human tone. The aim is to take the listener out of work mode and into a space where they feel empowered by another person's vulnerability. To achieve this, Niall uses his own story as context. And throughout the first half of his talk, he talks about his own journey and how his inability to deal with his own mental health struggles led to his sabotaging his relationships and careers.
The objective of his talk however is to leave attendees feeling empowered and armed with some practical and useful information and tools that can help them better become guardians of their own minds, in the chaos of the modern world.
