More Human More Often Connecting After a Pandemic - Stuart Knight
In this presentation, Stuart takes an even deeper dive into the science of human connection and how it is the number one factor to organizational success and personal well being. For decades the world has been experiencing a crisis in human connection and it's been the root cause of every challenge faxed by humanity. On a macro level, it has created international conflicts, national divisiveness and community breakdown. Individually our connection from each other is behind a wide range of physical and mental ailments including chronic pain, anxiety, depression, greater stress and so much more. Organizationally, meaningful human connection is the biggest influencer on productivity, collaboration, innovation, absenteeism, equity, inclusion and diversity.
In the latest keynote, Stuart provides a scientifically backed "wake up call" for people ready to harness the power of personal relationships as a true path to success and happiness. In this hilarious, entertaining and deeply thought provoking presentation Stuart unveils the elephant in the room we all knew was there but didn't know how to see.
By incorporating meaningful human connection into your everyday culture and promoting powerful conversations amongst your team, Stuart will help you reach your goals while changing the world.
