Keynote: The Future Looks Bright: The Power of cultivating a Growth Mindset

The world has certainly changed over the past twelve to eighteen months. We have moved to a work from home (or live at work) culture. Our relationships have changed, our communications have changed, and our activities have largely moved online. For many the learning curve has been steep, and for some, almost impossible.

As we continue to evolve, how can we keep Toastmasters at the forefront of this change? Join Bret Freeman for this interactive and educational session where he will discuss how adopting a growth mindset across our clubs can keep them vibrant and flourishing regardless of what is down the road.

You will come away from this session with tools and techniques to not only foster a growth mindset for yourself but learn to model this outlook for all with whom you interact. You will discover the Neuroscience behind this mindset and how we can all be more “brain friendly” in our interactions.
