CHAOS, CHANCE & INJUSTICE
We can be anything we want to be if we dream and want it badly enough. Said everybody. All of the time. The evolution of our culture’s image of the perfect self is now scored and rated by peers and governments alike. It accompanies the foolish idea that people who are successful are happy and people who are happy are successful. Neither of those things hold. Geoff will show you how clever leaders leverage tribal propaganda but do so from a safe distance. And how those leaders create a psychic mould that businesses expand into, and beyond.
