Sage or Saboteur? Mental Fitness in the Time of Covid
Mental Fitness is a measure of the strength of your positive mental muscles (Sage) versus the negative (Saboteur). Saboteurs react to challenges in ways that generate negative emotions such as stress, disappointment, self-doubt, regret, anger, shame, guilt, or worry. Your Sage handles challenges through positive emotions like empathy, gratitude, curiosity, creativity, self-confidence, and calm, clear-headed, laser-focused action.The relative strength of your positive Sage versus negative Saboteurs is called PQ (Positive Intelligence Quotient). PQ is the measure of your Mental Fitness. It's the best predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform relative to your potential. You can boost your PQ significantly with practice.

I'll help you: 1) brainstorm & develop start-up ideas, 2) design & implement work packages around your ideas with the goal of finding Product-Market Fit, 3) to raise funding (including potentially investing myself). Through this room, my goal is to help more academics develop entrepreneurial skills & successfully launch companies of their own.
Next Level Networkers Learn & Support Group
Networking is the most vital marketing tool we've got, as it creates accelerated word of mouth. Everyone wants more clients. Everyone knows about networking. But is it working for you? If not, why not? 30% of executives land their dream jobs through direct referrals, and 30% more jobs are never advertised. I've guided entrepreneurs to 12x their businesses simply through networking. That doesn't mean I've got all the answers. All I'm saying is let's get together and LEARN. Let's forget what we think we know about networking and (re)discover the real art of networking. Let's do this together. This is a perfect opportunity for entrepreneurs who are ready to learn and build authentic connections to grow their businesses; academics who are ready to discuss and redefine what networking looks like. Join the conversation to network and build meaningful relationships, get real results and have fun in the process.

Blockchain technology has changed how we think about finance and money, and more generally, ownership and allocation problems. This room introduces concepts in and around the blockchain space and explores how blockchain as a technology can be and is being disruptive to various industries. Blockchain is a disruptive technology, so it would be helpful for the community to have a broader understanding of the space.

From an industry perspective, multi-sided marketplaces and platforms that use blockchain technology have exploded over the last year. Ledgers are everywhere. This is a fantastic opportunity for academics and industry members curious about blockchain and blockchain product development. Gain a better understanding of blockchain systems, product development and token economies. Discover which problems can and can't be solved using blockchains and smart contracts.

Introvert & Alignment Coach
The ‘Quietly Determined’ in the workplace
I am naturally a more introverted individual, so when I worked in a fast-paced London city firm for over 10years, my introversion took a battering, and eventually I reached burnout. But I have now learnt how to embrace my introverted strengths and to thrive, MY WAY. As a result, I help others to do the same. Therefore, my Room is aimed more towards introverted individuals who may have concerns about managing their needs or being at their best in a working world where extroversion seems to prevail! Session 4 - How to work with different personality styles, especially more extroverted individuals, in the workplace!
