Oh hello you big kid!
Have you almost forgotten how to think like a child? This talk, from the pretty flipping impressive Paul Lindley will show us that the key to unlocking our personal potential is not by learning new skills, but by rediscovering old ones, ones we all had when we were toddlers. Paul will invite us to grow down and as we do so he’ll open up the world of imagination, free thinking and self confidence that was once the way we rolled.
His talk will remind us that it’s not the big and powerful who should inspire us, but the small and young – those uncorrupted by convention and routine. In thinking like a toddler again, we can find those little wins, small things that end up making big differences to our lives.
Paul Lindley is an award winning British entrepreneur, social campaigner and best-selling author. In 2006 he founded Ella’s Kitchen, an innovative brand of organic baby food built on a core social mission. It’s now the UK’s largest and has sales of over $100M from across 40 countries. In 2014 he co-founded The Key is E, supporting African entrepreneurs whose social businesses benefit children. If you're not already feeling a bit like this guy might have done enough, this year he published his first book: ‘Little Wins: The Huge Power of Thinking Like a Toddler’.
As well as all of that he is a trustee of Sesame Workshop, creators of Sesame Street who help kids be smarter, stronger and kinder. And a director of Bite the Ballot, who seek to ensure young people have a voice in society, and advises social enterprise Toast Ale, and Robert F Kennedy Human Rights in the UK. Paul believes the best businesses make profits AND have a core purpose to do social good.
And on top of this great talk we'll be doing our usual: mass singalongs to some of our favourite power ballads, an awesome spoken word artist, hearing a story from a member of our community and drinking a vat of tea afterwards!
We're excited to see you there!
