2019 MAIN STAGE PRESENTERS
IRON COWBOY // JAMES LAWERENCE
Get ready for the Iron Cowboy! He is going to share his story at the 24th Annual Event. We have met him, heard him speak, read his book and watched his documentary. His message is going to inspire your team to accomplish the impossible! In 2015 James accomplished the unthinkable despite everyone saying his end goal was impossible. He completed 50 Ironman distance triathlons, in 50 days, in each of the 50 United States -- The 50-50-50.
JOYFUL // INGRID FETELL LEE
Is there a reason that people — regardless of gender, age, culture, or ethnicity — are mesmerized by infants, and can't help but smile when they see a burst of confetti or a cluster of colorful balloons?
We are often taught that our external environment has little or no impact on our inner joy. Increasingly, experts urge us to find balance and calm by looking inward — through mindfulness or meditation — and muting the outside world. But what if the natural vibrancy of our surroundings is actually our most renewable and easily accessible joy?
In Joyful, designer Ingrid Fetell Lee explores how the mundane spaces and objects we interact with every day have surprising and powerful effects on our mood. Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology, she explains why one place makes us feel anxious or competitive, while another fosters delight and sharing — and, most importantly, she reveals how we can harness the power of our surroundings to live fuller, healthier, and truly joyful lives.
