12:00pm [12:40pm] TED TALKS TUESDAYS Letting Go of Pain
In a rare opportunity, WORK_SPACE is happy to host, TedX speaker, Dr. Bridget Cooper, at our May event. We will watch her video presentation on “The Secret to Making Life Hurt Less” and then get to ask her questions on the content of her talk, and the experience of preparing and presenting a Ted Talk. Bring your lunch and business cards as this is a great opportunity to network with other professionals. WORK_SPACE will provide drinks and dessert (we'll be celebrating May birthday's with cake). Dr. Bridget rattles cages. A self-described change-agent and thought-shifter, 'Dr. B.' helps people transform their perceptions about pain in order to redefine and address their problems. 'When we get hurt, we tend to hold onto pain…for protection and for validation' says Dr. B. 'When people are holding pain, they are destroying themselves and often times taking others down with them.' She is the author of five books on communication, conflict, change, and empowerment.
