These 10 speakers changed today the world with their courage, ideas and enthusiasm for their work here in Belfast. Congratulations and feel free to contact them for any help or advice, I’m sure that they will support you.
The first speaker was Charo Lanao Madden
She talked about gaining new positive perspectives in different situations in life, no matter how difficult are the circumstances.
Some of the highlights of her talk, speaking about human connection and interdependence:
“Make a difference between “I am here with you” and “I am here, as a part of you”.
A lovely talk about all the people who changed the world with their ideas and projects. From Ghandi to Einstein, all put their stamp on the world we experience today.
