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

1392390_657181517649138_2052275641_oIt was one of my favorite talks.

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”.

Lisa McElherron

Leon talked about courage in real life, the courage to follow your dreams and start something new that nobody tried, something that can’t be postponed, something that can be done once in a life time:Living the adventure!

He traveled around the world and walked along the Big Wall, with a willingness to try new things, to risk the comfort of the present for adventure.

Tony Gallagher – “Shared education and why is it important”
