About the talk

“What do you do?”

It’s a frequent first question asked at parties, networking events, and bad dates. And sadly, the answer often includes the word “just”.

Perhaps a more interesting question is, “Who are you?”. But, how do you answer? Often, our identity is dominated by our professional image. However, even those that “live to work” have other facets which may contain hidden value.

Testing labels and work sometimes obscure our actual and potential value, which can lead to frustration. Can eschewing labels and understanding anxiety help lead to stronger self-image, teams, culture, and results?

In this keynote, Damian uses humor, personal stories, models, pop-culture examples, and more to examine our identities, explore our interests, and find inspiration from unexpected sources. Join him to laugh, learn, and “unjust yourself” as you rediscover Who You Are!
