How insecurity can breathe gifts.
In celebration of our 8th birthday, three speakers (virtually) took the stage to explore the topic of INSECURE.
Stephanie Tan, our first speaker, explores how insecurity can cause us all to act in inauthentic ways. She advocates for a different approach to leadership that allows us to bring our whole selves to work (including the parts we’re not so sure about).
Next up is Nicole Römer, who encourages us to speak insecurity aloud, believing that by doing so “our insecurities can breathe gifts”. Nicole refuses to see insecurity as a solely negative force, exploring how we can use our insecurities to create connection.
Finally, Sadie DeMaioribus brings good news: everyone is insecure. She provides a three-step guide to giving exactly the right amount of sh*ts, helping us all reach the moment where we see insecurities come and go like bikes winding their way down a Dutch street.
Our speakers were welcomed to the stage by Samdryk, a singer-songwriter who resides in Amsterdam. His lyrics dive into personal stories of transformation, love and curiosity – and were performed live on acoustic guitar from his apartment.
