“A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes”
- Jonathan Swift
It is said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions because good intentions mixed with bad information often lead to harmful results. For the sake of ourselves, and the people that we care about, we must defend against the spread of misinformation, and create a world that values accuracy, honesty and open discussion.
Join us for a fun and stimulating evening devoted to the topic of free and clear thinking with three expert speakers in the fields of critical thinking, health and medicine, and personal development.
Spotting Lies in their Natural Habitat
Geoff Brown, Art of Mind
Geoff is a speaker and coach who believes that we can change our thinking not only to defend against fake news, but also to live deeper and more fulfilling lives. He will speak about how misinformation can blend into the environment to sneak past our defenses, and how you can tune up your mind to keep it out.
