This Funzing Experience:

The world is in transition. We are in transition. Change – and the desire for change – is everywhere we look. Yet we scarcely understand it, let alone know how to pursue and steer change wisely.

In this talk, writer and documentarian Polly Morland offers an intimate real-world view of how and why we change. Can we change on demand? And how do we deal with it when change is thrust upon us? Whether we’re facing political or personal upheaval, whether we yearn to change our jobs or our bodies, our behaviour or our minds, Polly Morland shows that change is not an event, but a process at which we’re more skilled than we realise.

This talk is for anyone who’s stuck in a rut and who wants to think afresh about change in a turbulent world. Bringing the psychology and philosophy of change to life, it’s about why real people change, and how our imaginations can drive that transformation.

Venue: Haunt, Stoke Newington

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

Funzing Talks @ Night is a new concept which aims to take the well known 'Tedx' style talks, and make them more accessible. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire and re-invent your after work beers.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a Funzing Talks @ Night event makes the perfect after work mid-week activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
