Positive Mindset: Dean Okai - 2.30-3.15pm
Both the talk and the workshop will focus on enabling young people to make the leap from being missiles to becoming guided missiles. The workshop is a short aggregation of social values and life tactics. These tactics include coping mechanisms, soft skills that improve social outcomes, removing pressure to socially conform with today's trends to focus on personal development and career pathways.

By exploring these topics, Dean intends to make the young people stakeholders and introduce them to being the governors of their own minds, which is their first house. He will use the white board to make some graphic examples because these lock in the subconscious mind and help the young people to adopt the concepts.
