Every human being is loaded with talent and potential. Sadly, all too often, many of us struggle to fully unleash our talents on the world; we find it hard to discover our voice and stand out as the people we are capable of being.
Starting in 2013, Vox is looking to help change this. Each month, on the fourth Wednesday, we will host a conversation around one or more of the themes of human potential, creativity, talent, leadership, and the future. They are designed to be fun and informal, and yet meaningful and inspiring. The source of the content will vary from month to month, but will typically be books related to the above themes.
What people are saying
“I wasn’t sure to expect when I turned up to the first StandOut event – I was hoping it wouldn’t be a dry academic debate. It turned out to be great fun - a stimulating discussion with a really friendly and interesting bunch of people. Highly recommended as a way to spend a couple of hours on a Wednesday evening.” — Pete
How much will it cost?
To participate in these monthly conversations will cost £3 each month. We are charging because, as well as investing in our own lives, we want to give something to those who have a much harder starting point what we do in looking to develop and maximise their potential. As such, all the proceeds raised each month wil be going to support the work of Oasis South Africa, a charity working in the townships of Johannesburg, helping to give young people a much better start in life.
What's the vibe?
The vibe for these conversations is very relaxed and informal. They're designed for anyone and everyone who wants to learn more about living life to the full and discovering their unique voice. This isn't some stuffy, academic workshop. It is more along the line of an non-fiction book club where people can come to learn, share, and discuss. We're all on a journey, figuring out what it means to be human. This is a space for you to do that with others who share the same motivations.
Buying and reading the book isn't essential to benefit from this event, but to get the most out of it, it is highly recommended.
Where do you meet?
