Start Loving the Commute

PRESENTED ON NOV 20, 2015
IN MARKHAM @ VOL 9

“Have you ever noticed anyone driving slower than you is an idiot and anyone driving faster than you is a maniac?” 

In Start Loving the Commute from PechaKucha Night Markham’s 9th volume, presenter Dave Howlett gives a little life advice on how to sit back and enjoy the ride. Howlett, an author, shows how we can shift gears and be better people. Companies employ him to knock down business silos by creating a spark that changes human behavior. His talk explores the driver's commute as a metaphor for creating positive change in our behaviour and attitude.

Thie was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, March 9th, 2016.
