Evenings's Conversation : Disruption
Conversation Dinner Content Image

Have you ever counted the number of people you’ve ‘spoken to’ in one day? How many of those conversations, were brief, going-through-the-motions exchanges of words? How many were open, honest conversations?

We have lost the art of conversation and at The ACADEMi of Life we are bringing it back.  Having meaningful face to face conversations is essential to improving our well-being and essential to making the world a better place. In an intimate, one-table setting, we create an atmosphere of unobstructed dialogue and self-discovery through the simple act of getting to know all the guests at the table.

We can host only 12 persons per dinner so register early. Bring a friend. We look forward to you dinning with us. Conversation Dinners can also be arranged exclusively for groups, corporations and non-profit organizations. Please e-mail us at info@theacademioflife.com to discuss.



Social Disruption – Can You Handle It?

Marriage is being disrupted. Once upon a time in America, marriage was the norm for adults. But now, for the first time since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking these numbers in 1976, there are more single Americans than people who are married. About 50.2 percent — or 124.6 million American adults — are single.

Gender is being disrupted. The University of Vermont recently established a third category that students can identify as – it’s called ‘neutral gender.’ In this system people can choose a gender in adulthood, whereas our current system assigns everyone a gender at birth.

The family is being disrupted. The modern family is the new normal -- traditional families are history.

Media is being disrupted. There is a new balance of power online - the rising power of social network movements, the creation of online video ‘celebrities,' musicians, writers and more.

Business is being disrupted.  With the rate of change going on, do you think your company will be around in the next 5 years? Futurist, Dr. Peter H. Diamandis believes that 40% of fortune 500 will be gone in 10 years.

We are in the middle of significant shifts. The world has changed and will continue to change rapidly. Have we humans really caught up with or understand this incredible transformation? How do we adapt to this changing world and even thrive in it? What are the opportunities? Is disruption simply the theory of evolution? Let’s talk.

The conversation will be co-moderated by Sarika Jain. Sarika Jain is a trusted business and personal transformation advisor with several years of experience in the corporate strategy, facilitation and coaching space. She works with people and organizations on defining their vision, removing limiting belief systems, and successfully executing strategic plans, with a focus on gaining insight, meaning and purpose during the process. Sarika has a background in engineering, international development and management consulting, and is a Wharton MBA graduate, and has worked with Merrill Lynch, The World Bank, Bain & Co and Yahoo!.
