2021 speaker vids

Last year’s theme ‘What Matters Now?’ takes inspiration from the idea that it is okay to feel the way you do and still find the focus within on what really matters – health, kindness, patience, empathy, enthusiasm, love, and optimism. Our visuals too will depict a colorful illustrative approach, using creative doodles & shapes representing a wide range of emotions and experiences. They will primarily pivot around the sub-themes of self-care, purpose, and perspective.
