Opening General Session: Happy Not Perfect: The Power of Flexible Thinking & 40 Under 40 Awards Ceremony

May 17, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Keynote Speaker Poppy Jamie

With the complex world comes a crushing wave of stress, anxiety, isolation, life change, and financial struggle to add to a growing mental health crisis. Due to a culture that encourages perfection, hustle, and fictional life/work balance, many are burning out. This is especially true in Politics, a fast-paced, high stakes, competitive industry with few guarantees.

Behind her Instagram-projected image of “happy wellness founder,” Poppy Jamie was also struggling mightily with perfectionism and life purpose. In this talk, she blends her personal mental health journey with scientific research to share with audiences the practical tools to overcome our inner critic and rewire our minds. Using healthier thought habits and her Flexy Thoughts approach, Poppy demonstrates how to break patterns of avoidance, challenge fears of not being good enough, and turn failure around to become more confident, emotionally resilient, adaptable, and accepting for a happier, healthier future.

Poppy’s insights will help you not only improve your own sense of wellbeing, but you’ll learn how to apply these strategies to manage a business and workforce in times of uncertainty, working from home, and in the “pressure cooker” of a campaign.
