- REFLECT. RECHARGE, RECONNECT TO OUR PURPOSE!
Brock's inspiring keynote excites audiences, who arrive listening with their ears and leave listening with their hearts. In school, we learn to listen with our ears and as the years go by, we gradually stop listening to our hearts. This is why there is low morale, depression, absenteeism and low productivity in the workplace as well as challenges in personal relationships. As a popular teenager Brock listened with his ears and although he looked fine on the outside, on the inside he was depressed and suicidal. A decision to embark on a bicycle trip around North America saved his life. Brock discovered, during his 50,000 KM bicycle trip, that it was really a 12 inch journey from his head back to his heart. Brock shares why taking the time to reflect on the work we do and why we are doing it, Reconnect to the path we have chosen and determine if it still fills us with passion and purpose and Recharge by listening with our heart and not with our ears."...i'd rather be seen for who i am and be alone... than be accepted for someone i'm not and be lonely."
"...when i think ...i need to belong... i often follow others... when i follow my heart, i feel i belong regardless of others."
- DIVERSITY FROM THE HEART
After three Epic Bike trips around North America, meeting thousands of people from all different walks of life, Brock discovered the best approach to Diversity in the Workplace and in Life, is from the Heart. No matter the age, style of dress, religious beliefs or color of skin, Brock strives to only see a person's heart. Many diversity programs are created to celebrate and acknowledge our differences but lack the ability to create a connection. Brock approaches Diversity programs by celebrating not only what makes us each unique and special but more importantly how we are all the same on the inside. When we look beyond what the eye can see and listen to our heart, we only see what connects us as human beings.
"...by being willing to take the risk to be different, we may find that 'deep down' we're all the same...
...by trying to be the same we are often afraid of those who may 'appear' different."
