Duration: 1 hour

“What do you do?”

 

It’s a frequent first question asked at parties, networking events, and bad dates. And sadly, the answer often includes the word “just”.

 

Perhaps a more interesting question is, “Who are you?”. But, how do you answer? Often, our identity is dominated by our professional image. However, even those that “live to work” have other facets which may contain hidden value.

 

In this session, Damian uses humor, improv, personal stories, and more to examine our identities, explore our interests, and find inspiration from unexpected sources. Join him to laugh, learn, and “unjust yourself” as you rediscover Who You Are!

As someone in a transition from an individual SDET role to a manager role, [Damian's] keynote provided me an renewed sense of confidence. I don’t need to be JUST a tester or JUST a manager.

Very inspirational keynote ... about not self limiting in life.
