“Finding ourselves” is big business. We’re always connected, always in motion so we look to experts to help us slow down, to help us find meaning. Expensive & exotic retreats, we welcome fully catered escapes. We think that a conscious uncoupling from job titles, awards, & social media will bring us back to ourselves. But what if you didn’t need to find yourself at all? What if you were already found? Would your life be different if you knew with utter certainty that you’re whole & that you have been since the day you arrived? We’re all born whole and the world teaches us that we’re lacking. Let’s learn to live wholly by celebrating all of our Little Sluggers, daily.

TEDxAuckland and ‘Dans le Noir ?’ came together to create a TEDx world-first IN THE DARK. A sensory, social and human experience, in pitch-black. It heightened senses and made guests re-evaluate their perception of them. The hosts, all visually impaired, guided the guests throughout the evening, serving food and drinks while the speakers shared their ideas. Cassie is an award winning thought leader in the field of digital marketing, and the economy of influence. A majority of her time has been steering the ‘social media & digital storytelling ship’ for global & APAC brands like Air New Zealand, ANZ Bank, Mighty River Power, The Warehouse Group & NZME.

Cassie is a Californian native and after 16 years in New Zealand, a proud YanKiwi, working to drive creativity in content, increase the positive impact of social media across channels, and teach brands how to scale their messages contextually. She is an evangelist for ensuring a strong purpose is at the heart of all of our work days – no matter what we do.

Cassie’s main professional goal? Delivering results while having fun doing it. By embracing change, actively driving innovation, growing positive community engagement, and deepening customer service standards. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
