At 38 years old, Jason Arday has both overcome a lifetime of challenges and accomplished a lifetime of achievements. And he’s just getting started.
Jason has traversed a childhood diagnosis of global development delay and autism spectrum disorder, not speaking until age 11 and not reading or writing until age 18, to recently becoming one of the youngest academics ever appointed to a full Professorship at the University of Cambridge — all mingled with his life as an educator, researcher, advocate, activist, athlete, fundraiser, musician, and parent.
Hear how Jason has centered the levers of humility, purpose, communication, and resilience throughout his life and how you can apply these mindsets yourself to leading more effectively.
Amy Herman is a lawyer and art historian who uses works of art to help people sharpen observation, analysis, and communication skills. Discover how to look closely at painting, sculpture and photography to hone your visual intelligence and recognize the most pertinent and useful information, as well as understand the biases that impede decision making.
Amy’s approach is based on her Art of Perception seminar that she developed to improve medical students’ observation and communication skills with their patients when she was the head of education at The Frick Collection in New York City. She has further applied this work with diverse groups ranging from the New York City Police Department, the FBI, and first responders to the State Department, Fortune 500 companies, and educators.
Through Amy's talk, you’ll gain a better understanding of the relevance of visual literacy and how “seeing differently” through art can provide trainers an innovative way to refresh their learning design skills.
