I attended the World Domination Summit last weekend. It’s about changing the world by doing good, not some ulterior motive to take over. This experience is seeping in slowly. I know it has shifted something in me, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. What I do know is what I planned on doing this past week no longer made sense. Yet, the new form isn’t quite here yet.
Brene Brown served as the opening keynote. What she said was inspiring, but her presence is what made her so effective. She’s a master at slightly leaning into the audience and conveying a sense of meeting each person where they are. Her slides were simple and well done, and complimented her presence.
Here are snippets from her talk, or at least what I heard and wrote down. Her actual words were probably slightly different. Hopefully you’ll get a sense of what she shared. If you click on them, they’ll post to your twitter account.
She also got 1000 people singing Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing before 10 am. Impressive.

She captures the essence of the human condition, and speaks it authentically. I think that is why she resonates with so many people. It’s like the essence of ourselves being spoken with kindness and compassion.
Here are a few nuggets from the answers:
