GS04 Fear Less; Do More – Putting Learning into Action

11:15 AM - 12:30 PM PT
Friday, October 27

There are a number of factors that can limit our ability to take action on new ideas and apply what we learn in exciting and innovative ways. One of the biggest limiting factors is fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of change, fear of failure. Fear keeps us in our comfort zone, consciously and subconsciously limiting our learning and growth. In order to reach our potential, we must overcome our fears.

In our closing keynote for DevLearn 2023, Michelle Poler will take you on a journey that will change your perception of fear and inspire you to take action. Through authentic storytelling, engaging visuals, and her 100 Days Without Fear experience, Michelle will show you how to challenge your comfort zone and redefine how you view fear, shifting it from an obstacle to an opportunity. Join us for a fun session that will provide inspiration and guidance to apply what you’ve learned at DevLearn in your work.
