Dare to harness your human brilliance
From the perspective of intuition, impossible problems do not exist. There is only inability to see the solutions. The human mind is equipped for brilliance. When harnessing the potential of intuition, we are able to invent unseen novelties, to solve impossible problems and to envision the future. In this keynote, Asta Raami shares methods of harnessing intuition and evaluating intuitive information.

Asta Raami, PhD
Asta Raami is an intuition researcher, educator and author. She defended her PhD Thesis on the development of intuition in creative processes in 2015 (Aalto University Media Lab, Finland). Asta has worked 15 years altogether in the academic field and written several books on the use of intuition as a factor in expertise and the general skills of work life, as well as on harnessing the potential of intuition in visionary and radical innovations. In Finland, intuitive information is acknowledged in the national curriculum, and in relation to this Asta educates teaching staff in integrating intuition in pedagogy at the University of Helsinki.
Engage in dialogue
After the keynote, we will divide into smaller groups for facilitated dialogues. The purpose of the dialogues is to discuss ways to enhance meaningfulness of work in the volatile and uncertain future. The dialogues offer a space for sharing experiences, examining our assumptions and learning from others.
Dialogue is a form of conversation that emphasizes understanding, active listening and equal participation. No one is an expert and every voice counts.
By engaging in dialogue, we can open up to new possibilities and envision a more meaningful future.
