International TEDx speaker Mac Macartney's Reflections on Darkness
Thursday 27 April 2017, 7pm
Mac is an international speaker, writer and change-maker who seeks to inspire the emergence of the leader in each of us, the leader who will take courageous action for a better world.
The world is changing fast. Towards what, is still unclear but whether our eyes are darkly tinted or bright with possibilities, we all long for a kinder, just, peaceful and flourishing world. Mac’s ‘Reflections on Darkness’ brings to life the small yet potent contributions that everyone can make. We may yet decide the trajectory of our human story with our collective small steps. Mac Macartney celebrates the courage upon which each of these steps depend, especially the first. This talk picks up those who struggle from impotence and irrelevance in the face of global challenges. It lifts a veil and inspires us all to action.
St James Church, Forbury Road, Reading (just behind Forbury Gardens, by Reading Prison. Mac has most generously offered us a pro-bono talk, so tickets are FREE. Donations happily accepted. Please, however, do pre-book your tickets.
