Life is about the PEOPLE you spend time WITH

I just experienced the most magical week ever as I got to host TED speaker Kyla Mitsunaga (Harvard, founder of WithVSAt -teaching method) in Finland as my honored guest. She is really one in a million. This week leaves me nearly speechless but I try to wrap it up the best way I can.

She gave us an amazing “Happiness and Leadership” workshop at Laurea UAS and our students were simply amazed. Her authentic way of teaching/learning WITH them is very unique. Personally, the “human power point” -method was the thing, aww, simply too cool and effective… Let’s get rid of the static powerpoints and move towards human interaction! Yes! Aww, Kyla you are really in the edge of education. Here is a 13-minute compilation of the highlights recorded and edited by Mira, one of our talented students.

I have to thank my former colleague Atte Aro at Innofactor for making it possible for us to visit “Empowering Business” -seminar at Microsoft Headquarters. We got to have fun and listen to Sarah Caldicutt, the grandniece of Thomas Edison talk about Innovation.

One of the highlights of the week was this videorecording session WITH some of Laurea’s Amazing students, Melissa and Ile. We went to some real Finnish environment and our students recorded this amazing video. We were living the moment and awesomeness was created! Thanks guys.

It all climaxed at Global Leadership Dinner yesterday, in which 20 unique people (talents, leaders, thinkers, positive people) had fun and defined the qualities of Future Global Leader. Thanks to everyone who attended, that was an event of my life. I will never forget it!

In conclusion, there is never enough time to do ALL THINGS, but there is  always enough time to do the RIGHT things.

So, focus on the RIGHT things.

Remember to spend time with people who get you inspired!

Be happy and spread HAPPINESS around you. :)

Thanks Kyla for everything.
