What's happening at Rise Mumbai

'Mind Your Mind' workshop by Deepak Sethi
Saturday 7 December 2019

'Mind Your Mind' workshop by Deepak Sethi

We fail to realize that Thinking is a faculty endowed to us to navigate through life, and that we need to develop and master it, as we would, any other skill. As a result, our thinking output is below par and definitely below our own potential. That ‘life for most- is happy in patches, mediocre largely & stressful in chunks’, is a pointer to that. We could be a lot more successful and happier, if only we enhance our Thinking Productivity…

The workshop "Mind Your Mind" is a 4-hour foundational one on ‘Thinking as a life skill’, the way we use it 16 waking hours per day, 7 days a week. It will help the participants to pluck the ‘low hanging fruits’ towards a more successful & a happier life. Towards the objective of enhancing Thinking Productivity, the attendees will be exposed to actionable concepts, guidelines and easy to use thinking templates.

Transform your business with 'Whatsapp for Business'

After having disrupted the consumer messaging market, Whatsapp is now doing the same to the business messaging market. Whatsapp's new solution for businesses is rapidly transforming the way companies use messaging. It's changing the way companies engage their customers, automate their processes, provide customer support and launch new services. This enables the business to launch new features, increase revenues, lower costs and improve efficiency.

If you're interested in hosting your event in our space at Rise Mumbai, get in touch with us for details of availability and cost.
