This event was directed towards youth and young adults wanting to gain more insight on success and how to align yourself with the most successful version of you!

Srinivas Arka discussed:
– How to keep positive in the face of negative circumstances,
– How to keep balance in life when we have challenging goals to meet.
Jeremy Ullman discussed:
– His personal nonlinear academic pathway and changes,
– How to achieve success and manage failure,
– What to look for when connecting (or networking) with people.




Srinivas Arka
Founder, Centre for Conscious Awareness Global
Defining Success
Srinivas Arka, a world-renowned author, teacher and philosopher, has inspired countless thousands of us to explore and develop our own intuitive awareness. Through his methods, we achieve a more balanced and fulfilling life while at the same time helping those around us through increased empathy and understanding. He is founder of Centres for Conscious Awareness (CCAs), a constellation of registered charitable organisation around the globe, that actively study and research the structure and nature of human consciousness, its potential, and its extent, including its relationship with the external world.
His work is based on deepening the heart-based Intuitive Conscious Awareness. He teaches us that, by tapping into the potential of feeling and the resource of emotion, a shift of consciousness occurs from the mind to the heart.

Non-linear pathway to success
Jeremy wears many hats, some of which blow off in the winds of uncertainty, and others that cling tightly despite the intermittent gusts of daily life. As an aspiring educator, it is his goal to disseminate a combination of personal experience and insights from independent readings to enrich the lives of others. His internal dialogue is strong and echoes the words of the authors he’s reading at any given moment. Jeremy also finds balance through self-reflection and introspection, and is dedicated to a life-long journey of self-improvement. He is here today not only to share his experience, but to engage with you (yes, you) to answer any questions you have about stress and uncertainty.
