  1. Discuss his own journey both professionally and personally, explaining the challenges he has faced balancing stereotypes of societal norms around intellect versus being sociable
  2. Share his own observations and personal experiences of the importance people place on the use of labels and identity.
  3. Present a workshop that explores intelligence and creativity, which will include hands on activities for everyone to get involved with.
