Speaker: Nguyễn Minh Nhật
Date: 25 July 2018
Time: 7 – 9pm
Language: Vietnamese with English translation

Do you like your job? Does it make you happy? Is a stable income the final target of your life? With these questions in mind, Nguyễn Minh Nhật decided to quit his job (at an international retail group) and instead, has been focusing his time on gaining as much experience as possible by trying out different positions in different fields, with only one goal in mind: to find a job that brings happiness. By working on his personal projects as well as collaborating with other societal organizations and businesses, Nhật soon realized his desire to connect communities and change people’s lives. He believes that a strong and healthy development of the mind relies not only on one’s knowledge of today’s society, but also on their understanding of themselves. At this ‘Creative Sessions’, Nhật will share with us the story of his journey for the last 7 years, via the introduction of projects he has created, such as ‘Dichung.vn’ (an eco-friendly vehicle sharing platform), ‘Coi Viet’ (a nonprofit educational organization), ‘One-week job’, ‘Heo Dat’ (a program helping youths create financial plans) etc. So, how to step out of your comfort zone to realize your dreams? Come join Nguyễn Minh Nhật on our 10th ‘Creative Sessions’ to find out.

What is ‘Creative Sessions’?
‘Creative Sessions’ is about sharing the inspiration behind creative thinking in Vietnam. Whether you are an artist, architect, chef, fashion designer, illustrator, musician, scientist or writer, these ‘sessions’ seek to demonstrate how creativity can be about allowing our minds to open up, that it may be as much about learning a discipline as it is about taking wonder in the everyday present moment.
