The world was in a loneliness crisis long before Covid-19.

As human beings, our brains are wired for connection. The feelings of disconnectedness people face today—isolation within our families, digital addiction, emotional trauma— hold worrying consequences for our mental well-being.

The metaverse, AI, and post-pandemic hybrid work all threaten the human connection we are wired to need as human beings. So how do we connect in a polarized world and across generations? Human connection specialist and best-selling author, Simone Heng, will share the techniques that authentically bring us together regardless of age, gender, race, and geography.
