The Bigger Picture

RSVP for our Mar. 11 live virtual salon

Dyslexics of every age and profession often identify as big-picture thinkers. But what does it mean to “think big” and how does it manifest in different fields? How can we all—dyslexics and non-dyslexics alike—channel that perspective to create, innovate and lead with curiosity?

Holly Tucker, Guy Singh-Watson and Dom Wilder
