Portia Tung discusses the concept of Hope. Instead of being a mere emotion, the latest research shows us Hope is a process and a thinking tool that can help us harness our willpower and come up with ways to make our dreams come true. This interactive talk is aimed to better understand the relationship with Hope and figure out how to achieve even the most ambitious of goals. Filmed at qconlondon.com.

Portia Tung is a consultant-coach, storyteller, and games maker who combines business strategies with play to bring about positive organisational change. She is an international speaker, and the creator of concepts such as Playmaking and Enterprise Gardening.
