"How to Accomplish More by Doing Less"- Dinner, Talk & Book at UC Berkeley
The UC Berkeley Greater Good Science Center (GGSC) and the East Bay Chapter of the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) co-host a delightful evening with Christine Carter. Join us for dinner, mingling and an engaging talk. Registration price includes dinner and a paperback copy of "The Sweet Spot."

Learn how to increase your ability to get things done and enjoy the life you've worked so hard to create.

Carter is a sought-after keynote speaker, author and executive coach. Presenting the latest research on productivity and elite performance, Christine Carter, PhD, demonstrates a sweet paradox: by doing less we can actually accomplish more. Using surprising science and lively anecdotal evidence, Carter offers a practical game plan for mitigating stress by working with our brains innate hardwiring to increase happiness, balance, and ultimately, success.

She'll discuss:
-What happens to our brain when we tip into overwhelm
-Why some digital habits make us less productive (even as they make us *feel* like we are working harder)
-Easy-to-implement strategies to harness the power of your unconscious mind
