About this session

In Japanese culture, the concept “ikigai” translates to “reason for being”. The concept is often understood in the Western setting as one's collection of motivations and sense of purpose.

In this workshop, Katrina will introduce the ikigai framework that is used to strive for a balance between the spiritual and the practical. This balance is found at the intersection where your passions and talents converge with the things that the world needs and is willing to pay for.

By the end of this class you will be able to:
  • Learn how your ikigai findings can be applied to your routines, decision-making, and resource allocation.
  • Understand how the ikigai framework can be applied to your routines, decision-making, and time-resource allocation.
  • Find your ikigai.
This class is for:
  • Career pivoters scared of risk-taking and change.
  • New graduates thinking about their purpose.
  • Anyone interested in living a more fulfilling life.

FAQs

There are so many webinars. How is NewCampus any different?

We’re not a webinar. Nor are we an online course. NewCampus is a community learning experience—interactive, intimate and energising. You are not listening passively, you will be actively getting involved. Our sessions are designed so that you actually get to interact with both the speaker, but also more importantly with your new peers. They will be your future collaborators, clients and co-founders. 

All our learnings formats—workshops, mentoring sessions, tiny conferences, dialogues and more—are designed with these principles in mind. There will always be a chance for you to share ideas in a small group, practice newly minted skills and get real-time feedback.

What do I need to join this session?

A stable wifi connection, a quiet well-lit corner and some headphones. After confirming your spot, you will receive instructions in your email about how to join this session via Zoom. You will also need to be ready to switch on your laptop camera and microphone to interact with your fellow colearners, who will need to be able to hear and see you.

Who attends NewCampus?

NewCampus works best for:

  • Business, technology and creative professionals looking to rise up, lead and be a part of shaping their industries.
  • Small-business owners, entrepreneurs
  • Start-up founders (pre-seed to seed level)

Many members are in the first 5-15 years of their career, but our community is diverse and sees many in different age groups.

Most colearners join in from the Asia Pacific region which our session times work best for, but we are seeing new people from Europe and the US every week.
