Mother Nature's Laws of Business

Energy. Power. Work. Momentum. We use these terms every day in our professional lives to relate to the day-to-day experiences of people. Yet as engineers, these terms have completely different meanings. Or do they? Perhaps the forces that make objects move, water flow, and the earth rotate are also operating in our thoughts, actions and relationships. After all, why would the laws of nature apply to everything in the universe – except us? Through engaging stories and interactive demonstrations, you will explore the fascinating connections between Mother Nature and human nature, and how these parallels reveal – in one "a ha!" moment after another – why we get what we get, and how to get what we want.
