They don’t like being lectured to.
But the people behind Rebel Lectures are rebelling against all that. After shaking up the world of number-calling with Rebel Bingo (which has since spread from London to LA) they’re now aiming to do the same thing for talks.
COOL. SO WHAT’S THE DEAL?
Put simply, they believe that lectures should be “more intense, more emotional, more dramatic, more anything”. It’s all inspired by the founder’s dive down the podcast rabbit-hole, which awakened a dormant, deep-seated lust for learning – he realised that an injection of passion can make literally any subject interesting, and decided to try and prove it to the world.
I’M INSPIRED. WHAT ARE THE TALKS?
Well, first up on the docket is,
Public Speaking for Revolutionaries: yep, it’s a talk about talking. If you’re “a total pussy when it comes to public speaking” or “you’re worried that you’re boring and everyone hates you”, then this is for you. It’ll dive into the science and history of public speaking, what drives it to be so terrifying, and how to master the hell out of it. Then there’s,
Depression for Winners: Taking a very un-depressing look at mental health’s biggest black dog, this talk – from a long-time depression sufferer – will aim to show how to try and turn low-mood into an advantage, and how being in “the depths of hell” can actually help set you free.
How To Fuck Up Your Kids The Least: You’re going to fuck up your kids. That’s a given. Here’s how to minimise the damage.
Of course, there’ll be more dates added in the coming weeks. We’d tell you to go…
…but we don’t want to lecture you.
NOTE: Rebel Lectures are taking place from October 4th in the Waterloo Vaults. You can buy tickets, and find out more right HERE.
