2023 SCWI Spring Symposium

Theme: Reconnecting, Refocusing, Reimagining

A Post-Symposium Message
from David Armstrong, SCWI Project Officer

Well, the SCWI IJECT Symposium 2023 was another resounding success! May 9th saw over 300 participants come together at Humber College while another group participated online.

On behalf of SCWI and the Symposium Organizing Committee I would like to offer our deep appreciation to all those whose contributions to our first hybrid Symposium helped to make it another success.

Dr. Greg Wells, in our keynote address, spoke on the theme: Rest, Refocus, Recharge. In his presentation, Dr. Wells charged the audience to “slow down, to speed up,” to focus on health and family and to “apply the cutting-edge science of brain states to perform at the highest possible level”. Clearly Dr. Wells’ message resonated with his audience as reflected in so many comments we heard afterward.

Special thanks to all the presenters, moderators, facilitators, tech supporters, caterers, student guides and especially the attendees for helping to make the 2023 Annual Symposium yet another very valuable experience! I look forward to seeing you at our in-person Symposium, May 14, 2024, at Humber College.
