Pedro García Aguado – Learning, adapting and changing

“If you want to get something you’ve never had, you’ll have to do something you’ve never done”.

From defender to attacker in sport. From not being a father to being one twice over. From elite sportsman to therapeutic centre. From sick person to therapist, and from there to TV presenter and social entrepreneur.

There is intelligence through study and training, but there is also adaptive intelligence, which is what allows us to survive, adapting to the different aspects, situations and events that occur throughout our lives.

“It is not he who knows the most who is most intelligent, but he who is quickest to adapt to change”. Steven Hawking.

In his lecture, Peter explains how his life changed and what events caused him to change course. He highlights the lessons learned from his 17 years as a professional sportsman and the ability to turn a negative argument around when his sporting career came to an end. He shares how, thanks to these situations, he is today one of the people most loved and trusted by families to help them in the prevention and resolution of conflicts.

A professional motivator, every time he speaks to young people and adults he manages to promote some kind of personal change in those who listen to him. The conference is impregnated with anecdotes and personal experiences, going from humour to drama, returning to humour and ending with a motivational and positive message.
