Why you may inevitably turn into your parents | Geraldine Joaquim | TEDxWoking

Is it nature or nurture that shapes who we are? Coming from a rich and varied genetic pool, Stress Management Consultant Geraldine Joaquim, author of ‘Understanding Your Stress Footprint’, explores the elements that shape us.

Using gentle humour, she shares her insights into our complex relationships with our ancestors – and how we can choose which habits and behaviours we pass on. A talk to share if you recognise your parent in yourself!

Geraldine is fascinated by the roulette of genetics coupled with psychology and spent 20+ years working in international marketing, before retraining as a clinical hypnotherapist. She now specialises in workplace stress management. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
