Doc Waller

Along with being a veteran of the United States Air Force, Doc's background is submerged in the Arts. It spans from performing and touring with professional theatres in NYC (and along the East Coast), national television, and regional dance companies. During those days in the Arts, he independently developed a multitude of original workshops and curriculums (on creativity, voice, poetry) for universities and K-12 schools, as well as a handful of one-man productions performed at theatres across the Southeast.

Since stepping away from the Arts in 2012, he has produced a number of independent web series, starting with "On Beauty with Doc Waller." Doc is a speaker alum of both TEDxAtlanta & TEDxHuntsville. He has served as an emcee for national brands, conferences, festivals and organizations, and is also the former founder of an Alabama nonprofit Arts organization called The Layman Group. In 2013, he turned his full focus towards building the Becoming Possible lifestyle brand and is currently based out of East Alabama. 

 

Becoming Possible: Why Super Human Conquers “Superhuman” 

October 14th | 4:30 PM

We can exist in a vacuum as professionals. As “superhuman” as we’d like to think we are in our craft or business, there’s a smorgasbord of real-life, super human, chaotic elements that are eating away at our well-being and peace of mind on a daily basis. Ignoring these elements is dangerous play. Without a solid personal process in place to face these elements, we become more kamikaze, emotional creatures than efficient leaders, managers and professionals. 

This talk is about hard truths. This talk is about rebounding and landing well. This talk is about breaking day-to-day chaos down to a human level, and embracing a few tools that we can take into the battle of life in order to maintain our composure and ambition.
