Brain Fitness with David Miln Smith


Brain Fitness:

How Adventure & Risk-Taking
Improves Quality of Life


With insights gained from a lifetime of extreme adventuring, author and explorer David Miln Smith will share learning how to convert the fear of change from an enemy to an ally, and reframe risk from aversion to excitement.
A real-life “Indiana Jones,” David Miln Smith is internationally renowned for taking on world-class physical and intellectual challenges. A master storyteller, Dr. Smith weaves from his own experiences to guide, motivate, inspire, and entertain from tales of kayaking the Nile, swimming from Africa to Europe, solo trekking over the Atlas Mountains and marathoning through the Sahara.
