Everyone deserves to make their dreams a reality. What dreams of yours have you deferred for too long? It's all too common for our passions to fall by the wayside amongst the daily grind of ordinary living.

Dr Dragos Bratasanu, an award-winning scientist, writer and inspirational speaker, will present an illustrated discussion about his approach to realising his dreams, drawing on his own life experience of seemingly impossible accomplishments. He will begin the evening with a screening of his documentary film 'The Amazing You', followed by discussion about his latest book, 'The Pursuit of Dreams'. An informal audience question-time will follow.

About Dr Dragos
Now based in New Zealand, Dr. Dragos Bratasanu is an award-winning space scientist and engineer who as a speaker, has presented on five continents. He holds a Ph.D. Magna Cum Laude from the Centre for Sensor Systems in Germany and has received awards for his innovations in the field of satellite-based intelligence. He started from a humble beginning in Eastern Europe and today travels the world to empower people to heal their life and make their dreams a reality.

In his 20s, Dragos organized and travelled alone on two expeditions to the North and the South Pole and was the engineer and journalist of the first Romanian simulation mission for planet Mars, at the Mars Desert Research Station. With these expeditions, Dragos was featured twice in National Geographic.

In 2015, Google and Singularity University selected Dragos to be part of the Global Solutions Program – an entrepreneurial venture at Singularity University at NASA AMES in Silicon Valley. The programme brought future leaders and entrepreneurs from around the world to create solutions for humanity's grand challenges. Forbes Magazine named their team to be ‘among the smartest people in the world.’

In 2017, Dr. Dragos was nominated by M.I.T. Technology Review for the Innovators Under 35 Award, a most prestigious recognition for ‘the brightest minds in Europe who are changing society’ with their projects.
