DENNIS CUKU BIOGRAPHY

Dennis Cuku is a keynote speaker that is passionate about self-improvement, productivity, mental health, and sustainable development. He is the co-founder of the Mosaic Family of Companies, a knowledge-worker collective designed to effect positive social change through business. As a visionary entrepreneur, he operates on the manifesto that Normal is Broken and that capitalism need not come at the expense of human values, environmental sustainability, or personal happiness. Dennis is an animated and stimulating communicator with a zeal for fun, awesomeness, and the abolishment of the status quo.

Dennis Cuku is a mechanical engineer with expertise in drilling rig design and is acting President of Oil Country Engineering. Paradoxically, his passion lies in the arena of sustainable building design and green building innovation. Dennis’ project, The Mosaic Centre for Conscious Community and Commerce, was completed in 2015 and aims to be the crown jewel of sustainable building in Edmonton, becoming the first Net Zero energy commercial office building in Alberta — an example of Alberta’s oil and gas abundance igniting innovative sustainable projects.

Dennis Cuku isn’t afraid to occasionally close the office a few days a year so the staff can volunteer on community initiatives, such as the 500 man-hours dedicated to Habitat for Humanity and countless more spent to help with Edmonton’s Food Bank or raise funds for the Stollery Children’s Hospital. It’s that altruism that Dennis believes will help society adapt to a rapidly changing world.

Dennis Cuku understands that in this time of rapid change and disruption our leaders are being called upon to develop healthy workplaces, schools, family units, and governments capable of thriving, not just surviving. “There needs to be a humanistic approach to business,” he says. “If we’re going to subscribe to this idea of capitalism, we don’t have to rape and pillage along the way. We can still have free enterprise and we can still have what our planet needs.”

BEology - A Path to Inner Peace

  • As individuals transform their personal operating systems from me to we, families, communities, workspaces and governments transform their paradigms from competition to collaboration. Dennis Cuku will share his experience from over 15 years of corporate leadership and delivering highly disruptive projects using the “BEology” principles.

    In this presentation, Dennis will introduce the fundamental principles of “BEology” – a school of thought and practice (equal parts science and self-inquiry) defined as the “science of happiness and human potential”..

    Dennis will cover the physiology of stress, how it affects our brain, how the brain has evolved, and how it is hardwired with a negativity bias. He’ll speak about the early warning signs of stress and how to re-wire for a new way of BEING. He’ll talk about making empowered choices from positive core beliefs instead of defaulting to our auto. Dennis Cuku will teach how to have a more authentic presence and greater self-confidence so you can live YOUR optimal human experience.

BEology -The Study and Practice of Being

  • We have become a society of human doings versus human beings. Stuck in a constant rat race of chasing and hustling many of us find ourselves over-stressed, checked out, and uninspired. As humans, we are hardwired for connection, our need to fit in and check off society’s boxes leaves us “shoulding” all over ourselves and others—we trade our intuition, creativity, and authenticity for acceptance.

    When we are covered in “shoulds” and expectations we can’t hear our own signal and we often become motivated by fear of what others will think, lack or “not-enoughness”, this stress further disconnects us from our hearts and others. When we stop “shoulding” on ourselves we can live more in alignment with who and how we want to BE in our lives versus unconsciously chasing unrealistic paradigms of success that disconnect us from our bodies, relationships, and environments.

    This presentation explains the neuroscience around mindfulness and inner peace while exploring the psychology of personality, attachment, emotional intelligence, motivation, inner criticism (the panel of assholes), and self-compassion. We will also explore various tools from yoga and mindfulness in addition to self-reflection and self-compassion practices from psychology in order to hijack our human operating system and live a life that is in alignment with our deepest values. Awake. Alive. Engaged.

The Mosaic Centre - More than a net‐zero office building

  • This session features the design of the Mosaic Centre for Conscious Community and Commerce project – a 30,000 sq. ft. mixed‐use commercial building in Edmonton, Alberta. The project began with the intention to create the ideal workplace for the Mosaic Family of Companies and the surrounding communities.

    It has transitioned into a grassroots movement— a complete re‐envisioning of the way commercial construction is done and designed to rethink the spaces in which people work.

    Some of the key features include: the largest utilization of “WestDek: panel product to date and hybrid steel‐wood design to achieve the “beauty” target; Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) contract between the team furthest north net‐zero office building in the world..

    The simple business case for the Mosaic Centre: Lean construction frees up budget for beauty and “green”; How the structural materials were selected to meet the business case and project objectives; An introduction to the IPD system and why it was the key to project success; Lessons learned from the project and delivering deep “green” buildings.
