A panel of experts will then take the stage and offer personal experiences, invaluable nuggets and tools that will empower you to embrace rather than avoid challenge, face adversity head-on and inspire greatness in yourself and others. Attend this session for a resilience reset and discover how to break through barriers to survive and thrive, especially in difficult times.
