3. Success/Resilience – Turn Obstacles Into Opportunities

An inspirational personal story, which can be applied to our working lives. From early days in an orphanage in Canada-to an education in the USA-to an international career with IBM in Japan, the Australian Executive Woman of the Year outlines:

  • We can’t always control events but can always control our attitude
  • Focus on what you can do rather than waste energy on what you can’t
  • Focus on the positive to produce professional & personal success
  • Detour to Dreams-Hope is not a 4 letter word
  • Incorporating analogies from volunteering with street kids, cycling over the Andes, climbing Mt Kilimanjaro & trekking to Timbuktu, participants are reminded not to make mountains out of molehills.

Participants will leave all sessions feeling better about themselves and their organization.
