About this event

“It’s your reaction to adversity, not adversity itself that determines how your life’s story will develop.” – Dieter F. Uchtdorf

We live in uncertain times. Whether we like it or not adversity is part of life and overcoming it is one of the biggest hurdles we face.

Have you ever felt like things were stacked against you in life? How do we deal with it? How is it that some people bounce back from adversity and misfortune while others fall apart?

Working in non-profits, there are many challenges to be faced, all of us can benefit from becoming more resilient – to better our ability to face our struggles, recover, and adapt. When we resolve to confront and overcome it, we become experts at dealing with it and consequently truimph over our day-to-day struggles.

Join us to learn how to deal with and overcome adversity, to build character, resilience, discipline and perseverance in tough times. Get inspired to create an inclusive society by gleaning insights from the inspirational life stories of a Bomb Blast Survivor, a Senator and Paralympian, a Neuroscientist and Physician and an Olympian who conquered the world’s toughest challenges and aren’t done yet.

  • Develop an understanding on advancing their natural advantage
