Limited Capacity seats available

In the world of professional sports innovation, resilience and rapid learning are everything! In this very personal talk I will share key learnings from my professional and Olympic team sports career. I will contrast the perspectives and attitudes of professional sports with modern work life and demonstrate guidelines and tools from the sports arena that we can apply to our professional lives.
Come and learn how to choose the best team for you, use failure as fuel for your success, give and receive timely feedback on and off "the field" and never stop learning.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Identify strategies for being resilient in the face of failure
  • Use specific guidelines to choose which team is best for you
  • Reflect on continous learning and being deliberate about your career
  • Use strategies to give and receive timely feedback
