How can we be braver? In today’s ever-changing world, winners take the risk or lose the chance. We learnt how to overcome our barriers through inspirational speakers who have pushed themselves to the limits.
We were delighted to bring our flagship conference to Dubai for the first time this year. Alongside our Brave Conference in London, we hosted events in all our global hubs, all on the same day.
Ambitious? Maybe. Brave? Definitely.
It was an inspiring day, getting under the skin of what it really meant, for individuals and organizations, to be brave and lead the way.
