We are being brave and pushing boundaries this year by hosting four conferences, in four countries, on one day - inspiring our members to be braver around the globe. Ambitious? Maybe. Brave? Definitely.
In today’s ever-changing world, winners take the risk or lose the chance. We believe overcoming our own barriers starts with learning from inspirational speakers who have pushed themselves to the limits and thrived.
We're curating an inspiring programme of brave speakers that will challenge the way you think and inspire you to be a bolder and braver leader.
