One of the most popular subjects we get asked for speakers on is the theme of resilience and how you can be more resilient. We work with a number of speakers that speak on the subject and how they overcame challenges in their lives and gone on and become successful.
We also work with several speakers who can talk on Mental Toughness. Very similar to resilience, mental toughness is the ability to resist, manage and overcome doubts, worries, concerns, and circumstances that prevent you from succeeding or excelling at a task or towards an objective or a performance outcome that you set out to achieve.
Whilst both subject cross over we have broken down some speaker ideas for you if you looking for speakers on either subject
