A resilience focus aligned with a wellbeing lens can help us to better identify future risks and possibilities.  Lastly, you will apply the tools of neuroscience and explore strategies to better manage you physical, mental and emotional wellbeing towards sustaining a higher level of personal and professional performance.

Overall, really informative, Karima was a fantastic speaker and it helped me understand my personal bias.
