The Multifaceted nature of Wellbeing, Grit and Perseverance


Wellbeing is multi-dimensional – it is about managing the ebbs and flow of circumstances that you may find yourself in, at any given time. It is the unwavering paradigm shift of one’s mindset and an ongoing endeavor to adapt, adopt or alchemize.


The conversation will be a joint synergized flow of information, offering an exciting combination of topics that is relative to your well-being. Creating the conversation about nurturing the most important person in this world – YOU.


Our series is open to all industry professionals. If you find these topics fascinating, and appealing – most importantly – RELEVANT – we suggest that you connect, listen, participate, and actively incorporate the knowledge that you have learnt in your daily lives. Knowledge is power plus ACTION!
