Please join us as Richard Cox Braden takes us through an interactive keynote on:

THE POWER OF FAILURE – Thriving in Ambiguity

Most of us have a hate-hate relationship with failure and ambiguity. Fear of failure can be a paralyzing inhibitor of growth, and ultimately, success. In this highly interactive session, you will explore your personal relationship to failure and risk and discover ways to embrace and harness the power of failure. Participants will learn the basic principles that allow you to thrive in ambiguity, by increasing resilience and agility to adapt quickly to changes.
