Event description


The Exeter PA Network is delighted to be able to announce details of its second formal development event of 2017 with a thought-provoking session on hardiness and resilience. We have secured a fantastic speaker - Phil Sampson of Sampson Hall.

We'll be taking you to a new venue too - for this event we will be hosted by our dear friends at Deer Park Country House Hotel.

More about the topic

Hardiness and resilience are key components in every executive’s portfolio and as key to those who support them. We live in an ever changing, volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world, where individuals have to be ready to react to change at any moment.

Today’s world is a world that is over cluttered with news, fake news and fabrication. A world where leadership and personal resilience and hardiness are paramount yet often missing; an unequal world that at times lacks direction, principles and ethics where individuals often feel alone and hence have to fall back upon their inner strength.

Following on from Russell Beck's glimpse into the future this seminar will look at how we can best prepare for our brave new world personally and professionally in order to make the most out of ourselves.

This seminar will look at the four key tenants of mental toughness: Confidence, Control, Challenge and Commitment and how these can be measured and developed. It will help those who attend in fulfilling their roles to the very best of their ability.

Our speaker: Phil Sampson of Sampson Hall
