About the Presenters (in brief)
John Moodie - is a well-known Educator, Speaker and Facilitator
John educates, consults and facilitates on strategies for Resilience & Bringing Out the Best in People…because it really is people that provide the best opportunity to not only improve your bottom line but also to create a real point of difference. John specializes in delivering high level culture, communication and client service skills, all with a major focus on developing Resilience.
In his presentation, John will discuss:
It's not about long term enduring, it's your ability to bend, instead of breaking during difficult times. It's not just desirable, it's actually essential!
Resiliance is about how you bounce back from difficulties and develop strategies to maintain a healthy life and business.
Resilience is central to building a high performing, agile workforce that can respond to changing demands. It enables organisations to build strength from within and the success of an organisation's ability to do this will impact its ability to ride the ebbs and flows of this sometimes-crazy world.
John can provide you with proven, workable strategies for building resilience in yourself, your people and your businesses. It's the ability to bend instead of breaking.
