About this event
If you’ve ever wondered what the word “resilience” really means, or how you can help yourself and your teams cope with constant challenge and change, then this session is for you. While there are many resilience researchers in the world, the death of her 12-year old daughter in a tragic road accident, makes Dr Lucy Hone’s skillset quite unique.
Co-director of the New Zealand Institute of Wellbeing & Resilience and adjunct senior fellow at the University of Canterbury, Lucy speaks at global conferences, creates online courses, writes books, academic articles and blogs to spread her insights far and wide. Her PhD was acknowledged internationally for its outstanding contribution to wellbeing science and her research is published in leading psychology journals. Her best- selling book, Resilient Grieving, and her hugely popular TED talk, Three Secrets of Resilient People (2.6 million views) have delivered Dr Hone’s refreshing approach to global audiences. Her work has been featured in international media including the Guardian and the Washington Post, the BBC and ABC, Channel News Asia, Swedish Television, The Bolt Report Australia and TVNZ.
Lucy’s engaging style, and deep knowledge of these topics, makes her one of the world’s foremost presenters on resilience. However, it is her self-effacing humour, and the way she manages to relate academic findings to her own life (and yours!) that make her sessions so useful and enjoyable.
