Sven gave a wonderfully insightful workshop to our leaders which was so well received by even the toughest cynics in the group. People continue to talk about the take outs from the session, which is a sign of how well it resonated. It has also given us a great platform as an organisation for continuing the discussion on the subject of resilience that he is so passionate about. Vero NZ Ltd Annual Business Leaders Day
