COVID-19 turned the world upside down and showed us how fragile life is, and how quickly things can change from normal to desperate. In the wake of the pandemic, now is a good time to step back, re-evaluate our careers and life path, and consider a potential change in direction (and attitude). Drawing from his own experiences and anecdotes of well-known people who have overcome struggles on their road to eventual success, speaker Mike Lyons will inspire the audience to chase their daydreams while sharing tangible and achievable steps to help convert those daydreams into reality.
