Some reflections and thoughts on how to get what you need from a conference (for speakers, exhibitors, and attendees).
There are many aspects to wellbeing, and many things that organisations can do to help employees. One component is helping people to think well, and I want to explore just one element of that – the power of perspective – and illustrate it through two personal experiences.

Examining some of the themes from the True Strength interview with Dawn Smedley, starting with celebrating who we are: “Sometimes I should just look back and celebrate who I am fundamentally. We all should.”
As part of my True Strength project, I’m featuring interviews that dig deep into how people succeed and I was delighted to interview Dawn Smedley of O.C. Tanner alongside her manager Ian Feaver. The interview has lots of insights into how we succeed, about strengths, weaknesses, mindset, resilience, and how to help people be their best.
Feedback would happen all the time if we spoke the truth with positive intent. My contribution to the #FeedbackCarnival
How do you find success secrets? Well, you can’t as success depends on who you are and what you want. However, we can find inspiration in real stories of success and I’m working on a project – True Strength – to tell these stories.
