Topic: "Be Titanium - Anchoring yourself in waves of change"
The world stops for no one. When change keeps coming, when challenges seem unrelenting and when the world seems to be doubting you, what do you do? In this constantly dynamic and sometimes overwhelming environment, having a clear sense of purpose and being guided by a clear set of values will help to anchor us even as tides of change sweep over us.
