Free Talk: ‘Resilience’ by Leela Bassi

Have you ever wondered what life would be like if we were not to give up at the first instance?

Whilst resilience is crucial in today’s life, it is not an innate skill. It can sometimes takes many years of hard work to build.

Leela Bassi shares her inspiring story about her Arctic Circle Journey, and explores the challenge of overcoming self–restricting beliefs and how to establish a mental strength which can turn setbacks and failures into success stories.

Leela is an International Business Woman, and a compelling communicator; as President of Toastmaster International club in Windsor Leela has inherited invaluable leadership skills & given educational talks as well as delivered countless motivational speeches to different audiences. Leela has that ineffable quality that enables her to stay optimistic at all times.

In April 2015, Leela was a member of an all-female team who undertook a 100 kilometre ski-trek across Baffin Island in the Arctic Circle in temperatures down to -42 C and with winds of  up to 80 KM per hour, sleeping in tents on the ice with emergency help over 24hrs away. The expedition was part of an initiative to challenge how people think about diversity and inclusion.Led by professional adventurer and gender equality advocate Debra Searle MVO MBE and twin sister Hayley Barnard, the expedition proved just what can be achieved when you challenge your self – belief.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A session.
