About The Event
Join us to wrap up an eventful year
No one could have predicted the year that was 2020, where we were rocked by global pandemic, economic meltdowns, race protests, remote working, home schooling and lockdowns. As we wrap up 2020, we invite you to join us in celebration of the human spirit for enduring all these with grace and courage. We’ve asked four guests from all walks of life to tell us their stories – how they woke up one day in 2020 to find their jobs and their lives turned upside down and how they learned to adapt, refocus and thrive. Get ready to be inspired so you can make 2021 all you want it to be.
