While we may have heard all our lives that courage is about heroes and bravery, there is an alternative way to unearth. This moment urges us to rewrite old heroes' narratives and turn the page into more regenerative and conscious ways of leading instead. It’s time to explore authentic, ethical leadership for all, and this keynote will explore how this can be done.
