SPEAK: Resilience


Welcome to the next pop-up event from SPEAK, the public speaking platform for people with ideas and stories. The theme for this pop-up is “Resilience” where we will be exploring the ideas and stories of 10 unique and diverse individuals in relation to our theme. Brought to you by producers George Andriopoulos, Fred P. Banny, and Jason Martin.

“It is really wonderful how much resilience there is in human nature. Let any obstructing cause, no matter what, be removed in any way, even by death, and we fly back to first principles of hope and enjoyment.”

Bram Stoker

SPEAK: Resilience is a powerful theme that explores what “Resilience” means from 10 different perspectives. The definitions of resilience are: the capacity to withstand or to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness AND the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity. These 10 talks will feature creative takes on the impact of “Resilience” on their lives and the lives of those around them.
