resilience Keynote Speaker Rodney Flowers

“Resilience is something you want to develop before you need it. The catch is, you never know when you’re going to need it! Wouldn’t you rather be ready? If you build up your resilience now, you’ll be able to overcome any challenge that tries to get in your way.”
– Rodney Flowers, Keynote Speaker

Ideally, resilience is something you develop before you need it.

But we’re not living in an ideal world.

We’re living in a time of massive change and uncertainty. Of a global pandemic, social unrest and technological advancement. This era will go down in history as testing even the best players in the game of life.

People tend to settle for the status quo because it’s familiar and comfortable. Change and uncertainty threaten that stability.  

Challenges, setbacks and change are realities in work and in life. And they don’t need to stop you in your tracks.


When you master resilience, you and your team will have the strength, grit and endurance to overcome challenges and embrace change with courage. You’ll see adversity as an opportunity to grow and become better and stronger than you were before.

Resilience helps employees withstand, recover and grow through adversity. It boosts job satisfaction, productivity and engagement, while decreasing healthcare costs, absenteeism and turnover.

Resilience gives your team the tools to overcome any challenge that comes at them—from learning new software to thriving in the aftershocks of a global pandemic.

“Life throws challenges but with patience and resilience, you can convert every challenge into a new opportunity to grow.”

– Dr. Amit Ray
