July 2022 | Finding purpose in adversity by Rita Siaw

Webinar Description

Adversity; It comes to us all. In our everyday lives, careers, in our relationships, finances, etc.

Life can just not be without adversity. Sometimes we find it, other times it finds us.

While many people can get stuck, crushed or broken by adversity, others are able to rise and grow through them.

In Rita's short time here on earth, she has had more than a fair share of adversity. From her childhood to adulthood, She has surmounted some of the toughest adversities as a little girl from an African village can bear. Even as she grew older into a woman, she still faced many adversities but found a way to grow through them and found her purpose.

You may not be that little girl from Africa nor go through the adversities Rita went through. But we all have our challenges. We all get to find ourselves in situations and moments when we get stuck and pressed by adversity.

In her keynote, she will share with you her experiences, how to step-by-step to rise through and find purpose in adversity and how to pursue that purpose to live a life of significance beyond career success.
