A talk on resilience by Lt. Col. Stewart Hill
Resilience: Lt. Col. Stewart Hill - Former high flying British Army officer, brain injury survivor and living proof of how to maximise personal potential and minimise stress.
Stewart is living proof of how to unleash the magnificent potential of the brain. He has taken his wartime experiences and now living with a catastrophic head injury, helps leaders understand how they can combat stress, think more clearly and become more productive. All by harnessing the power of the brain.
Stewart was one of the most talented British Army officers of his generation until a bomb exploded into his brain whilst on operations in Afghanistan. As Stewart embarked upon his first few steps through rehabilitation the markedly different effects of a 'brain injury' hit home. He suffered changes to his entire cognitive behaviour and personality. He has had to manage life with brain impairments including impaired memory, loss of executive functioning skills and deep frustrations brought on by an inability to carry out everyday tasks as he used to, while retaining his intellect and aspirations to excel. He has turned that disaster into discovery and continues to go from strength to strength with a brain severely damaged by shrapnel.
A powerful and engaging speaker, Stewart will share the lessons, tools and techniques he has learned to help individuals deal better with the rigours and demands of daily life, and improve their resilience – whatever challenges they (we) face.
