Refresh to Relaunch 2022, Q & A Event
Two years ago, the world has been brought down to its knees, towered over by the COVID-19 virus.
Many of us are casualties or recovering from the pandemic, affected in one shape or form.
While some of us have had to make transitions—voluntarily, painfully, or forcefully — the rest of us suffered a dent in our confidence, productivity, mental health, general wellbeing, and so much more!
Thank heavens, the restrictions have been finally lifted!
We’re back to normal, at least in the best conceivable way.
Why the event?
Refresh to Relaunch 2022 Q & A Session was organised especially for you!
A team of specially selected guests came together to help put back the glide in your stride.
To help you find the shine in you, and to make you realise that it’s never too late to achieve your dreams.
To those of us faced with the challenges of making mid-career transitions, you’ll learn tips on how to find fulfilment in your journey.
We understand that your health is your wealth. So, you’ll learn valuable tips on how to make the left shift in your health and wellbeing.
We’re aware, too, that you can’t refresh optimally without gaining insight into your mental health.
Not to worry, we’ve got you covered on that one!
You’re in safe hands because you’ll be learning from individuals who are not only passionate about you, but also equipped with the expertise and experience required to help you make sense of where you are in your life’s journey.
