Stories to Inspire Change - Turning Adversity into Opportunity

25 September, 16:00 - 20:00

Doltone House, 3/181 Elizabeth St, Sydney, Australia

AXA XL and our partner Norton Rose Fulbright are proud to once again be hosting the annual Dive In Festival's opening night event.

Story-telling can be a powerful tool for sharing, communicating and helping drive change, a chance to understand a situation from another person’s perspective.

We all have a part to play in making each other’s lives better, both from a personal and a business perspective, thus empowering others to do the same.

But how can personal experiences translate into opportunities for business success?

Join us as we listen to the stories of some truly inspiring individuals who have seen the opportunities presented by adverse and challenging circumstances in their lives, and turned them to their advantage, successfully effecting positive changes in local and international communities.
