We each have our own challenges to overcome, whether mental or physical, public or private. But what can we do when those challenges slow us down and knock us off course? How can we find our way back to our goals?

Join our panel of alumni speakers as they share their stories about how they found their way through difficult situations and setbacks, sharing advice to help you identify when and how to take a break, adjust your strategy and hit the ground running again. Taking care of yourself is just as important as the goal you’re pursuing and our speakers will help provide you with techniques to help you bounce back and finish strong.
