Resilience with Lizzie Simmonds

15 July 2020

Moving forward together

Though every day we are getting closer to a ‘new normal’ and a few colleagues are returning to the office, normal life still seems very far away. But we’ve come a long way since March 2020 and together we’re proving that #wecandothis. So, we want to discuss resilience.


Resilience is a crucial skill when it comes to managing adversity and adapting to change. In today’s challenging landscape, being resilient is more important than ever. But where does resilience come from? And how can we be intentional about building this critical skill, so we’re better equipped when facing adversity in the future?

We caught up with Olympian Lizzie Simmonds to discuss the lessons she learnt on resilience following her fourth-place finish at the London Olympics in 2012.
