Topic: Building Your Professional Resilience for a Stronger Tomorrow
Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce
1945 Fruitville Road
Sarasota, FL 34236

Please join us as we hear from Kristi Hoskinson, from FCCI Insurance Group, speak on the power of resiliency. What makes a person thrive during transition and change, maintain flexibility during tough times, and perform their best in the midst of difficulties? It’s the degree of resilience – the capacity we all have to prepare, recover, and adapt in the face of adversity, stress, and challenge.

Kristi will share easy-to-apply techniques to build our resilience capacity, improve our productivity and performance, and manage difficult situations with confidence, professionalism, and strength. Plan today for a stronger tomorrow.
