Some people would argue that an entrepreneurial mindset includes what Dr Carol Dweck, Stanford University calls a ‘Growth Mindset’. The ability to learn from failure and setbacks and bounce back to success. As the entrepreneurial journey can be a bumpy one it makes this mindset a must have skill to have.
Join Annika Zeyen, triple Paralympic medal winner on Thursday 9th March 2017 and learn how a ‘Growth Mindset’ and winning attitude can help you achieve triumph over adversity. Annika will share her inspiring story on how she overcame a horseback riding accident at the age of 14, which left her paralysed.
