THE ROAD TO RESILIENCE with Andrew Findley

Andrew Findley is an experienced competitor in ultra endurance running events ranging from 200 km races in the 50 degree heat of the Sahara to a 300 km race across the French Alps in the biting cold - whilst climbing the equivalent of Everest three times.

The quality that all competitors need in such events is resilience – which can simply be summed up as the ability to keep going. In other words “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”.

But it is never just about toughness, there are many other qualities that Andrew has discovered during the events.

Today, Andrew is a motivational speaker talking to groups and businesses about resilience.  Of being able to cope successfully with the bad or difficult times – and you can be assured that Andrew experienced many of those during his participation in extreme conditions.

In this episode, Andrew talks about the conditions he faced, and what he found out about himself during the events that could help those facing challenges in business or life itself.
