Change Won't Get Us Down

Life is full of change, and with change comes unknowns. Unknowns mean risk, and risk’s co-pilot is fear! What a fun combination! Many people allow their fear of unknowns stop them from moving forward, but not after this presentation! In this fun, interactive keynote, courage igniter Anne Bonney gifts the audience with tactics for dealing with that fear. She debunks common myths about fear, and energizes everyone to dive into the unknowns of change and create a strong, successful, resilient life.
4th & 5th Grade
