The power of opportunity
Being woken out of a coma to be told that your hands and feet have been amputated may sound horrific, never mind life limiting. For Olivia Giles, it was life changing, however, it was also life enhancing. It brought new opportunities, in particular, the chance to reflect on the potential and capacity of ordinary people, such as herself, to achieve extraordinary feats when they have to – or really want to.
Olivia will explain how, as a result of her own experience, her perspective on life’s opportunities has changed. Her theory is that being alive and receptive to the opportunities that present themselves in every day life, is the first step to finding the courage to grasp them and the stamina to deliver on them.
