After writing my article the “The Art of Saying No”, I met with one of our speakers for the FEW 2018 Conferences, Naomi Abbott, we were discussing that receiving a No and how you react is also important. Both of us have had situations where people have wanted us to participate in things we were not available for and when we said no wasn’t taken very well.

Tracey Sofra, shares with us some insight to her key note The Power of Self Belief at the upcoming Adelaide and Perth Making a Difference – Leadership Conferences.

I often fly back and forth from Melbourne to Sydney and I am still surprised how many people have confidential conversations that everyone can hear. It is like they think they have this invisible bubble around them and it is OK to speak as loud as they want.

This equates to an estimated $147 billion boost to the economy.
