|9:15am||KEYNOTE: Finding the resilience within|
In her book, Any Ordinary Day, Leigh Sales talks intimately with people who’ve faced the unimaginable, from terrorism to natural disaster to simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Expecting broken lives, she instead finds strength, hope, even humor. Leigh brilliantly condenses the cutting-edge research on the way the human brain processes fear and grief. This book is about what happens when ordinary people, on ordinary days, are forced to suddenly find the resilience most of us don’t know we have.
Leigh Sales AM is an Australian journalist and author. She is the host of the Australian television channel ABC’s flagship news and current affairs program 7.30. In 2019, she was awarded an Order of Australia for her services to broadcast journalism.
