The Resilient Leader

Malta's most influential companies, inspiring talks & lively participation, effective networking.

24 February 2017 | Radisson Blu Golden Sands Resort and Spa

Complexity. Risk. The downside of size. These are the challenges presented to businesses which successfully attain growth. The impact of a plunge in revenue hits harder, the loss of a key person leaves a deeper dent, a crisis in a key market knocks a cornerstone down.

The BLMCONFERENCE2017 conference theme, ‘The Resilient Leader’, will explore all this in an exciting context with high quality keynote presentations.

The Resilient Leader


Resilient leaders act. Whatever the odds stacked against them, resilient leaders dig deep, adapt, regroup, keep going.

They are strong and fragile, harsh and sensitive, courageous and terrified, dead serious and able to poke fun at themselves – all at the same time. What makes them different is their belief in keeping it together. They bounce back and see that, yes, the dots have connected. And most importantly, they learn from every experience.

Resilience is not about skills or management – it is about the ability to stay the course, see things through, turn things around. Resilient leaders shoulder responsibility and take gut- wrenching decisions for the greater good.


Resilience is displayed over time and transforms itself into fascinating stories. BLM brings you three inspiring keynote speakers for a motivational morning that promises to be memorable.
