Resilience:  How can we promote it within ourselves and others? Dr Lucy Hone

Resilience is a frequently used, but in reality little understood term. Dr Lucy Hone has made it her mission over the last ten years to understand resilience – what it means, who has it, what enables it and prevents it. In this lively Keynote presentation Dr Hone shares her extensive research on the topic, combining her academic knowledge with personal insights gleaned from living through the Christchurch earthquakes and personal loss. Lucy’s talk is inspirational, insightful and above all practical as she translates key research findings for real world impact.

Dr Lucy Hone is a director of the NZ Institute of Wellbeing and Resilience and a research associate at AUT University. She’s had her work published internationally in several leading academic journals. She is asked to write regularly for publications such as Next Magazine and Psychology Today on resilience and wellbeing. Most of her time is taken up working with schools, organisations and community groups to help them understand wellbeing and resilience and the complexities of promoting these two capabilities, so fundamental for thriving in the 21st century.

Living Life Unlimited – A story of survival & determination. Korrin Barrett

Korrin’s presentation gives an in-depth look into her life post surviving sepsis and the amputation of all four limbs. There will be a small focus on ‘what went wrong’ and what the signs were that lead Korrin to be the deteriorating patient with a 5% chance of survival.

Korrin will also give an overview of just how important the technology of ECMO combined with exceptional care from the medical staff along with her high level of fitness and health all contributed to her survival.

Korrin Barrett is ‘living life unlimited’. After surviving sepsis in 2012 resulting in amputations to her hands and feet,  Korrin became a quadruple amputee and her life changed forever but she hasn’t let this stop her. 

Korrin is extremely dedicated to working with the medical industry to ensure they have all the resources needed so what happened to her doesn’t happen again.  She has a passion for raising Sepsis awareness and for participating in research and development both nationally and worldwide.

By sharing her story and experiences she promises to ensure you feel inspired and empowered to overcome anything.
