“This is fascinating technology that learns and develops as much as we do in this rapidly changing world,” says Hook.

Since launching earlier this year, the Resilience App has become a global platform for resilience assessments, training, and tracking. It currently has 7000 registered users across eight countries.
Brad says: “Our mission is to support every person and organisation across the planet with the tools they need to reduce distress and reach their potential.
“With over 4 billion people connected to the internet and supported by our growing team of global partners, we are poised to make a real and lasting impact.”
