At times, life takes a direction that falls short of our expectations. It takes great strength to view these challenges not as threats but as opportunities - our chance to pivot and grow. As one door closes, a million more opens. Join TEDxHultLondon as we bring six speakers from six fields to share their stories. We will see how the world is limitless, filled with many opportunities for change.
