George Bakalios will be giving a presentation at TCUK19 entitled “Making the most of challenging situations or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Challenge”.

 

In the fast pacing world of technology nothing remains the same for a long time. New challenges come up every day and work can become overwhelming very easily. In this presentation I will talk about how one can embrace the challenges, see the positive side of them, and how this can develop the individual’s skills and boost their careers. I will be using my personal journey as an example and how the various challenges I faced over the years proved to be opportunities and equipped me with the skills to progress my career.
