In discussion with Derrick: Stress Resilience

The third episode of our podcast series, In discussion with Derrick, deals with a highly relevant subject, with which most of us are familiar right now – stress resilience. Derrick and Dr Mark Orpen-Lyall discuss how resilience is NOT about “bouncing back” but rather about “bouncing forward”. Dr Mark Orpen-Lyall is a registered Organisational Psychologist and Training Consultant, with more than 20 years’ experience in the corporate world. He completed his PhD in building resilience. As a consultant, he has trained people in resilience all over the world, from neurosurgeons to portfolio managers, exco teams, call centre operators and administrative staff. Before freelance consulting, he set up the HR department at Allan Gray and then ran its Organisational Development department for 11 years.
