Technology--and now the pandemic--have disrupted the skills students and professionals need to succeed.

In this conversation, Elan Divon will share his experience, from his upbringing in Israel to the founding of the successful Divon Academy, and discuss the three biggest predictors of success, and how to develop strength and capacity in these areas. You'll also learn about the triggers of stress and how to manage and minimize them.

Join to explore proven strategies for success that will benefit students, parents, or young professionals in this age of constant disruption.
