A Doctor hopes to offer inspiration and advice in a bid to battle the community’s woes in the current economic climate at a University of Sunderland lecture.
Dr Rebecca Williams Dinsdale, a prize-winning triple graduate of the University of Sunderland, who teaches self-discipline, organisation and enthusiasm will be back on campus to give the final Community Lecture of the year.
She is returning next Wednesday (September 5) to give her talk on, ‘Resurgam: How to survive and shine through adversity’. The lecture will look at what it means to overcome problems. A subject which is very relevant in the current economic climate.
Dr Dinsdale, said: “Mental, physical and emotional strength are abilities we can all develop with the appropriate guidance. We all are living through recessionary times and life can be a great blessing and a great challenge at the same time.
“When we encourage people to be more resilient then lots of things start to improve for them. I am always looking to be inspired and reassured through the heroic behaviour around me. There are silent stars in all of our communities and I expect there will be many in our audience.”
Dr Dinsdale is the founder of Lifejoy, which offers services for Corporate Training, Professional Speaking and Life-Coaching.
She is also patron of charity Headlight, a Sunderland-based mental health resource centre, which featured on the Channel Four programme, The Secret Millionaire.
This is the final talk of the year of Community Lectures at the University of Sunderland. The lecture is free to attend and will be held at the Prospect building, Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter’s.
The lecture starts at 2.30pm and last about one hour. Please arrive at the Prospect Building between 2pm and 2.30pm to register before the lecture begins.
There is (Pay) parking in the grounds of the campus and St Peter’s Metro Station is within a few minutes walking distance.
