Globally renowned as an advocate for sustainable peace and a

valuable resource in countering violent extremism, Gill Hicks is

widely considered one of the world's most thought-provoking,

powerful and life-affirming speakers

Her devotion to making a personal greater contribution and positive difference to the urgency of building peace

was realised when she was made permanently injured in the London bombings on July 7th, 2005.

Her 'lived experience' -- from survival to rehabilitation as a double amputee -- created a clear demarcation from

all she had known before the bombings: at the helm of some of the UK's most prestigious and respected

institutions, including Publishing Director of the architecture, design and contemporary culture magazine,

Blueprint, Director of the Dangerous Minds design consultancy, and Head Curator at the Design Council, along

with being one of the first women to be invited to become a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of

Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.

Her 'second life' is built on what she describes as a series of conscious choices, mindfulness and being aware of

the importance of the moment. Gill shares what she has learned about herself, humanity and the extraordinary

and inherent ability to rise in the wake of adversity.
