The talk is called "Why my mother's lost Rubles turned me into a diplomat: how we gain achievement from loss".
Aida shared her view on why ambition is not everything, detailing a host of tools and techniques that help to focus on achievement. Aida emphasised that achievement is far more powerful, more enriching, and ultimately more meaningful.
