Agenda:

Title: What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. 

Speaker: Michelle Sybesma, Owner, Professional Skills Consulting, Inc. 

Agenda:
- 6:00 - 6:45 pm: General Networking
- 6:45 - 7:15 pm: Welcome and Introductions
- 7:15 - 8:00 pm: Our Program
- 8:15 pm: Adjournment

Our speaker will be Mrs. Michelle Sybesma, long-time owner and lead consultant of Professional Skills Consulting, Inc., and a long-time Fishers resident and community stalwart (Rotary, Chamber of Commerce, etc.). For this evening, however, her message is not primarily professional in nature, but deeply personal.

You see, on August 29, 2015, her husband, Bryan, was involved in a bicycle accident, suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI), which changed their lives dramatically from that day forward. Michelle and Bryan’s story of the accident, his medical treatment, rehabilitation and recovery (Michelle calls today’s Bryan “Bryan 2.0”), the support network which allowed Michelle and her family to cope and function and the lessons learned from their experience provide meaningful insights for us all as we proceed through life, and face life’s inevitable ups and downs, twists and turns, bumps and bruises. For many of these events and happenings in the road of life, there is no roadmap to follow as we cope, adjust and adapt. Perhaps the best teacher is the experience of others who have faced daunting obstacles and challenges. Although the specific traumatic event is certainly unique to the person, time and place, Michelle and her family’s experience is living proof of the old adage that “what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.” In this case, literally.

So, come hear the story of a modern miracle in recovery and adaptation. It will be an evening you won’t regret attending.

Please note: This meeting is not open to the general public. Only current or potential FENG members with approximately 15 years of finance experience are invited to attend.
