As 2017 comes to a close, the teams behind both The Amazing Trekkers Club (Asia) and PAUSE Magazine ("PAUSE") are happy to come together to co-create a space for their members that combines both dialogue and discussion with the opportunity to collectively slow down, reflect and reconnect with the self. The details of the event are as follows:
23rd November 2017
The Co. @ 99 Duxton Road
The event will be graced by:
– Award-winning Travel Producer/Presenter, Eco-advocate (& Yoga enthusiast) Denise Keller, who will join in the dialogue alongside

Briefly, the discussion will touch on:
The tenacity required to scale mountains, with a focus on Hazleen's personal anecdotes from conquering 33 peaks since she started climbing in 2014;
Insights from Ferina's personal life with regard to overcoming anxiety and depression, which requires its own brand of mental agility and grit;
Perspectives on finding balance and centredness amidst a hectic schedule, to which Denise is no stranger to, having had to travel extensively throughout her career;
