“In order to deal with the reality of living in a tough world you need strength, which is built by exposure to discomfort, not fragility creating by coddling ourselves from it.”

Farrah Storr

The discomfort zone

If you never step outside your comfort zone, you’ll never discover the person you could become. In a humorous, engaging talk Farrah Storr, the award-winning editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, argues that we need to embrace brief moments of discomfort if we are to fulfil our potential.

Over her 17-year career as a journalist Farrah has done everything from undercover investigations in the world of cut-price cosmetic surgery to reporting from inside some of the world’s most luxurious fashion houses. She was also the founding editor-in-chief of Women’s Health magazine – the most successful women’s magazine launch of the decade.

In 2017 Farrah was cited as one of only 36 BAME leaders in The Guardian & Operation Black Votes UK’s 1000 Most Powerful list.
