Talk 1 Work Life Balance

“The elusive concept of work-life balance does not exist. Balance is not the goal, nor the pathway to happiness. I like the word integration much better. It’s about work and family, but also taking care of yourself and finding your own way that enables you to rethink, restore, create, grow and achieve without burnout, without decimating your health and without neglecting your personal life.

“The process of getting to know yourself more fully is an exciting journey because the resulting awareness helps to make sense of this crazy, beautiful and intriguing life.”


Talk 2 Detoxing your mind

Our minds are cluttered; we spend all our time going through a checklist of things to do. How about taking time out to learn to use your mind more efficiently – it is our most powerful asset, both in the work place and at home.

This talk will offer practical exercises for both detoxing the mind and starting to develop the mindful awareness central to getting to know yourself better, and making a start on the life redesign process.


Talk 3 Developing emotional resilience at work

Resilience is the ability to withstand or recover from difficult situations. It includes our capacity to make the best of things, cope with stress and rise to the occasion. We can also become more skilful at noticing when things start to go off-course, giving ourselves the chance to rectify problems at an early stage.

This interactive talk offers skills and strategies that help our resilience grow.


Talk 4 Managing stress

This one-hour interactive workshop aims to explore the following:

  • The cost of ignoring stress
  • How to recognise stress in yourself and others
  • Developing self confidence
  • Anxiety and stress management techniques.
  • Life redesign
