There is not a person in Ireland that has not in some way been affected by COVID-19 and it’s impact. As business people we have had to adapt, be resilient and keep going. But that’s hard. Most people I’ve spoken to have shared they feel exhausted and fatigued by the wearing nature of this crisis.

The good news is that if you follow a few proven simple steps you can feel positive even in the face of adversity. I’ve shared these tools and techniques with thousands of business people since March. The impact has been phenomenal – people have reported much higher energy levels, clearer thinking and a sense of calm when they’ve used the tools and techniques. So much so that this talk has become our best selling product. Companies like HSBC, AIB, Bord Bia, Tourism Ireland, Stacked, Ornua and many more have reported greater positivity as a result.

What you get?

  • This 1 hour session is about you investing in your energy and the energy of the people around you.   
  • It’s highly interactive with physical exercises, guided meditation, clarity tools and powerful insights.
  • The delivery is upbeat, entertaining and practical.
  • At the end of the session you will know how to use techniques to create positivity.
  • The tools are really powerful but really simply and can applied immediately.

Who is for?

Everyone – this pandemic is totally democratic. Whether you are a student or a CEO you need to know these tools so that you can manage your most valuable resource, your own energy.

What we cover?

  1. How to manage our mental state
  2. Things always get better – developing positivity
  3. Creating habits for good energy management while remote working
