Speaker 1: Jonathan Lincolne
The great Stoic philosopher Epictetus wrote “People are not disturbed by things, but by their perception of things.”
Most of us would be aware that our perceptions are our reality. But what do we do if our perceptions, the way we are seeing the world, or the way we are seeing ourselves in the world are not producing the results we want? What if our perceptions and belief systems are hindering our success, happiness and effectiveness as speakers and as humans?
In this session we will look at the psychological reality of our perceptions, how they are formed and how they impact on us. We will then look at a practical tool we can use to change hindering perceptions and belief systems into more helpful and effective perceptions. This very practical mindset tool is based on the latest neuropsychological research from the Huberman Lab at Stanford University.

Speaker 2: Shivani Gupta CSP in conversation with Mel Kettle
Wellness Hacks for Speakers
As speakers we have faced more change and uncertainty than many professions. A year ago most of us lost most of our work – at least, work as we know it. A year on, how are we looking after ourselves physical, mentally and emotionally?
In this session, Shivani Gupta CSP will be interviewed by Mel Kettle. They will explore the impact of being a busy speaker and how we can take action to better look after ourselves. What do we need to look after our wellbeing? Is meditation really all it’s cracked up to be? What is the one thing we should all be doing to manage our health?
Shivani works with influential leaders to re-engineer workforces for the future. She describes herself as a Leadership Engineer who guides influential leaders to create workplaces of the future with clarity, wisdom and action. Shivani is also the founder and director of several companies, including several day spas. She is a mum, wife, daughter, meditator, philanthropist, friend, yogee and she loves a great coffee.
