9.45 a.m. - 10.00 a.m. Break

10.00 a.m. - 10.45 a.m. Concurrent Sessions - Session A - Movement Matters - Presented by Rob Jackson - High Performance Coach

Movement is essential for optimal human performance but many of us don’t make it a priority. Rob believes that everyone can (and should!) build activity into their daily life. He will discuss the importance of exercise as well as dispelling common exercise and body composition myths.

Take away a fresh perspective on movement, and learn how to incorporate Rob’s simple yet effective mobility tips to get you on the path to optimal performance.

10.00 a.m. - 10.45 a.m. Concurrent Sessions - Session B - The Healthy Mind - Presented by Katherine Geary - Naturopath

A recent report on mental health in the Australian workforce revealed one in five Australians (21%) have taken time off work in the past 12 months because they felt stressed or mentally unhealthy. When we are under pressure, it’s easy to slip into patterns of poor food choices, eating on the run and sacrificing sleep in the pursuit of productivity. The ultimate effect of these behaviours is a reduction in our brain power, leaving us more exposed to stress, anxiety and a decline in intellect.

Katherine outlines the importance of nutrition, sleep and daily rituals in creating mental resilience and optimising brain function, and offers an easy-to-implement action plan to supercharge your mind.

10.45 a.m. - 11.00 Break

11.00 a.m. - 11.45 a.m. Concurrent Sessions - Session C - The Power of Positive Psychology - Presented by Dina Ward - Psychologist

Prolonged or excessive stress can contribute to the development of anxiety and depression, increase your risk of injury and burnout, and have a detrimental effect on your relationships. The science of positive psychology looks at ways to combat stress by enhancing happiness and optimism, contributing to overall wellbeing and a greater sense of purpose.

Spearheaded by the work of Professor Martin Seligman, a growing body of research is focusing on what makes individuals thrive and flourish. Learn how to harness the power of positive psychology to develop your positive traits, optimise your relationships and perhaps even turn your work into your calling.

11.00 a.m. - 11.45 a.m. Concurrent Sessions - Session D - The High Performer's Identity - Presented by Emma Gladwell - Provisional Psychologist

Research indicates that many of us consider our career to be an extremely important element of identity. We are dedicating more and more of our lives to work, and in an era where a person’s choice of profession is presumed to reflect their personality and abilities, it’s hardly surprising that career and identity are often intimately intertwined.

Employers are becoming more encouraging of staff bringing their ‘whole selves’ to work, but what if one’s identity is inextricably linked with one’s career? If our careers are so integral to our sense of self – how does this affect the way we cope with career transitions, setbacks or retirement?

When the lines between ‘person’ and ‘profession’ are blurred, work-life balance can be challenging to maintain.

Emma is currently completing her thesis entitled ‘Life After Sport’, which explores mental health experiences of Australian athletes following retirement. She will present cutting-edge performance psychology findings relevant to all professions, and explain the importance of developing a strong, resilient sense of self – independent of one’s performance achievements or current career status.

11.45 a.m. - 12 noon Break

12 noon - 12.45 p.m. Communicating with Confidence - Presented by Sarah Sutherland - Actor & Director

Confident communicators inspire confidence in others. Yet speaking to a crowd, addressing a board of superiors, or even presenting your 'best' self in an interview can provoke a level of anxiety that can derail even the most assured among us.

This workshop will look at simple ways to communicate with confidence, clarity and charisma - when the stakes are high and your nerves are even higher. Learn to harness your natural stress response and use it to spur you on rather than paralyse you, with these practical and creative ways to turn tension around.

12.45 p.m. - 1 p.m. Closing - Presented by Gerard Ward and Luke Nicholls
