Health & Performance Expert, Physiologist, Bestselling Author

Imagine if work was a place where you went to get healthier and perform to your potential...

There are problems standing in the way of making that dream a reality. The world is faced with 4 inter-related epidemics - sleeplessness, obesity, inactivity and mental illness. Fortunately, the scientific answers to these problems are available today. Sleep soundly. Eat Smarter. Move More. Think Clearly.

In this keynote, Dr. Wells presents the scientific solution to these global challenges. Using stories, research and simple tactics, Dr. Wells clearly outlines how to improve your health, supercharge your life and ultimately reach your full potential.

This presentation is based on Dr. Wells' new book The Ripple Effect.

Leadership & Performance Expert

What Your Signature Says About Your Leadership Style

We could all benefit from receiving an accurate, unbiased and different snapshot of our weaknesses and strengths to help us grow. Personal development is leadership development. But what if traditional performance reviews have been shown to be demeaning to employees and have a negative effect on organizational culture.

Join 20-year handwriting analyst-grapho-therapist and certified leadership trainer at The Leadership Circle, Jamie Mason Cohen as he explores why performance reviews don't work, what we need to do instead, and how to use simple, unconventional and effective self-assessment tools to bring out the potential in every individual in your organization.

Individual audience members will leave feeling recognized for the unique individuals that they are without discounting the success they've already had. They'll experience something new and unique because they've seen it all and done it all before. Your traits are your story; let's write the next chapter.

Audiences will learn:

  • How to identify your weaknesses and strengths on the spot to help you gain a new level of self-awareness through your handwriting traits.
  • Real business world strategies to deploy your strengths wisely so that they grow and don't become liabilities.
  • Prescriptive, one-on-one speed handwriting analysis after the talk that can lead to breakthrough aha moments in your life.

Day 2 - November 6, 2019

Tool Shed Brewing Company

Unleashing Your Disruptive Behaviour

The concept of "Disruptive Marketing" has become so buzz-wordy that we often mistake simply being "innovative" with being disrupting.

Truly standing out in a tough economy, against monster-sized competition requires the use of part of our brains we don't often access. In fact, we've been taught to suppress our disruptive behaviour since childhood - but now it's time to harness those powers of disruption for the benefit of successes as entrepreneurs.

Graham Sherman has been shaking things up since he worked on private-sector government and military contracts throughout Afghanistan, to when he began brewing beer and changing the game for small breweries across Alberta.

Tool Shed Brewing Company's unique approach to disrupting the market has led to it being nominated for Canadian Entrepreneur of the Year; being named as Calgary's "Top 40 under 40"; and the brewery's position in the top five percent of breweries in North America.

After hearing Graham's story and insights, you'll walk away incredibly inspired and with a clear path to unleashing your own disruptive behaviour to transform your business.
