Best Life Design

Do you fundamentally believe that you shouldn’t feel as though you have to choose between your career and your family? That it should be possible to build a more purposeful life plan that enables you to achieve success in both aspects of life? If that’s the case, that belief is all you need to get started.

A natural curiosity to explore your life choices and an openness to apply some thinking to how you show up in life – based on the experiences of others in the same shoes – are the keys to developing your own Best Life Design. Join us for a workshop led by author, Gill McLaren, who will talk about her own corporate leadership journey. She will share how she embarked on a mission to take strategic and business planning approaches and apply them to the most important plan you will ever write: your own Life Plan.

Statistically Significant – Running life your way

We’ve never been busier and quite often we find ourselves on the ‘hamster wheel of life’, yet we want to be calm, relaxed, resilient, vital, confident and, most of all, happy. Following suit with last year’s event on becoming a ‘Chief Life Officer’, this year we will learn self-awareness and supportive actions for a sense of ease and well-being. Join us for a workshop led by mindfulness facilitator, Clarissa Hughes, on topics including:

Knowing your drainers and sustainers – how to avoid exhaustion and being overwhelmed
Learning to pace – breaking the cycle of doing too much and crashing as a consequence
Staying flexible – learning about our tendencies to either resist or feel overwhelmed by things we don’t like
The power of the breath – how we can use breath consciously to de-stress
