TOPIC: Work SMARTER, not HARDER by being physically, mentally, and emotionally resilient.

We have been ‘knocked sideways’ by massive waves of change. We need to learn how to be more resilient, and BOUNCE FORWARD: mentally; physically as well as emotionally. To ride these waves of change, we need to be ‘agile’, calm, and energized. There are simple and efficient ways to boost your physical energy, mental stamina, and emotional intelligence. In fun, practical ways, Joni shares ‘bio-hacks’, which are all underpinned by neuroscience, so that you can live a life of ‘va va voom’, and therefore can be the BEST version of yourself!

Audience Takeaways

  •  Recognise the three dimensions of resilience, and how interrelated they are.

  • Explain that a GROWTH MINDSET means BOUNCING FORWARD. Bouncing back is not an option.

  • Given the neuroscience underpinning of these bio-hacks, participants will recognise the important of each of them.

  • They will then select from 10 Biohacking strategies that ‘ones’ that resonate with their lifestyle choices.

“It was such a pleasure hearing Joni speak and my honor to share the stage too at the recent Xcelerate convention organised by the Malaysian Association of professional Speakers.I learned many things, 10 WAYS ON HOW TO WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER and among the list was a quick energiser, a pick me up workout on the spot which I found to be very effective. Thank you so much.

“We were incredibly lucky to have Joni speak to us at Prodigy Finance during a Lunch & Learn session. Joni was brilliant in that she managed to pack so much valuable information on how to BOOST your Resilience during a tight 30 minute time-slot, yet kept it simple and practical. 

Her energy and enthusiasm is contagious and left us all feeling motivated – something so necessary at this time of the year. 

My colleagues have all raved about the session – we can’t wait for the next one!”
