Super excited to be giving a keynote the Southern Hemisphere's largest annual Rail Industry event. Rail, like other industries is made of people, and with people comes the need for union, connection, heart centred customer service and putting the needs of others first. Which sounds a lot like yoga.
Work+Life X 2018 is a conference for people seeking to consciously design their work-life experience.
Over two carefully curated days participants will explore the intersection between our personal and professional selves and take a journey into re-imagining how we craft these modern, working lives of ours.
We'll dive into what it means to take a holistic and integrated approach to our ever-overlapping relationships between business, career, leadership and life. Join us as we tackle the challenges and opportunities of working in a world that asks us to bring all of who we are to what we do.
We'll be talking about boundaries, nature, culture, digital nutrition, family life, flexible working, wellbeing, energy, spirituality, community, the whole self and a whole lot more.
