Opening Keynote: Kickass Confidence: Neuro-based Strategies & Secrets to STAND Out. Be Heard. Have Impact.
Smart, hard-working people aren’t guaranteed success. Confidence is the key unlocking our potential to lead better and achieve more. So why are some people more confident than others? Good news – its not genetic. It can be learned and regulated by anyone, at any time.  Apply the same high performance tools and techniques used by elite athletes, military and C-suite execs to pump your own brain with small win endorphins and build sustainable confidence neural pathways.
