A self-leadership program for peak performance & optimal wellbeing.

Perth 11-12th July 2019 | Mello House, State Buildings of Western Australia

In an exponential world, we need exponential mindsets. Exponential mindsets feed off volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. Exponential mindsets perform at 10x the rate of their peers. Exponential mindsets elegantly shift states to get the job done. And wisely master their nervous systems for optimal wellbeing and peak performance. If you’re a leader, parent, teacher, creative, intra-preneur or entrepreneur ready to elevate your mental wellbeing, raise your consciousness and level-up your performance (in every aspect), this program is for you.

In partnership with:


Course Overview

Using an anti-fragile framework designed to strengthen and deepen as the challenges get greater, this program offers a scientific guide for optimal wellbeing and peak performance through the mastering of our innate human-ness.

It will wire you for a future of flourishing.

Yes. All resources will be downloadable and recordings of the masterclasses will be made available the same day as the live delivery.

Available to use in a desktop browser or smart phone APP, it's one of the best things to come out of Silicon Valley for purpose led peeps on a mission.

+ What if I miss the live masterclasses?

That's ok. You can access the recording at any time and view at a more convenient time. The benefit of tuning in live is you will have the opportunity to ask questions in real time.

+ Why is the Live Immersion important?

Deep connection is a core theme of this work. One of the greatest gifts I can give you is access to a group of beloved fellow travellers. If you are unable to make the Live Immersion we also have an 100% online cohort starting on 23 July 2019. You can enrol in this here.
