Tony is a Performance Coach and former Royal Marine Commando who has been helping athletes, teams and organisations improve their performance, resilience and wellbeing for the last seventeen years.

Tony will discuss:

  • How little changes in our behaviour can have a profound impact on our health, wellbeing, overall satisfaction and performance 
  • Types of normal, but not so perfect daily routines, and the fatigue and negative consequences associated with them
  • The effects of the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system and how to control it in our daily work life
  • Advice on simple, healthy nutrition choices
  • The science of sleep, the costs of poor quality or quantity of sleep and the benefits of good quality sleep, along with some practical advice of how to achieve this.

Tony has coached and delivered training for organisations such as Vodafone, Hewlett Packard, GlaxoSmithKline, RBS, NHS and Microsoft, to name but a few.

This event is free to attend but please register here.
