We love talking about sleep and health!

Whether we're speaking in front of a live audience or on the radio, on a webinar or a guest speaker on a podcast, we love enlightening people about falling in love with bedtime again and getting healthy.

We promise we won't send you to sleep during our talks, but hopefully you will get a better night's sleep afterwards!

So many struggle with getting or staying healthy -  whether it's getting a good night's sleep, trying to eat a healthy diet, sticking to an exercise regime or managing stress levels.

 

In our talks, we explain:

  • The mysteries of sleep - how it works and why you need it.
  • Why modern living is disrupting our body clock.
  • The simple lifestyle changes you can make to send you off into a peaceful sleep that will help you wake up refreshed the next morning.
  • How a healthy diet keeps you energised, but needn't be tasteless, boring or expensive.
  • Why humans are meant to move and not sit all day.
  • Advise on the best workouts in the shortest amount of time without going near a gym.
  • How to manage your stress levels and keep zen like when life throws you a curved ball.

Our current signature talks are:

  • Sleep - how to have a better experience in bed
  • How to be happy, healthy and have more energy
  • Stressed to calm
  • How to avoid burnout

We can of course create talks to suit your audience.

We offer:

  • A series of 30 minute 'lunch and learn' or after work sessions
  • Workshops - 90 minutes, 3 hours or 6 hours (full day)

We have spoken at conferences and workshops, on webinars, podcasts and the radio. We're happy to cover other topics on health as well as sleep.
