NO PLAY, NO GAIN - SPEAKING AT PALEO F(X) 2016
Since 2010, I have been a speaker and workshop facilitator at conferences worldwide from London to Berlin, from Austin to Sydney. I had the honour and privilege of delivering a TEDx talk at TEDxRoyalTunbridgeWells in January 2019.
I love speaking to audiences of all sizes. I speak on a broad range of topics around health and wellbeing, focussing on the issues we encounter in the modern era based on lack of physical activity, unrelenting stress, social isolation, poor dietary choices and inadequate sleep. My core expertise is promoting physical activity that is not only fun and engaging, but most importantly healthful and accessible for all.
Movement is medicine!
If your organisation or association wants to know how to improve the health and wellbeing of their members, I can craft a workshop, seminar or presentation to deliver the action required not just for a quick-fix but providing a toolset to kick-start a new attitude towards life.

Recent Examples of Speaking Topics:
The Relationship Between Physical Activity and Good Health
If exercise came in pill form, we would only be too eager to take our keep-fit medicine. Even small doses extend longevity and prevent disease. Recent studies tell us that exercise reduces all-cause mortality risk, reduces cardiovascular related events, as well as warding off chronic lifestyle conditions such as type 2 diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and cancer. It will be proposed that the lack of activity is more detrimental to long-term health than more recognisable risk factors.
Healthspan vs Lifespan: Nature vs Pharma
Benjamin Franklin wrote that “in this world nothing can be certain except deaths and taxes.” One could demonstrate quite easily that if you are wealthy enough, you can certainly avoid paying taxes! However if one is healthy will this lead to increased longevity or are the use of pharmaceuticals a better option for the 21st Century?
No Play, No Gain
Despite appearing frivolous, play is essential for healthy human development. Not just for kids, but for adults too. I will review the justifications for play in the context of our ancestry and discuss the importance of incorporating a play regimen to support optimal health, movement and life.
