His most popular presentation in this volatile climate is:


We have little or no control over what is going to happen in the financial markets in the next year or so - even the financial gurus admit that they cannot forecast the immediate future with any certainty.

This uncertainty is causing enormous pressure and stress on individuals personally and in their business, and unless people are quickly able to implement strategies to improve their coping skills, this will cause dramatic effects not only in the work place, but in personal and family lives.

When people are under too much stress, energy levels drop, work performance lowers, relationships suffer and in the next year or two, there will be a substantial rise in heart attacks, divorce, depressive disorders and the early stages of cancer.

Dr John Tickell, international authority on stress management, says that we must nip this in the bud and do everything possible to take back control, or the consequences will follow.

'Exactly the same pressures are applied to winners and losers and yet some people are destroyed by the very pressures on which others thrive'.

The economic climate gives us the perfect opportunity to refine the way we do things - we can live our lives smarter and we can do business better.

During this entertaining and informative presentation, the good Doctor highlights the silent warning signs and shows how to follow through with The Seven Sure-Fire Strategies to vastly improve coping skills in these uncertain times.
