Thriving Under Pressure

High-pressure situations have a habit of bringing out either the very worst or the very best in us. Some crumble, some cope, some not only survive but thrive under considerable pressure. And there are tools and tricks which make success more likely.

Tony shows us the science behind how pressure affects our performance, resilience, well-being and relationships…. and how to thrive when the pressure is high.

In today’s workplace, there is more time pressure than ever, and greater expectations on us to perform at our best; underperformance, burnout, presenteeism and stress-related illness are sadly becoming a familiar part of our language.

We all know that stress affects our health, but in this keynote, Tony shows us how it kills our performance as well, stopping us from doing our best thinking, robbing us of energy and making it harder to control our emotions and behaviour.

Take a journey around the body and brain and see what performance science can tell us about stress. Learn quick and simple re-charge techniques, strategies for emotional control and how effective sleeping and eating can help alleviate this potentially debilitating problem.
