13th April 2021 – Remove Before Flight

Your Attitude determines your Altitude

Join the High Flyers and learn what it takes to get your speaking business off the ground and let it soar at PSA South West in April

Mindsets, Attitudes and Assumptions can prevent us from achieving our potential in business and as a speaker.

Our Speakers this month are focusing on Mindset – and how to identify and change unhealthy or unhelpful mindsets that need to be Removed Before Flight and let your speaking business soar.

Duncan Bhaskaran Brown:
“Too many people handle stress with a glass of wine or a slice of cake. But that doesn’t work. Trust me, I tried it for 20 years. One glass leads to another, one slice leads to another, it all leads to problems.

My gentle and humorous keynote will show you how I overcame indulgence. That helped me become a better husband, a better father and a better speaker. At the heart of my transformation was a simple idea that doesn’t require monk-like dedication.

Ultimately, it will show you that mindset matters and help you to:
Improve your relationship with alcohol so you can increase your productivity and discover time you didn’t know existed.
Push indulgence out of your diet, so you can improve your performance and increase your energy on stage.

But most of all, you can increase your wellbeing, your happiness and your enjoyment of life.”

William Buist:
“Mindset” is one of those things that that is talked about often and yet isn’t easy to define. It matters because how we think affects how we do our work, and how we do the work affects how we are seen by others in the world (of business) and ourselves.

Every time you have work to do you will have an emotional reaction to it. Are you excited, challenged, frustrated, angry, motivated, delighted or ecstatic? Is that a rational or irrational response?

Together we will explore how to take control of your mindset to get more done and ensure you are always able to create a positive mindset to be Building Better Business.

We look forward to seeing you on 13th April at 3pm!
