Having worked in the field of human performance and stress management for nearly a decade, Michael has been a pioneer in infusing the two worlds of mental wellbeing and data driven insights. With these two elements, you are truly able to quantify, measure and change an individual’s ability to attain true mental wellbeing and optimal performance.Michael feels his objective is to take all of the guesswork away from managing stress and achieving the best version of oneself. This is because the body and how it responds in situations is a mirror to the mind and how an individual feels. If individuals can learn to interpret and control the body, they have the ability to respond in a conscious and intentional way, increasing the chances of our desired outcomes to be achieved.
