Mental Training & Visualisation

KEYNOTE (55 mins) - OPTIONAL: Workshops

Did you know that we can generate a 20% muscular growth by simply imagining exercising in the gym? That is because our brain cannot distinguish between what is real and what is imagination. The brain has also has an amazing capacity to adapt it's physical form due to specific thinking and training input. It's called 'neuro plasticity'.

Mental training is all about using that spectacular brain capacity to our own advantage and prepare ourselves better for upcoming challenges such as creating a new business, preparing for a sales appointment, training for a sports competition or simple making ourselves mentally and physically stronger.

Event & Project Management

Conferences and events are typical projects: the expectation of a well defined result on a very specific moment in time within a strict budget.

During a full day training we look into the flow and all parameters of effective project management, focussing on the different steps in the production: input, design, research, decision proces, action planning and the execution & feedback stage.

How to get the most interesting, effective, efficient and appealing meeting room set-up: creating the stage with image, light, sound and decor in relation to the set-up of the audience: it sounds simple but it's a science on it's own. Steve invents the ideal room set-up and visualises those ideas in 3D-plans as a consulting service to hotels, companies and associations.
