I am a sports enthusiast as well (basketball is my sport) and so I was quite taken with the commonalities between sports and everyday work life. I really love learning about how our bodies work scientifically, and how we can pull the best out of ourselves. I have already implemented many of the suggestions you made both ‘on the court' and in my business life as well." - Scotiabank Convention Centre

Keynote Presentations

The Corporate Olympian

In high performance business situations, the human mind and body have to work together for ultimate results. Dr. Greg Wells, a scientist who specializes in extreme human physiology, draws the parallels between elite athletes and top executives to help business leaders perform at the highest level, even when under the most extreme circumstances. In this presentation Dr. Greg Wells shows the audience how the science behind world-class athletes can improve the performance and health of people in the business world. Olympic athletes train and compete at the highest levels on a consistent basis over many years. They face the pressures and stresses of setbacks, change, travel, competition, and performance on demand, and still find a way to excel. These are the same challenges that are faced by business people, and the tools and techniques that Olympians use can be applied by anyone at any time to ensure success.

Living a World Class Life

In this high-content and inspiring keynote presentation by Dr. Greg Wells, participants will learn the strategies that elite performers use to lead a world class life. Drawing on his experiences at the Olympic Games and from his own adventures cycling 8000km across Africa, running marathons 600km north of the Arctic circle, and recovering from a broken neck and neurosurgery, Dr. Wells highlights the best-practices that everyone can use to achieve their dreams.

Eat. Move. Sleep.

The world is in a health crisis. Consider these facts. We are in a global “sleeplessness epidemic” that affects close to 20% of the population. More than 30% of the population of the United States are obese and the rates of obesity are lower but increasing in other countries such as Canada, the UK, Australia, India and China. Non-communicable diseases (diseases that are not infectious) such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease are now the leading cause of death in all parts of the world except Africa. The world health crisis is being caused by three main factors: poor sleep, lack of physical activity, and poor nutrition. The answer to the world’s health challenge is therefore incredibly simple. We need to Eat Better, Move Better and Sleep Better. In this keynote presentation Dr. Wells shows audiences how they can improve their health, fitness and performance using simple techniques that can make incredible differences in their lives.
