“We were inspired by Dave’s talk at our AIA peak performance Summit in his key note speech. His topic was on Move well and think well; his topic opened the eyes of the audience towards the integrated view that your body and mind are a 100% connected. You don’t need to be an athlete to understand Dave’s material; he breaks it down and makes it digestible to any human. If you want peak performance out of your conference attendees; I would recommend Dave as a keynote speaker.”

Dave gets his audience to understand that stress is all around us and that we should embrace it and change our language when dealing with stress.
The highlight for me was watching 200 farmers meditating through breathwork led by Dave. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a performance edge – at work or in your personal life.”
“Amazing keynote address by Dave Wood at NZ Events AssociationEventing the Future conference today. It was a ‘refresher’ for me as I was lucky (and so privileged) to be able to spend three days with Dave a while back learning about performance and stress mitigation.

If you can get to one of his workshops don’t hesitate – it will be life enhancing!”
