Being at Your Best When It Matters Most
Evolution has seen to it that we’re “wired” to make it through the day… our Number 1 Priority 10,000 years ago! Sadly, our ability to focus is the major casualty – cognitive psychology and neuroscience tell us that we’re “wired” to not focus and, worse, “wired” for stress. So, in the 21st century, our minds are often working against us, when we need them most.
Willie Horton will explore and explain “the psychology of success” – what modern science tells us about how we can manage our minds so that they work for us, when it matters most… we’ll be talking about purposeful focus!

Why Simple is Smart
Brands that embrace the power of simplicity tend to be the winners, breaking through to capture and maintain consumers’ attention and loyalty. Simplicity, is possibly the most valuable strategy any brand serious about success can deploy. When properly applied, it serves a purpose: it helps us make choices, saves time, minimises debate and ultimately drives the bottom line.
Simple isn’t easy but it’s worth it.
