Jason Sandler is the best Speaker you will find when it comes to getting positive shifts from your staff! He specialises in o Self Improvement o Stress Management o Customer Satisfaction and Service Some great questions you may have that you would like to ask him are: · What is your background that makes you an expert in these subjects? o Jason has been working with people for over 28 years. He has been involved in training staff and empowering people most of his life. o Jason not only has the experience but the qualifications to back this up. He has worked in a large amount of restaurants and hotels both in the kitchen and front of house. Jason has owned 4 successful businesses in the hospitality industry. Since 2002 he has been doing training and helping people and businesses to help them unlock their full potential. He has worked with companies and individuals from all walks of life, ranging from athletes to business owners to cleaning staff. - What qualifications does he have? o Jason Has a Diploma in Counselling and Coaching; he is also a Certified Hypnotherapist and has his NLP Masters. On another aspect he is also a qualified Cordon Bleu Chef. · What is the reason we have so much stress? o In the world we live in today we are expected to always be available 24/7. Ask yourself how many people do you know that don't have mobile phones? We expect to be able to get hold of people easily and effortlessly these days. This is exceptionally tiring and we seem to never allow ourselves to have a "timeout" this causes us to overwork and we begin to confuse our priorities. these are the things that lead to higher levels of stress than our parents had. When a company has me come in to work with the staff it has been proven that the more relaxed and stress free the staff are the better it is for the business. Stress is one of the most common reasons for sick leave within the workforce. · Tell me more about Self Improvement o One of the biggest issues we have is that we often don't have enough faith or confidence in ourselves. I help people to improve the way they see and feel about who they are by looking at 4 different yet linked aspects, namely Self Confidence; Self Esteem; Self Worth and Self Respect. when you are able to increase the way that you feel about all these you will automatically improve every aspect of your life. In business this translates into happier more proactive and productive staff. · So many people offer customer satisfaction workshops, the cliche "customer is king". Whats different about your offering? o Jason has tailored his workshop specifically at the Hotel and Restaurant industry and even more specifically on the front of house. This is an area that he knows very well as he has been in the industry for over 2 decades, having trained many staff in his own establishments. This means that he is bringing many years of hands on experience into the training. As a published author, his 1st book deals exclusively with this subject that he is an authority on. · So Jason has the qualifications and the experience, but can he do a presentation or workshop? o Jason is a highly decorated Toastmaster, having achieved his Distinguished Toastmasters award (the highest award in Toastmasters International). Jason is also an award winning presenter who is a member of the Professional Speakers Association of South Africa. He is registered with the SAQA (SA Qualifications Authority) as a Facilitator; Assessor and Moderator. · Back to what Jason offers; how does what he has to offer work? o Jason offers all three of his subjects on 5 different levels. They are presented as a Keynote; 1/2 day Workshop; 1 day Workshop; a 3 month Mentoring Program and as one on one session. · So which is best? o I would all depend on what the company is looking for. I would begin by having a meeting with the company to find out what they are wanting to achieve and doing a free assessment for them. Once we have analysed this information, I put a proposal together taking what the company are wanting and needing to take them and their staff to the next level. · What would the benefit of all this be? o Even a company that tells you that they are more focused on the service or the product than on making money, must still want and need to turn a profit. It is a fact that the key element of every businesses success is the staff. Every workshop, keynote and mentoring program I run, my goal is to empower the people who are my audience. Happy and content staff will work harder and be more productive. Job satisfaction leads to more motivated staff and more motivated staff leads to a far better bottom line for the business.

I’m sure you’ve seen shows where a superhero or villain controls the mind of someone else or reads another person’s mind and is able to tell what they are thinking and whether or not they are telling the truth, right? Well, here’s a man that many of us might only have thought exists in TV shows, movies or fantasy novels… Tony Wake: The Mindwalker. Not only is he know to be one of the most skilled hypnotists in the world, able to induce hypnosis (put people in trance) with almost anyone in a matter of seconds, but he is also a facial profiler (known as <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physiognomy">physiognomist</a>), an expert in deception detection. This is a man who has literally traveled the world in search of the science and reasoning behind what makes us humans do what we do and to better understand what makes us “tick”. Many say that he is a modern-day ‘Sherlock Holmes’ (of sorts) and if you are lucky (or to some unlucky) enough to be in a conversation with him, you will soon find out that you are in the presence of someone who, for the lack of a better explanation, can read your mind. He, of course, denies this and says that he simply understands how people think and by watching people’s faces and body language and listening to how they speak and communicate, it’s - <em>“easy to get to the core of a person’s thinking processes”</em> - according to Tony. Through his travels abroad, he has been fortunate enough to personally learn from some of the greatest minds alive today including names like: <ul> <li>Simon Sinek</li> <li>Tony Robbins</li> <li>Dr. Joe Dispenza</li> <li>Dr. Richard Bandler</li> <li>Prof. Robert Cialdini</li> <li>Jordan Belfourt (The Wolf of Wall Street)</li> </ul> He is well-know for being an exceptional motivational and keynote speaker, success strategist and trainer of many tools and techniques for powerful, lasting, personal and business results.

Tim Goodenough co-authored the best-selling book “In the Zone with South Africa’s sports heroes,” which added new depth to our understanding of what mental skills, abilities and strategies were a vital part of the success of many of South Africa’s great performers in sport and in life. How understanding high performance in sport willfast-track high performance in business Imagine trying to use a black and white photo to capture the brilliance of a sunset. Book through Conference Speakers From an information point ofview, if the picture is taken correctly everything would be accurate. However the essence of what makes a sunset unique and distinct would be lost. In the black and white sunset photo the information would be correct but has limited value, it is missing some key elements. In many ways this analogy is consistent with how many people; including professional athletes and sports science professionals view high performance. Some have got some of the details and principles, but many are missing the big picture of what is critical and how all the elements fit together. Tim’s next book “Raising Talent: How to fast track potential into performance,” (due out in July 2012), simplifies the talent development process further into a few easy to manage steps, so that the combination of this research and his new techniques and strategies allows any individual or team interested in high performance to be inspired and educated on how to identify and fast-track their next steps to improve their performance. How did Penny Heyns win double Olympic Gold? What made Gary Player the athlete he was? How did Natalie du Toit bounce back from her leg amputation to compete at the Beijing Olympics? What are the key elements of those and other world class performances and how do you replicate those key elements? How does understanding the true nature of talent and talent development help us unlock talent in ourselves and the people around us? All these questions and more are answered by one of the new emerging thought leaders in this niche field. Tim Goodenough is one of approximately a dozen coaches around the world to hold the advanced Professional Certified Meta-Coach (PCMC) qualification.

From Para to Dakar
Joey Evans has always been a keen sportsman and up for an adventure. He’s run several marathons and ultra-marathons, hiked the Fish River Canyon in Namibia, finished the Roof of Africa Enduro in Lesotho, raced in the Botswana Desert 1000 and finished the 6000km Africa Eco Race through the Sahara Desert. He’s ridden and raced his dirt bike throughout South Africa as well as 20 other countries. Joey has been married to his soulmate Meredith for over 22 years and they are the proud parents of four teenage daughters, an extreme adventure in itself! From an early age, Joey had one dream that stood out above the others. A dream to race his motorbike in the Dakar Rally. A race widely known as the toughest, longest and most dangerous off-road race in the world, a race that has claimed the lives of over 70 people during its 42 year history. But his dream, along with the rest of his life, was completely shattered in 2007, when during a local race in South Africa he was hit by another biker and amongst other serious injuries he broke his back, crushing his spinal cord leaving him completely paralyzed from just below his chest. The prognosis was he would never walk or feel his legs again. Joey suddenly facing a daily struggle of keeping it together both physically and mentally made a decision, that he would not only still live a full life, but he would still chase his dream of racing the Dakar Rally. The finish line of that race became the symbol of him beating his injury. It would take him 10 years, with numerous challenges, successes and lessons learnt along the way, until on the 2nd of January 2017, Joey stood as a competitor on the start of the 13 day, 9000km Dakar Rally in Asunción, Paraguay. Qualifying to race the Dakar Rally was an incredible achievement in itself but the unimaginable events that he endured through those 9000km across South America tested him far beyond what even he could have imagined. The unforeseen and catastrophic event of his bike being crushed by a two ton rally car on the second last day, set the stage for an epic final chapter, you simply couldn’t make up. <strong>Joey shares a message of determination in the face of insurmountable odds. A master storyteller, weaving heartfelt emotion, humour and gripping adventure, his presentation will leave you with a new perspective on your own challenges and the renewed drive to chase your own goals and dreams.</strong> <em>Since racing the Dakar Rally, Joey has written the book on his inspirational journey titled “From Para to Dakar.” Published in November 2017, it has become a National Bestseller and is available in print, eBook and audio. He was awarded “National Off Track Rider Of The Year” by the South African Guild of Motoring Journalists and later honoured by Motorsport South Africa with the “Special Award for Outstanding Contribution to South African Motorsport.” His journey has been a top featured story on Carte Blanche, SuperSport and widespread international publications.</em>
