REBECCA SWANSON

Rebecca Swanson draws on her wide experience – in the corporate world, as a coach, and as a human being – to chair and facilitate our GG Boards. She is a dedicated professional in the fields of emotional wellbeing, human potential, and personal mastery. As a successful corporate executive, she experienced physical and mental breakdown from adrenal exhaustion, which drove her to change her life.

 

A process of awakening and self-rediscovery led to a degree in psychology, then training certifications in NLP, many alternative therapies and ancient wisdom studies. In her workshops and private sessions, Rebecca combines neuroscience and ancient wisdom with lessons from her personal journey to inspire, educate and motivate business leaders. Rebecca inspires the courage required to go deep and have real conversations with yourself, your children and families, so you can step into the spotlight of your lives without feeling guilty or selfish. Rebecca is committed to ensuring that all business owners achieve clarity and emotional wellbeing through balance of their inner and outer lives."

AMANDA CAMPBELL 

Hi, my name is Amanda, the founder of Bend Like Bamboo, a program designed to maximise resilience and health. As a Sports Kinesiologist and resilience trainer, I use flexibility to boost resilience. With a flexible mindset we can master change and reimagine what can be possible in our mind, body and life. Overcoming a paralysis at age 29 from MS, I discovered that a flexible mindset impacts everything that matters: our body’s ability to repair, how happy and resilient we are and how connected we feel.
