Jason Jelicich is CEO and founder of an organisation devoted to creating more connected people and healthier working cultures.
For the past 20 years, Jason has been teaching, training and guiding others from all walks of life. He has developed literally hundreds of educational programs for employees and their leadership teams, as well as working with troubled teenagers on the side.
But on a business trip to Miami in 2008, Jason’s life was turned upside down when he received the news that his son had been diagnosed with cancer. His perspective on life and work shifted irrevocably, and as a result, a new paradigm for dealing with the world emerged.
He now shares his inspiring message on how to stay in the ‘Present’ during challenging times – without having to meditate on a mountaintop somewhere! His book, ‘The Present – A Handbook for the Everyday Guru’, is due for release in late 2013.
In his new keynote The Power of the Present Moment, Jason shows how to harness your own personal power to feel better about yourself and your life, better manage stress, keep a clear head, make better decisions and promote a better connection with others.
His presentations are designed as an experience not just a speech. His take home messages are practical and easily able to be employed into one's work and life and contains tangible take-outs, leading to better workplace connection and productivity.
While this topic seems to connect with everyone who comes into contact with it - it has particular relevance to Gen Y audiences who have grown up with so many distractions and lack the discipline of focus.
