Be You. Not them. Be here. Not when.  James Perryman 

In the pursuit of happiness and success, it can become normal to pin all of your hopes and dreams to a destination.

A destination where your goals are met, life is balanced and where you have reached “happy”.

A moment where your version of ‘high performance’ is a reality.

Or is it someone else’s destination that you’re trying to reach?

What if your happiness and success could be related to your ‘here and now’, where the destination happens as a result of who you are, what you are and everything you know and can offer?

Are you ready for your moment?

In his enlightening and raw talk “Be you. Not them. Be here. Not when”, James will show you how:

  • Achieving your future goals comes from believing in yourself and the actions you take today.
  • Everything you’ve learnt, experienced and done in the past, is what makes the present you.
  • ‘High performance’ should be a way of living in the present, more than a measure of the future.
