Live Workshops

Get practical. Access a suite of workshops designed to accelerate your professional (and personal) growth by experts in the field.

Workshops will be interactive in nature and developmental by design. Get ready to explore new ideas, integrate new learnings within the workshop, and interact with other active professionals.

Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the format of the conference? 

This is an online conference, but the conference team and members of the Flow Centre team (coaches and ambassadors) will gather at a hub in England to deliver the conference creating a fantastic vibe throughout the two-day event. We also aim to use the latest conferencing software to make it as interactive as possible.

What is flow? 

Flow is the scientific term for optimal functioning. An optimal experience that accounts for one of life's most richest experiences. The flow state is simply described as an intrinsically rewarding state of absorption in which our control feels more effortless and our actions fluid. Flow has long been sought as the holy grail of optimal performance by athletes and elite performers, though more recently been heavily linked as a natural buffer to stress and a central aspect of living a fulfilled life.

In this conference we cover flow from all angles but also many associated practices and concepts that help lead us into flow. From gratitude to mindfulness, neurobiology to experiential intelligence, STRESS LESS, BE MORE, takes a look at what is working in the field to help live a high performing and deeply fulfilling life.

What is included in the FREE limited access package?

The FREE package includes access to the live ‘first time’ streaming of the recorded keynote presentations. It will also include a free mini course on 'Understanding Flow' to whet your appetite to find out more so that you can experience flow regularly in your life and derive its many benefits.  

What is included in the Unlimited Access package?

The Unlimited Access package gives you everything from the free package plus access to the live workshops, panel discussions, and Q&A sessions following the live streaming of the recorded keynote presentations. In addition, you will get 4 months access to the library of recordings together with exclusive community access and the opportunity to meet the speakers (virtually) and ask questions. Each workshop alone is valued more than $99, so this package offers great value for money.
