Director of EQ Minds

Chelsea is an international speaker and a leading authority on productivity, mindfulness and well-being.

For 12-years Chelsea was known for her extraordinary work ethic and as a high performer she delivered results for a variety of big name organisations. Then a life-challenge happened. In 2015, Chelsea experienced debilitating Post-Natal Depression, which sent her spiraling to the lower depths of mental health. With determination, help and resilience Chelsea bounced back with a new purpose, passion and education. Chelsea is the dynamic, brilliant and inspirational Director of EQ Minds who is on a mission to empower high performance through greater mindfulness.

With everything from media, social media, endless emails and countless meetings, it can feel like fifty thousand things hitting us from every direction. In business today, it becomes even more important than ever to identify what gets results and what is simply a waste of time.

Chris’ presentations give individuals and organisations the tools to make a simple shift in their thinking to gain greater clarity on achieving goals. Chris brings with him an abundance of energy, humour and the ability to quickly connect with the audience.

  Gus Balbontin 

Gus Balbontin - “Customer Focus and Activating Innovation”

Board member of Startup Victoria | Director of Above All Human

The importance of focusing on the customer and not business problems and the dangers of falling in love with your product and service.

Gus wowed our National Conference audience in 2018 with his engaging, thought-provoking and energetic keynote full of great tips and takeaways. Since then much has changed so we are bringing Gus back to take you behind the scenes to understand what companies did right and wrong during recent decades of unparalleled change. The lessons he shares can be applied to all modern businesses and individuals facing the digital revolution and the relentless pace of technology.

He is candid and full of energy. He will make you laugh hard and equally think deeply about the puzzles of running a business irrespective of size. His common sense will disarm you and his practical approach will have you implementing changes as soon as you get back to the office.
