Keynote & Luncheon presentations (may be adapted from 30 to 75 minutes):
"How to Avoid the Lifestyle Disease" As of 2015, the US ranked #43 in life expectancy, behind most wealthy countries and right after the Turks and Caicos Islands. The World Health Organization predicts that by 2030 life expectancy in the US, Mexico, and Croatia will be similar.
In the past 25 years the number of people in the US diagnosed with diabetes has more than tripled. CDC data reveals that after decades of decline, deaths from heart disease has increased in recent years, and the number of cancer deaths continues to climb, as it has for decades. Yet, the fact that the “obesity epidemic” includes our pets suggests that taxing sugary beverages and fast food is not the solution.
In this engaging keynote presentation, Dr Dawkins shares data that suggests, to paraphrase Pogo, the enemy is us and then shares simple, and sometimes unexpected, solutions. It’s not just “life balance” but the "Rhythm of Life."
"How to Do More in a Knowledge Based Business; What the millennials get right, for the wrong reason"More than fifty years of research in sleep, alertness and performance has shown the limits of, and the optimal timing for, human productivity. Largely conducted by the military, this research explores mission execution in sustained operations, in high stress operations and/or in extreme conditions. The results have exposed how our biological rhythm varies throughout the day and its significance in timing our important tasks and our rest.
Knowledge of these biological rhythms are invaluable in managing any business and may contribute to the output, morale, safety and health of the employees.
