MatchFit
Change is constant in today’s high-pressure work environment, so it’s more important than ever that we strive to work, play and compete at a consistently high level. In other words, we need to be MatchFit.  
Derived from competitive sport, the term MatchFit means performing consistently over time and showing up for the key Performance Moments in our lives. It means we make better decisions, work smarter, slow down the ageing process and have more energy to engage in all parts of life.

MatchFit will:

  • Help you determine how MatchFit you are right now
    By understanding your current score via key metrics on the MatchFit Calculator
  • Show you how to manage your physical and psychological health 
    Support your body and brain to flourish now and in decades to come
  • Provide specific tools to help you work, live and play smarter
    So you can exercise smarter, manage stress, build joy into your life and ultimately reach peak performance

This program is for anyone who is interested in:

  • Improving physical and psychological wellbeing
  • Implementing strategic recover principles to boost productivity, creativity and brain function
  • Tapping the fountain of youth, healthy ageing and achieving enhanced performance
Strive
To strive is to make great effort to achieve a goal; to embrace change and step out of your comfort zone. It is about persevering in the face of rejection and struggling to overcome an obstacle And it’s the ‘struggle’ inherent in striving that creates a sense of pride, building new capabilities and creating new opportunities.
The bad news: Ultimate happiness and fulfillment don’t come easy. The good news: With passion and perseverance, a growth mindset, and a dose of gratitude and perspective, we can get there. The even better news? Andrew has a proven methodology to help you get there - and it can be learned.

Strive will:

  • Show you how our biggest growth comes after our greatest challenges and pain. Life is not always easy. Learn to reframe negative events and see the opportunity to learn and adapt.
  • Help connect you to your purpose. So you can discover what is truly meaningful in your personal and professional life
  • Support leaders and managers to create a resilient culture. So you can thrive in complex and ever-changing situations

For teams and organisations who are:

  • Experiencing turbulent times
  • Under external pressure (reforms, commissions, compliance, takeovers and acquisitions)
  • Undergoing business transformation and disruption.
WorkFit

Welcome to the new world of work. To thrive, we need to be WorkFit. But to become WorkFit, we need to cultivate a different set of skills and unlearn many of the poor productivity habits we inherited before technology ruled our lives.

WorkFit will:

  • Help you understand productivity and why it has nothing to do with hours worked. Learn about chronobiology, why you should avoid multi-tasking, simple strategies to minimise distractions and reduce time wasted on excessive email and meetings
  • Teach you to have laser-focus attention
  • Be ready for Performance Moments (what really matters) and know how to alter physical and psychological state to achieve more flow moments
  • Future-proof your career. Learn what you need to do to stay relevant, employable and ahead of the curve

For teams and organisations who:

  • Are impacted by technology, outsourcing or transformation
  • Feel overwhelmed by change
  • Need to increase focus and productivity
Naturally High
Naturally High is a distillation of the best advice I can provide people to feel better, look better and live better. Hippocrates and Greek philosophers intuitively new that a healthy body is the catalyst to a healthy brain. It has taken scientists thousands of years to catch up and realise that our best chance of thriving involves nurturing a healthy body and brain, not artificial stimulants or external agents.
With adrenalin/dopamine addictions at an all-time high, we need tools to manage the artificial rush that has become a daily expectation. Harness the science of human performance and neuroscience to manage the 37 trillion cells in the human body and alter your mood and psychological state, the natural way.

Naturally High will:

  • Help you understand if you are addicted to short-term bursts of dopamine
  • Learn about modern malaises (addiction to sugar, technology, drugs and alcohol, capital) and how to manage them
  • Teach you how to tap into the fountain of youth
  • Through improving sleep/strategic recovery, nutrition, resistance training to boost hormone levels, and learn the latest advances in science
  • Show you how to feel better and change your internal pharmacy
  • Using nature, laughter and play, physical activity, and connection.

This program is for teams at offsites who:

  • Want to feel energised and inspired 
  • Need a circuit-breaker among other industry-specific topics
  • Are feeling overloaded, fatigued and flat
LeaderFit
Exceptional leadership isn’t about your intelligence, charisma or years of experience. And it is not a title on your business card or on the bottom of your email signature. Exceptional leadership is striking a blend between leadership capacity (managing time, energy and attention) and leadership capability (skills).
LeaderFit focuses on building leadership capacity and how this enhances wellbeing, brain function, decision making, emotional regulation, creativity and innovation.

Leaderfit will:

  • Show you how your body and brain are interconnected. You are not simply a head on top of a body. Physical wellbeing has a dramatic impact on mood regulation, brain function, information processing, decision making, emotional regulation, creativity and innovation.
  • Can improve your attention, information processing and executive functioning
  • Emphasis the need for proper rest and restoration
  • Avoid burnout and increase fulfillment and connectivity in life
  • Provide you with a clear leadership vision
  • Strategies to help you foster the best connection with your team

For leaders and executive teams who:

  • Are committed to enhancing the wellbeing of their leadership team
  • Need to build or sustain a high-performance culture 
  • Want to practice what they preach
The Healthy Entrepreneur

Innovation Bootcamp

What others say:

“Andrew, I just finished meeting with our senior management team. Feedback was hugely and universally positive about your Innovation Bootcamp, so many thanks. From the moment you charged our bodies and brains with the morning Wake Up; to your ability to link innovation to vitality, mindset and organisational culture; through to the group facilitation (using nature) to build accountability; to the follow up resources and copies of your book post-session; you fostered a truly ‘innovative’ experience for the Tandem senior leadership team.

For me, the highlight of the Innovation Bootcamp saw the energy and ideas flow, kind of like real life ‘lightbulb moments’. I would highly recommend Andrew’s Innovation Bootcamp to any business looking for a competitive advantage.”

Michael Davey, General Manager, Tandem.
