It was stressful, but gee it was fun.
As one of the original directors of Specsavers in Australia, Luke was part of the biggest retail roll-out in Australia’s history. 100 stores in 100 days. His practice was the biggest in the country and set global records that were previously unheard of.
Luke retired for the first time at age 31. After transforming his UK Specsavers practice (increasing turnover 350% in just three years) Luke returned to Australia to relax and put his feet up. It wasn’t long before he realised he missed something….STRESS!

Speaking Topics Include
Becoming stress Teflon
When stressed out, people waste energy worrying about the past and anxious about the future. Becoming Stress Teflon will increase profit and performance by keeping your teams focused, aligned and embracing the challenges in the moment. Embracing stress without it “sticking” is the key to sustained performance and work/life balance.
Leading stress-FREE teams
The great resignation is changing how we look at our teams. People don't leave bad jobs; they leave stressed leaders. Stress flows downhill, and with 65% of departing employees going because of their immediate superior, it's time for leaders to get better at stress.
Burnt out? Let’s get curious about why
Getting curious uncovers options to upgrade our outdated beliefs and systems to make work more efficient. Procrastination, perfectionism, micromanaging, rumination and using chocolate as a stress reliever are all curious habits. This talk will show you a stress-free way to design your systems to ensure performance at work and energy for the things you enjoy.
Work life balance: It’s all about energy
Imagine you had energy for all the important things in your life? That’s balance!
This talk will help your team discover the habits that help and the ones that don’t. You can’t get work life balance without self-awareness and this talk is like a room of mirrors.
School stress RESET
Teenagers have never been more stressed than they are today. This talk will help teachers and teenagers to understand stress, and get in the right state to perform when exams come around. This is the upstream solution to build resilience in tomorrow’s leaders.
