  • Resiliency Rx: Stress-Proof Your Brain & Body

    Stress is not a psychology problem, it’s a chemistry problem. In order to maximize our intellect and potential, we first have to optimize our chemistry. And we don’t have to be ace chemists to do it! This paradigm-shifting session unveils that it’s not about “managing” or “reducing stress” (which isn’t possible) rather how to be more resilient to the stress we all face. And we can do it 60 seconds at a time.
    • Learn the physiology and neurochemistry of stress as a physical a fun (yes fun!) and easily understandable way.

Research shows that people who lack purpose in life have a higher incidence of depression and anxiety and that they’re less resilient to traumatic events. Insight and deep knowledge of beliefs is also essential for performance in business and life. Many employees are struggling with focus, productivity, and prioritization.

  • Take a Bite Out of Stress

    We all have to eat every day, and our choices are often affecting our chemistry and levels of stress without us knowing it. In turn, our chemistry and levels of stress affect the food choices we make. It’s a cycle of stress many people are on.

    This new and different perspective on nutrition helps participants understand how to eat in a way that optimizes their chemistry, energy, cognitive performance, focus and health...and that it’s easy and convenient to do.

“Jenny was a fantastic speaker that not only has energy, emotion and tons of knowledge behind the topics she covers, but she really makes you think about your health, lifestyle and everyday routine that can be so easily influenced positively or negatively. In a world of change, enhanced technology and never-ending demands and challenges of everyday life, she has a great way of breaking down why you make the choices you do and how to fight your inner Sneaky Pete. Everyone really enjoyed Jenny, including myself, and I have made several changes to my everyday decisions based on hearing her speak!”

“Jenny Evans spoke at our conference and was so impactful and powerful to a large group of high-energy, over-achieving sales executives. It was a tremendous investment in our team by someone they could relate to. Jenny has a special way (I am quite sure because she prepares well) to relate and connect to her audience. That makes the message resonate more! She is inspiring and exciting to be with. She was also very engaging in a follow-up conference call to the team initiated by Jenny to see of the commitment to better choices was sticking. I endorse her 1,000%.”

— Theresa Selvaggio, Regional Vice President, Estée Lauder, Inc.

“Jenny was AMAZING.  Seriously, I’m a tough grader and Jenny couldn’t have been better.  I now have a new bar for what “no dip in energy” looks like over the course of a 5-hour session!  So impressed.  I can’t tell you how many people approached me after the session inspired by what they heard and saw.  Thanks so much!”
