Dr Helena Popovic
Dr Helena doesn’t just deliver compelling presentations, she creates life-changing experiences.
She brings an audience to life with her incisive health messages, razor-sharp insights and dynamic delivery. She shows how great health is not a distant decision - it’s a daily decision. And great health is your great advantage because it’s very rare. Ninety-five percent of employees underperform in the workplace because they’re not in great health. They might not be overtly sick but they’re not as healthy as they could be. This impacts dramatically on their productivity and on the bottom line. If you want to get ahead, get healthy - because everyone else is moving in the opposite direction.
Dr Helena is a medical doctor, leading authority on improving brain function, bestselling author and international speaker. She graduated from the University of Sydney and she believes in slow ageing despite fast living.
Her mission is to educate rather than to medicate and she’s passionate about teaching people how to live longer, stronger, healthier and happier.
Dr Helena is Founder of the Centre for Excellent Health and Ambassador for The Gut Foundation of Australia. She was also a Sydney TEDx Fast Ideas finalist and her book NeuroSlimming won Bronze medal in the international Living Now Awards for its contribution to positive global change.
Chelsea Pottenger is an international speaker and a leading authority on productivity, mindfulness and well-being.

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. She is regularly featured in Marie Claire, Sunrise, UK Daily Mail, Channel 9, ABC News and 2DayFM to name a few.
Anyone that attends her events will laugh, learn, grow and walk away with some lifechanging tools to help them become more successful, more energised and most importantly more able to tackle any challenge life throws at you! She has worked with many global brands such as eBay, Uber, Telstra and Mercedes- Benz, helping professionals recalibrate their brains and create more success in their work and lives.
Known for great audience connection, warm energy and passion, Chelsea has built a tribe of followers including more than 100,000 on Instagram. Using her platform for good, she is a proud ambassador for mental health charities including RUOK? and The Gidget Foundation.
