What is the best advice to improve our personal and professional performance - to increase our focus, creativity, resilience, and effectiveness? What does the latest science have to say about exercise, diet, sleep, meditation, fasting, smart drugs, and various other biohacking techniques?
== About the speaker ==
This London Futurists event features Nick Powell, who is a performance coach and biohacker. Nick describes himself as follows on his website, https://strongerself.global/nickpowell
>>I have been through my own personal transformation and have made many positive changes to all aspect of my life. Every day I work on achieving personal breakthroughs and improving my mind, body and soul. I am a keen biohacker, which sounds a bit geeky but in essence I maximise my own biology to give me the energy I need to achieve my goals.
I've worked in high pressure corporate environments for the past 20 years delivering major business transformation programmes for global organisations so I know first hand the pressures that entrepreneurs and executives face every day. I've also fought in Judo and Mixed Martial Arts at international level, so understand the commitment and perseverance it takes to compete at the highest level.
Up until recently I was also the Chairman for Oakleaf Enterprise, a Mental Health Charity based in Guildford, Surrey.
I am a certified coach and have trained under Bulletproof 360, one of world's premier peak human performance organisations. I am also a member of Peter Diamandis' Abundance 360 Digital community which focuses on exponential technologies that are going to radically change our futures.<<

As well as getting to grips with sleep, diet, meditation and exercise you will learn about fasting, smart drugs, light therapy, Heart Rate Variability training, toxin exposure, cold therapy, ketogenic diets and time-efficient exercise.
