An evening of inspiration and empowerment will take place in the surrounds of the Athlone Springs Hotel on Friday, October 4.
‘EMPOWER Change your thoughts, change the outcome’ will feature two keynote female speakers as they address and promote the issue of positivity in all aspects of life, be it on a personal or professional basis.
Siobhan Keenan Fitzgerald and Eileen Hopkins will empower and motivate you to move outside of your comfort zone by changing your thoughts. After all, that’s where change begins.
By sharing personal and professional stories that illustrate the power of the mind and our perceptions, the two international award-winning speakers from the fields of health and education, will guide you to a deeper awareness of the power of the thoughts we think, the fact that we have the power to choose and change our thoughts (we are, after all, the thinkers of our thoughts ) and how simple strategies (including mindfulness, exercise, affirmations, visualisation, meditation, grounding and pause ) and moment-to-moment choices can lead to radically different outcomes.
What will you gain?
You will leave empowered with alternative ways of thinking and assured of the power you already have to make changes in your own life. We are stronger than we believe, we have more power than we realise. Be inspired to mind and use your power.
The keynote speakers
Siobhan, as a primary school teacher and principal, Eileen as a nurse and nurse manager have both experienced the usual stresses and pressures of life, family, health and work and have also witnessed the many profound and transformative benefits of choosing and changing our thoughts. This is where true empowerment begins.
