Stress touches EVERYONE… they just don’t speak about it.

A Mental Health Foundation study in 2018 revealed that:

74% of people have felt so stressed they have been overwhelmed and unable to cope“.

  • 46% reported that they ate too much or ate unhealthily due to stress
  • 29% reported that they started drinking or increased their drinking

And a Labour Force Survey (LFS) In 2020/21 revealed that “stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 50% of all work-related ill health cases“.

A Few Words From Matt…

Matt Adams

(Note: If you’ve already read my Bio profile here on my website, you can skip down to the section titled ‘Stress, Burnout And Anxiety ‘Toolbelt’)

My journey with stress started in 2002 at age 24 while I was managing two real estate offices.

From hiring new sales people, running sales meetings, getting listings of new apartment projects, mentoring new salespeople, selling properties and managing 14 salespeople, I started noticing physical changes such as face pimples, lowered libido and general lethargy.

I ignored the signs for another 3 months until one day, I crashed.

I resigned on the spot. I was burnt out. I knew I just had to stop.

I then resigned from my next job within 6 months due to severe anxiety feelings telling me to ‘get out’.

However, the real stress/anxiety event that changed my life came in 2006.

I interviewed for a job (a well-paying, high-pressure job) on a Monday.

On the Thursday at 11am, I was driving my car along a busy road and took a phone call from a friend.

About 5 seconds later I had a massive pounding in my chest.

I started gasping for breath while pushing myself back and up in my seat to somehow get it to stop.

I thought I was having a heart attack.

It lasted for maybe 8-10 seconds.

When it was over I had a layer of perspiration over any exposed skin and the tip of my tongue was numb.

What the hell was that?“, I thought.

I headed straight to the doctor and they connected me up to an ECG machine.


No signs of anything, all was normal.


But things were far from normal from that day onward.

And at 2pm that same day I was offered the job which I initially accepted, and 3 days later on the Sunday, I resigned so that I didn’t have to start work on the Monday.

4 Months Of Hell

The next 4 months were the hardest months of my life.

For the 4 months following what appeared to be a panic attack, I was experiencing up to 100 heart palpitations per day along with lightening shock feelings in my heart.

I literally felt like I could have died at any second (thousands of times).

One night I didn’t sleep at all, not even for a minute because I was having the feelings and thought “If I go to sleep, I won’t wake up“.

Two nights later, after taking two sleeping tablets to get to sleep, I woke up the next morning and vowed never to take sleeping tablets ever again.

And I’VE NEVER been to one doctor or taken one pharmaceutical drug to relieve or treat stress, burnout or anxiety.

“The Moment”

It wasn’t until December 2006, four months after the panic attack that I stumbled upon a technique in a personal development book that when I implemented it, changed my life.

In the 4 months prior to using the technique I could only work an average of 4 days per week, was experiencing dozens of heart palpitations along with lightening shock feelings in my heart.

After implementing the technique I had only 1 day off work over the next 6 months, reduced the heart palpitations to almost zero and completely eliminated the lightening shock feelings in my heart.

Work Stress And Anxiety ‘Toolbelt’

Since the work stress at age 24 and the panic attack at age 27, my journey with stress and anxiety has gone through peaks and troughs which has forced me to find or create multiple techniques for dealing with stress and anxiety.

This ‘toolbelt’ of strategies and techniques to manage stress and work anxiety has given me a level of mental and emotional freedom that I couldn’t have even imagined back in 2002 when I first started experiencing stress symptoms.

I can empathize with anyone suffering from work stress, burnout or work anxiety. I’ve been there, thousands of times over the past 18 years.

The difference is, I now have tools and techniques to call upon to change the way I feel in any given moment.

I can be feeling intense stress or anxiety in one moment, and less than 60 seconds later I’m able to replace those feelings with feelings of peace.

It’s an amazing sense of freedom to have and I’m now sharing my knowledge and skills with others so that they can create shifts in their mind, body and emotions just as quickly.

I look forward to discussing the opportunity to speak at your next conference or event.

Live Or Virtual Conference Themes, Topics And Ideas To Make Your Next Event a Success

Amazing events start with great conference themes that truly ‘speak’ to your audience (pun intended)… and what more relevant topic can you get than health.

Health is the single most important area of our life, yet it’s the least understood and the one we have the least amount of knowledge in as individuals.

Strange right?

This is why when we’re unwell, we just run to the doctor… because we simply don’t have the knowledge of what to do, whether it’s healing, management or more importantly, prevention.

For virtual event themes in 2023, what better gift can you give your audience than increased knowledge on how to prevent, manage or recover from a health problem; mental, physical or emotional.

Whether you’re organizing a business conference, leadership conference or a large convention, there’s not one person in the workforce today that can’t benefit from increased knowledge in the areas of health, stress management and mind-body well-being.

Transformation starts with education.

So for your next online conference or in-person event, considering a health-related topic as your conference theme can help transform the lives of your valued customers and quite literally, even save lives.

Here are some conference theme ideas involving health and well-being:

  • Healthy Habits, Healthy Life (Looking after your number one asset)
  • Mind-Management 101 (What they didn’t teach us at school)
  • Developing a Health-First Mindset (Prioritizing your prized-possession)
  • Feeling Good at Work (Even if you hate your job)
  • Thinking Clearly About Brain Health (Boost your brain brawn)
  • Fitness Over Fatness (Self-motivation and taking control through exercise)
  • Going On Strike Over Stress (Eliminating workplace stress for healthier employees)
  • Beating Burnout Before It Beats You (Derailing the burnout train, now)
  • Mindset as a Skillset (How can you actually change to the person you want to be?)
  • Technology and Health (Do they really go together?)
  • Mental Health Madness (What we’re doing wrong)
  • Self-Aware for Self-Care (How mental-selfies can change your life)
  • Resilience Resentment (What’s really preventing us from being stronger?)
  • Anxious About Anxiety (There’s only one way out)
  • Wellness Wealth (What does it really take to put your well-being first?)

Use these virtual event theme ideas to brainstorm further to come up with the perfect combination for your conference and audience to wow them and get them even more excited about next year’s event.

Whether you’re seeking one key speaker or several breakout session speakers, chat to Matt about your requirements.
