    WORKSHOP: From stress & fatigue > energy & thrive

    Find your unique GPS to fulfillment

    We are living in a fast changing world with innovation and new amazing tools to help us to be better and faster both at work and outside work. There are almost no limits to our possibilities. This rapid progress puts more and more pressure on us to be perfect, available, productive and fast. An alarming percentage of the population is experiencing signs that they are out of sync: fatigue, stress, burnout, fuzzy minds, hormonal imbalances, physical pain and a general feeling of lost motivation and purpose.


    Many of us are neither really happy nor unhappy in our lives and we are

    just trying to survive in our daily lives.

    Isn’t it time to change? To put ourselves in the driver’s seat towards fulfillment?

    Isn’t it time to thrive and feel great?

    Join OWIT and Birgitte Voilquin for an evening of insight and exercises to experience first-hand where you are in your life, what you can do to uplift yourself and how to start the journey towards becoming your best possible version of yourself.

    About the speaker

    Birgitte Voilquin is a founder, speaker, trainer and health coach.

    After an international career in marketing and communications, she created iBoozt in 2014. Today, she helps both companies in their transformation towards a sustainable human centred management and individuals in their transformation towards thriving and infinite fulfilment.

    She is at her happiest when she can recharge others and boost their energy & wellbeing which will not only optimize their own greatness and performance, but also improve the overall company performance.  Learn more about Birgitte and her services here

    More details to follow, stay tuned!

    Feeling festive? Come and celebrate with us the end of the year and reflect on your 2018 achievements!

    This time around the Afterwork will have a Christmas Twist. The objective of this edition is to make you think about your main 2018 professional or personal achievement

    We are playing Secret Santa and exchange small gifts that have a connection with your 2018 professional or personal achievements. Please bring a small wrapped gift together with a short inspirational message. Once the gift is drawn and unwrapped you would be asked to present it to the other participants and share the success story behind it. 

    The rules of the game will be further explained during the evening. The maximum value of the gift should be 10 CHF.

    Come and join us and have fun!

    For example - if you started a new business, bring the product of your business if possible. For the skills and knowledge: let your fantasy work.

    We will welcome you between 18h00 and 20h30, at Warwick Hotel, Rue de Lausanne 14, 1201 Genève.

    Fee
    : none, cost of a drink (please kindly clear your own tab with the bar. OWIT Lake Geneva is not responsible for clearing your bar bill).
