About the Speaker:

Dr Adam Fraser

Dr Adam Fraser is a peak performance researcher who helps people strive to achieve better performance in everything they do. In his time, he has worked with elite athletes and sporting teams, special forces soldiers and business leaders. 

What is unique about his research is that it focuses on how do people go beyond their potential without the collateral damage that normally comes with elite performance. 

Often success comes at a price in the following areas: 

  • Broken personal relationships 
  • Poor physical and mental wellbeing. 
  • Strained relationships with colleagues. 
  • Lack of fulfilment and connection to meaning and purpose.
