How much has stress been a part of your life and is it time to create better businesses with more ease and joy? You don’t think it’s possible, especially not in a stress-based industry of corporate events?

Well, what if creating new possibilities with your money flows, relationships, customers and also your private life was easy once you had the right toolbox to change things? We’d love to introduce you to something called Access Bars.

What is Access Bars? It is a gentle stress-release, quiet-your-mind manual therapy that brings us back into balance and creates ease, peace and a sense of well-being similar to a massage or meditation, except so much more. It is like formatting your hard disk to open up space for something different.

You can use the Bars to create more ease in your life, expand your business, give your employees on really stressful positions a way to relax.

As an event service provider you can also include them as part of incentive and corporate events or add them as a new top-level service at your hotel or spa.

Ana Peskar, a certified Bars and Access Consciousness Facilitator, will give us a short introduction on the Bars and give us some easy-to-use tools to create a life and business we have always dreamed of.

During Conventa you can also visit TIME OUT Event’s Happy SPAce corner and get a FREE 20 minute Bars Taster.

Communication is vital to business and we often do not look at the quality of our conversations or if we are even communicating what is required, when and to whom. 7Steps by Kass Thomas® is an approach that goes beyond verbal and visual communication to reach a level of confidence and presence that creates authentic connection with self, everyone and everything around you.

In business, the 7Steps Training Programme gives employees the steps to communicate flawlessly with each other, suppliers and customers, with greater ease and positive results, even in complicated or conflictual situations.

Gone are the days of “fake it ‘til you make it”.  Today’s fast pace world requires more authenticity, transparency and flexibility in order to keep up with an ever-changing dynamic workplace.
