Max Garcia talks about:

“Leadership, Loyalty, and Maximising Performance”

One of the biggest challenges in business is finding and keeping good people that will consistently add positivity to your culture and pave the way for future leaders in your organisation. However, you don’t have to stay in the whirlwinds of “The Great Resignation” or tolerate poor performance.

This inspiring session pulls from his experience leading thousands of people so that a busy and overwhelmed leader can accomplish their mission, spending minimum time on personnel issues and instead focus on the reason you are in business, to create wealth.

 “Overcome Stress and Accomplish Your Top Priority This Year”

Everyone goes through tough times, because that’s how we learn and grow. However, you don’t have to stay in the whirlwinds of life’s chaos that often pull from every direction leading to frustration, stress and failure in business, career, or personal life.

This inspiring session pulls from his near death experience of not only surviving chaos but thriving above it so that a busy and overwhelmed professional can become resilient and achieve a life full of love, health, and wealth.
