Looking After Number One

Businesses leaders, owners and managers today, just like sports players, need to be at the top of their game to deliver sustained performance. So what better place for Optima-life’s CEO Simon Shepard to deliver a talk on ‘Maximising Performance – It starts with you’, than at the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce Luncheon, with 70 local business directors.

Speaker invitations are coming thick and fast these days for the Optima-life team but Simon who lives in Hertfordshire was delighted to accept this particular invite. The luncheon was part of the Dacorum Business Showcase 2013, held at Shendish Manor, West Hertfordshire and the audience comprised of business owners from new start ups to leaders of mature, established companies.

Simon said:‘Whether it’s the pressures of running a multi million pound company or stepping out on the first rungs of entrepreneurial life, one very valuable entity often gets overlooked. If you are setting the pace for developing the business, looking after yourself, finding time away from work to develop a healthy lifestyle, has to be part of the business plan.’
