Jill O'BoyleWe are so excited to announce our keynote address, Goodbye Burnout, Hello Life by Jill O'Boyle

Have you ever found yourself in a state where you feel completely burned out, have a lack of focus and feel completely disconnected from the world? Many of us have had a time in our life where we feel this pain and pressure to be in control, taking on one stress after another until we reach a breaking point. This cycle of burnout has a huge effect on our mind and body and can lead to an unhealthy lifestyle if we don’t put a hard stop to it. What if we could effectively learn how to deal with the stress and demands that life throws at us. What if we could banish burnout and start living a life that brings us meaning, purpose, passion and peace. Learn three ways to live your best life.
