The Quantified Self: Using data & technology to accelerate sustainable performance

Optimize health and performance in a sustainable way:

We are all becoming data donors. Who is nowadays not in one way or another sharing their personal data with external parties, in order to improve a product they own or a service they are using? Also in the field of health & wellbeing, more and more consumers are using wearables to get insights into one or more biomarkers.

In this keynote, Lieven will share which metrics are used to quantify health and wellbeing, and how companies start using biometrical data of employees to optimize the physical, mental and emotional health of their workforce.

Lieven also shares the one health metric that rules them all – Heart Rate Variability (HRV) – and why everyone should start measuring it.

Following a process called biohacking, everyone will be able to optimize their health and performance in a sustainable way.

Reframe your routines

Break the habit of being yourself:

“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routines.”

Our unconscious habits influence 95% of what we do on a daily basis. Change in every aspect of our life can therefore be found in how we manage to change our habits.

Lieven will take you on a journey through the mind and explore why we develop habits in the first place, how they make life more efficient but also how they can set us up for failure or success.

Based on his own personal stories and scientific literature, Lieven will bring a framework for behavioral change, give you practical tools on how to change your bad habits and work towards the best version of yourselves.

Breathe less, fear less

Overcoming fear and anxiety…with one single breath:

If there is one emotion which holds us back from reaching our full potential, then it is fear. There are many fears we can identify…the fear to fail, the fear to lose, the fear to be rejected, the fear of becoming ill,…but if you look to fear from a physiological point of view, there are only a couple of reactions we have.

In this keynote, Lieven will dive deeper in one of the most primal survival mechanisms of our body and how with one simple tool we can overcome our fears….our breath.

Consciously regulating our breathing patterns can help us to relax, to activate our bodies, to overcome our fears and even to heal ourselves.

An experience driven exploration of our breath, filled with science and insights.

Stronger by stress

Learn how stress can help us to become more resilient in work and life:

During this keynote, Lieven will explore, from his own personal story, topics such as stress and how stress can help us in becoming healthier and happier.

From evolutionary point of view, short periods of stress has helped the homo sapiens to survive and thrive. Stress can even help us to become stronger on a physical, mental and emotional level. Participants will be able to experience during the keynote how they can influence their own stress levels.

Using hands on tips & tricks, Lieven will give easy applicable tools which can be used on a daily basis to coop with stress in a sustainable way and even use it to your own advantage.
