Ani WIlson



Conference Speaker


Business Speaker

 Having spent 20 years in highly stressful management positions all over the globe, Ani was diagnosed with Stress induced stage three cancer for the 2nd time in her career.  

Ani was a manager who was told to slow down - to “chill out”.

But being a Type A overachiever, Ani knew that slowing down would go against her very nature and was determined in finding a more fitting answer.  Qualifying as a Stress Mastery Coach, Executive Life Coach and Meditation teacher, Ani quickly realised that mindfulness was not enough.  

Leveraging her neuroscience background, Ani reignited her passion for the human brain and began her own research only to find that ‘slowing down’ was actually detrimental to the circuitry within a high performers brain.

Ani now travels the globe mentoring and speaking to audiences about the merits of their own high performing personalities, teaching business owners and managers how to change their stress instantly, by using Brain Hacking techniques that physically rewire the brain to promote exponential mental performance.  

Ani has a book coming out in September (Unbreakable Leadership), and provides Elite Coaching to overachievers on the brink of burnout.  

Ani’s speeches are filled with fast-paced, light-hearted facts, timely research and thought provoking stories.  When you book Ani, be prepared for laughter, tears and engaging interaction that will have your audiences raving well after your event.
