In this Skills Series session Federico Presicci will debunk the idea that to perform well you have to be feeling confident, strong and resilient. He will introduce you to a mindfulness approach proven to help overcome mental health issues whilst enhancing performance.

Today he is an MSc graduate of the School of Management, Head of Sales Training & Enablement at GDS group, an accredited personal coach (ACC) and a certified Meditation Teacher. Recently Federico won the Gold Award in the Rising Stars category at the 2022 UK Learning Awards. He uses his expertise in coaching and mindfulness to help professionals elevate their performance whilst minimising the psychological burden of the role and life challenges.
