Conference MC & Keynote Speaker

Dr Helena Popovic
Since receiving her medical degree from the University of Sydney in 1995, Dr Helena Popovic has been paving the way for a new paradigm in peak health and peak performance. 

A specialist in lifestyle-based diseases (which account for over 80% of all cases presenting to GPs in Australia), Helena shows both men and women how to achieve excellence in every area of their life - through education, not medication. Her work has taken her across the globe from Australia, New Zealand and North America to Germany, Japan and India.

Helena is the author of In Search of My Father: Dementia is No Match for a Daughter's Determination, the founder of Mission SlimPossible: Licence to Lose - a weight loss program which teaches the skills of successful slimming for life, and was also a vasectomist.

Helena has done extensive research on the brain, mind and motivation and is recognised as one of Australia's leading experts on neuroplasticity (how we can change our own brain) and mind mastery (how we can master our life by mastering our mind).

Helena has a talent for bringing science to life. She applies the latest research to daily life, health and business and shows how we can achieve extraordinary results.

Throughout her years in medical practice she has lectured students, nurses and fellow doctors, and now delivers keynotes, seminars and workshops to people in all professions and all walks of life. She is vibrant, invigorating and highly entertaining.

It is Helena's unique combination of scientific rigour, commonsense practicality and playful personality that make her a captivating, inspiring and unforgettable speaker.

There are many speakers who make an audience feel great. There are other speakers who produce measurable results. With Helena you get both: people feeling fabulous and an increase in the bottom line.
