Were you part of The Best You Expo?

 

Just 18 months ago, The Best You’s team, led by CIO Bernardo Moya, envisaged its first festival of personal development. With a vision to bring the greatest minds in personal development together with fantastic coaches, practitioners and companies in the self-improvement industry, the team worked hard to create a show which would inspire, teach and reward those looking for solutions.

The resulting event, held at London’s ExCeL on 27-28 February was a golden moment in the UK’s personal development industry.

He continued to explain that within a team he will focus on each person and consider if they have what it takes to be a champion. At the outset is talent, but this is the starting point, he explained:

More than 3,200 joined the event, with a further 1,500 registering to receive digital content broadcast live from ExCeL.

Many signed up to hear keynote speakers including the personal development industry’s biggest names, Barbara De Angelis, Robert Holden and Michael Neill. Others came to hear about sporting excellence from Sir Clive Woodward, nutritional advice from Jason Vale, and financial wisdom from Gill Fielding.

Woodward recalled how when he started working with the England team, he tapped into his early years after university, working in IT at Xerox. Upon his appointment he gave all of the England team laptops, prompting headlines asking, ‘Why is he not giving them more raw meat?’

“My response,” said Woodward, “was and still is, whoever wins in IT, wins. By giving a team of burly, fit rugby players laptops I could work out who is a sponge, and who is a rock.”

Woodward highlighted how he led the introduction of a revolutionary data capture tool, which allowed him to see players from different perspectives on the field of play.

The Great Minds Seminar Room was the place of life-changing moments with amazing advice and insights shared.

Alongside, a series of workshops ran non-stop for 15 hours with each speaker attracting a capacity audience of almost 100 delegates. Insights and advice were shared by speakers across a wide range of subjects enabling delegates to take away ‘golden gems’ to apply to their own lives.

A fantastic range of exhibitors showcased their services and products at the Expo, including coaching for business success, divorce advice and addiction support.

With a live camera crew and reporters, The Best You’s social media team tracked the weekend, with more than 1,500 posts from the event sent every 1.3 minutes.

Throughout this special issue of The Best You, we report on the Expo, the speakers who helped to change lives over the weekend, the exhibitors who supported the event, and the realisation of Bernardo Moya’s vision to bring The Best You to life.

Our thanks goes to all who were involved, and we look forward to welcoming you back to The Best You Expo 2017!

At The Best You Expo, Juice Master Jason Vale inspired the audience to take his juice challenge

 

The stage is set, the music is pumping and, as he is announced to the podium, Jason Vale leaps onto the stage. Dressed in shorts and a shirt, despite it only being February and chilly outside, he is tanned, looking fit and super toned, as you might imagine of the man who has revolutionised his own and the lives of thousands of others through juicing.

Vale’s story is one of transformation. Looking at him today, as he revs up the crowd eagerly anticipating his arrival, it’s hard to imagine him as he once was – overweight, a chain smoker and heavy drinker suffering with psoriasis, eczema and hay fever. After being inspired by juicing pioneer Norman Walker, Vale embarked upon his own journey and lost four stone, quit smoking and drinking by changing his mindset to his addictions.

In 2001, he published his first book, Juice Master and began to appear on TV shows such as The Fit Farm, This Morning and The Wright Stuff. Since then the effervescent Vale’s career has sky rocketed with books, CDs, DVDs, apps, and today he runs seminars, owns juice bars and retreats in Portugal and Turkey. Juicing has been good to Vale.

Today though, his sole focus is on the audience in front of him. He’s already rewarded them with several of his books, a copy of his Super Juice Me! 28-day juice plan DVD, and a tasty juice bar, all part of his growing product portfolio. Part of Vale’s appeal is his openness and self-deprecating nature – it’s his, “I can do it, you can do it too,” attitude that involves the crowd from the outset.

“I left school at 15 with no education, and I can’t believe I’ve even written a book,” laughs Vale. “I grew up on a North Peckham estate, I was overweight, I had psoriasis, I had a big smoking and drinking habit. It’s a far cry from who I am today. I honestly believe that unless you’re physically and mentally sharp, everything else will fail.”

Behind Vale’s upbeat, high tempo presentation, there is a deadly serious message about the UK’s spiraling battle with obesity. Vale shifts the audience’s attention to a blender at the side of the stage. Alongside is a feast of junk food – from long life muffins, which Vale describes as “sponges”, to high sugar chocolate bars and cans of Diet Coke, which Vale tells the audience is, “highly addictive”.

Very visually, he starts to combine these, an experiment he says he often does when he speaks at schools. The resulting sludge of the mixture looks as toxic as it undoubtedly is for our systems, and it allows Vale to illustrate how poor nutrition affects our bodies.

“It takes more energy to digest bad food,” Vale says. “We are frequently overfed and undernourished, and the symptoms of a toxic diet are very evident in a body that is in distress.

“The vast majority of diseases are lifestyle related, and in Super Juice Me! we took eight people with eight diseases and showed how a juice-based diet can markedly shift these.

The solution is to turn to a low human intervention – or low HI – diet.” Yet while food provides the panacea, the secret to success lies in the way that we think about it.

“The challenge is addiction,” says Vale, “and we need to change our approach to our diet mentally. All of my books are designed to help people make the change, to remove the desire for what we are told we should want.”

Although he’s enraptured the audience at The Best You Expo, Vale’s time is up, and so he urges them to enjoy his books and bars, and to join his juice revolution. With that he’s off to sign autographs and inspire a legion more followers.

Speaking at The Best You Expo, Rugby World Cup-winning head coach Sir Clive Woodward explained what it takes to be the best

 

Nature or nurture? It’s the perennial question surrounding success, and so when Sir Clive Woodward presented ‘DNA of a champion’ at The Best You Expo’s Great Minds Seminar, he tapped into the heart of what it takes to be the best.

Having led the England rugby team for eight years as head coach, he has seen time and again what it takes to make a champion, and kicked off his session by saying that in his mind, “Great teams are made of great individuals.”

He continued to explain that within a team he will focus on each person and consider if they have what it takes to be a champion. At the outset is talent, but this is the starting point, he explained:

“It’s not enough and you’re never going to win on talent alone. Your mindset has got to be that other people have talent and you can’t make other people what they are not.”

Beyond raw skill, a champion has the right mindset, explained Woodward. “Teachability and a willingness to learn is key to becoming a champion,” he said. “Students who have a sponge approach to learning and a passion for their subject will always outdo rocks who have no willingness to learn. One of the questions I would ask is, ‘What do you individually do to teach yourself?’”

Woodward recalled how when he started working with the England team, he tapped into his early years after university, working in IT at Xerox. Upon his appointment he gave all of the England team laptops, prompting headlines asking, ‘Why is he not giving them more raw meat?’

“My response,” said Woodward, “was and still is, whoever wins in IT, wins. By giving a team of burly, fit rugby players laptops I could work out who is a sponge, and who is a rock.”

Woodward highlighted how he led the introduction of a revolutionary data capture tool, which allowed him to see players from different perspectives on the field of play.

“There was no hiding,” he said. “When you see your and other teams as dots and data, all the mystique of being a champion goes away – suddenly great teams become beatable.

“Having equipped the players with IT skills they were able to take their own data away and analyse their performance. Their knowledge started to increase and we studied what they do. Ordinarily this stuff is left to the analysts of the game but the IT enabled them to take an interest. It’s fascinating that you can leverage talent if you take knowledge to new levels.”

Woodward explained the stages of development that he uses to coach success – firstly to capture the information or knowledge, then to imagine the ‘winning moves’ required to succeed, before moving on to practise and perfect these.

“Imagine we are writing a book together,” said Woodward. “First you need a name and a design, plus the chapters by which you break down your business. This is the process to capture information and knowledge and stick ‘what we do’ into each chapter.

“Then we connect and share this with others, turning what we do into knowledge – the ‘why’. This is followed by practise, finding and executing practices that create winning moves – the ‘how’ – before moving onto ‘perfect’ which allows us to measure and benchmark how well we perform.”

Woodward explained how he would often role play with the England team, using a scoreboard, clock and wipe board to rehearse scenarios time and again to prepare the players for every possibility.

“Thinking about it ahead, in every aspect of life, means that when it happens in the real world there is a high chance you will act properly. “It’s an education system that means you can make the correct decision if you’ve thought it through – I call it TCUP, thinking correctly under pressure, and it’s an ability that all champions have. In fact, winners perform at their best when the pressure is at its greatest.”

Leaving an inspired audience at The Best You Expo, Woodward enabled those watching to take his learning at the top of national sport, and see the potential for their own development by using his approach and techniques. A champion session from a leader of champions.
