SIY teaches emotional intelligence skills that lead to sustained peak performance, strong collaboration and effective leadership.

  • Learn mindfulness and attention training to increase your self-awareness, which can be applied to a wide variety of situations to respond thoughtfully, rather than react defensively.
  • Develop your empathy to communicate more effectively.
  • Increase your resilience and bounce back from setbacks with a growth-oriented mindset.
  • Create head space to unleash creativity and innovative thinking.
  • Putting all of these traits into practice creates a positive emotional and mental state which is the foundation of strong and inspiring leadership presence.

Over two days in person and four weeks of virtual follow-up, the SIY program is focused on equipping you with a set of practical skills to take back to your workplace and apply immediately.

    He grew up in small country towns and was a surprised and delighted, some years later, to be living and working all over the world as Chief Creative chief for J Walter Thompson. Craig helped global companies like Toyota, HSBC, Proctor& Gamble, Coca Cola, Sony, Vodafone, PayPal, Virgin and Unilever, and win a shed-load of international awards.

    Craig is a passionate believer in creating satisfying and sustainable business success and does his best to practice what he teaches. He is Co-Founder and CMO of digital disrupter Sendle, a technology startup taking on Australia Post by making parcel delivery simple, reliable and affordable for small and medium-sized businesses, Sendle has made the AFR’s list of Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Australia two years in a row, is Australia’s first certified technology B Crop, Australia’s first 100% carbon neutral delivery service, and a Telstra Business Award winner.

In his spare time, he hang’s out with friends and family (wife and three teens), sails, surfs, rides, reads, blogs, meditates and does yoga, and he’s still the fastest Australian to run a marathon at the North Pole.
    Besides the stuff, Craig is Adjunct Professor at the University of Technology Sydney’s Business School, a guest lecturer at UNSW, and a keynote speaker represented exclusively by Saxton.
