Sweating the Right Sprouts

Success with wellbeing - developing resilience

Are you and your people - your leaders, managers and teams - 'sweating the right sprouts?' 

Are they clear about the goals and outcomes (the cabbages), and focused on sweating the priority activities (the sprouts) to get there?  Dave shares why poor coping strategies can ruin performance and wellbeing. He explains how to regain focus, cope positively and get back on with the business thriving in today's demanding world.  It's all a matter of 'sweating the right sprouts.'

Do they have great personal resilience? Do they appreciate the importance of 'self-care' (nurturing their inner radish)? To develop sustainable success, we need to develop a focus on simple self-care habits.  Dave shares his six areas of self-care to ensure a 'happy inner-radish.'

Dave's entertaining session (also dubbed 'the cabbage keynote'), is a fantastic way to break down resistance and build a brilliant 'up for it' vibe.  Through the use of humour, props and Dave's down-to-earth approach, delegates will leave with motivation and practical tools to implement immediately.  Get in touch to learn more here.

Reclaiming our 'Man Sprouts'

Dealing with adversity, defining purpose, making a dent on the world

It's a matter of public focus and interest these days - men and their mental wellbeing.  And for good reason.  Psychological crisis and suicide amongst men is at critical levels.  Dave, being a bloke, is only too aware of the challenges faced by many men when it comes to opening up about emotional wellbeing, seeking help and taking positive action.

In this session, Dave aims to create a 'positive sprout-look' for men and their mental health and personal growth.  He shares with audiences how to 'kick stress in the sprouts' (deal with emotional and physical adversity positively), 'reclaim our man sprouts' (redefine our persona, purpose and place in the world on our own terms and not those of the stereotypical roles thrust upon us), and 'start sweating those man-sprouts' (get on with growing, living and contributing according to our strengths).

“We pride ourselves on giving our clients a supportive, friendly and professional service. Our annual conferences, in particular, allow us to offer our customers a chance to network, share best practice and learn. We asked Dave Algeo, Stress(ed) Guru, to present his ‘Stress CPR’ showcase to over 100 delegates at our 2015 conference. We recognise that stress and the need to develop a tool-kit of tactics to develop resilience within teams is vital to success. Dave went down a storm! He provided a hugely engaging session, combining great strategies, tips and tactics, with humour, creative delivery styles and a down to earth practical approach which resonated with our audience.

I have no hesitation in recommending Dave for your conference and I know several of our clients are keen to engage Dave to run some bespoke workshops within their own organisations to achieve success and enhance well-being.”

“Dave, just wanted to let you know, I’ve heard back from the conference sponsor... Everyone is still buzzing and talking about your session. Even those who weren’t at the event!”


"Dave presented at the NEPG 2017 to teach postgraduate students how to stress less, a huge task! Nevertheless, Dave managed to have us all engaging with the talk and laughing through, with very helpful tips on looking after our inner radishes!"


Mental Health Awareness Week 2018, is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness and give our people the chance to invest in their own self-care and development.  To that end, we asked Dave Algeo to deliver a number of short sessions in our London and Newcastle Offices on stress and resilience.  Dave’s style is perfect for dealing with a potentially difficult topic.  His use of down to earth tools and strategies, a touch of humour and some memorable metaphors - I won’t forget the cabbages and sprouts for a long time - created a powerful and positive impact for our people.  The feedback from attendees at his session has been fantastic and it was great to see so many people leaving his sessions smiling and talking positively about the subject.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Dave and his hones, down to earth humorous approach to add some real value, positivity and impact to your events.’



“We asked Dave to deliver a session on managing personal resilience at our Mid-Year Department Head’s Conference. The aim of the conference is to reflect on past success and performance and focus on future challenges. Dave’s session was intended to encourage some reflection on managing the demands of the role in a multi-national environment and maintaining well-being. The short session proved to be a fantastic compliment to the main business. Dave’s ‘Stress CPR’ strategy and tools, along with his entertaining and engaging style proved a hit amongst my team and major talking point thereafter. I believe the resources provided during that session are helping my team perform more effectively, without forgetting the need to look after their own health and stress levels.”
