Christine bridges the gap between the heart, fueled by faith & logic, fueled by practicality - to help people receive more than they could ever imagine and claim the rich life they were created for.

As a mother of 6, ages 6-20, through a blended family, a wife, high level athlete, multiple business owner and entrepreneur since her 20’s, she is intimately familiar with the overwhelm and burnout that can come when building a ‘dream’ life, as well as what’s possible on the other side.

Through years of trials, burning things down and rebuilding from the ashes of her past, she has ditched the rules of this world, following the calling on her heart to cultivate a life of total alignment - where there is more than enough time for her most meaningful work, extraordinary relationships, a legacy of impact - and plenty of rest! Her vision is to create a community of Kingdom Minded Men and Women who are rising together as powerful co-creators rather than competitors - and are redefining the way we lead at work, in relationships, and every arena of life!

Brian O'Neill

Brian O’Neill is a Chicago-based real estate investor, author, podcast host, and coach who turned his life around from being stuck in a high-earning yet unfulfilling corporate sales job. For 25 years, Brian felt trapped, living a lifestyle that demanded he stay in his job, despite it costing him precious moments with his young son and leaving him filled with regret. Flying over 100,000 miles a year, he was missing life at home, and it was eating him up inside.

The turning point came when his son expressed how much he missed him. This was the wake-up call Brian needed to break free from what he calls the 'W2 prison' he had built for himself. He realized that the real barriers holding him back were all in his head.

Now, Brian is living proof that it's possible to break free and live life on your terms. He's made it his mission to help others who feel stuck in their jobs, believing that a shift in mindset is all it takes to change your life. He speaks from experience when he says you're never too trapped to make a change. Brian's message is clear and simple: believe in yourself, change how you think, and you can change your life. Brian firmly believes it's never too late to chase the life you’ve always wanted.

  • You call attention to the fact that while cognitive and emotional biases are important to understand when selecting leaders, it’s a leadership lens that is overlooked in most organizations. Can you explain more about the importance of this lens and why it matters?

Joanna Lindenbaum is an expert in transformation who helps coaches and healers take their coaching skills to the next level. She believes that the coaching, healing, consulting & transformational industries have the power to change the world in extraordinary ways.

  • Tell me about the Resistance Archetypes and how they impact clients?
  • How do you know when someone is in Resistance, isn't it the same as being in Fear?
  • What is the best way to help someone in Resistance?
  • What if you can’t identify an Archetype, is something else going on?
  • Can you tell me about a time when you were in Resistance, and how you worked your way through it?

Joanna Lindenbaum

Joanna believes that as these industries have grown, practitioners have focused more on marketing and less on mastering their craft to deliver the highest quality sessions. She’s on a mission to change that.

Joanna uses her 20 years of experience with human behavior, embodiment practices, and Archetype and Shadow to inform her Sacred Depths Practitioner Certification, where students gain a level of skill, confidence and depth when it comes to fears, blocks, self-sabotage and procrastination that the majority of their peers don’t have.

Susannah Cole started in property because she had a problem to solve. As a head of household with two little children, her month and money were only just meeting (and sometimes there was a gap) and she wanted more time with her family rather than having to swap her time for money at work.

  • Do you have any tips for entrepreneurs on achieving work-life harmony?

Susannah Cole

Susannah Cole started in property because she had a problem to solve. As a head of household with two little children, her month and money were only just meeting (and sometimes there was a gap) and she wanted more time with her family rather than having to swap her time for money at work. She could see the property could deliver that, so she set to!

She started The Good Property Company in 2011, as a kitchen table start-up. At first, the goal was to source deals for investors, work on JV flips, and then invest in property for herself and her family, to reach Financial Freedom and get to her personal goal which was more time with her family and loved ones, and the relatively passive money coming in, to not worry about money!

In the first four 1/2 years of being full-time in property, The Good Property Company sourced more than 200+ properties, all in Bristol, with a value of over £45 million, at a purchase price of £30 million (before refurb).

She was asked by Wendy, who became her first student, to share her simple step-by-step, and since then she has taught thousands of students to flip, deal source, JV, find investors, and undertake the journey to get to Financial Freedom, so they can reach their goals, and spend more time with their family and friends, and live life on their terms.

Stephen Barden is a renowned leadership coach and mediator with over a decade of experience at CEO and executive board level in the media, technology and communications sectors. He has been in private practice since 2001, working across Europe and the USA, helping both individual senior leaders and organisations develop sustainable and ethical cultures aligned with their strategy and overall purpose.

  • Why did you write your book, "How Successful Leaders do Business with their World?"
  • How do you define organizational culture and why is it important for leaders to understand it?
  • What is the "Navigational Stance" approach?

Stephen Barden

Stephen's approach is pragmatic and holistic, emphasising the value of treating the organisation as an eco-system with both internal and external linkages and interdependencies. He also advises senior management and HR departments on Governance and sustainable work practices.

Stephen is the author of the researched book, How Successful Leaders Do Business with Their World. Based on interviews with military, corporate and educational leaders, the book presents compelling evidence that top leaders learn from a very early age to 'do business with the world' by using their power and authority to partner with it, rather than impose themselves on it. Stephen uses these findings and insights, as well as studies from his own corporate leadership.
