Living life on the Other side of fear.

Jason will share his 5 A system to Live, Work and Thrive on the Other Side of FEAR that he developed and used to finally break through his anxiety issues mainly caused by FEAR, that he had just accepted and lived with for over 3 decades and that had held him back in his personal and business life.

For over a decade Jason shared his accident story telling people  ‘don’t be like me’ however this new presentation is no longer about Health and Safety, telling people what NOT to do but by sharing his own transformation, developing his 5 A system to Live, Work and Thrive on the other side of Fear, showing people WHAT TO DO, helping to create a positive CULTURE in the workplace where people are given the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive, to be the best version of themselves inside and outside of work, which positively impacts production, quality, oh and safety which can only be a positive requirement for any business.

The H&S shackles are off and Jason shares things that he has not spoken about before, he will talk about how he developed a system over the last 6 years that has not only changed his life but had such a positive effect on his family, friends and colleagues.

This 90-minute interactive presentation is a must for any organisation wanting the employees to have a greater understanding of the relationship between success and failure.

Success without failure is often seen as incomplete or lacking depth. Failure is a natural part of the journey toward success, and it provides valuable lessons, resilience, and growth. Without experiencing failure, success may not be fully appreciated or understood.

A 2 hour version is also available


Tim is considered a world authority on the subject of human error and organisational culture and has given key note talks around the world - including Africa, New Zealand, The Far East and the Middle East as well as through-out Europe and the USA. He was the closing key note at the first ever Campbell Institute Thought Leadership conference in Dallas, Texas in 2015 and has published several best selling books. In recent years Tim has returned to where he first started – mental health at work. (His first job in the early 1990s looking at suicide in young army recruits).

Tim’s new talk, prepared exclusively for P2BS, draw on his extensive academic knowledge and proven individual and organisational resilience methodologies that make individuals and workplaces flourish and thrive. Be assured, however, that his talks are humorous, highly interactive and user-friendly - illustrated with famous quotes, case studies and sporting analogies. In, short, everything you could ever need to know about why people screw up – and what we as individuals (and organisations) can do to stop that happening.

Life Remixed: Looking Beyond The Dance To Face The Music.

As an International DJ and Resident at Ministry of Sound, Mark was having the time of his life until at 33 years of age, his leg gave way, and he couldn’t get up off the floor. This was the start of a hellish experience as his body froze up over the next 18 months resulting him in being unable to walk. He was in constant agony and living on painkillers, which eventually led to bankruptcy, depression, loneliness, and suicidal thoughts. He lost everything!

Mark shares the impact and negative effects this all had on his health, wealth, and happiness, so others can avoid going down the same path, charting his recovery from crisis.

In his debut book: Life Remixed and his talks, Mark shares simple changes we can all make in our day to day lives that can have an incredibly positive impact on our wellbeing, giving us the resilience to stop simply surviving and start truly thriving in all aspects of life.

Jason Schechterle

Retired Phoenix Police Officer

Burning Shelid

Growing up, Jason had one dream - to serve as a Phoenix Police Officer.  Inspired by his brother and the tragic loss of a local law enforcement hero, Jason worked persistently towards his dream. After serving four years in the Air Force, at the age 26, Jason achieved his goal to work on the streets of Phoenix as a rookie police officer.  Then, only 14 months into what was supposed to be a life-long career, Jason's life took an unexpected, dramatic and, at the time, tragic turn.

On the night of March 26th, 2001, a taxi cab crashed into the rear of Jason's patrol car.  Upon impact, Jason's car burst into flames, trapping him inside with temperatures reaching over 700 degrees.

Through a series of miraculous and fateful circumstances, Jason survived the crash and ensuing physical and emotional catastrophe.  He suffered severe burns to over 40% of his body which drastically altered his appearance. He has undergone more than 50 surgeries just to have the ability to accomplish simple daily tasks we often take for granted.  

Jason's journey chronicles his fight for life, his triumph over tragedy and the inspiration that enables him to continue to overcome unimaginable adversity.  His personal narrative exemplifies that the power of the human spirit can never be underestimated or extinguished.  His story is also a testament of true love and the dedication Jason and his wife have in their commitment to honor their family and the vows of marriage in good times and bad. 

His story is one of life, rebirth and transformation. Jason represents the human experience at its very best - an ascent from despair to describing himself as the luckiest person alive!
