Who is Florence Pérès?
Florence spent over 20 years working in the world of internet and digital media. At the same time, she also studied health sciences and trained to be a mindfulness coach and stress & burnout coach.
She has been a trainer and senior consultant at Better Minds at Work since 2016, where her work includes the ‘Focus je brein en Digitale Balans’ (Focus your brain and Digital Balance) programme, which is based on the Touchpoints method that she has personally developed. She helps organisations to formulate focus and connectivity policy, and trains employees and managers to become more mentally resilient and more resistant against stress. Her book, which is titled Digital Detox, was published in 2017.
Florence, and her fascinating story about the digital detox, immediately captivated the group of almost 50 women. The fact that she combines a great career with a family makes her story even more believable.
She has a warm personality and is able to tell her story with conviction.
Florence captured the attention of the whole audience from the first minute, and was able to mix a theory-based approach with a lot of practical and interactive applications. The audience (ca. 900 employees spread across 6 sessions) will certainly remember the many tips and tricks, which means Florence definitely met our expectations.
Florence was clearly able to fascinate the group and adopted a step-by-step approach. ‘Digital Detox’ was presented in a theoretical and practical manner. This information can be used when seeking a work-life balance and is ideal for modern business environments and people's daily lives. In both these areas, she offered useful tips on focused and varied work, time management, etc. The participants were clearly fascinated and there was a lot of interaction. I am certainly convinced about the benefits of the ‘Digital Detox’ session.
Fascinating, inspirational, educational and full of enthusiasm. Florence masters the art of captivating a group of people. Amazing presentation, and addressed the topics that were important to us.
Florence adopts a light-hearted approach to deliver a strong message effectively. She clearly highlights the impact of our digital addiction, which we all see and feel when constantly reaching for our smartphones (yes, also to write this review!). Very challenging for the audience and for me personally. Four sessions, in two languages, one after the other, but with the same enthusiasm.
