Max Strom’s talks and events are based on his life practice system, Inner Axis, a field-tested method to help heal multiple health related issues such as stress, anxiety, and sleeplessness.  As Max says, “You will feel better after only 10 minutes, and by the end of the session you will be more relaxed and clear-minded than you have for a long time.” Max’s interaction with audience participants both inspires greater self-insight as well as equips them with straightforward practices they can immediately apply in their professional and personal lives. Through Inner Axis, Max teaches the audience to not only address the daily stress of living and working in fast-paced environments but doing so in a healthy and sustainable way bringing forth a more focused mind and healthier life habits. The result is the improved well-being of an individual and increased productivity and cost-savings for the organization.

Many know Max for his two inspiring books: A Life Worth Breathing, now published in five languages, and his most recent title, There is No APP for Happiness, addressing the challenge of finding meaning in the digital age.

“There is No App for Happiness should be recommended reading for all leaders and development professionals.” – Travis Southwick, Lieutenant Colonel, United States Army

“After almost 15 years of running America’s most popular beach vacation website to the Caribbean and Mexico, I realized I needed more than just a getaway! All of the stress, sleeplessness, and anxiety caused by the relentless drive to build a better company had finally caught up with me. Max’s Inner Axis system helped to manage and relieve the pressures of the corporate world and shift my focus to building a better me -which in turn benefit my family, my business associates, employees, customers and my life.” – “Caribbean Jim” Hobbs, founder, COMM Group / CheapCaribbean.com

He taps into the zeitgesit of the times and provides a solution for increased happiness and success in the business (and ‘busyness’) of life.” – Kirsten Orchard, Studio Orchard

Sample Speaking Themes

Surviving Your Success

Will you survive your success? Assuming you achieve your professional goals and then do a cost-benefit analysis of your achieved goals vs. the cost to your physical health and you and your family’s emotional health, what will be the return on investment?  We need a sustainable life AND a sustainable life in our own body. This inspiring and insightful talk by Max helps you to see the world differently, and even course-correct the trajectory of your life to create sustainable success in all aspects of your life – professional and personal.

End Anxiety and Re-inspire: The Extraordinary power of Conscious Breathing Patterns

We currently have an epidemic of stress and anxiety in the business world that is stifling creativity, leadership, and eroding retention. In the face of such a pervasive problem, it might seem that something as simple as intentional breathing couldn’t possibly help.  But scientific research and Max’s personal experience engaging with audiences in hundreds of cities around the world have both found that utilizing conscious breathing patterns for a few minutes every day is the most productive approach for creating immediate relief from stress and anxiety. In this lecture, followed by some interactive instruction, Max teaches leaders how to use breathing patterns to trigger more inspiration, focus, health, and more calm in our lives.

The New Imperative of Ethics in Business

With the saturation of the Internet and social networking in our everyday life and work, we have inadvertently entered a new age of increasing transparency. The positive side of this is that it will cause businesses to be held responsible for unethical actions, while also informing us of those with the highest integrity.  Businesses will finally realize that ethics are an essential resource.  To manufacture a product you need energy, raw materials, and human recourses; similarly, ethics should be cultivated, protected and supervised by the company as a primary, essential resource.  It is essential because without ethics, your mission will be damaged, your reputation will be damaged, and most importantly, the world itself will be damaged.

There Is No App For Happiness

There are two extreme trends occurring now that are massively impacting our society and causing tectonic changes in our culture.

Trend 1: Technology is exploding exponentially.

Trend 2: We are becoming less happy.

Technology has begun to distract and overwhelm us and now we find that the wealthiest societies of the world have become depressed, anxious, sleep deprived, and overmedicated. This talk explores the innate technology within us- the forgotten knowledge that can empower the most meaningful areas of our lives and asserts that it is through finding meaning -we find real happiness. There Is No App for Happiness is a thought-provoking, empowering, and action-oriented talk that will propel you into a new and more meaningful experience of your life at work and at home.

Don’t miss the chance to hear and learn from one of today’s foremost teachers of wellness, breath-based movement, and finding meaning in the digital age. Contact Ingrid at [email protected] for more information and to discuss your needs.
