Blue Connections

Life Saving Victoria  announce the launch of  blue connections – LSV’s Aquatic Network

Session One:  Building Resilience – ‘Everyone Has A Plan Until Sh!t Hits The Fan’

Keynote Speaker: Tofe Evans – Public Speaker, Author, Endurance Athlete

Date: Wednesday 19th December 2018 @ 6.30pm (for 7pm start), LSV State Centre

Session Overview

Join us for an evening of inspiration, development, fun and networking with the backdrop of Port Phillip Bay, sharing insights with water safety enthusiasts from across our state!  Hear from the phenomenal Tofe Evans on the very topical area of resilience and creating a “six pack mind”.

About Tofe

Tofe is a thought leader on resilience not on hacking the body to get you the set of abs you’ve always wanted. He’s here so you have the mental artillery to hold yourself together in case of a traumatic crisis. When everyone focuses on having a six pack body, they forget that having a six-pack mind is more important.

To some, he’s known as “that kid” who ran an ultramarathon down the slopes of Mt Everest. However, to most, he’s known as one of the world’s youngest thought leaders on Practical Resilience and developing a Peak Performance Mindset.

Tofe has completed over 60+ endurance events and when asked: “Why do you put your body through such torture?” he, with a smile, responds with “It can’t be any more painful than what I have had to overcome.”

Tofe understands what it means to fight through adversity after barely making it out of his early twenties with his life. It was a losing battle for Tofe as depression and anxiety fuelled by drugs and alcohol abuse became a staple of his early life.

After a terrifyingly close call, Tofe gave himself two choices, either succumb to the black dog and end it all, or channel that pain into something that would push him even further.
