Every year, we select expert presenters who run in-depth sessions around the abilities and skills that make up the i4 Neuroleader Curriculum. They are true teachers who speak from their heart and with great knowledge, willing to share their secrets of how to achieve leadership effectiveness and personal transformation.
Silvia Damiano is the lead facilitator of the i4 Live Retreat Program in conjunction with 2017 guest speaker Dr. Harald Harung and founders Troy & Nicole Roberts with their RAW Impact team.
Silvia will bring to life the teachings of the i4 Neuroleader Model, a model that focuses on the importance of understanding our biology and connecting to our body and brain processes to enhance our personal leadership, effectiveness and well-being.
This year we will learn about the science of generosity and contribution, and how investing in developing this aspect of ourselves can improve mental and physical health.
Everyone seeks to attain excellence and happiness in their lives, yet world-class performance is rare. Dr. Harung, author of 'Invincible Leadership' will be sharing the secrets of how to achieve excellence in any profession or activity, which is what he calls ‘high mind-brain development’.
This single variable is more important than the knowledge, skills, and relationships we have and what we do, because with higher mind-brain development, our knowledge and skills become more useful, our relationships more enriching, and our actions more effective.
Troy & Nicole Roberts, founders of RAW Impact will lead the practical aspect of the retreat which takes place on Gunty’s Island. You will have the opportunity to participate in a building project for an impoverished community close to the capital of Phnom Penh, experiencing this incredible country and its people through meaningful activities that will spark the spirit of generosity within you.

Hayley will be taking us on a mini Movement Journey each morning to start our day off in a positive, energized way. We will be using breath, sound, gentle movement and stretching, to sink into our bodies and hearts, and get out of the mind. This will be the perfect accompaniment to all the brain activity and building of houses! We will let go, shake, be free and have fun together.
Our on-the-ground partner for the 2017 retreat program is RAW Impact, a non-for-profit organisation registered with the Cambodian Government, in partnership with Global Development Group Australia, which operates out of Phnom Penh.
RAW Impact's vision is to raise awareness worldwide and inspire powerful change through life-changing volunteer experiences and sustainable projects in Cambodia.
Major projects have included the relocation of 100 displaced families and the recent construction of a school for 280 students, which was designed and engineered by French and Australian companies.
The focus of the retreat is on cultivating generosity and exploring the science of contribution. We are excited to be donating $1,000 per participant, to raise much needed funds for the materials of the RAW Impact Building Project on Gunty's Island, home to an impoverished displaced families.
As part of this program, you will have the chance to fundraise for the RAW Impact - 2017 i4 Live Retreat Project and support this wonderful cause. All of RAW Impact's projects aim to provide sustainable solutions to reduce long term poverty in a country that has experienced a very dark history.
