Shownotes

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” ― Mother Teresa

When we lose the connection to our reality we tend to lose our purpose and motivation. Coping mechanisms, like alcoholism, will further disconnect us and drive us on a spiral downwards. Listen to Nick Rothwell's story of childhood trauma pushing him to succeed at any price to finally crash and wake up to his own reality. Spoiler alert, allowing himself to connect with people and nature gave him the opportunity to get, and stay, on the path of recovery.

We discuss the importance of connection in our modern society and how to get back there after the pandemic.

About Nick:

Through honest and judgment-free keynote talks, Nick improves education surrounding mental health and offers strategies to develop compassionate corporate environments.

former professional ice hockey player, Nick thrived in the dynamic team sport, a master on skates and an eager team player. As with many sports, there is a lifespan, and once Nick hung up his hockey kit, he threw himself into the world of broadcasting. With an engaging personality and passion for sports, it wasn’t long before Nick became a television host for SKY. From hosting Rink Side Report to the NFL and the Superbowl Nick was an instant hit with viewers and producers alike, thanks to his expertise. However, the fast-paced lifestyle and loneliness took their toll on Nick, who turned to substance abuse, depression and anxiety, a far cry from the life he had lived as a professional sportsman.

In 2016, having overcome his demons, Nick Co-Founded Re-Tribe. Learning the value of community and connectivity, something he had experienced in sports, Nick now encourages others to prioritise this in their own lives.
