Gian Power previously worked at Deutsche Bank and PwC and witnessed first-hand some of the Diversity & Inclusion issues that need to be tackled in the corporate world. Importantly he saw the need to create a more emotionally engaged work place.
Recognising that everyone has a story, he wanted to encourage others to share and saw the power of storytelling. In 2015 aged 23, an unexpected family tragedy left Gian leading a murder investigation across two continents. 2016 turned into a year of media interviews, police investigations and endless meetings with government bodies.
When returning back to work, Gian saw the power of being able to share his emotions and being his full self at work. His experiences and inner resilience sparked his passion for creating change. Gian is the founder of TLC Lions, a collective of ordinary people with extraordinary stories. In these powerful, personal and emotive sessions, the Lions (speakers) share stories from the heart that build empathy and understanding in the audience.
Now supporting some of the largest companies globally, Gian is disrupting the traditional speaking scene and revolutionising the way we feel about our emotions in the workplace and beyond. Gian talks about how his own journey to building more emotional leaders in the workplace as well as general wellbeing, how to prevent a breakdown and focus on your own mental health.
