Short Description:

Formerly the Music Director of the Broadway musical ‘Hamilton’, Julian Reeve is a CEO and International Speaker committed to inspiring healthier attitudes to work. Fueled by his stress-related heart attack, aged just 43, he empowers audiences with strategic resilience for burnout-free success.


Human beings have a tremendous ability to be compassionate to others, but are notoriously bad at being kind to themselves. Why?

Numerous studies suggest the principle reason is the absence of ‘self-love’. We don’t feel worthy of it because we haven’t earned it; we don’t deserve it; or we refuse to apply it because it will somehow affect our results and achievements.

How do we cultivate self-love in a harsh and judgmental world? How can we galvanize feelings of worthiness to give ourselves what we freely give to others, and go on to realize our full potential?

Julian shares unique insights from his personal experiences with depression, perfectionism, and ill-health, and the mindset needed to recover. He teaches the secrets to self-compassion, and how a daily routine of gratitude, joy, and connection can help us thrive.

Attendees will:

  • Connect with their voice, their breath, and their authenticity
  • Be inspired and motivated to make positive change in their lives, quickly and effectively
  • Build routines that propel them to greater happiness and success
  • Commit to a ‘Radical Self-Care Pledge’ created in the room, designed to help them implement their learning at home

NB: in-person keynotes include a fun and interactive musical experience from the Broadway musical, ‘Hamilton’


Critically acclaimed for his work on the Broadway smash-hit musical Hamilton, Julian’s rich and varied career experience is compelling.   He graduated with honors from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, England, before embarking on a highly successful career as a musician, educator, and entrepreneur.   He performed to millions across six continents around the world as a Music Director, winning The Los Angeles Drama Critic Circle Award for Best Music Direction on the Broadway musical Hamilton before leading it’s first presentations at the John F.

Ferrè in Puerto Rico (with Lin Manuel Miranda).   A seasoned entrepreneur, Julian has founded four successful businesses in the creative sector including the London based boutique talent agency, Boland & Reeve Ltd (now Collective Agents) and Perfect Equilibrium™ in Los Angeles. He has also worked in many diverse roles outside of performing including concert / tour promoter, theatre producer, and record company executive.   As a coach, he has inspired thousands of students of all ages in performance and performance psychology across the USA, Europe, Canada, Scandinavia, and Japan, with the promotion of self-compassion and well-being central to his message.   Julian suffered a heart-attack aged just 43, a direct result of stress, workaholism, and perfectionism. Now fully recovered and retired from performing, he uses this experience together with extensive research to inspire organizations and high achievers to adopt a healthier approach to work.   Julian is an Advisory Board Member for’s Research Institute (Employee Retention), and a noted authority on perfectionism.
