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.


Numerous studies indicate that employee burnout is the new epidemic. 70% of the general workforce reported experiencing burnout symptoms in 2023, which costs organizations $180 Trillion in lost productivity and up to 200% of a worker’s annual salary if they needed to quit.

Organizations are losing their best workers to burnout at tremendous expense, but what do we do? How do we keep workers engaged and resilient and how can we best support them?

Julian shares his unique method for burnout-free success, inspiring a shared responsibility for stress and burnout management. His blueprint for optimized cultures, systems, and strategy empower organizations to keep employees healthy and engaged, and workers the chance to shine.

  • Discover how to build a burnout-free culture, retain high achievers, and optimize performance

Recent studies show that 70% of the general workforce experienced some degree of burnout in 2023. Increased workloads, lack of autonomy, and insufficient flexibility were just some of the reasons given, with lack of support from leadership and inauthentic management styles not too far behind.

With these higher workloads, archaic systems, and insufficient social environments unlikely to go anywhere soon, how can we learn to thrive? How can we strategize our ability to reduce the stress that turns into burnout?

Building resilience and changing our perception of stress, is the key. When we adapt our thinking and make strategic choices with every-day tasks, we reduce stress and bypass burnout.

Attendees will:

  • Discover the power of Self-Love, Self-Care, Self-Compassion, and Self-Awareness
  • Build unique strategies which quickly promote a healthier approach to work
  • Create a ‘Symphony For Success’, which inspires resilience and greater work/life balance
  • Develop a deep understanding of what they need to thrive
