HIGH ON LIFE: Rising Above Self-Imposed Restrictions

Personal Trainer & Primary School Teacher

Vivienne has always been a “taker” in life. Brought up by two loving parents that showed her the world, she learnt early on that there is always another opportunity to grasp - that she can trust her instincts and tackle the consequences of her decisions later. So Vivienne followed her heart from doing an exchange year in the US, getting a dog, to working abroad in Thailand.

Yet, her life didn’t come without some (self-imposed) restrictions and also her career choice to become a school teacher was not love at first sight. She always felt there is more to her and realized that the moments she felt full of life, that she was able to lift those restrictions centered around sports and a healthy lifestyle she started to adopt.

So maybe it came natural, but still was a big step for her to embrace her passion for sports and become a sports coach besides her teaching job. But for Vivienne it is more than “just” a job. She wants to support other women to feel strong and happy in their bodies, create a community where women support each other instead of comparing themselves. Fueled by her own story of lifting her own restrictions and to start living life to the fullest, she wants other women to lift their self-imposed limitations and experience how it can feel like to be “high on life”!

On the WOMEN’S HUB stage, Vivienne will share how her upbringing and life choices made her who she is today and how it gave her this strong sense of purpose following her heart to becoming who she needs to be.


SHINE BRIGHT VISIONARY SOUL: An unconventional journey to awaken the dead zones of the self

Body energy therapist & Creative consultant

“I want to create a healed world, inside and out.” Deep within her, Saghi has always harbored this burning desire. But at the tender age of four, Saghi experienced the horrors of war in Iran, an experience that she now describes as ‘falling into the dead zones of the Self’. Her inner Persian fire, that was meant to manifest her vision, was suffocated.

Her true self became suppressed by layers of depressive episodes, overwhelming numbness, nyctophobia, tension and pain. A persistent auto-immune skin rash was the most visible symptom of her suffering - it was an urgent plea from her body to feel alive again.

Not knowing where all the symptoms were coming from, Saghi intuitively went beyond the boundaries of symptom-oriented medicine. That decision marked the inception of her ten-year deep dive into a holistic healing journey to find lasting inner peace and freedom.

In 2017 her path led her to a profoundly transformative experience at the WOMEN'S HUB DAY. This glimpse of her true self made her realize that she couldn’t pretend anymore. She hit rock bottom and was pushed to the brink, succumbing to burnout. It was at this point that a new door swung open, changing everything for her visionary spirit, and turning her dead zones into the birthplace of her inner light.

On the WOMEN’S HUB stage, Saghi will share how she revitalized the "dead zones" within her body, lighting up the inner fire consistently without burning it out right away and how with that, the genuine journey toward a stress-free embodiment of her Vision truly began.



Executive Coach for Midlife Career Transformations

Claudia De Pasquale's life path has been a pretty intense one. From growing up between two very different cultures, to losing her father at a young age, to burn-out and a challenging perimenopause - it seems like life keeps throwing lemons at her.

Her strong Sicilian roots, which taught her to be suspicious and doubtful of other people, initially served her well in a world where competition and performance take center stage. Claudia embarked on a successful career in private banking, which in hindsight she now knows boosted the worst aspects of her Sicilian heritage.

Her burnout opened up a new world to her - the world of coaching- and for the first time she felt what genuine human connection can feel like. However, it was not without struggle to decide to let go of that world of status and finally embrace her inner calling to stay true to herself by venturing on a a complete career reinvention.

On the WOMEN’S HUB stage, Claudia will share what life taught her about who she is at the core, and about her commitment to showing up even more authentically.
