Hi There -

We're Moira & Erik, partners in business and in life. We believe we all have untapped potential and our ability to learn individually and collectively is at the heart of unleashing that. Our perspective is grounded in the 30 year history of the Activ8 high performance framework

In 2007, our personal and work lives suddenly collided. Our unborn son was given less than 25% chance of survival at birth because of a severe birth defect. We were advised to terminate our pregnancy. Our existing beliefs were shattered, which launched us into our own learning journey.

What happened from there has been an adventure and life-given PhD in human potential. Our son and his medical team taught us the power of clarity over certainty, connection and commitment.

In many of our sessions, workshops and talks, we share our learning from our personal journey and connect it with relevant aspects of the Activ8 High Performance Framework.

We bring a mix of storytelling, science and experiential learning, to create highly engaging and impactful events. In our workshops, we delve into application and practices to support deep engagement and transformational change.

We'd love to connect and hear more about your team, family or community!



We integrate our core beliefs and human performance framework to create high impact for your audience. We spend time getting clear about your desired outcomes, concerns, and needs so our talks and workshops are always highly customized to ensure an impactful and engaging experience.

Here are a few of our more popular topics:


In a rapidly changing world, the desire for certainty can limit our ability to take action. Without action, our ability to learn and innovate is limited and slow. Understand the power of focusing on clarity to inspire commitment and alignment to take effective action.


"What's gotten you where you are, is what's getting in the way of what's next" - Unknown.

Often it's our own belief systems that limit what's possible. REAL breakthroughs happen when we put practices in place to reveal our limiting beliefs and create new possibilities we didn't previously see. High performance teams care far more about opportunity for improvement than they do about preserving personal images -- they will not trade a chance for extraordinary achievement for a shallow version of community.


Experience how mindset can help redefine wealth to create greater opportunity and clarity to design a life well lived.  We will introduce tools and experiences to help transcend your definition of Wealth Assets beyond material assets and guide a process to help you gain more clarity on what is important to you and why.
