Signature Keynote Speeches:

People Matter

Putting people first is the key to success in business and in life.

In this very personal keynote I share my story to demonstrate how all the wins on the board are great but not at the expense of the people around you. I will highlight to your audience the lessons I learned from missing the key element of people! This is a powerful message of the importance of the people in your team and your organisation.

Your audience will take away the key messages and strategies to ensure the people who get the work done are the people who matter:

  • When you master the art of delegation you are making your people matter
  • Feedback is essential for making your people know they matter
  • When you are present with your people, you let them know they matter
  • Communicating openly and honestly is the foundation of demonstrating that your people matter


Every Day Is A Big Day In Business

Shifting from surviving to thriving is easier than you may think.

In a world that is demanding you to deliver more and find ways to deliver better, to be connected 24/7, it simply means that every day becomes a high powered, high pressured BIG day!

Through my own stories, I’ll inspire your audience to take stock of the status quo as in order to prevent burnout, costly mistakes, fractured workplace (and potentially family) relationships and lost business. I’ll show how multitasking is the thief of time and how your audience can be more productive by not multitasking, being truly present, and finding focus.

This is an engaging session with a fun twist in which attendees will take away some simple put powerful tips and tools for greater productivity. Your audience will shift from just surviving to thriving!

  • The world of work and you
  • Every Big Day starts with you
  • Being productive needs your presence
  • Focus so you shift from survive to thrive
  • Multi-tasking isn’t multi-tasking, it’s theft
  • How you can get more done in the same time you’ve always had


D3: Delegation for Development, Delight and De-stress!

Making delegation your master tool for leadership success.

Are you sick of being first in and last out every day? Do you take work home with you? Do you feel as though your life is flying by with not enough success or achievements to match?

I share some of my leadership journey showing your audience how delegation is a masterful tool for developing teams and finding delight in the work. The stories I share highlight how delegation is a de-stressor when it’s implemented strategically and fully.

This is an engaging and educational session where your audience will take away the tools and inspiration to start delegating immediately. This session makes a positive impact instantly.
