Speech Topics

Transforming Stress: Simple Tools for Sustainable Performance

In Transforming Stress, participants will understand the impact of chronic stress on the brain and body, learn how a simple shift in mindset can dramatically alter physiological responses to stress, utilize brain-training techniques for mental strength, flexibility, and endurance, practice simple techniques for altering daily stress patterns to improve natural rhythms, and create an action plan to support personal energy management. Instead of stopping stress, this program helps participants embrace stress as an opportunity to learn, make course corrections and optimize performance as a result of tackling challenges head on.

Recharge Your Brain and Your Business

In Recharge, participants will learn how to train the brain to manage energy more efficiently in order to radically improve resilience, productivity and performance. Energy management is discussed using an applied neuroscience approach, starting first with techniques to balance brain chemistry, build brain health and boost brainpower. With the brain in an energized state, we are then able to bring our best attention and effort to the task at hand. Techniques for enhancing energy and engagement within teams and throughout the organization will also be discussed.

Beyond Funny: Unleash the Power of Healthy Humor

In Beyond Funny, participants will discover the many health and performance benefits of strategic humor at work. In this interactive exploration of laughter, mirth, and wit, participants will understand why experiences of humor change brain chemistry, reduce stress in the body, and optimize communications, sales and marketing, and leadership capacities. Individuals will create a Beyond Funny Tool-kit to apply to their daily routines and feel confident in using humor interventions in the office and at home.
