YOUR RESULTS MATTER
Our world of work has rapidly changed. Many organisations are facing complex and uncertain times trying to figure out the ‘new normal’ and this is having an impact on the mental health and wellbeing of their people.
Our resilience has never been tested to such a degree before and we need to act fast and equip people with the knowledge, tools and strategies to ride this new rollercoaster in a vastly different way.
We need to move from hanging on for dear life to jumping in the front carriage with our hands in the air!
Change Your Brain for Radical Resilience is the critical message for those who are experiencing unprecedented levels of change in their work life and looking for strategies to maintain and increase motivation, engagement and productivity and most importantly, wellbeing.
Using neuroscience and positive psychology as its foundation, this keynote educates, engages and encourages an attitude of radical resilience.
In this thought-provoking, content-rich session:-
- Unlock how our brains deal with uncertainty and what to do to change for good
- Explore the strategies of radically resilient people
- Learn a powerful model for moving from fearing to embracing uncertainty
- Practise how to switch from reacting emotionally to responding calmly
- Master changing perspectives – turning obstacles into opportunities
- Move from a ‘fixed’ to ‘growth’ mindset approach for greater adaptability
Habits are necessary – they help us to function effectively in an increasingly fast-paced and complex world – but are our habits helping or hindering our effectiveness and productivity?
At least 50% of what we do on a daily basis might feel like conscious decisions, but are actually automated processes – habits. (Prof. Wendy Wood USC).
The difference between a highly productive day and leaving work feeling frustrated is down to habits and routines of productivity. It’s time to identify what’s working – what’s not – and make a sustainable change.
Change Your Brain for Habits of Excellence is a powerful message for anyone who wants better results from their time and time to design better results – it all comes down to developing stronger habits.
In this highly practical and enlightening session:
- Explore how our brain creates and forms habit
- Identify the 3 critical elements of a habit and which one to change for success
- Work on a habit that’s been hindering you and change it for good
- Understand why energy is more important than time and how it helps create efficiency habits
- Discover productivity hacks to turn into new habits of excellence
- Come away feeling inspired to action by applying the H.A.B.I.T. formula for greater productivity, a healthier lifestyle and a real sense of achievement
Unconscious bias is at the forefront of the agenda of many organisations and understandably so. It impacts so many of the decisions we make and the results that we get, without us being consciously aware of its effects.
Our unconscious biases directly affect not only who gets hired, fired, developed and promoted, but also the ability of teams to perform at a high level, the effectiveness of our leaders in decision-making and change, the health of an organisation’s culture and the relationship it has with its stakeholders.
Change your Brain for Bridging the Bias Gap is a highly interactive keynote that explores the world of human evolution, neuroscience and the different approaches being taken to address workplace bias. The focus is on increasing our understanding of the most prevalent biases that impact our ability to be impartial and objective and on developing practical strategies to deal with bias effectively.
In this highly enlightening session we explore:
- How, if we have a brain, we are biased!
- The role of our brain in creating unconscious bias in ourselves and others
- Understanding the origins and influencers of unconscious bias
- The key biases that drive behaviour in our workplace
- How to make the unconscious conscious through self-awareness
- Strategies for mitigating bias at work

Clare’s Keynote on ‘Moving from Working Harder to Working Smarter’ was inspiring, motivational and engaging. Clare used evidence-based theories on brain thinking and simplified her message as to how we can use this in our day to day as recruitment owners. I would highly recommend Clare.
I engaged Clare to work with my team at TIBCO UK, knowing (from our time at SAP) she had the experience and professional presence to immediately command respect with my sales team. Clare delivered, helping me establish a ‘team’ mentality where the team was able to embrace change and drive higher motivation.
Clare is able to break down the complex theories of neuroscience, so they can be easily understood by the audience. She teaches you how to harness the power of your mind so you can improve yourself and your productivity at work. I would highly recommend Clare to speak at your next event.
Clare is a pleasure to work with! Her presentation on ‘Thriving in the Challenge of Change’ at our recent EA conference in Sydney was really enjoyable and full of great insights. She is an engaging speaker with loads of energy and passion. I can’t wait to work with her at our future conferences!
