Keeping Your People at their Best when the Pressure's On

Interactive Event Keynotes, Masterclasses and Lunch-and-Learns

However talented, dedicated or experienced they are, every one of your event attendees deals with stress, uncertainty and change every day: Competing priorities, difficult customers, tight deadlines… Or non-work issues, like relationship problems, adverse health or money worries. They’ll take most of those challenges in their stride. But the more they build up, the more they impact performance.  So how do you keep your people on top form? 

Sue specialises in changing mindsets and behaviours, empowering audiences to develop more resourceful thinking, and unlocking their ability to

  • Worry less about things they can’t influence,
  • Sleep better, and make better decisions,
  • Solve problems and communicate more effectively,
  • And to perform more consistently, even through uncertainty, challenges and change

During more than 10 years of delivering to around 25,000 people, from many different types of organisation, Sue's average session satisfaction score is 9.2 out of 10. 

Attendees choose a situation they want to feel better about, and score how they feel about it.  After exploring the first few skills, they score it again

I attended a helpful talk by Sue which helped me to consciously reflect on the stress in my work. She discussed helpful techniques for managing both difficult situations and internal struggles that have proved useful already.

Sue has some really insightful and thought provoking ideas, which she delivers in a really engaging and fun manner. Her sessions on addressing stress are fantastic. Would definitely recommend her if you want to address this as an issue.

P Parry, Heritage Lottery Fund

Sue is fantastic! Charming, excellent presentation, warm, has high positive energy, and has practical advice/suggestions. It really helped me start to fix an issue I had for a long time, stress eating, and give me great strategies.

I tested her advice in the same evening and it worked. I still have moments when I am overwhelmed, but going back to what she suggested restores the balance.

Sue is an amazing trainer, speaker and facilitator. I have a short attention span, but Sue’s talk on “Skills to Keep Stress Useful” was was engaging, captivating and intriguing. Her presentation skills are second to none.

The session helped us (me particularly) gain clarity on the biggest drawbacks to managing stress, and the framework for stress success. She impressively kept everyone’s full attention for the entire session - entertaining, yet point driven!
