Keynote Topics

Creative Resilience

We wish to quickly rebound from difficulties.  Yet, an unwanted extra pump of syrup in our latte can leave us unhinged. 

Seeking comfort, we learn to avoid challenges that would vaccinate us against adversity - stress inoculation.  

You might not think that you are creative, but you would be wrong.  Creativity is an elemental human gift. We are all wired to create, like we breathe or poop.  Choose creativity, and you choose uncertainty, vulnerability, and failure. Learn how to fail when the stakes are low, to build self assurance, and the sweet taste of success in perseverance.

I speak to those facing change and uncertainty, and who struggle to rebound from challenges. My mission is to reunite you with your creative self, to unleash the power of your elemental human gift, even if you think your creativity is lost.  Let me help you find your hidden spark of creativity, to fuel your resilience.

Creativity for the Future

Can you believe that 85% of jobs in 2030 don’t even exist yet? 

The future of work involves rapid change, shifting skill requirements, and moving targets. People in science or technical fields could suffer the most. Encouraged to chase rabbits down holes, they could be left behind, counting their carrots.   Companies need to shift quickly to stay competitive, but how do they do this without a revolving door of recruitment? Why can’t people just accept necessary change? Why are people so stubborn, clinging to what’s comfortable?  

Imagine that employees could learn to adapt to change, and possibly even embrace adaptations to their skill sets.  Close that revolving door of recruitment.  In an environment where learning is embraced, innovation flourishes. People resistant to change are often afraid of trying something new, and failing. They are comfortable.  Comfort is not the destination, but a misleading detour into complacency, and becoming....stuck.

Unlock the essential human element of creativity, to face uncertainty with more confidence, and thrive in the rapidly changing workplace.

Unconventional Inspiration

Finding new solutions is what gets me up in the morning. Don't tell me "because it always has been done that way". Infinite curiosity  drives me and my decisions.  I am unashamedly unapologetic about my varied interests.

My curiosity inspired me to learn the world of e-commerce, spend a day as a Carnie at the Townsville Fair,  perform stand-up comedy, and enroll in a Certificate of professional management. ADHD much?  Not a liability, but a diversified, unique skill set to connect disparate concepts that translate to unconventional yet effective results.

If you are looking for someone to deliver a conversational, funny, and paradigm shifting talk to conservative professionals, without scaring them senseless, then I'm here for you. I have diverse experience (20+years) as a veterinarian in research, clinical practice, teaching, industry, wildlife, conservation and zoo medicine. I have built two websites (three if you include this easy little one). I built and operated a service based temporary staffing business, as well an online jewelry business, starting both brands from scratch. I will help you connect random concepts that will open your eyes to all the possibilities. 

You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step -- Martin Luther King
