keynotes

Keynotes that engage, inform and inspire audiences are crucial to making any event a success. For your next conference, retreat, or All Hands meeting, consider adding a Pure Symmetry keynote to bring an unique perspective to the concept of resilience and high performance in the workplace and in life.

The power of micromessaging

I have taught the skill of resilience to thousands in over 20 countries around the world, catering to diverse audiences of all sizes, both corporate and consumer, on topics such as mindfulness and performance, communication to engage your workforce, micro-aggressions and what to do about them, and dealing with stress in the workplace.


Two of my most popular keynotes explore resilience both from the perspective of the individual, and that of the organization:


Taming the Saber-tooth: Building Resilience in a Stressful World


​Stress and anxiety are increasingly becoming issues in the workplace. Increased competition, longer working hours and higher performance expectations are all contributing to a stressful work environment.

And the news at home isn’t much better. Digitization and always-on technology have blurred the boundaries between work and personal life, removing the natural buffer between them and costing us our health.


We cannot necessarily change our environment but we have the power to shift our response to it by building resilience. By challenging our assumptions, choosing our responses, and nurturing recovery, we can increase performance, balance, and happiness at work and at home.


When Failure is Not an Option: How to Build a Culture of Resilience at Work


Peak performance is the mission of every organization today, Yet in a world where many teams find themselves trying to maximize productivity with declining resources, the pursuit of continual improvement often takes a back seat to pure survival, leading to fear-based work environments. 


The world is complicated, distracting, and evolving at a pace we're not used to. And we ask our employees to do more with less every day, often forgetting that they are people with real challenges, emotions and issues. People do not need to be driven to deliver results - leaders can shape a workplace where people are more likely to show strong optimism and motivation in response to consistency in communications, greater self-awareness, and leaders who prove they put people first. Building resilience in the organizational context is becoming increasingly critical for success.

    some of the points that you shared today
