Courageously bounce forwards, not back

Our greatest skill as professionals during these uncertain times is being able to embrace change and extract insights from our challenges so we can keep moving forward. We know now more than ever before that adversities come in all shapes and sizes … but so do opportunities. When we find the courage to maximise the opportunities in our challenges, it allows us to continue to grow as professionals and become better leaders, better mentors, better colleagues and better humans.

You will learn about:

  • Mindset Management - how to quickly transform feelings of overwhelm into focus and determination so you can show up to the next meeting, sales presentation, or customer call with optimism and assertiveness.
  • Mentally Healthy Workplaces - the four most important qualities to implement that will create a thriving work environment for yourself, your colleagues and your clients.
  • Micro-wins - how to keep your momentum going by acknowledging the small milestones along the way, which enables you to continue to strive for your big, hairy, audacious goals.

This inspiring presentation is based on the business insights Heidi learned from leading the planning, building (and eventual destruction) of a community library on a remote tropical island, and the impact that courage has when striving to achieve professional goals.

      Everyone Was Spellbound By Her Extraordinary Experiences

      “Heidi is an inspiring and engaging storyteller who has turned her extraordinary experiences into practical, clear strategies which we can all implement immediately into our corporate lives.

       Replenish your resilience resources

      To have a resilient organisation we first need resilient leaders and teams. This presentation is designed to help you replenish your professional resilience resources so you can better deal with the curveballs and cannonballs that we can’t control. Whether you are experiencing changing business models, financial challenges, disengaged teams, or feelings of overwhelm in this uncertain world, this impactful session will empower you with practical strategies that you can immediately implement.

      You will learn about:

      1. Priorities - the number one daily habit you need to prioritise to ensure your professional strengths and capabilities are maximised so you can adapt to this ever-changing business environment.
      2. Performance - a strategy on how to flip your automatic response to stressful situations and conversations into a high-performing state of flow so you can get more done, in less time, with fewer mistakes.
      3. Perseverance - to proactively replenish your resilience resources with my signature 5-part formula that will help you to persevere when everything feels overwhelming which will mean you can bend rather than break during high-pressured times.

      This inspiring presentation is based on the resilience and perseverance insights Heidi learned from hitting rock bottom after petrol bombs were thrown at her room during an overseas volunteer mission, with the intention to burn her and her team alive while they slept.

        Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Bangkok - The Audience Loved Her

        “We had the absolute pleasure of working with Heidi throughout the 2019 Future of Leadership series in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Bangkok. The audience loved what she brought to the stage and the great learnings she shared for all in the attendance. She was equally as delightful to work with off stage which is hugely important to us. We loved working with Heidi and I have no doubt if you book her you will be just as thrilled.”

        Peter Baines, Company Director, Hands Across The Water

        Mental health matters: Stop. Revive. Thrive.

        This wellbeing presentation is designed to show you practical micro-changes that you can make in life, to transform daily stress and feelings of overwhelm into productivity and performance.

        We know that work is much harder when we are feeling mentally wobbly. These practical mindset and self-care strategies will help you to take back control and prioritise your mental health so you can continue to strive for your professional goals.

        You will learn about:

        • Boundaries - the 'non-negotiable' boundaries to incorporate that will improve your mental health and ability to cope with setbacks.
        • Burnout Buffer - a simple yet powerful formula to ensure you can effectively create a buffer between your work life and home life (even if you WFH) so you don't burn out.
        • Brain & Body Reboot - structured self-care habits to help you focus and concentrate when it matters, and rest and rejuvenate when it is needed.

        This inspiring presentation is based on the mindset and self-care insights Heidi learned after contracting two random viruses – one that left her without the use of her legs for eight months and one that caused so much pain when she moved it felt like every bone in her body was smashing.
