- Happiness and Success: The Serious Business of Positive Emotions (Most Popular Keynote)
Get a blast of personal and corporate well-being in this inspirational introduction to the science of positive psychology. Learn about the research results that prove happiness leads to greater success. Come away with simple, applicable skills that will fuel your personal happiness and create positive contagion amongst the people you influence.
The field of positive psychology research has massively expanded our understanding of human potential. Most of this discovery has happened in the last 15 years. We now know that happiness is not a lucky outcome resulting from a fortunate upbringing. Rather, happiness generally results from skills we can all learn.
If your company knows “what to do”, but too often falls short, you will discover new insights about how to powerfully engage employees and change corporate culture.
- Scientifically connecting happiness with success
- Neurophysiology: how the brain can be re-wired
- Overcoming negativity bias
- Gratitude and appreciative inquiry
- Necessity of healthy social relationships
- Leaders as Role Models: Stepping Beyond the Limitations of Management
Many leaders come to their roles as a function of their expertise in a specific subject matter, but leadership requires more than job-specific skills. Leadership is a way of being. This talk de-emphasizes what we individually know and instead asks us who we are.
Traditional employee engagement programs often buy the loyalty of employees’ bodies, but do not win their hearts and minds. In this workshop, learn direct interventions that change the way employees FEEL about their work and their workmates. Leverage positive psychology to bring creativity, productivity and joy into your workplace!
Men and women who influence the behaviour of staff can learn a mindset that shifts them from overseers of business processes to genuine leaders—seeing the big picture, articulating the direction, and embracing their team in a collaborative and committed mission. Transformative organizational change occurs when bosses are coaches who lead with emotional intelligence and profound personal integrity.

- Mindfulness Everywhere: The Secret Weapon for Life and Business
Why the heck is everyone talking about mindfulness these days? Mindfulness is the most researched of all positive psychology interventions. And the evidence is overwhelming clear: mindfulness is as foundational to good mental health as nutrition and exercise are to physical health.
This presentation takes the mystery out of mindfulness and calls on participants to take their mental and emotional well-being seriously. Participants learn how the mind physically changes as a result of regular mindfulness practice. Theory is grounded in practical application during the workshop.
With a foundation in science, taught with energy and humor, and served as a practical invitation, this workshop reveals what all the excitement is about. With over 25 years of personal experience in mindfulness practices, your facilitator has a rich understanding of how impactful this training can be.

- #MeToo In a Man’s World: A Discussion Like None Other about Workplace Respect!
How do we talk about gender discrimination without the conversation being “heavy”, “awkward“, and “depressing”? How do we address issues of misogyny and violence against women without men reacting defensively?
This uplifting, funny presentation gets right at the heart of these issues while insightfully demonstrating that the path forward lifts everyone—men and women. Paul shows how gender stereotypes that limit women also limit men. Observing the real opportunities of 21st-century industrial innovation, this conversation is about personal and corporate momentum. Organizations that can anticipate the new economy can also navigate the era of #MeToo.
