The Secret Sauce: Thriving in Times of Change

Now more than ever, we need a reason to laugh!

Using experiences from her career as an O.R. nurse, Meg will demonstrate how we can use mindfulness techniques to help us build our resilience, shift our perspective and lead us to be more effective in our roles while building healthier and stronger relationships with the people we work with and those who we serve.

This presentation will entertain, inspire, and provide your team with tools they can use to bolster their resilience, self-awareness and inter-personal relationships.

Laughter Makes Us Stronger

A great deal has changed in recent months with the arrival of an unwelcome visitor named Covid 19. In addition to the health threat, virtually every aspect of daily life and routine has been turned on its head. As if our pre-pandemic challenges were not enough! And since we do not know when things are going to get back to ‘normal’, one thing is certain: Now more than ever, we need a reason to laugh!

Meg’s experience in stand-up comedy – and in the hospital operating room – shines through in this hilarious exploration of life in the time of Covid. She offers a humor filled look at the serious issue of stress in our lives, encouraging us to reframe, refocus and stay on course even when our well laid plans get tossed into upheaval.

Meg’s presentation will speak to everyone in the room – whether they are just starting out in their career, or are charged with leading the troops through times of major change – and will offer insights on how we can use humor to boost our resilience and maintain a positive mindset.

Work-Life Balance? You’ve Got to Be Kidding!

Meg offers a humorous perspective on the serious matter of dealing with stress and encouraging us to be mindful of how we allocate our mental and physical energy so we can bounce back from challenge and adversity, and find the confidence needed to handle whatever comes our way.

This presentation brings interactive humor to the subject of resilience, recognizing that finding life balance is a journey – not a destination. Managing all the demands and priorities on our time can prove to be overwhelming. It will inspire, entertain, and leave audience members with strategies to benefit our health and self-confidence, as well as strengthen relationships at work and at home.

Audience reviews:

  • Meg recently spoke to our university—remotely—on the topic of resilience and teamwork. Meg’s approach to this critical topic was knowledgeable, humorous, and sensible. Her presentation packed a lot of information in a short time. Meg made sure that the participants were fully engaged, despite the limitations presented by remote technology to a large group. We received a lot of positive feedback. One of Meg’s traits that impressed me the most was her preparation. She took the presentation seriously, taking time before the presentation to understand the audience and to make sure that technology worked flawlessly well in advance of the presentation. Meg, her approach, and her message are great! - Director Student Legal & Mediation Services, Sam Houston State University
  • She engaged the audience even before the event, getting to know individuals and hearing their opinions, concerns, and successes, and incorporated that feedback into her presentation. Her delivery was awesome- she had the team in stitches- and I had many people tell me it was the best session of its kind they’ve ever experienced. I’m really glad we chose Meg for our event.
