Speaker Topics

Ann has spoken throughout the UK and India bringing her wealth of knowledge into her presentations with a light touch which enables participants to grasp the facts and make them their own.

‘How to get back your Mojo’

An overview of the book of the same name, introducing the Health Gremlins.  This original concept, clarifies recent research in Medicine, explaining how awareness of your thoughts, attitudes, lifestyle and life skills are vital to a healthy, sustained life full of vitality (Mojo)

Neuroscience Demystified

An explanation from a scientist with many years of experience in research and training.  Neuroscience is the most exciting aspect of scientific research at the moment, as it is opening up understanding of body systems and, vitally, how they interact.  The Mind / Body connection is finally being exposed and the challenge is to embrace this exciting and wondrous new/old concept.

Positive Psychology, Resilience and how to get it

There is an old saying – “You can take a horse to water but you can’t make it drink”. This statement epitomises the basis of this topic.  Being positive and optimistic comes from within and when combined with flexibility and commitment, you will achieve your aims and goals…..or find better ones on the way!

A Dog’s View of Management

This original topic takes a look at the aspects and effects of ‘management’ from the point of view of the dog, Mac the Doodle.  Mac is Ann’s family dog and being part Poodle he has definite opinions on quite a few topics while his Labrador side provides stability and doggedness/determination.   This light hearted presentation provides insights and amusement on process and procedures in the workplace.
