VIRTUAL KEYNOTES:

Connectivity

In "Connectivity," Kate Davis shows the audience how to establish, cultivate, and keep connections that lead to productivity and success both in business and our personal lives.  +

Whether it’s a CEO connecting with their staff, a client connecting with their customer, or departments connecting with other departments, good communication and rapport within an organization is the source of a flow that leads to creativity, quick resolutions, and a deeper understanding among staff of the overall business purpose. Staying connected to colleagues keeps things on track and is one of the most important elements to an organization's success. --

Out of My Mind… Back in Five Minutes: A Journey from Adaptation to Resilience

This virtual presentation explores techniques of managing our mental health and shares practical solutions for staying healthy and positive even through the most challenging times. +

Davis’ inspiring, humorous, and sometimes touching stories take us on her journey from depression to expression — how she found comedy and how it helped her discover self worth, confidence, and the strength to fight the negativity in her own mind that was keeping her from living the life she deserved.

Audiences will walk away armed with practical methods and techniques that can help boost their mood, add to their enjoyment of life, and, more importantly, allow them to take charge of their mental health. This includes one-minute stress strategies, re-framing how we think about ourselves, being grateful, being in the present, sleep, diet, and exercise, to name a few. --

Balancing Life with Humour

Between our jobs, home, and relationships, learning how to balance our new lives demands a strong sense of personal development and, most importantly, a sense of humour. +

Comedian Kate Davis has the unique ability to find humour in any situation. After being quarantined, diagnosed positive, and beating COVID-19, she experienced first-hand the importance of adaptability — especially in circumstances beyond our control — and how this ability allows us to explore creative solutions that can be applied to every area of our lives.

Davis’ generous insight and outspoken character provides a powerful combination to help organizations empower their staff with effective tools for managing stress and sustaining motivation.

Participants will leave with an understanding of practical techniques for refueling, rediscovering, and re-engaging their true selves and finding a balance, plus learn how to use humour as an instrument of communication to create an atmosphere of compassion, caring, and productivity. --

LIVE KEYNOTES - includes any of the above keynotes plus:

Mind Over Laughter

Kate Davis explores how mindfulness through humour can help us achieve the kind of self-awareness that has the power to affect all areas of our lives in a positive manner. By focusing on the present moment and therefore letting go of negativity we are able to be more present to the life we are in and that is how we expand and create affirmative change. +

Davis teaches practical methods of how to achieve mindfulness through an entertaining, funny journey that leaves her clients with authentic ways of getting in touch with oneself through visualization, playfulness, and storytelling.

For more than a decade, Davis has explored techniques of how lightening up and practicing mindfulness can create a more balanced life both at home and the workplace and create a positive “mind environment” which affects all areas of our life and keeps us healthy. --

"Fun cancels out stress and brings everyone into the moment." This is the recipe for a healthy relationship when it comes to raising our children. Everything changes when we become parents, I think the show "Survivor" shouldn't take place on an island but a new parents' home.

–RBC Assurances

Kate was absolutely phenomenal. We had many comments that she had us belly laughing and the best motivational speaker they have seen in a long time, if ever.

–Ontario Health Information Management Association

We absolutely loved Kate's presentation at both of our sites. She was personable and easy-going in our chat prior to the formal keynote address. I appreciated her relaxed approach when we were unable to provide both types of microphones at each site!! She truly practices and demonstrates what she "preaches" in her talk – taking everything in stride and LAUGHING about life's ups and downs. We received great feedback from both audiences and I was really quite pleased with the events from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Kate!!

–William Olser Health System

Kate is lovely.  She arrived early – stayed until the end – was bubbly and professional. Her presentation was excellent. High energy. Funny. Great messages for being positive. Lots of laughter in the audience. It was a highlight for many as the evening is quite dull with so many awards being presented.

–Halton Healthcare Services

…in no time had us all giggling and laughing. Her subject matter fit perfectly with the age and diversity of our group.
