VIRTUAL / LIVE KEYNOTES:

Balancing Life with Humour +

We are all jugglers and the first ball to drop is usually our own.

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. --

Innovation Through Connectivity +

We want the fastest, most stable connection possible in all areas of our lives.

Kate Davis shows the audiences how to establish, cultivate, and maintain 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. --

Mind Over Laughter +

It’s Impossible to laugh and not be in the moment.

Kate Davis explores how mindfulness through humour can help us achieve 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 over a decade, Davis has explored techniques of how lightening up and practicing mindfulness can create a more balanced life, both at home and work, and create a positive “mind environment” which affects all areas of our life and keeps us healthy. --

Out of My Mind… Back in Five Minutes: A Journey from Expression to Depression +

Kate Davis explores techniques of managing our mental health and shares practical ways to stay healthy and positive even through the toughest times.  Her inspiring, humorous, and touching stories takes audiences on a journey from depression to expression. Davis shares how she found comedy and how it helped her discover self worth, confidence, and the ability to fight the negativity in her own mind that was keeping her from living the life she deserved.

“Out of My Mind” explores the way we feel about ourselves and others, as well as our ability to manage our feelings and deal with everyday difficulties. From practical methods like learning one-minute stress strategies that you can do at the office or home, or breaking up the monotony with Rejuvenation 101 (that’s a long list!), to the methods available that allows us to take charge our own mental health, including how we think about ourselves, being grateful, being in the present, sleep, diet, and exercise to name a few. All these methods can ultimately boost our mood, build resilience, and add to the overall enjoyment of our life.

Audiences leave this keynote with the feeling that knowledge is power and that we all play a role in our mental health. --

Funny Mommy: Parenting with Humour Lecture & Workshop +

Your Leisure Time Should not be Folding Laundry.

This lecture/workshop gives parents, caregivers, educators, and social service providers the tools to help defuse the chaos and stress of their lives through humour. Kate Davis helps audiences to remember themselves, accept where they are, and not feeling guilty about where they are not. It combines stand-up comedy with practical techniques to raise children.

“Fun cancels out stress and brings everyone into the moment.” This is Davis’ recipe for a healthy relationship when it comes to raising our children. Everything changes when we become parents — the show Survivor shouldn’t take place on an island but a new parents’ home! It’s challenging not to lose yourself in the process, but with a few techniques, like being more playful and using your intuition, life can be more joyful and relaxing.

Discover the different ways men and women deal with stress, techniques of dealing with siblings fighting, and how to truly take care of yourself so you are able to be more present to the life you are living now.

This lecture blends techniques of improvisation, visualization, and affirmation. Parenting is a great lesson in letting go. You give birth, you let go. You nurse, you stop, you let go. They start school, you let go. They move out, you let go. That lesson of “letting go” is way easier with you in tacked. --

Comedy +

30-60-minute stand-up show. --

Testimonials

Kate’s presentation was a great lighthearted and comedic way of looking at the importance of connecting with those around us, during these truly unique times. She integrated storytelling and anecdotes to her presentation, making it a fast-paced one hour long panel on how to stay connected and keep things on track within an organization.

Kate is the complete opposite of boring. Her endless energy and positivity allowed her to easily engage her audience virtually and keep everyone involved and interested during the whole presentation, which we recognize is not easy to do! Prior to this event, she took the time to learn about our team and our interests in this topic and created a presentation that perfectly met and surpassed our expectations. Her passion about this topic really shined through in her stories and explanations of the importance of finding a way to connect with those around us and reflect on who we are.

Kate clearly loves what she does and her passion in her work as a comedian and a comic shined throughout the whole presentation. We would strongly recommend Kate Davis to anyone looking for a bright and energetic encounter about humour and connectivity in the workplace.

–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.
