The Secret Sauce: Thriving in Times of Change +

This high energy and interactive keynote presentation confronts the challenges posed by the accelerating pace of change in our personal and professional lives. Meg offers an inspirational message while  sharing her ideas on how we can use humor, passion and resilience to enhance communication, find more balance and sustain personal growth even when we are pushed to our limits.

Meg explores ideas about navigating change and dealing with life’s ever present stresses, emphasizing the important role that humor and communication style play in helping us perform at our best. She delves into the topic of emotional intelligence by offering insights on how our brain’s default response wiring can hijack our thoughts and perceptions and make us less effective than we might otherwise be in our interactions with others.

Using experiences from her career as an O.R. nurse, and now as a thought leader on mindfulness and resilience, Meg will explore the key elements of a successful conversation and demonstrate that by choosing to shift our perspective – and distinguishing between left brain and right brain thought patterns – we can ‘rewire’ our thought patterns thus leading us to stronger relationships with the people in our lives.

This presentation will entertain, inspire and leave audience members with ideas to help realize improvements in health, self-awareness and relationships at work and at home.

Session Objectives:

  • Learn about the HPR Sauce – Humor, Passion and Resilience to manage change and thrive personally and professionally.
  • Gain greater control over how we react in moments of difficulty; reinforce the idea that we have the ability to ‘Shift our Perspective’ to fend off negative emotions and thought loops.
  • Learn Meg’s Mini-Mindfulness Break technique for giving our ‘Brain a Boost’ and to be more present in our interactions with others.
  • Offer strategies to help improve personal resilience so that we are better able to manage change and maintain a positive mindset; and,
  • Share laughter and positive energy together! --

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 humorous exploration of life and times in the pandemic. 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 message will speak to everyone in the room- whether they are just launching their career, or they are leading the organization through times of major change. Her insights on using humor and self-awareness as tools for bolstering resilience demonstrate how small changes in routine can make a big difference in our lives. --

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

Meg will share ideas and best practices that she has adopted using her ‘Key Elements of Life’ model to demonstrate how the choices we make about nutrition, exercise and sleep all play a vital role in helping us build our resilience and maintain a positive mindset. She will bring home the message of how important it is to take time for ourselves each day so that we find the energy and inspiration to perform to the best of our abilities, no matter what demands are being placed upon us.

Meg will also delve into the subject of emotional intelligence and explore how our emotions, and our response patterns in the face of stress can serve to make us less effective than we might otherwise be in our daily interactions with others. Using experiences from her career as an O.R. nurse, and now as a thought leader on mindfulness and resilience, Meg demonstrates how we can break free of our usual behavior patterns leading us to healthier and stronger relationships with the people we work with and those who we serve.

She will also explore how stereotyping can limit us and make us less effective in our interactions with others.

K&M Productions and Meg Soper have been wonderful to work with. I cannot say enough nice things about Meg Soper! She is fabulous, funny and it was marvelous to watch how she connected with the audience and captured their attention so quickly. She was put in a very tough spot however you would never have known it. The audience loved her "blow, after blow, after blow, after blow" jokes, stories, facial and body expressions. People described her as a 'female Jim Carey' and truly she is in the way she performs on stage. I continue to receive complement after complement about her performance "her message was so relevant and she was so funny at the same time", "a perfect fit for this year's theme", and "how did you find her?", "how perfect was Meg", "OMG Meg is hilarious". I could go on and on but I hope this gives you a sense of how the delegates received her. It was quite honestly shocking how she took to the stage and put on a show! Our entire team were in awe! Meg was a delight to work with. She showed up one hundred percent in peak attitude and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She does her homework and delivers all that her promotional information states. We cannot recommend her enough. Thank you again!
