More Human, More Often: How to Connect After a Pandemic +

A silent pandemic was brewing years before the one we all know today, and yet it was Covid that helped us finally see it.  For decades the world has faced a crisis in human connection, and it’s been the root cause of every challenge faced by humanity.  On a macro level, it has created international conflicts, national divisiveness and community breakdown.  Individually, our disconnection from each other is behind a wide range of physical and mental ailments including chronic pain, anxiety, depression, greater stress and so much more.  Governments, companies and organizations can no longer ignore the reality that without human connection, we can survive, but we will never truly thrive.

Stuart Knight has over twenty-five years experience travelling the world teaching audiences about the power behind meaningful human connection.  In his latest keynote, he provides a scientifically backed “wake up call” for people ready to acknowledge the truth that without each other, we have nothing. In this hilarious, entertaining and deeply thought provoking presentation, Stuart Knight unveils the elephant in the room we all knew was there, but didn’t know how to see.  Incorporating meaningful human connection into your culture, and individual lives, is the change the world has been waiting for! --

The Choice: Five Decisions All Leaders Make During A Crisis +

It’s not about how you are coping, but rather how you are “coviding” during the pandemic.  Let’s face it, some companies will “covid” better than others, and the ones who inspire their leaders to make powerful decisions will come out on top.  During this presentation, Stuart takes your team through the five decisions they have to make in order to thrive during a crisis.


During challenging times it’s easy to lose sight of what gets you out of bed in the morning and even easier to focus your attention on the negative.  If there was ever a moment to pause and remind yourself of the direct impact you have on others, it’s during chaotic times.  Stuart will help your team remember what matters the most and to let that feeling motivate and guide them through the fog.


Ask any expert on fear and they will tell you the same thing.  Most of it is made up and the rest of it can be channelled into something great.  Unfortunately, not everyone seems to get that, and this is where Stuart comes in.  He will help your team identify the biggest fears, concerns and worries that are causing stress and anxiety and will show them how to redirect that energy into a pretty awesome life force.


In the midst of uncertainty, organizations often make the mistake of only relying on practices that have been tried, tested and true.  While it’s important to make calculated decisions during unsure times, it’s just as critical to consider the questions no one is thinking to ask.  Doing so will lead you to an unexpected reinvention of ideas that will separate you from the pack.

Thicker Skin

True leaders know that it’s not about avoiding the calamity, but rather embracing it as the incredible opportunity that it is.  Being knocked down in life is a beautiful moment that most people miss because they focus their attention on the collateral damage from the explosion and not the lesson to be learned.  Stuart will teach your team how to look past the smoke and use the pain of any experience as a chance to develop the thicker skin you need to be a great leader.

Aiming for the Impossible

Anyone can aim for the stars when the stars are aligned, but it’s a much harder thing to do when the rules of the game have changed.  Since the history of time it has always been the excitement of a better future that has driven people to create great change.  It is for this reason that Stuart will inspire your team to set goals that seem a little crazy today, but will give them an exciting tomorrow to look forward to and strive for. --

Four Conversations for Success +

Anyone can talk business.  When was the last time you talked life? How do you feel when the guy behind the counter remembers your name?  Why do people work hard for some managers and not others? Do your clients look forward to seeing you? What do you know about your customers that your competition doesn’t? Do you see them?  They’re everywhere. That’s right, they are called people and if you don’t really know them, you’re just another company trying to survive. (Also offered as a workshop) --

The Choice: 5 Decisions All Winners Make +

Do you know why some companies are more successful than others? Here’s a hint. It has nothing to do with their people waking up earlier, working harder or having prestigious degrees. They simply have leaders who make five decisions every single day. Do you know what they are? Don’t worry, Stuart Knight does, and he’ll inspire your team to make them. Warning: This will lead you to greater success. (Also offered as a workshop) --

Stuart Knight has an uncanny ability to connect with his audience. At one moment you are laughing hysterically, and the next moment you are on the edge of your seat as he shares profound insights into the world we live in.

Stuart is an amazing talent – inspirational, motivational, wickedly creative, and best of all funny! I highly recommend his shows or corporate speaking engagements to everyone or anyone.


–Redux Media

I received GREAT feedback on your session. The majority of the delegates have been coming to this for over 10 years and many people told me personally you were the best speaker we have ever had.

–Canadian Employee Relocation Council

We just had Stuart Knight as our opening keynote for a leadership retreat and he was the highlight of the conference.  The audience loved his high energy, humor and relevant messages that they use every day in their businesses.  He was a joy to work with and took the time to make the talk personalized to our industry.  I would recommend Stuart to any organization ready to teach their team to how to build better relationships!

–Eye Recommend

Stuart’s presentations are a combination of entertainment, education, inspiration and fun. They provide a unique environment for individuals to maximize their inter-connections thus promoting ideas and alliances, while generating real momentum within the group.


Stuart Knight had the challenge, at our national conference, of engaging an audience of franchisees and head office staff who have ‘heard it all before’ in terms of motivational speakers.  He knocked it out of the park.  Stuart’s command of the stage, his masterful skills as a moderator and his entertaining style of delivery compelled people to see things in new ways — and to think about and experience the art of interaction and the power of meaningful conversation as critical success factors in their business and personal lives.  I would highly recommend Stuart as a keynote speaker for anyone looking to engage attendees, entertain and offer them actionable insights for living a fuller and richer life.
