Susan Stewart

Motivational Humourist & Speaker;
The Lighter Side of Work & Life


Nov. 18, 2020: Are you looking to bring your group together online to celebrate the holiday season? In this entertaining program, Susan Stewart provides a comical review of 2020 as she talks about working at home, physical distancing, and the perks to wearing a mask in public. Susan will give your group the gift of laughter and share some ways to see the lighter side of life in these challenging times.

Speaker and motivational humourist Susan Stewart will give your group the lift they need. Susan helps people see the lighter side of life to lower stress, nurture strong mental health, and be resilient in the face of adversity and uncertainty. Susan also leaves everyone more uplifted and inspired to meet their challenges with a positive outlook, and of course, a sense of humour. +

Professionally speaking, Susan has taken a winding road. After earning a Theatre Arts degree from the University of Waterloo, Susan moved to Toronto to pursue a career in stand-up comedy. A few years into her comedy career, Susan started to battle depression and anxiety which eventually led her to quit the "biz". When Susan got back on her feet, she wanted to get a "real job" and see how the other half lived. Thanks to a whole lot of serendipity and a wee bit of nepotism, Susan landed a job in a Human Resources office in the Ontario Government.

About a year into her HR career, Susan was asked to create and deliver a comical presentation about mental health at an upcoming professional development conference. Susan’s presentation was a smash-hit and before she knew it, she was touring around the Ontario Government delivering her comical presentation about mental health at other events and conferences. In 2008, Susan took the leap of faith and left her HR career to deliver comical presentations about mental health full time.

For the past 12 years, Susan has been touring around North America making audiences laugh and sharing ways to meet the challenges of work and life with a positive outlook, and of course, a sense of humour.

Stewart is the author of Reaching The Laugh Resort: Why The Journey To Remembering Who You (Really) Are Is Worth The Jet Lag, Your New Lenses Are Ready For Pick Up: A Guide To Seeing The Lighter Side Of Life, and You Gotta Laugh: Wit And Wisdom About Not Taking Life (Or Yourself) Too Seriously. --

YOUR NEW LENSES ARE READY FOR PICK UP: Seeing Adversity & Change In A New Light +

As we navigate our new reality during this unprecedented time, Susan will give your group a lift with a program that both entertains and inspires. This program examines our freedom of choice. We are always free to choose how we want to perceive, interpret, and respond to the external world. As scientific research has proven, 90% of our experience (such as stress or happiness) is based on how we process our circumstances. The lenses through which we view things (and the narrative we tell ourselves) almost entirely shapes our reality and profoundly determines our potential to “synthesize” happiness in the face of adversity or uncertainty. In her signature comedic style, Susan will point out some “annoying features” of the brain that detract from our sense of contentment and offer some shifts in perspective that can boost our mood and increase our resilience.

This virtual presentation, via Zoom, runs 45-60 minutes, plus Q&A. Length is customizable to suit your needs. --
