Susan Stewart

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

Bio

Motivational humourist Susan Stewart blends the wit and wisdom she’s known for with powerful messages about not taking life too seriously — especially in times of adversity and uncertainty. In her stand-up comedy style, Stewart shares ways to see the lighter side of life leaving her audiences uplifted and equipped to meet their challenges with a positive outlook, and, of course, a sense of humour.

Professionally, Stewart has taken a winding road. After earning a degree in theatre arts from the University of Waterloo, she began performing stand-up comedy in Toronto. Three years into her comedy career, Stewart began battling depression and anxiety, which eventually led her to quit performing. When she got back on her feet, she wanted to know “how the other half lived” and transitioned into the world of human resources as an organizational learning and development consultant with the Ontario government.

A year into her new HR career, Stewart was asked to create and deliver a comical presentation about wellness for an upcoming staff professional development conference. Her presentation was a smash-hit and she eventually left her HR career to return to the stage full-time and use her comedic powers for good. For the past decade, Stewart has been making audiences laugh while delivering messages about resiliency, stress relief, and nurturing strong mental health.

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.

Stewart’s podcast, “Still a Hot Mess”, and comedy album, Relentless, are available on Spotify and iTunes.

Great repetition of take aways and left everyone leaving on a high. Susan was the PERFECT choice to close our conference – she kept it light, and moving, with great strategies to use. I couldn’t be happier.
