- The Future Of Healthcare: Who cares for the carer?
We need to talk, about what the heck is going on in health care (aged-care, allied health etc).

- Resilience Builders: Why mental toughness and grit isn’t enough
To stay mentally well and psychologically safe by armouring up against the relentless challenges of modern life and work doesn’t work. It’s time to ditch the chain mail, redefine what we mean by stress and connect with what really helps us to T.H.R.I.V.E.

Dr Jenny was the keynote speaker for our Human Resources team event, and her presentation was definitely a winner with our audience of “people” people. Her ability to deliver a refreshingly interesting and humorous keynote about a topic as complex as the human brain, just kept us wanting more. A great sign of this, was the number of questions asked and answered. Dr Jenny’s emphasis on the importance of self-awareness and working on bettering our brain health was a profound message that allowed our audience to reflect on and consider how they could be more effective and productive in the workplace - but also on how this could have a significantly positive impact on their personal lives as well. Dr Jenny, thank you so much again, for stretching our mental muscles, ‘disrupting’ our mindsets and shifting our thinking around what it really means to be healthy.

Jenny is a fantastic facilitator and nothing short of inspiring. Jenny gave an engaging and thought-provoking keynote presentation to a group of skilled mature finance professionals with years of experience. They can be a challenging audience to say the least, but she completely captured them with her energy and practical advice. Jenny is one of the most engaging and interesting speakers I’ve had the pleasure of working with.
