Topics for Kevin Humphreys DSC
- NOBLE self-leadership
Experience the highs and lows of Kevin’s life as though you were there with him, then share the lessons of his journey. Kevin relays his experience of moving from fear to fearless and how his courageous journey to freedom is one we can take together. It’s recognising yourself as a worthy and noble goal, then taking actions to achieve it, despite the presence of fear.
Kevin discusses how it wasn’t the warzone that tore him apart – it was the workplace.
Research shows how a toxic workplace is just as debilitating as exposure to trauma, whilst being in a positive workplace is like receiving a mental health inoculation. Which will you contribute to and how will you know?
Walk away transformed, with tips and tools for immediate implementation. You’ll be ready to take action in your own life and to inspire the lives of others.
- Discipline - it's P.U.R.E. desire
Discipline. There’s plenty of it in the Army where Kevin spent two decades, but what he talks about here is the self-disciple required to succeed in navigating the highs and lows of life. Drawing upon his own professional and personal hard-fought experiences, Kevin
explores the topic of discipline in plain language.
Understand why it may not be your fault but it will always be your responsibility. Whether you’re an apprentice, pensioner or prize fighter this presentation applies equally to all.
Kevin not only motivates listeners for action, he also provides a practical framework to apply immediately.
- Keeping wings level and getting stuff done
In flying, if there’s a mishap of some kind, you’re trained to immediately regain wings level flight. ‘Wings Level’ represents the foundation of normal, controlled flight.
Fly with Kevin as he gives you a brief glimpse into his world when his wings weren’t level and learn what to implement personally and organizationally to build resilience – so you can keep wings level and get stuff done!
Explore the power of perspective and the debilitating effects of fatigue and burnout along with what to do about them. He delves into the illusion of what we think we can control in our lives and how much better our lives become when we seek to control only four things – get this right and your whole life will transform overnight.
As always, you’ll not only walk away with tips and tools for immediate implementation but the desire to make it happen for you and for others.

Kevin, Thank you. You smashed the stereotype of an individual with a mental illness. Having the courage to speak so openly as our keynote speaker and sharing your first-hand experience was compelling, candid and provocative. Everyone left not just informed, but transformed. You helped us understand that we need to be “doing it better” and that there is hope for recovery and the small things that we do on a daily basis can make a difference.

Kevin was an incredibly engaging speaker with a remarkable story to tell. Kevin’s telling of how he reached the top of his game in the military and then experiencing the depths of PTSD and depression, followed by working his way out from those dark days is motivating and inspirational. Kevin’s messages are powerful and important; his story is one you need to hear.
