In addition to working one on one with individuals to unearth life force (inquire about openings as I work only with a handful of people at a time), I provide presentations from 20-60 minute keynotes to more in-depth talks and all-day workshops that are specifically designed to meet your vision. I have also facilitated conferences and hosted live-streamed events such as the TEDx.


My speeches often relate to topics within positive psychology as well as resilience, self-mastery, peak performance, excellence in leadership, and creating psychological safety through everyday interactions to unlock innovation and human potential. Recently, I have been sharing ideas about cultivating beneficial sisu in groups and within ourselves.

I also offer training in public speaking and work with individuals and teams to help them navigate times of insecurity. I base my speeches, that are an interplay of research and stories rooted in real life, in the wisdom I have accumulated through years of researching the human experience of exceeding ourselves in times of great adversity, as well as in my personal transformational journey of recreating myself spiritually, intellectually and physically. The talks are also informed by my Ph.D. research work on sisu and the related recent 2400km/50 day Sisu Not Silence running and cycling expedition across New Zealand, as well as the time I have spent in Northern China and Asia learning martial arts and Eastern philosophy.


If these ideas resonate, send me a note and we'll explore co-creating upward spirals of elevation, inspiration, and action-mindedness. I also work with organizations more personally to help them integrate sisu into their value system.


I look forward to hearing from you!
