*SPECIAL VIRTUAL PROGRAM* YOU GOTTA LAUGH: A Pandemic Pick-Me-Up 

Looking for something to bring your group together online and give them a much-needed boost? In this entertaining and uplifting program, Susan delivers some observational humour about these times of isolation, physical distancing, and facing this “new normal”. Susan also shares a personal story that has left her with some ideas and perspectives about change (and adversity) that can help your group be more resilient as they navigate this time of uncertainty.

“We had about 180+ attendees and although their cameras were off, the chat was going crazy!
Susan was hilarious, engaging, and most importantly relatable. In a time of uncertainty we really have to make it a choice to be happy and Susan really made it easy that day.”
– Natasha Thompson, PepsiCo Foods Canada

YOU GOTTA LAUGH: Healing Stress With Humour

An hour packed full of laughs, Susan will give your group the lift they need by sharing some ways to see the lighter side of the changes and challenges we face both at work and in life.

“…a first-class presenter who made us all laugh our heads off while allowing us to learn how not to take ourselves too seriously. Susan is the perfect package!” – Mena Kelly, Ottawa Catholic School Board

YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS!

In the comedic style she is known for, Susan will have your group laughing at how we can take things too seriously and reveal the benefits of having a relaxed, positive mindset.

“Susan is an incredibly thought-provoking and hilarious speaker whose ideas and messages are incredibly easy to relate to. If you are looking for a top-notch speaker who is easy to work with and will make a profound impact on your group, look no further than Susan.” – Kyle Armstrong, McMaster University

YOUR NEW LENSES ARE READY FOR PICK UP: Seeing Adversity And Change In A New “Light”

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 can create stress and offer some shifts in perspective that can boost our mood, increase our resiliency, and nurture our mental health.

*a version of this program that focuses solely on the topic of change is also available

“Susan’s energy is infectious! Susan does a really great job of breaking down big concepts into small nuggets that you can use to help you in your daily life. Susan will make you laugh from your belly and has a way of warming your heart and seeing the lighter side of life.” – Amy Ly, Ontario Hospital Association

THE MENTAL HEALTH MAKE-OVER: How Depression Helped Me Lighten Up

A program that both entertains and inspires, Susan shares how depression (and anxiety) once led her to quit stand-up comedy and what she has learned about nurturing strong mental health.

“There are very few individuals who can capture an audience, entertain, motivate and offer hope. Her words illustrated vivid imagery that the audience related to on a personal level and will be talking and laughing about for months to come.” – Pam Boniferro, Peel District Catholic School Board

THE LAST LAUGH

This program is 100% pure PG-rated corporate-friendly stand-up comedy! Susan will send your group off energized, uplifted, and seeing the lighter side of life!

“Susan’s upbeat, laughter-filled presentation ended the conference on a high note…” – Lina Di Carlo, Occupational Health Nurses Association
