Inspiring Audiences with Engaging Talks

I’m an experienced speaker, offering energetic, insightful and entertaining talks that focus on how leaders and teams can thrive.

In my keynotes, I blend the latest research with my own personal experience from leading teams and working in the corporate sector for a decade.

Audiences walk away from my talks inspired and ready to take action with practical and evidence-backed ways to boost their results, and more.


My Keynote Topics

I build connection, rapport and understanding of my clients, and tailor my Keynotes to their needs and goals so they are relevant and impactful for the audience. Below are some of my most popular topics.



With market changes, client uncertainty, and increased pressure, very few people are at the top of their game. Yet despite the challenges that exist, it is possible to thrive when you know how. Research has uncovered the factors that lead to greater performance in teams and better wellbeing, engagement and resilience too.



With pressure mounting, and stress and burnout on the rise, there’s never been a more critical time for optimism. In this presentation, you will realise why optimism is not just good but great for us both professionally and personally. And the best news is that optimism can be learned.



Knockbacks and setbacks are common for everyone. So it’s imperative that we’re equipped with the strategies to be able to cope positively with the continued uncertainty, volatility and change currently being faced. But we can go one step further, and emerge stronger and better from the challenges thrown at us. So we‘re tougher in the face of hurdles going forward.



Throughout our days, we're constantly surrounded by negativity, which impedes our ability to thrive so we need to shift our focus to the positive. In this presentation, you will build an understanding of how positive emotions grow our most valuable resources including resilience and wellbeing, and the tiny ways you can pump up the positivity in your day.



We’ve all heard the saying ‘play to your strengths’ before. But few of us are truly adopting this strategy. In this presentation, you will uncover what your strengths are and how they can be better leveraged so you can be more confident, motivated and energised, and at your best every day.

We engaged Anna to support our Sales Conference as her focus on Optimism was highly desired. Feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive, both in the way that Anna delivered the sessions through her facilitation, as well as the content covered. A truly engaging experience for our team, and we look forward to working with Anna again in the future.

Puzzle Partners engaged Anna to facilitate a workshop for us during our annual team gathering. We have recently been through a significant period of growth and our objective for the session was to establish strong team connections building on the strengths of our experienced puzzlers and incorporating the energy, enthusiasm and talent of our new starters. Anna did a wonderful job of helping us connect as a team, understand our individual strengths and identify how we could use these to achieve amazing outcomes for the team. She has a warm friendly style and we all came away feeling energised, connected and optimistic about the future.

I’m really glad I organised a session with Anna on Thriving Sales Teams. It’s been a tough time for most of us, so it was good for the team to see that they aren’t the only ones finding it difficult at times, and then to hear some tips on what they can do to recover and get back to thriving. Anna has a very engaging style, and moved through the material at a pace that really suited us.

Head of Intermediary

T.Rowe Price Australia

“Unlike other trainers / facilitators that we have experienced in the past, our team connected immediately with Anna. We engaged Anna for Masterclasses over a series of months, and whilst Positive Psychology is the trump card to her expertise, Anna’s got an extraordinary ability to listen to our team members when they felt the need to speak out about their challenges. 14 months later and our team still talks about Anna and the positive influence she had on us. I know most of our team still use one or two of Anna’s strategies every day, and these have been critical for us during this uncertain time. I would be pleased to recommend Anna to any business who have team culture and performance at the forefront of their business plan.”

Senior Director


Anna is a passionate and engaging positive psychology and wellbeing leader, who facilitated a workshop series for Russell Kennedy over three months. Amidst a particularly challenging year, practical and easy- to-implement wellbeing strategies were discussed with staff to add to their toolkit and to make positive change in their own personal and professional lives.

People & Culture Advisor

Anna has the great ability to take complicated concepts and distil them down into ‘real world’ understanding. Her genuine care for the people that she teaches and the subject matter really shines through. If you are committed to continual personal learning, Anna has a lot to teach you.


Tribeca Financial

Anna is a dedicated and professional speaker, who communicates at a personal level. She’s always enthusiastic, making subject matter come to life, whilst delivering with a calming approach to the topic at hand. A mix of tools and movement makes her presentations engaging.

State Manager


Anna came and spoke to our team about some strategies to help us overcome challenges in the workplace and thrive in the environment we work in. All her work was evidence and research based and ranged from Resilience, Optimism and Wellbeing. It was an interactive and enjoyable workshop that the team felt empowered by and came away with tools that they will be able to integrate into their personal and professional lives. Would highly recommend for any business looking to support their employees and get them working in a positive environment.


Belle Property

Anna’s Building Thriving Teams workshop came at a critical time for our business as we rebounded out of a challenging few years. Our senior leadership drew important skills from the workshop with Anna and challenged the way we approached situations. The following weeks and months, our senior leadership elevated their energy and optimism which reflected in positive outcomes for all our business. Anna connected well with the broad range of participants with her engaging and insightful sessions.

General Manager


We engaged Anna for number of workshops focusing on resilience and wellbeing. Anna’s workshops provided a fantastic combination of contemporary theory and practical application. As a result of this work, we engaged Anna to deliver a 3 month Strengths Based Leadership Program. This intensive program was designed for high performing managers and focused on implementing a strengths approach to leadership practice. Anna was able to provide a program rich in evidenced based content that was highly relevant and immediately applicable. Feedback from the program has been overwhelmingly positive, and improvements in the participants’ leadership practice have been noticeable. It is refreshing to engage with a facilitator who actually understands the importance of performance within an organisational context, and is then able to provide people with the skills to improve their own performance.

Anna was a delight to deal with – understanding exactly what we needed to support the end delivery goal for our business unit, which was a strengths-based focus to our Individual Development Plans. The feedback from colleagues post the sessions have been extremely positive as the knowledge and messages Anna left us all with were uplifting and powerful.

Anna’s ‘The Strengths Shift’ Masterclass was a game changer for me – it challenged my ideas of self-improvement, highlighted the need to focus on other people’s strengths and gave me some really practical tips on how to manage my work and team to bring more joy into our days! Anna is a really engaging facilitator, the session was a great mix of theory, activities and discussion. I’d highly recommend!

Anna recently ran a ‘Wellbeing & You’ session with my team at ANZ, and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Her delivery style resonated with my team and her practical tips have already been put into practice. Anna has an authentic presence and was able to pitch the messaging at just the right level – and I’ve already recommend her to peers!

Anna provided a really engaging and stimulating conversation with our team. I received really good feedback from the team on Anna’s knowledgeable yet entertaining style. It prompted a really good discussion about how the team was travelling, our core values and how to make the best of a difficult situation. It was just the tonic our team needed at this time.
