Speech Topics

The Science of Happiness

Ignite Your Spark & Unleash Your Potential

When you hear the terms “happiness” and “well-being,” what do you think of? In this keynote, Kim uses storytelling and science to talk about how happiness is more than just a feeling and how it can have a tremendous effect on performance.

With an energy that’s both captivating and down-to-earth, Kim shares eye-opening research and simple, actionable steps for how we can reprogram our brains to become more fulfilled and positive in our personal and professional lives.

Be prepared to laugh and learn along with your audience as Kim motivates and entertains with her real-talk humor and inspirational teaching.

Radical Wellness

The Self-Care Nobody’s Talking About

Self-care is an overused phrase that doesn’t get to the heart of what educators are facing each day. They are told to practice “self-care” when they are already drowning in a sea of mental and physical fatigue and exhaustion. It’s time to replace the phrase “self-care” with Radical Wellness.

It’s radical because it’s uncomfortable and messy, and it requires us to examine our lives from the inside out, including taking a step back and making some much-needed moves in our lives. It is not a random, long-overdue pampering with a facial or a walk in the park.

Remembering Your Why

Reclaim Your Purpose & Ignite Your Passion

As we navigate the heavy toll that the pandemic has taken on both student progress and teacher morale, it’s time to give teachers a reason to find joy and purpose in their profession again.

In this keynote, Kim recalls her experiences as a classroom teacher, sharing a heartfelt story that gave her new meaning for what it meant to be an educator. Her open and honest approach will make your staff feel affirmed and rejuvenated, as she acknowledges the real-life challenges teachers are facing right now and provides a fresh perspective for the school year ahead.

The Science of Growth Mindset

Change Your Thoughts To Increase Your Success

In this keynote, Kim shares how cultivating a growth mindset can shift the way we think about our current circumstances and instead embrace challenges and obstacles as a means to growth.

Mindsets are a set of beliefs that affect how we think about our abilities, how we behave, and the actions we take toward our goals. When we take intentional steps to prioritize a growth mindset in the workplace, we impact the school culture and help build growth mindset habits that fuel educators’ success.

Your audience will walk away with tools to evaluate their beliefs so that they can face obstacles with a more productive approach, developing and learning new skills in the process with a focus on improvement.

A Mission To Make The System Work For All

Through this talk, Kim’s mission is to empower educators, parents, and policymakers with data, direction, and practical educational strategies to better equip the 21st-century learner for the future they will lead.
