Speech Topics

Bending Time | Why Time Management is Killing Your Productivity

How can I get everything done when it feels like there’s never enough time? We believe we should work harder/faster/better to get more done, but we’ve been thinking about it all wrong. In the pursuit of productivity we think our biggest struggle is we need more hours in the day. Unfortunately, though, there’s no way to gain more time–we all have the same 24 hours each day.

The truth is: There is no scarcity or abundance when it comes to time, which is why we need to change our relationship with it.

For far too long, productivity expert Tanya Dalton understood the feeling of racing the clock and chasing busy only to fall into bed exhausted, worrying that she still hadn’t done enough. It took a moment of personal crisis to transform her relationship with time and to stop being overwhelmed by her own to-do list.

Through shared stories, research and case studies Tanya offers a fresh glimpse into our psychology to understand the deep inner workings of our unique beliefs, behaviors and boundaries. Through this transformative journey, audience members will reclaim their time, reignite their purpose, and restore harmony to their lives. They’ll leave with the strategies and tools to make them truly productive.


  • Break through limiting beliefs about time to fully take advantage of every minute
  • Reveal the unique priorities for each individual and build a framework so those priorities become the focus
  • Identify and eliminate gaps in their day where they are working busy instead of productively
  • Gain actionable strategies for maximizing success while feeling like they have more time than ever before

Purposeful Productivity | The Secret to Creating Impact at Work and Beyond

Are you filling your calendar… or are you filling your soul? People often believe that their big purpose lies somewhere else–in another job or with a different career. They mistakenly think that purpose is out of reach or that they don’t have the ability to make the impact they desire.

We all want to feel like our work matters, that we are part of something much bigger than ourselves. The truth is: You don’t need to search for your purpose, it’s hidden in the work you already do.

After experiencing her own burnout, productivity expert Tanya Dalton realized she needed to stop trying to do more, and focus instead on doing what was most important.

She had fallen into the achievement trap of setting the wrong goals and chasing too many shiny objects. By connecting her purpose to her work, she scaled her business to 7 figures in just 18 months.

Recent studies verify that people who connect their work to a bigger purpose are significantly more satisfied, more innovative and more motivated.

In this powerful keynote, Tanya shares insightful tactics, case studies and entertaining stories that empower audience members to walk out of this experience feeling ready to take action with tools they can bring back to their teams, their families, and their lives.


  • Strengthen the connection between work and purpose to learn to love what you do in an entirely new way
  • Communicate stronger value during interactions with clients to build more meaningful relationships
  • Develop strategies to set the right goals and extinguish distractions that continually stand in the way
  • Unlock an attitude of contribution to train your brain to see opportunities instead of obstacles
