Charmaine Hammond Topic Presentations

wellness at work - building resilient and positive mental health in the workplace

  • Keynote Presentation
  • Resilience is more than simply bouncing back after change, challenge, crisis, or adversity. Now, more than ever, the skill and character of resilience and positive mental health in the workplace is an essential quality for business and personal success. Increasing workplace challenges such as disputes, harassment complaints, safety issues, remote teams, absenteeism, multigenerational teams, and rapid change require resilience and mental wellness to cope and maintain productivity and working relationships. This session provides practical strategies and practices that can be implemented immediately to produce positive results.

communicating for success - keeping your cool in difficult conversations

  • Keynote Presentation
  • Despite how stressful it can be, conflict and miscommunication is a natural occurrence in workplaces. Having diverse teams, passionate staff, and a variety of professional backgrounds leads to great results but also sometimes conflict. Managers lose sleep and time over conflict, just as employees do. Yet, when miscommunication and conflict is well managed it can repair relationships, build new solutions to everyday problems, save time and money, create synergy and more. This seminar helps participants turn the most avoided conversations into courageous dialogues while keeping your cool.

teamwork by design - not by default

  • Keynote Presentation
  • Great teams don’t just happen… they are built by design, not default. When team members know and understand their working style, and the styles of others, they can more effectively and comfortably adapt their approach to communication, issue resolution and work together to build a team that stands the test of time. This presentation helps improve team performance, workplace relationships, and productivity.

leading through conflict

  • Keynote Presentation
  • Is your organization experiencing change or transition? Conflict (and unresolved conflict) often surfaces during periods of workplace change, which can complicate the change and create additional challenges to manage. Leading teams can be challenging at the best of times. Leading the conflict, change, and crisis is difficult without the right tools. Leaders spend more than 60% of their time dealing with conflict and employee issues in the workplace. How a leader leads through change and conflict has a significant influence on the results.

respect in the workplace… it’s everyone’s business

  • Keynote Presentation
  • Respectful workplaces are safer workplaces. Respectful and resilient workplaces have less turnover, healthier team relations, and produce results. This presentation will help build a respectful workplace by dealing with confrontation and bullying behaviours and will ultimately create a culture of kindness, resilience, and respect.

resolving workplace conflict

  • Keynote Presentation
  • Despite how stressful it can be, conflict is a natural occurrence in workplaces. Having diverse teams, passionate staff, and a variety of professional backgrounds leads to great results but also sometimes conflict. Managers lose sleep and time over conflict, just as employees do. Yet, when conflict is well managed it can repair relationships, build new solutions to everyday problems, save time and money, create synergy, and more. This seminar helps participants turn the most avoided conversations into courageous dialogues.

recognition and leadership

  • Keynote Presentation
  • Engagement and how employees that are engaged not only enhance the workplace culture but also add incredible value to the organization. Organizations that look at recognition from the perspective of engagement, purpose-driven work, organizational culture, and meaningful recognition are more likely to have less conflict, stronger collaboration, appreciation for one another and the role team members play in the overall organization and commitment to corporate values and objectives. Recognition is not about anniversary pins – it is about creating a culture where purpose and engagement thrive, individual talents and skills are tapped into and recognized, and where leadership creates the environment for people to grow with the company instead of their competitors. It is about creating the conditions (and supporting leaders in leading these conditions) that foster creativity, motivation, and resilience.

    Charmaine Hammond has worked with organizations from many sectors to build leaders at many levels, facilitate teams in working better together, and creating a working environment where appreciation and recognition are woven through the culture.  Charmaine was also contracted by the Government of Alberta to create, launch and implement the Minister’s Awards of Merit. She has also worked with municipalities and non-profit organizations on similar projects.


Charmaine has provided timely and effective conflict management training to managers at various levels in our organization. These are essentials skill for modern leaders. She is able to customize her presentations to suit specific needs and any size of group. In addition she provides concise support material and follow-up as needed. I highly recommend her services.

She went over so well at the event I decided to hire her to be our keynote speaker at our roadshow of National Payroll Week events in September 2018 and was very well received at those too.

Charmaine Hammond has recently delivered a presentation at the ASQ Vancouver 5th Annual Quality and Business Excellence Conference. She listened carefully to our needs and expectations and worked with us to prepare a presentation that was a perfect fit for the purpose and the theme of our event as well as the size and the composition of our audience. On the day of the conference, she awed us with her engaging manner of delivery, warm natural speaking style and her knowledge on the subject of Collaboration and Alignment Agreements for Business Results. I would not hesitate to invite or to recommend Charmaine to speak at any professional event again.

I recently invited Charmaine to speak for 20 minutes to about 50 business women of the eWomenNetwork Victoria, BC chapter on “The 3 C’s of Business Success: Collaboration, Communication & Conflict Resolution.” She was engaging, informative, fun and had our attendees scribbling their notes as quickly as possible. In the post-event survey results, attendees rated her as having excellent and above average stage presence, delivery and communication skills. They said, “…as the speaker was so impressive, I would have loved for her to have had more time…” and “she gets 10 out of 10 in my opinion.” They all also absolutely agreed or strongly agreed that her topic was relevant and beneficial to them. As the event organizer, I love it when the feedback is overwhelmingly positive and when the speaker stays on time! I also appreciated her promotion of our event before, during and after the event. If you are looking for an engaging, personable, fun and funny speaker with solid content for your next event, book Charmaine. You’ll be happy you did. Thanks Charmaine!
