    fixing dinner - why making dinner can save your life (and how to make it easier)

    • Keynote Presentation
    • Now, more than ever, people are struggling to find time, energy and inspiration to make dinner. This stress has a big impact on their happiness in life and productivity at work. But dinner can actually be a source of energy and joy….as long as it’s uncomplicated.  Fixing Dinner is a motivating, optimistic and fun keynote that focuses on de-stressing dinner so it can become the best part of your day.

      It is designed to inspire people to cook at home so they can reap the emotional, physical, financial, environmental and family relationship benefits. The presentation answers two simple and equally important questions:  What roadblocks prevent regular people from making dinner every day? And what can we do about it?  Through research and extensive experience leading the Fixing Dinner course to hundreds of people, Claire has come up with an answer to both questions.

      Audience takeaways:

      • Clarity on why making dinner is the most important thing we can do for ourselves and our
        families, but also why it can often feel like such a struggle.
      • Practical, effective tools that start de-stressing dinner immediately.
      • Quick wins with Claire’s simple strategies like “The Peaceful Dinner Table Challenge”, the “Home
        Cook Quiz” and more.
