Deri Latimer Topic Presentations

the neuroscience of leadership

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop Session
  • Every moment of every day, your brain is ‘at work’. It impacts your ability to overcome distractions, manage your emotions, and create the kinds of relationships that maximize your results. It is the very source of your leadership strength, just as it is of life itself.

    The mindful leader of today is able to see clearly what is present, respond with creativity rather than reactivity, and influence people around them in a positive way. They are resilient, emotionally aware, and grounded in their purpose. In this dynamic keynote, Deri Latimer will explore what the science of the brain is teaching us about the art of leading people. It includes information on developing more opportunities for insight in an environment of distraction and keeping calm and clear under personal and organizational pressure.

the resilient mindset

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop Session
  • Today’s dynamic, complex workplaces (and life places) require that we adjust rapidly and effectively to constant change. Personal resilience is a tool that each of us can develop to not only accept and cope with current realities but embrace and commit to the changes required by those realities… with energy! During this session, we will explore useful strategies for you to implement immediately into your life.

    Some of the strategies include identifying personal ‘distress’ signals that can inhibit performance and using simple strategies for maintaining personal alignment. Deri Latimer also covers how to assume more control and influence over your work experience by making choices that work for you and how to turn workplace pressure into energy for top performance.

positive mental health ‘at work’

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop Session
  • Never has been a more critical time for attending to your mental health – personally and organizationally! Skyrocketing healthcare costs, absenteeism rates, and stress impact people, productivity, and profit potential.

    We can develop habits for positive mental health and incorporate simple practices into our everyday lives to significantly impact our individual and corporate wellness and success. You can develop habits for positive mental health and incorporate simple exercises into your daily life to dramatically impact your personal and corporate wellness and success.

    In this keynote, Deri Latimer will speak about a model for positive mental health practice that will help attendees engage in positive emotion. She will discuss developing positive and productive work habits and how to re-frame negative situations.

    Deri Latimer provides simple strategies to help you be happier and more productive and build supportive relationships. She gives insight into how to positively impact your workplace culture and facilitate positive change.

curious, caring, connected - engaging in a conversation about mental health

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop Session
  • Your role as a manager or business owner is multi-dimensional. In addition to your day-to-day responsibilities, your success as a manager depends on your ability to spot the subtleties in staff behaviour that can impact their ability to perform their duties.

    More and more, staff may experience challenges with their mental health. What you notice and what you do can make all the difference in connecting people with the support they require.

    In this presentation, Deri Latimer will speak about how to spot the signs of a potential mental health challenge and initiate a conversation about it. How to take action to ensure the health and well-being of your staff and encourage positive mental health habits

mindful leadership - focus, purpose, and empathy

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop Session
  • Within each of us is the potential to lead with excellence; to see clearly what is present, to respond with creativity and innovation rather than reactivity, to bring compassion to each decision and encounter, and to influence people around us in a positive way.

    Whatever else may be going on, great leaders remain true to themselves, and that authenticity provides them with an essential aura of trustworthiness. Their people, colleagues, customers, and other stakeholders know where they stand with them.

    Today’s transformative leaders are able to engage and energize the resources around them to build a better future by learning to be more ‘present’! In this enlightening experience, Deri Latimer will explore the core elements of Mindful Leadership.

mindset - the psychology of motivation and success

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop Session
  • Mindset is a mental attitude that determines how you interpret and respond to various situations in your life. It affects everything from your persistence and determination in facing challenges and setbacks to your openness to feedback and your resilience to change.

    The mindset that is reinforced and encouraged in your company culture will impact the innovation, collaboration, and commitment of yourself and your team. As leaders and employees, maintaining a culture of learning and innovation may be the critical factor that allows your organization to outdistance the competition. Equally as compelling, that same culture will impact the health and well-being of the people who are responsible for achieving the results needed for success.

    In this energizing keynote, we will explore how mindset can positively impact performance, innovation, diversity, and inclusion—strategies to build new neuropathways for growth; within yourself and your team. Learning, hard work, and resilience are core pillars of organizational success.

you, me, we - co-creating a positive, productive and prosperous team

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop Session
  • The evidence about the power of teams is clear and consistent: individuals who work in a team culture are more productive, more resilient to change, more engaged, and more fulfilled than those who do not.

    The benefits to the organization (and its clients) are synergistic: better results, at a better time, with better relationships! Although the data is clear, the experience of the ‘team’ can be elusive. Too many people still report that their work experience does not ‘feel’ like a team. Often that is because we are not clear about the role we all play in creating the team.

    This presentation offers practical strategies and insights to cultivate a more collaborative approach to internal and external customer service, including clarifying the experience of what it really means to be a team and understanding the critical ingredients for a healthy TEAM.


Your workshop on Team Dynamics was truly worthwhile and rewarding, as well as interactive and fun. You managed to successfully bring substance and meaning to a process for understanding the dynamics of personality and behavior in the workplace.

I believe the workshop, in helping staff to better understand our differences and how to make the most of them, was extremely useful in terms of team building and effective communication. Your delivery is superb!

Learned that we as individuals are in full control of our behaviour – starting at our thought process, believing what we think that’s positive, taking the positive out of everything, making the choice to be what we want to be, it’s a decision.
