A PROVEN CHANGE MAKER

Heath shows audiences that trust and purpose — based on a genuine concern for others — are at the center of it all. When we're clear about why we're here, where we're going, who we serve and how we're getting there, people start to feel valued and fulfilled. As a consequence, we will naturally seek out ways to collaborate, execute and bring bold visions to reality.

As a professional speaker since 2008, Heath has delivered over 200 keynotes for some of Canada's most iconic brands — such as Canadian Tire, CN, Loblaw, McDonalds, and RBC — as well as for international companies and organizations, such as the United Nations. 

It all happens at the intersection of LEADERSHIP, TRUST, and INFLUENCE.

HEATH'S KEYNOTES & PROGRAMS

 

+ Interact with Influence

Skills, Tips & Behaviours to Build Trust, Gain Commitment and Inspire Change
Our ability to influence wisely and effectively – to get people to listen, to trust, and act on what we say – is arguably the most important skill for reaching our greatest potential. Though we face these challenging interpersonal situations every single day, rarely do we have the opportunity to sharpen these skills and see the difference between what works and what doesn’t. In this fast-paced presentation, we illustrate the most effective, scientifically-proven ways to influence and impact the people around you. Like all of Heath's talks, Interact with Influence is evidence-based and highly customized for each audience.

+ Trusted Relationships, Remarkable Results

How the Best Team Pulls Together.
Today’s workplaces can be full of cynicism and self-interest. With change and disruption as constants, it’s easy to forget that trust-based relationships are the foundation for achievement. Winning together means not wasting energy or effort: the best teams and organizations are the ones in which the people work together to confront the external threats. That way we get more done, with less stress, and actually have fun doing it. The most successful leaders and organizations, regardless of industry, are able to foster cooperation with a clearly-articulated purpose. The idea is that when we’re clear about who we serve, where we’re going, and how we’re getting there, the natural response is to trust, collaborate and bring bold visions to reality.

Through stories, research and basic science, Heath Slawner explains the three major shifts that will help foster a culture and create conditions for teams to be successful – where everyone can be at their natural best and where more and more people are inspired by the work they do. As you’ll hear, our very survival depends on it.

+ Start with WHY

Foster a Purpose-Driven Culture and Inspire Everyone to Action
Imagine a world where a vast majority of your people wake up inspired to go to work, feel valued while they're there, and return home and return home fulfilled by the work they do. That world starts with WHY. In today’s most successful organizations, leaders tap into the power of purpose by articulating a vision of the future and creating trust-based environments in which people naturally work together to achieve extraordinary things. Through stories, research and basic science, Heath shows audiences that the WHY is at the centre of it all. When we’re clear about why we’re here, where we’re going, who we serve, and how we’re getting there, people start to feel valued and fulfilled. As a consequence, we will naturally seek out ways to collaborate, execute and bring bold visions to reality.

+ The World's Most Trusted Advisors

How to Think, Act and Communicate like a Trusted Advisor
Heath Slawner explains that when people think, act, and communicate as a Trusted Advisor, they dramatically increase productivity, improve business results, and at the same time reduce stress. Whether working internally as a business partner, or externally with customers, clients and stakeholders, the impact is the same: at the end of the day, they can get more done, with less friction, and more satisfaction. Simply put, high-trust individuals and teams outperform low-trust organizations in every key business metric: profitability, revenue growth, employee engagement, customer service, retention, just to name a few. In this program, learn the key skills and mindset that help actualize our role as Trusted Advisors.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING...

CUSTOMIZATION AND PRE-EVENT RESEARCH

Many speakers say they develop custom content without ever interacting with your audience prior the conference or meeting. Heath makes a point of speaking with prospective audience members in advance to better understand their needs and perspectives. In addition to key stakeholder meetings (sponsors, business unit leaders and/or event planners), this means that no talk is ever the same twice, unless you request it. 

Pre-event research gives Heath insight into your organization, as well as a sense of the challenges that audience members are facing day-to-day. Spending time with your leadership team also builds trust and makes everyone feel confident that the content and approach are the perfect fit.

As an experienced facilitator, Heath can also deliver in a variety of formats, including longer interactive programs, breakouts sessions and experiential workshops. For more information, get in touch
