Angela's Keynotes

Mindful Performance: Lower Your Stress to Perform At Your Best ™

When action is strategically informed by a mindful, intentional focus, you and your organization are better able to cut through the noise and clutter to enjoy peak performance. Mindful Performance (MP) makes it possible to find the calm in the chaos. When leadership and employees reduce their stress levels and are healthier and happier, this directly impacts the bottom line of the organization. We call this the “return on mindfulness” (ROM).

This keynote is excellent for organizations and conferences.

“The Cox Enterprises’ leadership program participants greatly benefitted from Angela’s facilitation on emotional intelligence and mindfulness. Her approach was welcoming, sincere and relatable. Based off feedback from the participants Angela provided useful actionable ways to incorporate their learnings every day.”

Compassionate Cancer Care

As a psychotherapist with a Master’s Degree in Counseling, I have worked in the integrative oncology field for over a decade as a clinical facilitator and program developer. In 2006, I founded the Mindfulness Program at Chapman Cancer Wellness Piedmont Healthcare and have delivered numerous talks to cancer patients and their families, physicians, oncologists, oncology social workers, and more. I have also been a caregiver to my father who was diagnosed with cancer in 2006.

In these engaging, soulful, and dynamic talks, participants leave feeling refreshed, validated, and renewed. Through storytelling, humor, experiential activities, and easy to understand research applications, I customize my talks as an edu-tainer, depending on the theme of the event and the needs of the audience.

This keynote is a good fit for keynotes, survivorship celebration events, conferences, educational seminars (for patients or providers), panel discussions, and breakout sessions.
