Presentation Description & Topics
We are losing our minds and it’s due to Digital Dementia. It’s a term founded by German neuroscientist Manfred Spitzer to describe how overuse of digital technology is resulting in the breakdown of cognitive abilities. Not only are we losing our ability to communicate, remember important facts but’s it’s contributing to the global crisis of mental illness. The good news is that Digital Dementia can be prevented and even reversed, if taken seriously. Lisa will engage you with her story-telling abilities, demonstrate to you what is happening in society today and motivate you to take action immediately.
MAKE WELLNESS A PRIORITY

WORKPLACE FATIGUE – WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT
As a daughter of an immigrant worker in the mining industry Lisa has a strong connection with the effects of workplace hazards and how they impact the lives of workers and their families. In addition to environmental hazards in the workplace, workers can struggle with mental and physical challenges; and these challenges like workplace fatigue, bring an element of risk to the workplace.
The audience will be emotionally and physically involved in this presentation and be empowered to implement necessary changes personally and professionally to enjoy the benefits of better sleep and avoid the dangers of worker fatigue.
MENTAL HEALTH IN THE WORKPLACE
Mental Illness is currently a leading cause of disability globally. The workplace relies on healthy minded individuals, hence why improving the overall mental health of your employees is so important. Not everyone is comfortable talking about mental illness or completely understands it. The stigma of mental illness continues to plague society ad it’s time to break down barriers and talking more about it. Using recent stories of people suffering and research Lisa has uncovered, she will highlight the signs and symptoms of common mental illnesses and demonstrate how anyone can make an immediate difference to those suffering.

BRINGING HEALTH TO HEALTH AND SAFETY – WHAT’S YOUR PPE?
A retrospective look into what it really means to be “safe” on the job. Most health and safety policies and procedures are leaving out a key component which is the “mental health and wellness” of the employee. Lisa will demonstrate what a ‘fully-protective’ PPE looks like and what part of your protective equipment offers the best defence against a critical injury. Be prepared to be shocked, inspired, motivated and educated on the necessary future of Health and Safety.
FAIL FAST & PIVOT
Have you ever failed? It’s from these failures that we experience growth and resiliency. Resiliency is the ability to bounce back after an event that resulted in a negative experience.
The concept of “Fail Fast & Pivot” and it’s direct link to Resiliency will be explained through real-life stories and unusual situations. The concept of Resiliency Engineering will also be uncovered along with the the strategies on how to learn from failures with resilience and a mindful approach. The only Failure there is, is Failing to Learn, Lance Miller
