A knowledgeable, warm and down-to-earth presenter, who reaches business audiences with a blend of content and humour, Nina’s energetic, fun, informative style, and insightful perspectives, will help make this year’s luncheon event an educational, inspirational, entertaining and long-to-be-remembered positive experience.

Balance or Burnout?

Don’t wait to be rescued – save yourself!

It’s up to you to find balance. No one else has control over your thoughts, plans and dreams.
Is it stressful? You bet! It’s hard work finding balance—sometimes it requires that we learn to say ‘no’ to ourselves and others, find out where our limits really lie, and practicing the skills needed to gain, and more importantly, maintain this delicate state of balance. It must be applied both to our personal and working life in order to be successful.
