Burnout Buster – How to do your best work and still stay sane and healthy
As speakers we often need to carry on when we feel ill, we might have travelled a long way and be tired or jet-lagged. If we’re serious about our business we offer more value than the customer might be expecting, go the extra mile to prove ourselves as partners not just a guest. All of this can have a detrimental effect on our wellbeing if we’re not keeping an eye on how hard we push ourselves. We need a routine of self-care and a bucket of self awareness if we want to avoid total burnout. Prevention is best, second to that is the ability to spot and act upon the signs of burnout risk, before it’s too late. Too many good people – and it’s often the good ones because they’re determined to offer above average service – are convinced it won’t happen to them. And then they go ‘pop’. This session will help you stop before you go pop.
By experiencing Pam’s session you’ll find out what your particular burnout risks are, how to spot signs and symptoms and how to reduce your risk and maintain health and sanity.
Pam has been standing up speaking (and getting paid for it) for over 25 years, firstly on skills in childcare then internationally in the business world. In 1999 she set out on her own and became a Master Practitioner in NLP. In 2015, alongside one of her corporate customers, Pam received a European Health and Safety award for addressing stress in the workplace. As a result Pam spoke at the HSE national conference for HR managers to share how she got those results.
In 2015 Pam also became a Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association. She is often invited to speak on BBC radio and local television.

From classroom phobia to schools speaker
Do you want to or do you already speak in schools? Have you considered primary schools? Unsure where to start?
After two years of teaching in secondary schools, Frederika Roberts developed a phobia of schools and classrooms. She now speaks in schools, to children aged 8 to 18, in group sizes ranging from 20 to 200.
In this presentation, she will share what she has learnt on her journey from classroom phobia to schools speaker, with clear, practical take-aways you can implement in your speaking business (not only in schools).
• How to tweak content for different audiences
• How to help schools ‘find’ a budget to bring you in
• The difference between marketing to schools and marketing to businesses (and the differences between marketing to primary and secondary schools)
• Plus… bonus practical tips on protecting your voice
Based on her experiences as the mother of children with severe heart conditions, Frederika Roberts left a successful recruitment career to become a happiness and resilience speaker, author and Laughter Yoga Leader.
She has been interviewed on BBC Breakfast, ITV Calendar News, BBC and other radio stations all over the UK, and featured and quoted in various publications.
Frederika is also a guest blogger for Huffington Post UK and author of the book ‘Recipe for Happiness’. She is Co-Founder of the ‘RWS | Resilience Wellbeing Success’ programme and is currently studying towards an MSc in Applied Positive Psychology.
