Speaker

Wearing my Speaking Hat, I engage my audiences using real life stories. I challenge them to look at what’s possible, rather than dwelling on the opposite.

My workshops cover a range of topics. They’re designed to encourage audiences to consider what they allow into their minds and the impact that may have. By making good choices when life throws a curve ball, the outcome can be more favourable.

When you follow your passion, the sky’s the limit …

What Others Say ...

Gail Miller is a brilliant story teller. Her manner is engaging and the delivery is professional, well-paced and targeted perfectly.

 

Gail’s recent author talk at Burnside Library was a complete success.

 

She shared a personal journey together with some of her resilience tools that left the audience feeling motivated and empowered; A lovely way to celebrate National Seniors Day.

I really enjoyed your incredible speech at the Professional Speakers of Australia SA event last Tuesday.

 

You were engaging, and informative, funny and poignant, and I think everyone, including me, really loved your message “You are what you Think & Say.”

 

I would not hesitate to recommend you as a speaker for other people’s events.

 

Kind regards,

Gail’s presentation on behalf of the Marion Library Service on the Aged Care process as outlined in her book ‘5 Easy Ways to Solve the Aged Care Puzzle’ was informative and professional.

 

It enabled our community to access information that many of them were unaware of and help them find resources to assist them in helping their loved ones enter the Aged Care system.

Workshop Facilitator

As a workshop facilitator I’m able to adjust my programs to suit a particular workplace environment or for a personal setting.

A broad range of topics can be covered, including my You are What You Think & Say and Simplifying Aged Care topics. Aged Care issues may not seem relevant in the workplace. However, untold 40 – 70 year olds are frazzled by the complexities of sorting the Aged Care process for their folks. With the right information, it can be made so much easier.

The workshops are engaging, packed full of information and strategies to be implemented immediately. Simple changes can make a difference in your workplace and/or home.

Public and Business Workshops

You Are What You Think & Say – 120 minute workshop – designed to help you develop an awareness of the impact of what you allow into your head and out of your mouth. We’re a product of what we say both to and about ourselves. Learn some take home strategies to create some different words and habits, plus ways to calm your mind and boost your confidence.

Aged Care Explained – 120 minute workshop – explaining how the Aged Care system works in Australia, how to register the elderly in the system and ways to find the right professionals to ensure a quality outcome for the people for whom you care.

You Are What You Think & Say

New to my repertoire is You Are What You Think & Say:
Check the Barometer in your Workplace …

Let me enthuse your workplace by looking at the part our Thoughts and Words play in achieving our objectives.

Choose what you need:

You Are What You Think & SayThe Power of the Mind and our Words

What we allow into our heads impacts thoughts, behaviour, our outlook and ultimately, productivity. Ever thought about the way you speak to yourself? We become what we think and say. Feed your brain on new, more edifying input and watch it transform, developing better ways of thinking and behaving. Learn some take-home strategies for developing awareness, calming the mind and boosting self-esteem and confidence.

Life HappensDealing with the Tough Stuff

Grief comes in a multitude of packages, most of which don’t relate to death. Unresolved grief can lead to depression, distraction, discord, dependence and disillusionment. Learn how to help colleagues to drop the ‘I’m coping’ mask by giving people the space and chance to talk – if and when they are ready. Listening is an under-rated skill, but can literally be a life-saver.                                                                                                                                                                                            ### Not a Mental Health or Counselling workshop

Aged Care ExplainedSimplifying Aged Care Issues

This seemingly unrelated topic is creating very costly distractions in the workplace. With parents phoning and constantly demanding attention during work time, staff are often frazzled. They need time to search for an Aged Care Home vacancy, but where to start? Learn about the professionals who can do the entire process, allowing your staff to become more attentive and productive at work.

Dealing with DiversityBeing Comfortable with Diversity

Everyone brings their own physical, emotional and energetic force to the workplace. How we interact with others who are different to ourselves will impact both their happiness and our own. Learn about simple changes that can make a vast difference.

What qualifies me to run Workshops?

Through dealing with life’s unexpected curveballs and navigating many types of challenges, I have experience to share with others. Successfully navigating challenges depends on the choices we make.

I lived in a home with disability after Mum lost a leg in a car accident in 1974. Aged 74 she became a paraplegic after surgery didn’t go as planned. I understand what it’s like when people stare or talk about someone just because they’re different (Relates to Dealing with Diversity program).

Unscrambling Grief takes you on the roller-coaster ride of emotions we experienced when we lost two children. Grief comes in a multitude of packages, but there can be light at the end of the tunnel – if we choose to see it (Relates to Life Happens program).

When my mother-in-law needed our emotional support, I was tearing my hair out filling in paperwork for that illusive Aged Care Home vacancy! With her safely and happily settled in a wonderful home, I discovered that professionals could have helped me.

Why had no one told me about them? Perhaps because, like me, they didn’t know they existed. With research I found 5 different types of professional who could have made things easy. After interviewing them, I wrote a book to simplify things for others. (Relates to 5 Easy Ways to Solve the Aged Care Puzzle).

Life experiences are the best way to learn a lesson!
