Full Presenter Profile & Bio

Not having any idea of what she wanted to be when she grew up except, she definitely wasn’t going to be a doctor, because that's what her parents wanted her to be, Jenny chose to follow her heart and study what she was interested in. Always fascinated by how things worked, she spent countless hours exploring her world, collecting plant specimens, insects and spiders and conducting various experiments at home, some of which didn’t quite produce the expected outcome like the time she set the kitchen on fire and the occasion she caused the living room ceiling to collapse by flooding a bathroom. 

Her curiosity, love of learning and desire to be of service to others took her to first to nursing, qualifying as a Nightingale Nurse and then to medicine, after discovering that scrubbing bedpans and cleaning up vomit wasn’t her perfect career choice after all. Her goal was to enter general practice and she set up her own group medical practice in the northern suburbs of Perth, practising family health care as she believed it should be practised, with care, dedication and love. 

But as her business grew ever more successful, Jenny was increasingly frustrated by what she saw as a medical system relying on Band-Aid solutions rather than a willingness to get to the nitty-gritty of what was really making people sick, and more importantly what would keep them well? 

Which is why she left clinical practice for a voyage of discovery into the emerging neuroscience, behavioural science and positive psychology, translating the findings into simple practical tools to enhance thinking, healthy habits and smarter ways of working. 

Today as a speaker, author and trainer Dr. Jenny works with business leaders, educators and those keen to develop a greater self-awareness of why we think and behave the way we do, to challenge unhelpful thinking patterns, and tap into what works to help us all to be better humans and achieve the success, fulfillment and happiness we desire.

Speaker Topics

Fit, Fast and Focused: Thats Smart Work
With increased productivity and efficiency on the top of everyones to do list, we just forgot one thing. That to be a smarter sharper thinker we need to use our brain the way it was best designed, starting with better brain health for greater adaptability, focus and mindful attention, because overwork is the fastest route to high stress and burnout.
Resilience Builders: Why mental toughness and grit is not enough

The Future of Healthcare: Who cares for the carer?
We need to talk, about what the heck is going on in health care (aged care, allied health etc) With 40% of practitioners at the point of burnout and a health system no longer capable of servicing the need of our communities, the need for change is critical and comes down to what we can do as individuals, leaders and managers to reinstate a culture founded on C.A.R.E

We spend over 1/3 of our lives at work so surely there has to be something more than just a pay check that gets us to keep showing up Discover the 4 Ps that motivate us to work well, achieve more, collaborate with others and create greater happiness at work
Thriving by Design: It is a Brave New World
