Susan David’s best-selling book and hugely popular TED talk (see opposite) have made her one of the most sought-after expert speakers on behaviour change, peak performance and leadership in the world.

Her theory of “Emotional Agility” argues that the way we navigate our inner world – our everyday thoughts, emotions, and self-stories – is the single most important determinant of our life success. It is a process that enables us to navigate life’s twists and turns with self-acceptance, clear-sightedness, and an open mind, thereby allowing us to ignite positive change.

As well as delivering powerful keynote speeches, Susan can deliver workshops tailored closely to the needs and aims of you audience.
