Main Topics Drs. Joyce Carols Speaks about


1. Keynote:

“With a Success Mindset, Failure is Not an Option!”

This is the keynote Joyce talks about on stages all over the globe.

Drs. Joyce knows whereof she speaks.  Listen to her as she shares her riveting life story of how she overcame a broken neck and beat the 99% odds stacked against her that she would be paralyzed for the rest of her life.  She still eventually managed to play at the World Qualifying Games for the National Field Hockey Team. And, at a later point in her life, she barely survived a near death experience after a severe allergy attack.

As a firm believer that a person can achieve, do and overcome anything for as long as you set your mind to it, Joyce shares her expertise and motivational insights and the psychology behind it, to encourage and empower her audience.

You are in control of your life.  You have a choice every minute of every day.  What happens to you is not what determines your life; it’s what you choose to do with it.

2. "The Mind Blowing Leader/Speaker"

How can you implement a Success Mindset as a leader/speaker to increase your own performance and that of your team? As a Speaker you can use it to improve your own performance on stage and better connect with your audience. 

3. "The impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on your employees' Behavior"
How can we best prepare and thrive in an fast changing era. People are wired to resist change and tend to cling to the known. In this day and age as a leader you should be prepared and know what the influence of AI will be on your company and employee behavior. And how you can deal with the fast changes and how to diminish the resistance and change to an adoptive learning behavior.
