About Yvonne Heath
Yvonne Heath’s incredible message, I JUST SHOWED UP, is funny yet poignant and empowers everyone who hears it. “Grief” is coming, but the good news is we can develop the skills to take better care of ourselves and each other. With 27 years as an RN working in the healthcare system, becoming an author and sought-after speaker, Yvonne’s expertise will impact you in ways you never thought possible.
“I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY!”
Have you ever said these things or felt this way, when someone was in crisis? Divorce, diagnosis, mental health issues, job loss, trauma, the death of a loved one—it’s all “grief”! Are you fearful you might do or say the wrong thing, so you avoid?
Yvonne shares her message—with heart and humour— using intelligence, empathy and genuine uplifting spirit, to combine a powerful mix of personal insights and lessons. Yvonne demonstrates how we can live well, die well, and transform our world into a happier place. Yvonne is the Founder of the I Just Showed Up movement (Teaching people of all ages to show up for themselves and others, so they are empowered and resilient when “grief” arrives) and Love Your Life to Death.
Featured Workshop Speaker
Jennifer has been designing and leading digital innovations for 20 years. In that time, she has achieved a number of industry ‘firsts’ with hundreds of projects to her credit from the very early dot-com boom/bust adventures to advanced technical solutions and software for non-profits, banks, and Fortune 500s companies.
Jennifer decided to return to her hometown of Sudbury in 2008 and ventured into the increasingly competitive mining industry as an IT Consultant. Her consulting work involved very detailed analysis of numerous departments and the various processes currently being used in this sector. The information that she gathered included but was not limited to the sectors information management systems for energy, bulk material movement, lab information, inventory management, asset management, process management and KPI (key performance indicators) reporting.
Jennifer was shocked to learn how this sector was very slow to adopt technology, the lack of software innovation, and was concerned about the divergent and very proprietary options with relatively low ROI (return on investment). This information compelled in Jennifer, to create MineIQ. What started as a centralized ‘control room in a box’ gradually, over 4 years, has become the fastest and most sustainable way to digitally transform the mining operations. She can’t wait for the inventions that are yet to come. According to Jennifer, she most engaged and happy when she can implement technology to make life and processes easier, usable, efficient and effective.
Jennifer will focus on technical confidence that allows us to embrace, integrate, and lead our businesses through digital evolution.
