Keynote Speaking

Check out my show reel to learn more about the topics I speak about

Kate is a professional speaker on topics including:

  • SMART time management
  • SMART time management for Doctors
  • Smash your productivity!
  • How to get back 30 hours of lost time a month
  • Me Time
  • Overcoming the Superwoman Myth
  • How to attract, engage and retain top talent

Smart organisations are constantly on the lookout for new ways to attract and retain top talent and to manage staff Work/Life integration, health and well being. Smart organisations are looking beyond traditional HR policies and benefits to improve employee engagement and to provide employees with greater options and control over the non-work aspects of their lives –ensuring that their staff work ‘smarter’ and have healthier and better integrated lifestyles.

Why? Because it makes good business sense in circumstances where:

  • 63% of Australian employees are not engaged at work, meaning they lack motivation and are less likely to invest discretionary effort in company goals or outcomes[1]
  • 16% of Australian employees are actively disengaged indicating they are unhappy and unproductive at work and liable to spread negativity to co-workers[1]
  • Only 24% of Australian employees are committed to their jobs and likely to be making positive contributions to the company they work for[1]
  • The cost of replacing just one employee can be as high as 150% of their annual salary [2].

“Kate Christie’s keynote presentation on the 7 Mistakes Leaders Make (in relation to Effective Time Management) was insightful and entertaining and “right on the money.” She readily engaged and easily sustained the attention of a large room of over 300 Principals and Assistant Principals. Many of her observations hit home, rang bells and provided the audience with opportunities for self-reflection on how we manage our time as leaders and how our behaviours influence and impact those around us. I was immediately inspired to compile detailed notes throughout her presentation on her SMART time management strategies and have begun to implement these, with beneficial results. What I also appreciated, was the opportunity to meet with Kate after her presentation and discuss her concepts one-on-one – I found Kate to be very accommodating, with connecting empathy. She clearly understood right where I was at with all that she had to offer and humbly provided further advice. Time well spent”! David Jenkins

We engaged Kate to present to our team of consultants. We work in the fast paced world of recruitment where time truly is of the essence. I loved Kate’s workshop. The information was well planned with our specific time management challenges in mind and was presented with passion and humour. Kate is an inspiring presenter – we were left wanting to make some immediate changes to our time management habits! Nicola Phillips

We needed a dynamic and engaging speaker for the Premium Bank to present to our Women in Business customers. A colleague recommended Kate to us and she was both insightful and inspirational. With her vibrant, and fun personality, Kate connected with our audience immediately and delivered content that they could use when they get back to their office. Kate was very easy to work with. She delivered clear, strong and practical messages with humour and certainly retained the attention of our guests.
