- Real-Time Resilience
This presentation is completely customised to the specific needs of your client. It includes discussion on:
- The what, why and how of psychological resilience
- What’s worked for you in Lockdown? (building personal confidence and coping mechanisms)
- Strategies for keeping anxiety at bay
- Understanding and avoiding ‘catastrophizing'
- Resilience: How can we promote it in ourselves and others? Lessons from research & life
If you’ve ever wondered what the word “resilience” really means, or how you can help yourself and your teams cope with constant challenge and change, then this session is for you. While there are many resilience researchers in the world, the death of her 12-year old daughter in a tragic road accident, makes Dr. Lucy Hone's skillset quite unique.
Co-director of the New Zealand Institute of Wellbeing & Resilience and adjunct senior fellow at the University of Canterbury, Lucy speaks at global conferences, creates online courses, writes books, academic articles and blogs to spread her insights far and wide. Her PhD was acknowledged internationally for its outstanding contribution to wellbeing science and her research is published in leading psychology journals. Her best-selling book, Resilient Grieving, and her hugely popular TED talk, Three Secrets of Resilient People (over 2.6 million views) have delivered Dr Hone’s refreshing approach to global audiences. Her work has been featured in international media including the Guardian and the Washington Post, the BBC and ABC, Channel News Asia, Swedish Television, The Bolt Report Australia and TVNZ.
Lucy’s engaging style, and deep knowledge of these topics, makes her one of the world’s foremost presenters on resilience. However, it is her self-effacing humour, and the way she manages to relate academic findings to her own life (and yours!) that make her sessions so useful and enjoyable.
- The Secrets of Resilient People
Dr Lucy Hone is a globally respected resilience academic who thought she found her calling supporting people to recover following the Christchurch earthquake. She had no idea that her personal journey was about to take her to a far darker place. In this powerful and courageous talk, she shares the three strategies that got her through unimaginable tragedy and offers profound insights on how we can help ourselves and others cope in this era of uncertainty and change.
- Maintaining High Performance in the Age of Burnout
In an increasingly turbulent world, the fact that some people cope better with stress, challenge and change, has become readily apparent. Acknowledging that this year is going to continue to test us, this Keynote address shares the secrets to sustainable high performance, de-mystifying burnout, and providing practical strategies to keep it at bay.

- Resilient Grieving: How can we support those who are coping with loss?
While there are many resilience researchers in the world, the death of her 12-year old daughter, in a tragic road accident, makes Dr Lucy Hone's story quite unique. Appalled by the passive nature of the grief resources she and her family were given, she’s since made it her mission to share contemporary scientific insights about how best to cope with grief and loss. She will share these with us, in her inimitable style in which her tools and strategies are always backed by evidence, but translated using real-life stories in a way that makes her talks both memorable and inspiring, and which has won over audiences on the global stage.
“Somehow the Five Stages of Grief model remains entrenched among helping practitioners, when there’s very little evidence demonstrating the model’s accuracy or utility. Given it’s actually causing more harm than good, it’s time to retire the Five Stages Model, and for all those helping the bereaved to get up to date with new, much more useful, scientific findings on what actually helps us cope with loss,” explains Dr Hone.
