Like putting on the oxygen mask before helping others, self-care offers strength in mind, body, and spirit so we can better serve and connect with others.
We love this quote from Rhea Mehta, a member of our speaker roster, integrative health coach, and CEO of Bowhead Health.
Good self-care applies to your professional life, too – whether you own a business or are climbing the corporate ladder, you’ll benefit from becoming a powerful, inspirational storyteller – there’s no question.
And if you’re a company leader, now is the time to think about how your team is going to hit the ground running after Labour Day! Talk Boutique offers interactive sessions like our workshop below or we can come to you with a custom workshop that will teach your group:
- Communication Essentials
- StoryBuilding Narrative

In May of this year, we delivered our first SpeakEasy Intensive to a group of carefully selected leaders from across Canada, representing diverse sectors, cultures, and thinking – from financial to technology to non-profit. We congregated in the heart of old Québec City for four very full days of workshops, coaching, peer learning and presenting.
The end results surpassed our wildest expectations, with each presenter not only articulating their ideas with poignant authenticity but also with a powerful performance. But that wasn’t even the best outcome. The group arrived a disparate collection of unique leaders and left as a collective of connected thought-leaders and life-long friends.
We’re proud to share a testimonial from one of our SpeakEasy Intensive alumni!
We will be hosting another SpeakEasy Intensive soon – stay tuned!
