Anna-Louise Bouvier gave an outstanding keynote presentation at three Positive Schools conferences in 2017. She inspired delegates to take better care of their emotional health without seeming critical or condescending in any way. Rather, her use of humour, her insight and her passion inspired delegates to consider how they could manage their stress more effectively and gain more emotional value from life. In particular, Anna-Louise encouraged delegates to set foot on a path to good emotional health with realistic sized steps and achievable goals. In addition to being a consummate presenter, Anna-Louise is also a fabulously efficacious professional and a joy to spend time with. We look forward to welcoming her back on board at future events.

At Australian Ethical we believe in providing our people with a motivating and inspiring environment including looking after their health and wellbeing. Anna Louise’s program has been fantastic, providing them with tools and skills to thrive in an often stressful and demanding environment. The program is delivered with a lot of fun and humour and has been enthusiastically received by the team.”
— Phil Vernon, Managing Director, Australian Ethical Investments - March 2017
Anna Louise’s HBAW program has been really well received by the AEI team and has brought about habitual changes in our workplace. The timing of the program was particularly relevant as we transitioned to an agile workplace. Anna Louise really energised people to embrace the benefits of the work spaces, collaborate around the survey findings and help us build a healthy culture.
— Fiona Horan, Head of HR, Australian Ethical Investments - March 2017

Anna–Louise is both highly experienced and charismatic, which came across at our recent event. As an MC, she is warm, professional and insightful. As a presenter, she is knowledgeable, energetic and engaging. The feedback from our delegates was nothing short of exceptional and we were delighted with Anna-Louise, both as a presenter and MC.
— Cass Brownlow Davies, Corporate Health & Wellbeing Summit

Anna-Louise presents with so much energy that it immediately lifts an event, especially a conference style event. She adapts each presentation to suit the type of conference. Always organised and an absolute pleasure to work with.
— Veronica Lake, Mental Health in the Workplace Conference, The Australian Women’s Leadership Symposium

Anna-Louise brought an enormous amount of energy into the room, which had a really positive impact on the audience throughout the morning. It’s never easy to make a group of people laugh, engage and decide to make life changes - all before 9am, but somehow Anna-Louise made it happen! The audience told us they found her presentation to be lively, informative and incredibly inspiring.
— Kate Van de Peer – Global Manager, Steptember

Anna-Louise’s workshop for the men at State Street was insightful, engaging and motivating. Her humour and manner relaxed the attendees, and we found it to be not only an entertaining session, but an informative one. Her workshop has reminded me of the importance of physical and mental well-being, and I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of hosting a similar event for their employees.
— Ian Martin, Head of State Street Global Services, Southeast Asia and Pacific and Head of State Street Global Markets, Australia & NZ
We were delighted to have Anna-Louise speak at our networking event “Attracting and Retaining Your Workforce” where she highlighted Happy Body At Work’s program. Anna-Louise is a fantastic speaker and her passion and enthusiasm engaged the audience throughout and had our office still talking about it days after! I highly recommend Anna-Louise and the Happy Body At Work Team.
— Amy Cotterill - Senior Consultant, Stirling Anderson

If you want someone to ‘wake-up’ an audience then I highly recommend Anna-Louise as an engaging, funny, warm and affectionate speaker. She cleverly mixed in her evidenced based theories with some practical ‘on your feet’ strategies. She has a very authentic style and simple messaging which packs a punch. Our guests loved her!
— Brigid Walsh - GM, Golden Door Health Retreat & Spa, Elysia

Anna-Louise brings vivacity and humour to the room. She is engaging, entertaining and delivers such a simple, yet effective message that everyone can apply to their lives. It was a pleasure to listen to her speak and people at Cuscal have provided overwhelmingly positive feedback.

Anna-Louise kept our team focused and interested whilst she introduced what could be boring information in a very engaging and entertaining way. Our group haven’t laughed so much in ages and they were being educated at the same time. Well done!
— Annette Donaldson, OHS Coordinator, Sanitarium

High energy, humorous and practical. It was the perfect mix of serious information and knowledge along with a very funny and engaging delivery. She has the unique ability as a speaker to both entertain and educate. She exceeded all our expectations.

Anna-Louise provided a very insightful and valuable presentation into Healthy and Happy Bodies at the Happiness, Health and Wellbeing @ Work Conference. She delivered her presentation with great energy, provided practical tips and she was very engaging from start to finish. I would highly recommend her for any conference.
