Speaker Bio

Joni Peddie is a Professional Keynote Speaker, Executive Coach and Strategic Facilitator. Leaders and Teams navigating the unprecedented change in their businesses need to learn the various skills that underpin mental, emotional and physical, and purpose-driven  wellbeing. Resilience is so much more than 'bounce-back'. It is also about being prepared and 'response-ready' and therefore able to 'bounce-forward' after adversity, in order to ride the waves of change. The waves of change don't only come in sets of 7 these days. There are unexpected, larger and more forceful waves coming at us, which  are much harder to surf! This requires mental, emotional and physical- fitness, which are ALL underpinned by having enough energy and personal agility. We all want to be  'future-fit', but need to know the  'how to. The technical skills are not enough on their own. Good business strategies, decisions and execution happens when people work well in teams, are motivated, can handle 'change' and most importantly TRUST each other. These are people issues.

Joni Peddie, as a Behavioural Strategist focuses on the people issues. Her business is called Resilient People.

Joni, and her team deal mainly with middle and senior management teams, sharing pragmatic everyday skills to boost Mental & Emotional Resilience, as well as Wellbeing in the workplace. The worldwide trend is that people are working longer hours, mainly from their home desk, and therefore in essence 'living at work'. They may have loads of 'drive', motivation and the desire to be 'of value' to their team / business,  but they are also vocal about feeling depleted, emotionally drained, fatigued and low on energy. Add this to feeling  'stress-rich', 'time-poor' and suffering ‘decision-fatigue’.... and it's not surprising that 'mental wellbeing' issues are so topical. These range from being overwhelmed to high anxiety, burnout, depression and unfortunately suicide. It's heart wrenching that in this worldwide pandemic, and health crisis: that on average one Doctor commits suicide every day, in America. There are many other red flags, and statistics from around the world that are equally staggering. If you're a Doctor in a Hospital, Partner in a Practice or Leader in a Business, you are obligated to up-skill your people, to ensure that they can ride these very different sets of waves and embrace the onslaught of change that is hitting all of us! These exhilarating times, can also be 'crushing' times for some people.

Joni Peddie's Purpose Statement has been clarified over the 36 years of working in Multinational businesses, and for the last 24 years of running her own business. Joni walks the talk of her personal purpose statement: 'To inspire actionable resilience, for people to live their best, and most optimal life!'

Joni’s first book, launched 6 years ago (& still highly relevant)  is called “The FAB Quotient: Experience resilience and fight fatigue”. She is busy writing her 2nd book called “5 specific and practical ways to BOOST your Resilience”.

Joni speaks at conferences, on large ‘virtual’ platforms and /or 'hybrid' conferences.

She facilitates team meetings (also virtually) on a variety of topics including:  Harnessing Change / Building Trust / How to develop Emotional Intelligence? / Performance issues / Maximising Team Dynamics  / The Enneagram of Personality styles for Team Performance / Boosting Resilience / Mental Wellbeing / 'Sleep your way to the top' & Neuro-Leadership topics ”.

As a Behavioural Strategist, her fascination lies in meeting and working with people from around the world. She is based in South Africa, and loves to travel and immerse herself in different cultures. Luckily her hubbie, Gavin shares the same interests and they choose off-beat places, both locally & internationally to travel to each year. (COVID protocols  'approved')

Joni loves the outdoors and being active: hiking, trail and road running. She has 5 Comrades Marathons (90km) , and 6 Two Oceans Ultra Marathons (56km) under her belt.

Joni’s pride, joy and ‘true delight’ in her life are her two daughters: both in their 20's,   and living their own 'purpose-driven' lives, in their (very different) careers.

Keynote Talks:
The 'resilience' topic is broad. Joni has many certifications that underpin this extensive topic. It is therefore fairly easy to tailor according to the needs of the client / theme of the conference.

The Keynote Talks  can also be extended into half day, full day or a 'journey' of workshops.

Some teams schedule a 'journey' of workshops : one per month, throughout the year. These are coupled with a Resilience Up Assessment at the start. It is then rewarding to measure ROI at the close out of the  'journey'.
