Keynote/Workshop Topics

I teach athletes, businesses, parents, students, and entrepreneurs how to build the mental strength they need to become the strongest and best versions of themselves. Whether you’re a corporation, non-profit, conference, high school, or college, I’d love to talk to you about how I can help your audience learn how to become mentally stronger.

I customize each talk to ensure it resonates with your audience. Here are my most popular programs:

Based on 15 years of research as a psychotherapist, and her own personal experiences overcoming heartache, Amy discovered that the secret to being mentally strong isn’t about what people do—it’s more about what they don’t do. She identified 13 common but unhealthy habits that keep people stuck in life. Giving up those habits makes helps people work smarter, not harder. When they don’t have these unhealthy thoughts, behaviors, and emotions holding them back, their good habits become much more effective.

Based on her international bestselling book that has been translated into more than 40 languages, Amy uses research, examples, and stories to explore:

  • The 3 main types of self-limiting beliefs
  • The 13 habits that rob us of mental strength
  • The exercises that build mental muscle and help us to reach our greatest potential

This can be delivered as a 45 to 60-minute keynote and a Q&A time is optional. It can also be combined with a half day or full day mental muscle building workshop.

When readers kept asking Amy how to raise mentally strong children, she created a parenting manual that would help parents become mental strength coaches for their kids.

When people talk about mental strength, they often offer examples of Navy SEALs or male athletes who seem to embody the epitome of toughness. But, women can be strong too. And while building mental strength requires the same strategies for everyone, women face unique challenges in today’s world. From the gender pay gap to the cultural pressure to look a certain way, it’s important for women to stay strong.

In this program, Amy describes the 13 habits that women need to give up in order to become the strongest and best version of themselves. Amy shares examples, stories, and research that help participants understand:

The advice is practical and actionable and Amy makes a smart differentiation between mental health and mental strength. The personal experiences that helped shape this list make Amy a credible and relatable speaker and one you will admire. We hope to work with her again this year.”

“Amy Morin was perfect for our group. She took us to the depths of her despair, and then like her book, she took us up through the despair by way of realistic steps, not on what to do, but on what not to do. Amy offered our group another way to look at recovery. She didn’t ask us to deny the challenges that face us, instead she provided steps we can use to build our mental strength to move beyond these daily challenges. Amy has a generous spirit and a depth we all resonated with.”

— Mary Henry, Women’s Addiction Services Council

Amy was the keynote luncheon speaker at our annual legal symposium. Attorneys tend to think we are mentally strong, but Amy showed us what mental strength really looks like. I received many compliments for inviting her to speak to our group. She was outstanding!

— Dionne Hamilton, Association of Corporate Counsel Houston Chapter, Board Member and Symposium Chair

The evaluations are rolling in and you clearly were the highlight for our event participants and for me. Your sensitivity and commitment to knowing the group you're engaging with made all the difference for our participants. They felt you were speaking to them from a place of understanding their roles and a personal place of authenticity on the topic. As you know, a lot of effort goes into identifying the right speaker, and it's very rewarding as a planner when the speaker takes in what you've offered and connects with the group by incorporating what may be of particular importance to them. You left participants lifted up and with a sense of a new strategy they might try.

— Sheri Smith, Coordinator Maine Touchpoints Project
