3 REASONS TO BOOK PAULA:
She’s Relatable. Paula has an authenticity and conviction on stage that connects with people’s hearts and inspires growth and change.
She will craft her message to impact the specific challenges facing your audience.
Research-Based Tools & Tips. Paula uses her STRONG ® (STress Resilience ON the Go) and TNT’s (Tiny Noticeable Things) to empower audiences with tools they can use immediately.
“I wanted to take a moment to say that your talk at APIC was very effective and impactful. I must say I am pretty cynical about such talks, and my former boss was also very cynical but she could clearly see as you went through your own [burnout] scenario how she perfectly displayed all the symptoms you described and it helped her accept her new role and mourn less her old one.
It helped her realize what tools she would need as she deploys as the head of infection prevention at a new organization. You also had taken the time to find out what we do professionally and your examples were relevant. So thank you for having the respect for your audience to care enough to customize your talk and share your experiences.”
Director Infection Prevention and Clinical Epidemiology at UC San Diego Health
