In the Hot Seat - Stereotyping non-traditional roles
Facilitator: Maureen Kyne,
Workplace Crisis Strategist and Educator

Maureen started her career in health, then construction to running her own business.  

She knows first-hand what it like to counteract stereotypes in the workplace and her workshop will give you a chance to talk about stereotyping and tips for managing and responding to it.

The workshop is centered around personal development where each person learns more about themselves and why they may react or not react to certain situations. 

Since 2003, Maureen transformed her career from an extensive, corporate experience into the hugely successful and widely popular facilitator and business motivator that she is today. 

With extensive experience driving behavioural and cultural change, Maureen’s focus is ensuring your most important asset - your ‘people’ – and you - don’t end up at the wrong place at the wrong time.
