KEYNOTE SPEAKER, FACILITATOR, AUTHOR, RADIO PRODUCER AND COACH
An Entrepreneur , Humanitarian and a Humourist Pat Armitstead has inspired thousands to transform their lives and flourish in the face of adversity. It is to her credit, and testimony to her love of humanity, that she has done this when the events of her own life have been strewn with adversity. In the process she has become one of Australasias pre-eminent speakers and transformation agents of our time. Pat says “ I did not learn about joy by studying joy. I learned about joy by experiencing grief, shame and embarrassment. In a period of great grief and depression I chose not to be medicated. I became re-associated to what was not working in my life and committed to do what it took to restore my physical, emotional and spiritual self. I believed to be fully self expressed required reclaiming my power and living into my full potential”
The Joyology education and philosophy specialises in using communication skills, positive psychology, authentic optimism and humour to reinvigorate individuals and teams. Having worked for over 40 years in leadership roles in education and management Pat believes people flourish when working in a high trust environment that engages them and fosters their wellbeing. She says “People will engage, collaborate and co-create using their signature strengths leading to optimum productivity. They also learn to celebrate difference and use good humoured communication and joy as catalysts for change. “
Her mentor Mike Hutcheson, past MD of Saatchi and Saatchi Auckland once said " Pat Armitstead would be one of the most emotionally intelligent people I know"
