I am a dynamic and energetic speaker and facilitator, available for online and in-person speaking engagements.
Contact me about speaking on any of the following three areas:
BODY IMAGE AND WELLBEING
I have 16 years' experience in research and evaluation of programs to promote body image in men, women, children, and adolescents.
I can speak to a range of audiences about how we can use the latest evidence to boost body image to enhance health and wellbeing.
MAKING RESEARCH MATTER
I have expertise in using design thinking to enhance end-user engagement, and I am the CEO of a research translation organisation, the Body Confident Collective.
I am available for keynotes and workshops with researchers and research students about shifting academic mindsets to learn from design thinking, startups and entrepreneurship to have real research impact.
MATERNAL MENTAL HEALTH
Mothering is harder than it has ever been. Unrealistically high standards, comparisons with other Mums, and reduced opportunities for self care mean that mothers are experiencing stress, burnout, and mental health issues at higher rates than ever before.
I bring my own experiences together with the research and literature to create a powerful message for Mums. Self care is actually critical to rebuild, and then refill your cup.
“Zali was able to explain design thinking so clearly, and I was able to immediately see how well this would apply to our research projects. Her approach is such an efficient way to capture end-user perspectives for maximum impact with our interventions.”
