Meet Meg Soper, Motivational Speaker
Who Is Meg Anyway?
Meg Soper is a leading motivational humorist speaker for organizations in North America.
She has a unique perspective, combining the insights and experiences of her last thirty years spent as a Registered Nurse, stand-up comedian, and ultimately a motivational speaker.
A veteran performer, she got her start at various comedy clubs across Canada, and over the years shared the stage with many leading comedy acts including Ray Romano and Ellen Degeneres.
Her experiences as a staff nurse and operating room nurse in major urban teaching hospitals and regional healthcare facilities shaped her perspective. It taught her how humor can help us effectively deal with stressful situations in our personal and professional lives.
It seemed natural for Meg to combine her talents, and so, she became a leading motivational humorist who helps organizations manage change and create a more positive workplace environment.
Humor Melts Stress!
Meg’s emergence as a workplace motivational speaker was inspired by her ability to make people laugh. She saw how laughter could alter attitudes and help people cope in difficult situations. Out of the pressure-packed environment of the hospital operating room and balancing two careers, Meg realized humor is extremely effective for dealing with stress and managing change.
And how better to motivate and entertain her audiences than through humor and inspiration? That’s why her unique brand of motivational comedy is referred to as “Humor with a Heart”. She inspires people to improve communication, deal with stress, and achieve better balance in their lives while establishing a healthy workplace and home life.
It all comes down to choices. We always have a choice about how we do our work, even if we don’t have a choice about the work itself. We choose the attitude we bring with us to work and to life, and the ability to decide whether any given day will be good or bad. If we have the ability to step back from a situation and see the humor in it, we quickly realize that life can be less stressful.
Remember: Humor melts stress!
