"I am hugely passionate about translating the evidence so that you can use research driven methods to make effective and sustainable changes to your health...starting today. That's why I love speaking, as it allows the audience immediate access to the most effective ways to change their health for the better."

Are you looking for a speaker who both understands the research, and can communicate it in a way that is easily digestable for everyone?


I focus on ensuring my talks are easy to understand, relevant to my audience and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Dr Heather McKee x Rituals x Happy Place Tatton Park

I had an absolute blast running workshops for Rituals at the #happyplacefestival. It is such a thrill to engage with audiences and equip them with tools that will make real change to their health and wellbeing. Over 300 people attended and it was such a pleasure to help them learn more about how to develop kindness habits which will ultimately bring more joy, happiness and health into their lives.

Dr Heather McKee x The Healthy Habits Series

Dr Heather McKee x Happy Place Festival London

I was honoured to be invited to present workshops for Rituals as part of the Happy Place Festival, that focused on the art and science of self care. This is a subject dear to my heart as it underlies all of our habits. Ultimately, you are your primary resource – if you’re not well then you don’t perform well or live well. You simply cannot be the best person, the best mother, the best friend you can be, without taking the time to invest in your most precious asset, yourself.

"We recently had Dr. Heather McKee in to speak to a group about “Small changes, big results. How to create healthy habits that last all of 2018” and I couldn’t recommend it enough. Heather was very informative and very interesting. Her interactive approach made the room feel very welcome and comfortable to ask questions. She is highly engaging with the room and her use of handouts in the room makes the process easy to work through. It is great to get some actual live practise in the room using the worksheet. Heather was very motivating and made the session very interesting for everyone. I would recommend her sessions as her steps to personal development are very thought provoking and easy to follow."

Barbara Hoey, International Financial Services

"Heather is a very natural and talented speaker who speaks with warmth and a genuine passion for her subject. Heather is always a delight to work with - very professional, engaging and a true expert in her field. Heather is extremely passionate about helping others and manages to take quite complicated scientific research and make it easy and accessible to all."

Rebecca Fairbrother, Founder, Well Aware

"Heather delivered a perfect, succinct, workshop. Heather was great - it was all digestible and really helpful. After a long day at work, a powerful hour was perfect."

Phoebe, MOS

"I just wanted to say big thank you again for the talk yesterday. I really struggle with being kind to myself, and accepting that what I do or what achieve is enough, even more so since becoming a parent (4years ago) I always think I need to do more. Putting change into practice is really hard for me, but small steps to get there! After your inspiration, I bought a little ‘happy jar’ from one of the stalls yesterday, with little notes to read each day. I shared these with my daughter this morning and she was so eager to read them with me"

Katy, Rituals Science of Kindness talk

"I attended the happy place festival today and listened to your first talk of the day and just wanted to let you know how moved I was by it. I work as a CBT therapist in CAMHS and really surprised myself how emotional I got listening to your talk. Really thought-provoking and definitely made me reflect on the lack of kindness I give to myself. Thank you"

Emelie, Happy Place Festival

"This talk, it's given me hope. I was trying to hard to be happy not realising the small joys all around me"

Sophie, The Art and Science of Kindness workshop

"Your healthy habits workshop helped me learn the habits to bring happiness into my day"

Anna, Healthy Habits workshop

"Many thanks for this and your excellent workshop Heather! It absolutely landed with me and has given me a lot to think about."

Sarah, Rituals event

"Heather presented in a very relaxed manner in a way I really felt I could relate with her. She supported me to take a completely different attitude to instilling new habits."

Small changes, big results talk, Havas

"Really informative, engaging, interactive and relevant to my everyday life, the speaker really knew her stuff!"

The Science of Motivation talk, La Salle
