"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.

Small changes, Big results. How to create habits that last.

We have all experienced a monumental shift in our place, roles, and purpose. Something unprecedented has happened in our lives, where we now live in a time of flux and uncertainty. 

Now more than ever we need our routines, we need our habits to support us. They are our anchors, they keep us steady, they help protect our physical and mental wellbeing and allow us to weather the storm. The certainty of our routines and habits adds a rhythm to our lives, this can help us regain control and structure in our lives when so much uncertainty is around us.

In this 50-minute webinar participants will learn:

  • The top healthy habit myths that are holding us back from success and how to overcome them
  • The science behind making health, productivity and life goals last
  • How to stop making the same failed resolutions and start taking sustainable steps for long term change

By the end of this workshop participants will have created their own healthy habit blueprint to kickstart their own healthy habit journey.

The Happiness of Pursuit.

Creating daily happiness habits to bring more joy back into our lives.

So often we become fixated on how we will become happier when we achieve a particular goal (e.g. get the promotion we want, get to a certain weight on the scales or a particular level of fitness, or get to a specific financial goal). However in the pursuit of these goals, something gets lost, and that something is often our daily happiness itself. This webinar focuses on the key evidence-based habits you can build for creating more lasting happiness in your life, today. 

In this 50-minute webinar participants will learn:

  • The power of habits to increase health and happiness regardless of what is happening in the outside world
  • How habits affect our happiness, productivity and health
  • The top evidence-based ways to boost daily productivity, health and happiness 
  • How to harness the power of habits to bring more happiness into our day to day lives

By the end of this workshop, participants will have created their own happiness habit blueprint to help build resilience to change and create more joy in their lives

In this 50-minute webinar participants will learn:

  • The research-backed but rarely shared principles that support long term habit change
  • How to harness these principles to create supportive habits

By the end of this workshop, participants will have created their own habit maintenance blueprint to support them to create lasting changes in their habits and their lives

The importance of self-care in a challenging world

In this 50 minute webinar, participants will learn:

  • The science behind why kindness is a cornerstone habit to all that we do
  • How to protect themselves from negative news and external influences
  • How critical self-talk can undermine personal productivity and happiness

"Working with Heather was a pleasure from start to finish. From crafting engaging and action-based workshops, through to delivering them with a professional yet natural ease, her passion for her subject really shines through. All of the attendees felt empowered and fully equipped to build on their healthy habits!"

Sally Florey, Unmind

"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!"
