“Theresa’s presentation is an arresting combination of evidence-based research, quick humor, and practical know-how. The four pillars of her research aren’t just a gimmick—they’re real, powerful tools for making our most important work not just fun, but our best work. She backs up her strategies for improving our average work lives with her own proven expertise, and offers powerful ways to enliven both our experiences and our results.”

"Is there such thing as the perfect job? Maybe for a lucky few. For the rest of us, work often consists of constant multi-tasking and regular interruptions, without time for reflection on what makes us happy and successful. Instead of looking for greener pastures somewhere else, Theresa Glomb presents tangible ways to improve your work life, whatever your job. Simple things like bodily movement, small wins, and mindful moments can drastically improve worker satisfaction and performance. I was in attendance when Theresa presented her research and ideas to a room full of Fortune 100 employees eager to improve their daily lives. She is a dynamic speaker with actionable recommendations that don’t require massive disruption to your routine, but are sure to make it more productive and enjoyable."

"Theresa’s framework of Work Hard, Have Fun, Choose Kind, Be Present is intuitive and can be quickly incorporated into your personal and professional lives. While the concepts are easy to understand, she had me hooked by sharing the research and data behind the theories. I personally am more efficient based on some of the actionable tips she shared (e.g., parking downhill). She’s a great storyteller; making it fun, interesting and memorable!"
C.U.A., Sr. Vice President, HealthPartners

Theresa left us with magnets with her saying "Work Hard, Have Fun, Choose Kind, Be Present" which is a great way to reflect to make sure you are giving the day your everything. "

"I had the privilege of hearing Theresa speak at the Carlson School Women in Leadership conference a few years ago, and her inspirational message, research-driven conclusions and common-sense tactics stuck with me. Most recently, I had the opportunity to invite Theresa to speak to a group of over 100 women in the Finance function at General Mills to share her keynote message on “Make Work Better: Evidence Based Strategies for Improving Your Work Life” and we heard nothing but positive feedback. Her message was extremely relevant and relatable, and her research and examples brought theory to life. Her presentation style is engaging, real and positive, and the tips and tactics she shared are easy to apply, which allows her message to take hold and drive a real change in the lives of the audience. I would strongly recommend Theresa as a speaker and am grateful to have been able to secure such a dynamic and wise woman to present to this network of women leaders."

"Organizations continue to wrestle with issues of employee engagement, diversity and inclusion, innovation, and a variety of other critically important topics to maximize the talent of their people. Fun and the importance of a positive mood are often not at the top of the list, but they should be! Professor Theresa Glomb's ability to present the research and reinforce that working hard, doing meaningful work, and being intentional about a plan to get it all done is possible - and powerful. Work Hard - Have Fun - Choose Kind - Be Present. Dr. Glomb's presentation made an impact and stimulated my thinking about the world of work in a more creative and productive way. "
D.B., Human Resources Executive Council Board President
"Work Hard, Have Fun, Choose Kind, Be Present – these are the frameworks for Theresa Glomb’s presentations that have resonated with me and the staff from MN Center for Youth Development. Ms. Glomb has presented twice to various staff groups within our Center and each time, staff have expressed their appreciation of her message. The presentation offered approachable strategies to view their work/life balance from a new perspective. Using sound research to back up her message truly resonated with our staff. Personally, I have intentionally incorporated mindful activities, body awareness and visualization into my everyday routine and have found great benefit. Her style is engaging and her suggestions are things we can all integrate into our day. I highly recommend that your group experience Professor Glomb’s informative message – she is a well-respected scholar, approachable and a fully-present human being. It has been my honor to get to know her and share her message with my colleagues. "
C. S. Extension Program Leader, University of Minnesota

- "I was able to get usable strategies and implement them right away in both my professional and personal life."
