Who am I and what are my areas of expertise?
I am a qualified and registered dietician (RD SA). I am founder and developer of the WELLCULATOR™ and have published Fast Food For Sustained Energy with Tafelberg publishers which is now a bestseller in South Africa. I speak about Performance Chemistry; mostly on managing energy and fatigue levels, increasing intellectual athleticism, weight management, improving health, building resilience and creating and sustaining new positive lifestyle behaviors. I enhance organisational profitability through improving individual performance.
I write for several media sources. I have a regular column in Business Day Health News and also write a monthly column as the ‘Weight Loss Coach’ for Longevity magazine and a general nutrition column for Dischem Benefits magazine.
Why are my presentations of interest or relevance?
The modern work place brings about constant change and pressure, which undermines our ability for deliberate thought, creativity, good health and engagement. Drawing on the multidisciplinary science of high performance, I offer audiences a detailed blueprint with a set of actionable strategies to help busy people take back control of their lifestyle habits, and to be more productive and satisfied as a result.
What makes me different to other speakers in my field?
I am a professional member of the PSASA (Professional Speakers Association of South Africa). I was invited as the first dietician to present at a PSA UK (Professional Speakers Association) conference and continues to present in the United Kingdom on a regular basis.
I have published Fast Food for Sustained Energy which is a realistic and practical guide for people who need to eat on the run. The bestselling book is aimed at active, on-the-go people, leaders, entrepreneurs and professionals who want to be healthy, full of energy and keep their weight under control. The book is published by Tafelberg and is also available in Afrikaans as Kos in ‘in Kits Vir Volgehoue Energie.
How would I describe my delivery style as a presenter?
My delivery style has been described as feminine and chic but with a really original twist. I am a walking, living, breathing example of my proven philosophies.
“Celynn’s energetic, yet relaxed style and simple approach to wellness inspires even the most lethargic to make positive lifestyle changes.” Mark VD Watt, Head: Risk Savings, Momentum
Why use me, and when should you do so?
If you need to energise, interest, motivate and excite employees, managers and directors alike; my keynote presentation or energizer interventions will do so very successfully. I present upbeat and interactive sessions that help audiences fire on all cylinders. I assist delegates to stay physically and mentally engaged at events, conferences and meetings with higher energy levels and more able to concentrate and retain information.
