Keynotes with
a Difference

The Training Oasis, Inc. delivers keynotes and facilitates breakout sessions for conferences and corporate events. Our audiences have included executives, managers, entrepreneurs, sales professionals, engineers, and trainers. We are pleased to offer you keynotes with a difference. Even when we work with large groups, we engage the audience through brainstorming exercises, simulations, skits, improvisation, forum role-plays, game shows, and props. Not only will we energize and invigorate your audience. They'll return to work, energized, invigorated and with new strategies and tools to tackle the demands of a rapidly changing environment.

"You just keep getting better all the time. Your advice drawn from your experience, on how to hand in there and persist as learning revolutionaries, was a great message and very well received."

Anne Thornley-Brown,
Professional Speaker

Our keynotes are delivered by Anne Thornley-Brown, Professional Speaker. Anne is the President of The Training Oasis, Inc., a management consulting firm for rapidly changing organizations. Anne has an MBA from York University and 20 years of business experience in a variety of industries. For the past 15 years, she has specialized in working with rapidly changing organizations.

Anne has also worked as a professional actress. (She made her television debut as Spike's Counsellor on the International Emmy Award winning TV series Degrassi Juniour High. Other credits include DOC, Street Time, the Mary Higgins Clarke Mysteries, and Sanity Clause.) This unique blend of business and performing arts experience has helped Anne earn a reputation as an engaging professional speaker and upbeat facilitator with a special flair. From conservative to creative, Anne will design an effective approach for your audience and topic.

"The February Blahs often cause moods to plummet and morale to slump. We asked Anne to come and do a motivational piece about stress-busting and making the most of your life at work, and she delivered a colourful, upbeat presentation that took our participants on a Jamaican Getaway!

Using reggae music, travel videos, vibrant colour and fun activities, Anne helped our staff to see different ways to beat the blahs and regain positive energy at work. Her enthusiasm, willingness to have fun and simple but effective words of wisdom helped make our meeting a success."
