A link to a video interview of Noreen Braman talking about her presentations.

"Great content and Ms. Braman was especially engaging. The examples were relatable and she was funny."

"I feel better!"

"Informative and concrete techniques. Very good."

"Helpful, practical information. Worthwhile!"

"Not your usual CLE class - but it was wonderful."

“In today’s stressful and uncertain environment, I think it was wonderful to have something positive to look forward to every week. Today’s lecture on laughter could not have come at a better time.”

“Thank you for presenting this class. I appreciate the amount of work you did to prepare the course, pull together all the reading material, exercises, and resources, and deal with Zoom technology. I am glad I had your guidance and the class structure for company and support.”

What Well-Being Habits

Enhance Resilience?

Laughter? Mindfulness? Gratitude? Happiness? The Sense of Purpose?

All of them can! Let Noreen introduce one or all of them to your employees, members, clients, patrons or family!

Do you need a keynote speaker with a compelling story for your event?

The Smile Side of Life is your source for engaging, fun, and purposeful well being programs,

whether a one-hour webinar or five-session workshop.

Event Planners: No matter what the theme or audience is for your conference, there is one thing all conferences have in common – the need to build in time for meaningful breathers that relieve stress, encourage interaction between attendees, and add some laughter – not only for the fun of it, but for the health of it!

Whether as a keynote presentation, or the last session before sending everyone home, a Laughter Break will not only create fond memories of your event, but also give them practical and fun ways to boost resilience and enhance well-being.

What is Well-Being?

Well-being is the part of Wellness that involves all the elements contributing to life satisfaction. Developing well-being enhancing habits can add to your resilience - your ability to manage when things get difficult and stressful. Some well-being habits also help with wellness, which incorporates both your physical and emotional health. A two for one!
