About Heart@Work

About Heart@Work it’s always been about Kindness, Marketing and Relationships. Kindness is really powerful. What are you willing to stand up for?

About Heart@Work was launched in 2001, by producing two Kindness Conferences and the Kindness Hero Awards. Offering workshops, training, public speaking. My clients saw a huge impact when they create more happiness opportunities for their employees within their company.

Turning around toxic workplaces to become productive, profitable and happier places to be in, as well as helping unhappy people to become happier. The ROI turns out to be higher productivity, less friction, more communication, all-around healthier workplace. I created a white paper about this.

If you are in this space, wanting more productivity out from your employees or co-workers book an appointment with me.   Let’s do a call to see how I can help you.


By working with non-profits, employees and social committees who really wanted things to change, they could see the shifts happening easily.

Some businesses couldn’t see how Kindness would work, what a shame. However IT companies and nonprofits got it and were being successful at it. Many times they scale up fast, they leave the employees in the dust. The staff leave or they may hang in to see if there are any changes. Unless the Leadership team can respond to begin create a happier workplace culture, there will be many upsets and challenges.

After producing two Kindness Conferences in 2000 and 2001 and produced the “Kindness Hero Awards,” over 43 awards have been presented. Kindness Hero Awards and how to nominate someone. More than twenty years have past, and people tell me we need kindness more than ever, in 2020.

In 2020 due to COVID four Kindness@Work conferences were produced virtually..The whole play list is on youtube, of which you can listen to the multiple speakers.

In 2005, my opportunity to turn-around a non-profit by using initiating the welcome of Kindness for the employees, the board, and its patrons.  This non-profit organization was riddled with bullies, negative gossip and the workers suffered. Within three months the board and staff could start to feel they were cared about, there was less friction, more cooperation and people were just happier to come to work. It was funny, that some people didn’t like this kind of abundance, they would attack me, whenever they had an opportunity. Too bad!

On the Blog of Heart@Work, I’ve been writing about Relationships, Kindness,  Marketing., lately about Wellness, because relationships matter. It’s about the little things we do for each other, it’s about how we connect with each other, what we stand for, what and how we say things that people get about us. How we show up and what we want other people to know about us. Some say, it’s the Random Acts of Kindness that people like. There are so many organizations now in 2021 that are promoting Kindness and now saying how much of a difference it makes.

The Key Values
Honesty, Kindness, Social Business, Paying it Forward, Social conscious and of course having fun, along my journey!

What I have learned is that we have the power, to take action, to plant a seed, to write positive words, offer encouragement to someone else. You can even just share a smile, especially for those who don’t have one and need it the most.

Every human action has a spiritual impact on the world. Become a better human being and make a difference.
