Topic: Overcoming Overwhelm – Reclaiming Our Time

This is a session for the busy and the overloaded. Between work, family, and personal commitments, many women juggle a lot of balls – but how many are also secretly afraid of dropping one at any minute? In this session, Catherine discusses what it means to be overwhelmed, and the real impacts it can have on our happiness and productivity. She asks the question, “What if doing less can actually help you achieve more and contribute more deeply?” Catherine presents proven strategies to move from feeling overloaded to focused, and will show you how to make a shift in your thinking that will allow for the time and energy that you need to really enjoy your days.


Catherine Schinkel, is the Director of Human Resources with Richardson International, has worked in human resources for over 20 years in a variety of functions and industries including as a Senior Manager at Deloitte and the Director of Human Resources at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

A self-proclaimed expert on feeling overwhelmed, Catherine has – at different times and sometimes all at once – delved into consulting, teaching, playing piano for a choir, participating in a book club, completing marathons and triathlons, and best of all, being a mom to her 9 year-old son, Owen.  She believes that the key to avoiding overwhelm isn’t about getting more things done in less time, but figuring out what are the right things that deserve our time and focus.
