Tragedy happens and life goes on.









Meg McElwain is a resilience expert.  She uses personal stories of faith, hope and survival during and after her infant son’s illness and death from a rare childhood cancer to help others master resilience.

Resilience is the ability to recover or bounce back from adversity and hardships.  Resilient people feel stronger and more capable to cope with change and stress.

The beauty of resilience is there are learnable skills that Meg encourages in her keynotes and training sessions.

Resilient people demonstrate great flexibility, high energy, mental agility and consistently perform at their highest level.  They have strong relationships and support networks that help them amplify their productivity and results.

Meg’s keynotes and workshops for leaders, managers and teams help them build practical strategies in mental, emotional and physical health.

Topics Include:

Five Techniques for Resilience – A program designed to inspire individuals toward personal resilience and help them discover their own potential and maximize their own resilience abilities.  Participants will gain a sense of their own strengths and development areas with a unique insight into the five key sources of resilience.

The Resilient Leader – This program is ideal for managers and leaders who influence others.  The curriculum focuses on creating a positive healthy work environment that nurtures resilience for teams.  Participants will learn practical strategies and tools to effectively influence and support resilience and minimize stress at work.

Witness to a Miracle – Meg penned a blog series in 2013 by the same name for The Charlotte Observer about the personal struggle and deep Christian faith that carried her through the darkest days of Mitchell’s battle with cancer.  She talks about how Mitchell achieved remission but later relapsed before she had to give Mitchell back to God.  This keynote address is perfect to inspire women of all ages toward living a more meaningful and purpose driven life.
