Ann Douglas Speaker Biography


They don't call her “The Mother of All” for nothing. Ann Douglas has been Canada's go-to guide to all things parenting since the publication of her now-classic The Mother of All Pregnancy Books over a decade ago. And with the publication of her most book, Parenting Through the Storm, she has established herself as a passionate advocate for mental health and wellbeing.

A mother of four and creator of an internationally successful book brand (The Mother of All®), Ann is known for her down-to-earth style and her ability to translate the latest scientific research into practical, real-world advice.

If you’ve tuned into her parenting column for CBC Radio, you already know that Ann speaks passionately and openly about the joys and challenges of parenting, what actually encourages parents and children to thrive, and how “the village” can and must to a better job of supporting parents (because if it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to support that child’s parents).

An experienced speaker who speaks with authority about parenting, mental health, and self-care, Ann has delivered keynote addresses and customized workshops to audiences ranging in size from 20 to 1500. And she's delighted audiences of parents, educators, healthcare professionals, social service workers, professional communicators, women, and business groups. Her clients have included Health Canada, Alberta Children’s Hospital, the Adoption Society of Alberta, Toronto Public Health, Bell Let’s Talk, TD Bank Group, the Waterloo Region Family Network, the Etobicoke Brighter Futures Coalition, and the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa.

If you've already met Ann via her books, you know what you can expect from her presentations: to be inspired, informed, and entertained.

Parenting Through the Storm: Parents can make a difference when it comes to children’s mental health. That’s a powerful and reassuring message if you’re a parent and you’ve been alarmed by recent newspaper headlines about anxiety, depression, and other mental health difficulties in children and adolescents. In this practical and idea-packed presentation, parenting author Ann Douglas will share some highlights from her latest book "Parenting Through the Storm: How to Handle The Highs, The Lows, and Everything In-Between" — a book for parents who have a child who is struggling with a mental health challenge. The workshop focuses on parenting strategies, advocacy skills, and stress management and coping skills. Topics to be discussed include self-care, self-compassion, creating your own support network, and lifestyle matters (nutrition, fitness, sleep, and making time for fun). This presentation is based on interviews with more than 50 parents who have walked this walk and who are eager to share their best advice with other parents. Watch Ann being interviewed on Canada AM about her book.

Big-Picture Parenting: Are you taking a big-picture approach to parenting (in other words, parenting with your hopes and dreams for your child and your family in mind)? Ann Douglas, a bestselling parenting author and the weekend parenting columnist for CBC Radio, simplifies the conversation about what it takes to raise happy, healthy kids by highlighting the key fundamentals: the importance of tuning into your child’s needs, being mindful of your parenting decisions, building relationships with other parents, and prioritizing your own physical and mental health. Expect a compelling mix of practical advice and lively anecdotes from this popular and engaging speaker. This eye-catching graphic recording captures some of the key ideas in this one-of-a-kind presentation
